With many believing her rapper husband, Kanye West, was low-key her bodyguard for the night, Kim aced the “wet” look as she styled in an extremely fitted beaded dress.

Talk about cinched waistline! If you thought the dress looked hard to breathe in, you were right. 

According to Kim, she actually had to “practice” breathing in order to wear her skin-tight silicone Thierry Mugler corset dress. Not to mention, the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star's dress was so tight, she couldn’t even sit during the Met dinner. 

In a behind-the-scenes video for Vogue, the 38-year-old reality star showed exactly how difficult it was for her to sit in her custom corset and thigh-length Spanx by Mr. Pearl.

“OK, so Anna, if I don't sit down for dinner, now you know why. I'll be walking around mingling, talking, but I can hardly sit. I can only like, half sit,” Kim said.

In fact, the dress was so tight Kim actually had to hold onto a pole as she stood in the back of a van before making her pink carpet entrance. 

Love it or leave it, she surely showed dedication to the “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme of the night.

We don't know about you, but we think Kim has definitely come a long way from being insecure as Kanye’s Met Gala plus one back in 2013.
