Kim Kardashian’s Maternity Fashion: Looks We Loved (and Some We’d Love to Forget!)
I have been rooting for Kim Kardashian’s maternity fashion for a long, long time. You might not have realized it (because you think I’m heartless when it comes to Kim Kardashian, her body, her pregnancy, her life in general, basically) — but I’ve been patiently waiting for the mama-to-be to really blow us away with her maternity frocks and it looks like finally — finally — she’s done it!
The past few times I’ve seen photos snapped of the star (who’s due in July!), she’s been dressed head-to-toe in looks that, dare I say it, other pregnant women would actually want to copy: Empire-waisted dresses, flowy sheaths, sandals that don’t look like they cut off your blood supply. Kiki is starting to embrace her bump-style and it’s about time! Personally, I’m pleased for a number of reasons: She has a body that a lot of women can relate to. She’s got curves and likes to show them off — and I think she’s done a huge service to women in the past for her fashion-forward and direct looks. She’s proud of her shape and doesn’t hide behind hit. Her pregnancy looks, though, haven’t always been as glamorous.
But alas! Kim’s time has come, y’all! And since the star has definitely set aside the time out to get her fashion sense on the right track, we thought it’d be fun to take a gander at Kim’s road to success. There were lots of bumps in the road (like that couch-inspired Met Gala dress?), but lately, with all of Kim’s maternity wins, I think she’d be proud to see her progress.
Love It!Kiki looks fab in this figure-flattering empire-waist frock. Pairing it with a chic blazer adds a touch of her signature glam.
Love It!Finally! A dress the mama-to-be actually looks comfortable wearing.
Let's Forget About ItIt's clear that Kim is swelling a lot in her feet, which is totally normal. Those clunky sandals don't look like they're helping much.
Love It!Guys!! She's literally glowing!
Let's Forget About ItI get that floral is everything these days -- and I'm totally on board. However, this much floral everything is a wee bit too much.
Love It!Say hello to airport chic! Leggings, a denim button town and a maternity tank -- score one for Kim's on-point maternity style.
Love It!Even though the price-tag on this maternity maxi hit close to $8,000, it's still a hit for Kim.
Love It!I actually love the neckline and arm bedazzling. Visually, it's figure-flattering and Kim looks comfy.
Let's Forget About ItRecognize this dress? Kourtney wore it during her pregnancy with baby Penelope and it looks like Kiki raided her big sister's closet for maternity garb. The fit looks a little to snug for us, though.
Love It!One of the first times Kim stepped after really "popping", this tunic-y lace top with a satin empire-waist flattered her figure and fit appropriately.
Let's Forget About ItTwo issues here: The fur (not for me) and the tight leather skirt. I just get the feeling that Kim isn't comfortable at all.
Let's Forget About ItI don't mind the dress from this angle, but from every other side, it makes Kim's frame look bigger than it actually is. A maternity miss, for sure.
Love It!Even though this is black, braided and sheer all over -- I actually love it. The top (even though it's totally see-through) fits Kim's body perfectly and the blazer helps keep the look refined and fashionable. Even though she tried to throw me for a Kardashian-kurve ball with this look, I still love it!
Let's Forget About ItIt actually hurts me to look at this picture -- so I can't imagine how much it hurts her to walk in these.
Let's Forget About ItI like that Kim got adventurous with her fits, but I don't know if the lace detailing is just in the wrong spot or this top is just too tiny for the mama-to-be. I'm all for showing off your growing bump but a little more coverage, please.
Love It! (I think)For one of her first maternity looks, I am kind of torn on this one. The detailing on the chest make her look bigger than she really is, but the length of the tunic is actually flattering for a first trimester mama.
Let's Forget About ItWhat is this? A onesie? I can't imagine any pregnant woman not wanting to curse the day this outfit was created every time she had to use the restroom!
Lets Forget About ItJust say noooooo to designer footwear for the next nine months! Please! I am begging you.
Let's Forget About ItKimmy caught a lot of flack for these peplum (snakeskin printed?) pants. It made her look big in all the wrong places. And the crop-top turtleneck -- what even is that?
Let's Forget About ItWhile the fish-net look may have been in season and in style somewhere, it certainly wasn't here.
