Kim Kardashian’s Maternity Style Attacked — Is This Taking It Too Far?

There’s no denying the fact that Kim has showed off a slew of questionable styles while adjusting to her pregnant figure, but it looks like she’s getting bashed worse than ever — and this is taking it too far! In fact, our experts actually say Kim’s latest look is a step in the right direction.

Kim Kardashian showed off three different looks in one day while in NYC on Mar. 26, promoting her role in Temptation, but it was her style choices that really had everyone talking. In fact, a belted, nude dress with a full skirt landed the pregnant reality star on the cover of the New York Post with the headline, “What The Frock?” While we have been very vocal about Kim’s questionable maternity style, we were so happy to finally see the 32-year-old mom-to-be embrace a looser silhouette. Personally, I think the bashing is really getting out of control!

Kim admitted that she struggled with figuring out how to handle all the changes brought on by her pregnancy — and it looks like that includes how to dress her baby bump! Clearly sticking to form-fitting, high-waisted silhouettes wasn’t in her best interest, which is why we were pleasantly surprised to see the star step out in a nude frock with a full skirt when she arrived for an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael — it looks like she’s finally getting the hang of her maternity style!

Kim Kardashian Maternity Clothes: Experts Weigh In:

Nina Garcia, creative director at Marie Claire, exclusively told HollywoodLife, “In the next couple of months, Kim’s body will be changing and the proportions of her silhouettes will have to be tweaked. My style advice for her is to keep it monochromatic, simple, and streamlined with fabrics that have stretch and can highlight her curves,” she said. “This season, she is lucky that Spring is all about long flowy dresses and flats—and both would make her look very cool, like a goddess. Designers like Donna Karan always have clothes that have a bit of stretch, which is majorly important. It is not about trying so hard. Keep it simple, keep it comfortable and stay confident!”

Celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch added, “Kim is really carrying in her hips as opposed to someone like Jessica Simpson who is mainly carrying in her stomach. Kim can show more cleavage or something tighter on top so she can still be sexy without accentuating her hips even more. A great option is a fuller skirt with a cardigan or pairing a tunic with flowy pants or leggings. For once she can not show off so much of her notorious ba-donk-a-donk and proudly show off her baby bump,” he said.

Wearing a looser silhouette and embracing a monochromatic look is exactly what Kim did on this occasion — and the empire waist is so much more flattering on the star! Sure, she should retire her collection of belts sooner rather than later, but from head-to-toe Kim kept it simple and looked confident in her ensemble — so what’s what with all the fuss?

Enough Is Enough!

Kim’s body is obviously growing as she gains weight and her figure changes — and all of this is totally normal for the mom-to-be! Kim has managed to fall under scrutiny even worse than Jessica Simpson did during her first pregnancy — and I think the criticism is out of control. Enough is enough!

Don’t get me wrong, Kim’s difficulty to leave her sexy style and affinity for form-fitting silhouettes behind is the cause for all of the backlash, but at the end of the day why are we constantly ripping a pregnant woman apart for her fashion choices? Let’s get real, we all roll our eyes when we hear celebs gush about how much they love their changing body and how quickly they bounced back after giving birth, but now that Kim is very publicly struggling with the changes, (like I’m sure many women do), we’re quick to slam her, one outfit at a time.

I don’t know about you, but I’m honestly SO sick of talking about Kim’s maternity style. Sure, I’m sick of seeing her in high-waisted silhouettes and belts, but I’m also sick of seeing everyone play fashion police and rip the pregnant star apart.

What do you think? Do you think Kim’s latest dress should be considered a major fashion offense or do you think everyone is taking it a little too far?

Isn’t it considered slutty anymore to pop out someone else’s baby before you’ve been divorced? Or am I just too “old school” here?

yes she is the delusional idiot strutting for the cameras-and she doesn’t even have a baby bump she is like the huge cow Mariah and is gaining blubber everywhere but her belly cause she eats like a pig and is to spoiled to tell herself NO-the baby will be tiny and she will gain 100lbs just like MeMe and Jessica Simpson-becuase they are all illiterate spoiled skkankks that have no other talent than playing off their looks when they were young and are too stupid to realize that they would get old and getting fat would be the end of their careers because their careers were shaking their arse and tits-and now being fat and/or old no one wants to see it-so they twitter constantly doctored photos of themselves and act like they still have careers-and whenever the pappo catch them looking like hideous cows on the street they freak and twitter how they shouldn’t be judged on their looks even though that is how they got any attention in the first place and they used it for all it was worth-act like a skannkky hore and get treated like one

She totally does it to herself. Like someone said, she puts these clothes on and struts around in public to be photographed. The thing I can’t understand is how she thinks she looks good in these clothes! She wouldn’t look good in half of the stuff she is wearing even if she wasn’t pregnant! I loved being pregnant so I could wear stretchy clothes and loose fitting stuff. She looks more fat than pregnant and if she had real stylists, someone would be telling her that. There’s a way to make your baby belly look cute, and then there is this. And what was that pic of her wearing Spanx while pregnant?! SERIOUSLY?

Her tight clothing is going to hurt the baby. What kind of mother is she going to be if she can’t even make the right decisions for her baby while it’s still in her stomach totally 100% reliant on her actions.

A riot! Not one ounce of sympathy for this woman who made millions from performing filthy sex acts on a sex taple; staging a fake wedding and now pregnant while still married to another man. She CRAVES the spotlight else she would stop walking the streets daily to have her pix taken.

So then, Hollywood Life is endorsing as a good look the latest orangeish-gold skin-tight leather mini dress that is so tight and short it exposes her (ahem) unmentionables when she attempts to walk! C’mon, man. She’s not doing any better at all. Trash is trash, sorry.

I agree with “abe is doing it.” This woman’s ego only exceeds her body shape. Why can’t she just look like other normally-developing pregnant women and give up the “Look at me, I’m a sexpot” look? She should check out some photos of the lovely English duchess Kate Middleton, who looks elegant, comfortable, regal, and happy with her pregnancy.

MAJOR fashion offense. If she keeps putting herself out there then she is opening herself up to criticism. Did you see the last episode of KKTM? SO into herself and her “image”, really? Get over yourself and while you are at KimK, tell your baby daddy to do the same!
