Why Kim Kardashian Wears Super-Tight Clothes — Even While Pregnant

If Kim Kardashian‘s second-skin wardrobe (still continuing into her second trimester) has you raising your eyebrows, you’re not alone. But the reality star wants you to know that she’s not just wearing super-tight clothes to look sexy, but because looser clothes don’t flatter her hourglass shape.

“I think because I have big boobs it could make me look heavier if I don’t, like, show off my waist or something,” Kardashian says in the new issue of Du Jour magazine. “So I just have kind of learned to dress one way only.”

The mom-to-be has learned over time that she can’t try new things, stylewise, the way her sisters can. “Khloé can wear flowy, pretty things because she’s really tall. Kourtney is, like, really little,” she says. “I’m just kind of in between, so it doesn’t really work.”

The magazine cover marks Kardashian’s first pregnancy photoshoot, though her baby bump is obscured throughout most of the beachy, “Tahitian goddess” shots by Bruce Weber. Click here to read Kardashian’s full Du Jour story, in which she also dishes on her divorce, privacy and her family. Tell us: Do you think Kardashian’s sexy maternity style is appropriate?

Brandi on must be running out of stuff to write about…I read this article a few days ago in the style section. Kim I think is going to be one of those women that won’t embrace the changes that take place in her body during her pregnancy…all she will focus on is how her weight gain will make her look heavier on camera and how limited her fashion options will be. I understand that pregnancy isn’t the easiest journey but with her fertility issues that she faced before she got pregnant, she is very fortunate to have conceived and her child should come first and foremost.

Um really??? She just looks fat now. The more she tries to squeeze her body in clothes, the worse (and more fat) she looks. Personally, I would rather look pregnant than just fat.

Wow, just when I thought she couldnt surprise me, that girl is so full of herself and I dont think shes in any way shape or form prepared for a baby, she is way to self absorbed, and doesnt want the limelight ever be off of her!!

Zow on

This woman is nuts.She is endangering the life of her baby by wearing tight clothes.WHAT a CONTINUED IDIOT

When she can refrain from using the word “like” in at least ONE interview, I might believe she is mature enough to have a child. And for anyone thinking she will have a wake up call when the baby is born, think again. She will have a team of nannies raising that baby so she can continue racing around the world

wish she would just shut up already

I’m with Kassie. Kim K is beautiful, but that’s about it (and what she’s making her fame off of). It’s all exterior, superficial stuff she’s promoting. She has no substance. Pretty face, great figure but not much in the brains department, no talent whatsoever. As far as morals go, that’s non-existent.

Carly on

Beautiful face. Otherwise, she’s always looked like a fat, cheap hooker. And brainless? OMG.

Lynne on

This girl is in for a rude awaking! Having a baby will do a lot to her system and figure. She is a very self centered person, I wonder how she will age. It is sad when ego comes before the baby. Heels should go and all the traveling.
