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?

I’m sure she has consulted with her doctor about her choice of clothing. She does have a image to uphold because she is always under the eyes of the public. I will also state that she couldn’t be “dumb as a rock” with the empire she has helped to build and run. She has more money and has done more business adventures in her 30 years that some people couldn’t do in a lifetime. Also I will say that what you see on tv is a cut and edit of her sometime life not everyday. So KUDOS to KiKi for being SMART, SEXY, PREGNANT & FASHIONABLE!!!

Does it really matter what she’s wearing? She’s wearing clothes. Those clothes do what they are supposed to do- they cover her up! She’s not out walking around in belly shirts and shorts that her ass cheeks hang out of (right now, anyways). It is absolutely ridiculous how in a country that is at war, in a country where young girls have eating disorders and teen pregnancy is everywhere we look, in a country dealing with a recession, we are talking about what an unremarkable pregnant woman is wearing.

“I’m just kind of in between”

Honey, you are short, and if you are short so is kourtney and your chubby face bf.
stop dressing like you’re skinny, b1tch thinks she is a size 2, which you have been doing for a long LOOONG time. thats laughable.

The tight fitting clothes only make you look fatter than you are. I could never understand why people do that, it only accentuates your problems. Maybe it she wore her correct size instead of try on smaller sizes she would look good. and slimmer.

First off, she could barely get away with most of her tight clothes before she was pregnant, and now she just looks uncomfortable in these tight clothes. There are many cute clothes out there now days- get some cute leggins, with riding boots, and wear a flowy tunic- my goodness Kate Middleton looks so cute pregnant- please Kim try to take notes from Kate!

You can look beautiful and still wear maternity clothes. She is so self-absorbed it’s sickening. Hey Kim-Let the baby breathe
