Kim Kardashian is 'Proud To Rock Mom Jeans'

What better time than Mother’s Day weekend for Kim Kardashian to confront the haters who blasted the curve-enhancing denim pants she wore last week, dismissing them as “mom jeans”? The reality star posted a retort to the unkind online chatter on her official website last Friday, blogging, “For some reason, high-waisted jeans are always branded with this negative term and I think it’s kind of ridiculous,” she wrote, referring to the sailor-inspired pair that she had sported. The newly single 29-year-old, who’s no stranger to unfriendly comments from the peanut gallery, went on to defend the stylish mothers of the world, like her sister Kourtney, saying,  “I don’t think these are mom jeans at all. And even if they are, who’s to say any mom wouldn’t look fabulous in them!? Any woman who is proud of her curves should be able to flaunt them in high-waisted jeans!!! So you know what… I’m proud to rock the mom jeans!” We bet Jessica Simpson seconds that emotion. Tell us: What do you think of Kim’s so-called “mom jeans”? Would you wear them? –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

Everyone should have to wear these. I hate seeing the rolls low cut jeans show- comeone now 60 of Americans are overweight.

DEATH TO ALL MUFFIN TOPS!! Just because low rise jeans are in style does not mean that everyone should wear them.

Do we call them mom jeans because her butt crack isn’t showing and rolls of fat aren’t hanging over the top?? I wish I looked that good in any jeans..lol

I think she looks absolutely fantabulous with ANYTHING on! She makes everything work for her!

Like mom, like daughter… Did she get her jeans from the same store as her mom, just like she got her face from the same plastic surgeon as her mom?

Mom jeans have pleats at the waist! Kim always looks HOT! Done right these are so cute!

I think that anyone who has a long waist like Kim can pull off wearing the high-waisted jeans. Me, on the other hand, being short-waisted, it would make other areas look bigger. I’m a plus size, but maybe I’ll give them a try when I get my lap-band surgery done and lose my weight. It MAY look good even on shortwaisted women. Thanks Kim for being proud of your figure. You have nothing to be ashamed for and never have. These people who put you down are just jealous and not comfortable in their own skin, that’s all.

High waisted jeans do not hold in your stomach. They sit above the waist line & then if you have belly flab then it just looks like a bulge around the middle. Low rise jeans do not cause the muffin top look, wearing jeans that are too small does that.
