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.

I don’t think she ever looks appropriately dressed. Less isn’t more.

What for a woman still married to her husband and carrying someone else’s baby? Noooooooo just right!

It’s unhealthy for the baby. She should be worried about her baby and pregnancy not how she looks. How self centered !!

Oh Please! The “tight” clothes made you look tubby before you were pregnant. Pregnant, they make you look TWICE as big! You love the attention, just admit it!

I’m an hourglass figure and I didn’t look that much of a hot mess during pregnancy.

YOU don’t have natural fake boobs, you have fake boobs….

Cracks me up that she is ‘proud’ of her pregnancy and claims she’s wearing tight fitting clothing, yet if you click on the link, she hides her tummy in every one of the pictures with barely a hint of her stomach. Proud? I’d be flaunting my belly but she is hiding it. Maybe the pregnancy is fake so she can rush her divorce!
