Kim Kardashian's Maternity Style: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

It seemed like Kim Kardashian was really getting the hang of this maternity style thing. After a few outfits that looked more than a little uncomfortable (and had us offering the unsolicited suggestion that she may want to loosen up) she finally did just that.

Lately, Kardashian’s been embracing the comfy, stretchy leggings and cute flats she’d promised to look into, and was pairing them with relaxed, flattering tops and jackets (including the Pea in the Pod maternity leggings and white top she wore with a printed jacket in Paris). Both looks were comfortable and cute, while still unmistakably “Kim.”

Then Wednesday she decided to try out a maxidress. We love the silhouette on a mom-to-be — just look how adorable Jenna Dewan-Tatum looks in hers! — and we give Kardashian props for trading her squeaky, stiff leather for a softer style. But though we understand her desire to remain sexy throughout her pregnancy, a dress that strains the limits of what its sleeves will support may negate that “breezier” look she was aiming for.

Still, we’ll give her points for effort and comfort.

Tell us: Do you think Kardashian’s maternity style is improving?

She looks like a woman that wasn’t feelin’ good with pregnancy, but WE ALL know about that ….

Please stop comparing Kim to Kate Middleton!! You are comparing crass to class. Is she carrying one baby in her butt and one in her stomach? She is just plain FAT!

Snowbird on

the middle one is the only chic outfit there – the other two should have been left at Salvation Army

ds on

your kidding? she needs to get a proper bra and maybe a slip.

moldja on

She looks excellent and I adore all three Kardashian’s.

nikol on

She belongs in a zoo with other hippos!!!!!!!!!!!

So much better, the only problem is with the maxi, it is either ability in bra or she isn’t wearing a bra, and when your chest gets large like that (I know, cause mine is) you have got to strap those babies up!!!

Stacia on

This is the best she’s looked during her pregnancy!! Nice to see she isn’t smashing the baby with those tight-*ss clothes

The reason Kim looks huge is because she has no idea how to dress her changing body and she has no sense of proportion. Just goes to show, money can’t buy taste…or a sense of style.

Nikol (and all the others making rude comments about her weight), grow up! First of all, she’s pregnant. Second, it’s pretty convenient to insult someone’s body when you don’t know them and you’re hiding behind a computer screen. I really hope that you don’t have kids yourself. Your type of ignorance, immaturity and hatred should never be passed on to another generation of innocent children. I’m with the girl that posted about being sick of the bagging on Kim K. It’s ridiculous…especially when it comes to her weight. She’s pregnant! What type of person spews negative, snide comments about a pregnant woman? Karma ladies..Remember that when you’re pregnant.
