Why Kim Kardashian Wears Super-Tight Clothes — Even While Pregnant

If Kim Kardashian‘s second-skin wardrobe (still continuing into her second trimester) has you raising your eyebrows, you’re not alone. But the reality star wants you to know that she’s not just wearing super-tight clothes to look sexy, but because looser clothes don’t flatter her hourglass shape.

“I think because I have big boobs it could make me look heavier if I don’t, like, show off my waist or something,” Kardashian says in the new issue of Du Jour magazine. “So I just have kind of learned to dress one way only.”

The mom-to-be has learned over time that she can’t try new things, stylewise, the way her sisters can. “Khloé can wear flowy, pretty things because she’s really tall. Kourtney is, like, really little,” she says. “I’m just kind of in between, so it doesn’t really work.”

The magazine cover marks Kardashian’s first pregnancy photoshoot, though her baby bump is obscured throughout most of the beachy, “Tahitian goddess” shots by Bruce Weber.

Is her belly going to be bigger than her big butt…..that’s the real question.

Gag. Just….gag.

Menotyou – Wishing a miscarriage or crib death for Kim’s baby is just WRONG on so many levels.

Will she ever shut up? Is there any light at the end of the tunnel?

I can’t believe nobody in the family has told her how horrible she dresses. I mean seriously, yes, take a mirror and look at the back side too. And remove the tits if you want to appear smaller…too much is just too much! Pick boobs appropriate to your size! Otherwise, you look ridiculous.

I don’t personally think the clothes she’s wearing right now during her pregnancy look very good, but who am I to tell someone else what to wear? I’m sure that the world will continue to turn no matter what Kim Kardashian wears. I don’t think she cares what I think either, which is just as it ought to be.

so what i basically just got from that it, she doesn’t want to look fatter than she sis while shes pregnant, so shes going wear tight clothes and have a hard time breathing instead. Yes because that makes all the sense in the world kim, you idiot. Is that even good for the baby??? Or she just thinking about herself again.

She has to wear such tight things to try and keep that LARGE A$$ of hers in check!

Wow, you people need to get a life. She can say want she wants about her body, clothes and baby. None of you support her. Bottom line. It is her taste and what she likes.
