Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of racy Kim Kardashian Instagram posts. But, are her sexy photos the ones getting the most likes?

We took a look at the last six months of Kim Kardashian Instagram posts to see what kind of content garners the most engagement from the reality star’s followers.

The results may surprise you.

Kim Kardashian Instagram By The Numbers

On February 19, 2012, Kim Kardashian (@kimkardashian) posted on Instagram for the first time.

And, the internet hasn’t been the same since.

Today, there are an impressive 119 million Kim Kardashian followers. 

She’s one of the 10 most followed accounts on Instagram, despite only following 119 people herself.

To date, Kardashian has posted 4,556 times. 

If consistency and frequency are the Instagram keys to success, it’s no wonder Kardashian is one of the queens of the platform.

We decided to take a look at Kim K’s Instagram content over the last six months to see if we could learn anything helpful for our own Instagram accounts.

After all, this is the woman responsible for breaking the internet MULTIPLE times.

It’s not uncommon for Kim Kardashian Instagram posts to get 1, 2 or even 3 million likes.

Certainly, bikini pics and belfies (butt selfies) would be her top performers…right?

While it wasn’t the top performing post of the last six months, the Chanel bikini Kim Kardashian picture sure got the internet talking.

Over 3.9 million Instagram users double tapped this photo.

But, more extraordinary is the 119,000 comments it got as followers argued about slut shaming and embracing sexuality as mom.

He’s not in a lot of Kim Kardashian pictures, but when Kayne (@theofficialkaynewest) makes an appearance, the post almost always gets mad likes.

Maybe 5.2 million Kim Kardashian followers liked this post because they were hopeful Kayne would chill out a little on a vacation.

That didn’t exactly pan out, but we’re digging the filter!

Kim Kardashian Instagram 5: Everybody Loves Babies

Okay, we guess it’s not that surprising this adorable photo was the top performer on the Kim Kardashian Instagram over the last six months.

It was the world’s first look at Kim’s youngest daughter, Chicago (left).

On her right, we’ve got True (daughter of Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson).

And, the little cutie in the tiny Nikes? That’s Stormi (daughter of Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott).

Over 7.2 million Kim Kardashian followers agreed this is SUCH a precious photo.
