'She took so many pictures': Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's 'concocted plan' to post THAT sexy selfie revealed... as pro surfer is the first to mimic her pose It's the sexy selfie that has caused a media storm and firmly thrusted Kim Kardashian back into the spotlight. After grappling with her post-pregnancy weight since welcoming daughter North West into the world in June, the reality star has been patiently waiting for the perfect moment to make her comeback. And like with most instances related to the Kardashian clan, the master of self-publicity reportedly concocted the perfect plan to show off her bikini body in a VERY revealing Instagram picture on Wednesday.
Who did it better? Pro-surfer Anastasia Ashley has mimicked Kim Kardashian's now famous sexy selfie, which has caused a media storm after the reality star posted it online on Wednesday evening
And it seems that media shy boyfriend Kanye West was also in on the act.
According to sources who told Life & Style magazine, Kim took many, many snaps of herself in her racy white one-piece before the rapper chose the right image to post on social networking sites Instagram and Twitter.
Insiders say after weeks of working hard on her figure, the mother-of-one wanted to make sure that her perfect angles were captured, and in the very best possible light.
Perfectly concocted plan: According to reports, Kim and Kanye concocted a plan to get the perfect selfie of Kim in the swimsuit online
'She took so many pictures and deleted them before she and Kanye decided on the one she posted,' an insider tells the publication. 'He had the ultimate say about Kim putting up the picture and decided which one he liked best.'
The whole stunt looked as if Kim had just merely decided to post a snap from a professional photo shoot.
Kanye seemingly even feigned genuine surprise, retweeting the snap with the accompanying caption, 'HEADING HOME NOW'.
Sources tell Life & Style that Kim simply could not wait to show off the results of her post-pregnancy weight loss, a reported 70 pounds after following the Atkins diet.
Final say: Kanye reportedly had the final say as to which picture of Kim would be posted on Twitter and Instagram
'Kim was dying to get her picture taken in a bathing suit,' the insider told the magazine.
While Kim and Kanye were clearly pleased with the results, the new mother has since received considerable backlash online after the picture hit the web on Wednesday night.
The snap sent shock waves through social media, with the MailOnline receiving a staggering 3,300 comments so far about the picture, with many feeling that it was 'inappropriate' behavior from new mother Kim.
One Twitter user named Lauren wrote: 'Kim Kardashian you are a MOTHER now I don't think posting pictures of your a** on Instagram is appropriate'.

Worse still, Radar reports that Kim received messages from users calling her 'nasty', 'disgusting', and looking 'nauseatingly huge'.
There were also complaints of Kim and Kanye being 'obsessed with themselves' and Kim's behaviour to be a bad example for their daughter North.
Comedienne Jenny Johnson, who is known for dislike of the Kardashians and Chris Brown, re-tweeted Kim's post with the sarcastic comment. 'You're an amazing mom.'
Criticised: Kim's scorching selfie came after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was heavily criticised about her weight throughout her pregnancy
Twitter user Lindsey also poked fun, writing: 'Smh @ Kim Kardashian's latest selfie. Put on some mom jeans and go feed Compas.'
Meanwhile, pro surfer Anastasia Ashley, 26, seemingly approves of the snap, and has attempted to steal Kim's thunder by wearing a similar white swimsuit and recreating her selfie pose.
And while Kim's shot was apparently 'unfiltered', Ashely has fessed up to having a little bit of help with her iPhone image enhancement tools, hash tagging her own snap 'filtered'.
Anastasia appears to be a fan of the reality star.
The day Kim posted her own snap, the fellow brunette tweeted: 'Kim K STILL GOT IT'.
