Kim Kardashian has been very vocal about her weight loss goals -- but is she taking it a little too far?

The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star shared a pretty shocking photo on Thursday on her Instagram page, showing her in a uncomfortable-looking waist trainer from Premadaonna.

According to the company's website, the cincher will not only shape you while you're wearing it, but also allegedly stimulates weight loss. 

Kardashian captioned the photo with the hashtags "#hourglass" "#waisttraining" and "#nophotoshopnecessary."

Kimmie isn't the only one in the family who swears by the corset-y contraption, as Khloe was also seen wearing one back in May.

And they're not alone -- Jessica Alba told Net-a-Porter she "wore a double corset day and night for three months" after giving birth to her second child. "It was brutal, it's not for everyone. It was sweaty, but worth it," she added.

Kim has been on a mission to get her pre-baby back, tweeting about how hard it's been for her to drop the last 15-20 pounds of baby weight.

"Just need to get down to my weight a few years ago. Not gonna complain anymore. Starting diet TODAY! No carbs. crazy workouts," she said earlier this month. "Can't seem to shake this last 15-20 lbs of baby weight. no more excuses. my baby is 1 years old! UGH."

What do you think of her weight loss goal? Is this taking it too far?
