In case you missed it, Kim Kardashian West revealed that she’s expecting a second baby during a teaser for the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Now, everyone’s taking bets that the Wests will soon welcome a little South (insert trombone sound effect here) and reflecting on her best maternity looks.
But, let’s be honest. Kim Kardashian’s maternity style was not so good. Many of her outfit choices were simply unflattering, and the fact that she tried to wear regular clothing instead of maternity clothes should be a lesson to all expecting mommies.
Here are 3 things we can take away from Kim’s maternity style mistakes:
1. Maternity clothes exist for a reason so wear it. Buying a size or three bigger in regular clothes is not a good idea. During pregnancy, you typically appear larger in the tummy area so wearing a size 10 when you’re only a size 4 with a huge belly, will make you look awkward.
2. All maternity styles are not created equal. One of the hottest maternity trend is to show off the baby bump in body con dresses. Well, this look is not for everyone. If you’re a petite woman with an hour glass figure like Kim Kardashian, body hugging dresses will only make you look shorter and wider. If you’re shorter with more hips and booty, opt for babydoll dresses or flowing gowns.
3. Don’t ever ever ever pull a pair of pants or skirt above your baby bump. All maternity skirts and pants have a Secret Fit Belly. This allows your belly to fit comfortably and gives a better look even though you no longer have a waistline. If you’re still tempted to try this, just scroll back up to Kim’s maternity fails.
Either way, this is not meant to bash Mrs. West. Just a few pointers on what not to do and of course, a wardrobe wishlist of some looks I would love to see on Kim as her bump grows. Hooray for mommyhood!
