Trying to keep them under-Kover! Kim Kardashian grapples with her cleavage-baring dress as she shops with Kanye
09:18 GMT, 3 September 2012
Over the years, she has mastered the art of wearing revealing attire, ut sometimes her tight-ftting wardrobe faces a losing battle to keep Kim Kardashian's curves under control.
And today was one of those days.
The reality star donned a typically revealing outfit for another shopping trip with boyfriend Kanye West in New York.

However, the 31-year-old was seen grappling with her cleavage-baring dress as they perused the aisles of upscale department store Jeffery.
The tuxedo-style black attire kept popping open, forcing Kim to adjust herself to keep things in check.
But while her eye-popping decolletage was on display, it was hard not to notice Kim's terrible footwear.
Under control: Earlier in the day, Kim's cleavage was more covered as she perused the stores with the rapper
The reality star recently got rid of 100 pairs of designer shoes after Kanye labelled her closet as 'ghetto'.
But it appears that the replacement footwear the rapper has chosen for his ladylove are not so desirable.
Kim put the wrong foot forward in the disastrous pair of stone-coloured knee-high boots that seemingly shortened the curvy brunette.

The baggy boots, featuring chap-like covers, looked even more out of place with Kim's dress, which featured a hem line that fell just above the shoe.
The overall look made it appear as if she had fisherman's trousers tucked into waterproof wellies.
Meanwhile the 35-year-old rapper dressed in head-to-toe white, his outfit consisting of a matching jacket, trousers and T-shirt.
The happy couple went on a mission to find more designer outfits by visiting Jeffery and high-end designer boutique Balenciaga.

During their travels, Kanye appeared to have spied an expensive watch that he liked and was seen laughing as he tried it on.
Giddy girlfriend Kim giggled along with him as he mused over buying the flashy accessory.
The couple had just returned from Philadelphia where Kanye performed with Jay-Z at the Made In America festival yesterday.
The couple were flown into the Pennsylvania state via helicopter earlier in the day.
And while Beyonce was seen cheering on her husband Jay-Z at the event, Kim was not seen partying with the mega pop star.

The look of love: The couple couldn't stop staring into each other's eyes
Perhaps Beyonce was deliberately keeping her distance after her fans criticised her for spending time with the reality star back in June.
Beyonce's fans had earlier been outraged at what seemed to be a budding friendship with Kim, whose fame was sparked by her appearance in a sex tape.
The two had stood together to watch their partners in concert, even dancing together at the front of the stage. But their friendship has not developed.
An insider told the New York Daily News that Kim was being strategic in gaining Beyonc's trust.

'She’s hung with them a few times already, but she isn’t saying peep about them,' a source told the paper. She’s not tweeting or taking pictures with Beyonc because she doesn’t want to seem desperate.'
Instead yesterday Kim added a photo to her micro-blog account of herself posing with her friend and PR guru Jonathan Cheban as well as music video director Hype Williams at the event.
In the cheeky image the group made offensive swearing gestures to the camera, by giving one-and-two-finger salutes.
Cheban then posted another of Kim and Kanye outside their helicopter.

Kanye and Jay-Z were the star performers at the two-day event, which will see ticket sales benefit United Way chapters.
Jay-Z organised the event, which also saw performances from the likes of Rita Ora, who is said to be dating Kim's brother Rob.
Others to take to the stage included Santiago, Calvin Harris and more than a dozen other acts.
The festival's second day line-up included Pearl Jam, Run DMC, Odd Future and Drake, who was in the crowd Saturday night.

The festival is being filmed as a documentary by Ron Howard.
Earlier this month, Kanye went through Kim's huge collection of shoes, and clothes, with a stylist in scenes broadcast on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The couple got rid of 100 pairs of shoes but donated every single pair to charity, after Kanye dismissed Kim's huge closet as 'ghetto'.
One person who wasn't impressed was Kim's sister, Khloe.
When Kim said that the shoes had been labelled 'ghetto' by Kanye, Khloe was outraged.

'You gotta have a little ghetto in your life!' she squealed.
Kanye didn't leave his girlfriend with nothing to wear, however, bringing with him a whole rail of replacement threads.
'Look how dope this s**t is,' he said, as he perused through Kim's new stack of clothes.

Kim then tried on a cleavage-baring green dress, with Kanye being very pleased with the results.
'[You're] getting on best dressed lists now,' he raves. 'You're stepping into this territory. You look amazing – it's a new Kim!'
At least the clothes won't be going to waste. Kim tweeted: 'The clothes I got rid of will be up on EBay next month for a charity auction! Going to Life Change Community Church.'
