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.

Every time I read Kim K’s articles this happens in my head: blah blah blah blah blah,I’ve tried to like her n say positive things about her I think she’s gorgeous absolutely beautiful_but this girl has no clue about life in general,she always sounds like…uneducated…like a 12 year old. am I a “hater” maybe, oh well

She is far too concerned about her image right now. She is pregnant, it’s time to grow up and start dressing fashionably but comftorably for the baby and herself as well. Personally I think she is ashamed of being pregnant because it means changing weight and she won’t get anymore attention for her skintight clothes and body parts coming out everywhere. Like I said time to GROW UP.

Skin tight clothes do not flatter her either.

When will she learn that the “over-stuffed sausage” look isn’t a good look either – especially when the “sausage” breaks out and flows out and over!

Bang on, Kassie! Gorgeous but dumb as a rock.

Wait… So she thinks the outfits she’s been wearing actually flatter her figure?! I agree that when you are curvier wearing shapeless clothes doesn’t do anything for you, but what’s her excuse for wearing clothes 2 sizes too small?

Mary on

She shouldn’t wear tight clothing when she is not pregnant.

I have a 38g chest and I will say you don’t wear things that have the shape of a burlap sack but you can wear a belt, if you want a waistline…. Still doesn’t explain why she wears 3 pairs of Spanx under her clothes.

So,she has to wear tight clothes because otherwise her pregnant body would look too “pregnant”. Bottom line (don’t laugh) it is her “EGO” that dictates what she wears. Not sure that publishing this is going to make her look any less self absorbed than she has been depicted. Sorry, but the tight clothes are unattractive.
