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?

What a cow!!!

AShley on

Its getting better i think.

destiny on

I think its a girl too because your hips get wider which means her ass will be there much bigger because of her hipbones.

The middle outfit is actually really cute and looks stylish and comfortable. She needs to keep choosing outfits like that and really avoid anything too tight or revealing. The maxi dress makes her look waaaaaay bigger than she is.

Yes it is much better than the leather…. to each their own…
and Kal2005 bet you are a sight to look at..LOL

sick of the bagging on kim on

ok – first – i am not a huge fan of kim’s at all. BUT – yes, she is improving, i give her props for that for sure. there is no reason to wear super tight clothes when you are pregnant. embrace your new shape and dress it appropriately, you will feel and look better. second, kim – she does NOT look “huge as a house” she is PREGNANT you moron! i wish all these judgmental fools would leave this woman alone…People mag included. by constantly bagging on how HUGE she is, you completely miss the point that she is carrying another human inside of her. lay off. this is the reason women like her have body issues and are self conscious with themselves.
