I wasn’t going to write a Kim K. post but after seeing a picture yesterday of her latest fashion choice, I had to add my two cents!

I’m slim (not skinny) and have never been pregnant. So I don’t know what it’s like to carry another human being and watch my body change in order to bring the gift of life into this world.  I know women, especially those in the  spotlight, are under a lot of pressure to always look their best. Celebrities are stalked by paparazzi 24-7!  And unfortunately, Kim Kardashian is one of those celebrities that have been in the spotlight non-stop for her maternity fashion choices.

It was to be expected that every paparazzi known to man would try to get pictures of Kim while pregnant. After all, she’s a celebrity (for reasons I still don’t understand). Prior to Kanye West, her fashion choices were always on point. Since dating Kanye, she’s had a few more fashion misses than we were used to seeing, but there’s no denying that she and her sisters have a great sense of style.  They embrace their curves and dress to flatter them.  A true example that beauty and being sexy is not defined by being a size 0.

So while we see other celebrity moms-to-be out and about looking cute and fashionable with their latest baby bump accessory, I, like so many others, expected Kim K. to do the same. I just knew she was going to bring it! Now I am not here to bash her; after all I believe in women supporting women. But I also believe that women call each other out when things are wrong. And Kim, some of these maternity fashion choices have been wrong!

Instead of embracing her baby bump, it looks like she wants to hide it.  It looks like she’s trying to dress for the body she used to have (see pictures above). The clothes are extremely tight (as they have been for a while before becoming pregnant) and she looks downright uncomfortable at times. Maybe it’s the maternity Spanx. I don’t know. What I do know is that trying to squeeze into the latest designer frocks that were not made for a woman 6 months pregnant is not flattering at all. I won’t go as far as saying she’s fat, because she’s not.  She’s pregnant. Embracing a new body is a challenge!

Some women don’t like the idea of wearing maternity clothes. There’s nothing wrong with that. I have a friend who was pregnant last year and I don’t ever remember her wearing maternity clothes. The key is to wear things that show off the baby bump, flatter the new body while staying true to one’s individual style. Kim’s all black look at the movie premiere of Temptation: PERFECTION! The maxi dress paired with a cream blazer and flats: FLAWLESS! Those are the type of looks that really make her look like she’s enjoying her pregnancy and flatter her figure.

Message to Kim: you are approaching your final trimester.  You can still be fashionable! Embrace the fact that you’re pregnant and relax! Throw on a maxi dress and bad ass biker jacket; opt for a dress with an empire waist to show off the belly. You can get back to squeezing into pencil skirts after your baby is born.
