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’s not fat because she’s pregnant, she’s fat because she’s always been fat but she knew how to dress the fat to make it look decent. Now that the fat is in different places, she doesn’t know what to do with it and she just looks fat.


Poor Kim-her style was not good pre Kanye and its not been good post Kanye–she thinks people were concerned that her tight skirts were hurting the baby—no they looked really, really, bad. She does not dress well and never has. But people need to lay off the body comments–she is short and that baby has no place to go. She can’t control that. BUT she needs to figure out how to dress without looking cheap –pregnant or not.

She looks cute. Definitely a more practical look for a pregnant woman.

She is beautiful whatever she wears Being pregnant; the looser is much more comfortable. I hope she takes the attitude; she’s doesn’t give a krap of the negativity people put out there. She is not a skinny gal. I think some meat on your bones makes one much more sexier anyway. I bet 95% of the negative comments only WISH they looked like Kim!!!! She is adorable. Congratulations to her and Kanye!!!!
