Mom-to-be Kim Kardashian has been criticized by some for her pregnancy fashion choices. But does every pregnant woman have to wear maternity clothes? We say no — and Kim K. is proving our point with her pregnancy outfits.
Kim Kardashian might be due in July, but her changing body hasn’t changed enough to get her to stop wearing the form-fitting clothes she’s used to wearing. The Kourtney & Kim Take Miami star said she’s embracing her baby body, but it’s a learning process.
“I’ve found that I’ve gained inches and I’ve gotten wider but my belly hasn’t popped yet, so I struggle finding things that don’t make me look heavy,” Kardashian wrote on her blog March 1. “At this stage I guess I’m more focused on concealing the weight gain than I am about dressing the bump, just because it hasn’t popped yet.”
That’s not to say Kardashian isn’t embracing actual maternity gear. The 31-year-old reality star added that she’s wearing clothes from her Kardashian Kollection at Sears, along with some maternity pieces.
“My new J Brand maternity jeans are a blessing because they make me feel slim and comfortable, and I’m excited to try other looks!” she continued. “I heard Jet makes some amazing maternity jeans too. Once I start showing more I’ll be all about showing off my bump, and I can’t wait!”
We’ll be excited to see how she embraces her growing belly — will she adopt long, flowy dresses like those sister Kourtney wore during her two pregnancies? Or will she still be all about the form-fitting gear as she nears her July due date?
One thing we do know: Her child — reportedly a girl — will be mega fashionable, too.
“If anyone knows Kanye, they just know how into fashion he is, and I think he’s going to have things specially made,” she told Jimmy Kimmel in February.
“So I don’t think hand-me-downs are going to work.”
Do you like Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy style, or does she need to ditch the tight stuff for more comfortable gear?
