What works for one pregnancy, doesn’t always work for another! Kim Kardashian tried to copy sister Kourtney Kardashian’s maternity style in 2012 and 2013 and admits it was a huge mistake.
“Everyone used to say Kourtney had the best pregnancy style, so I would borrow a dress she wore when she was pregnant, and OMG it did not look the same!” Kardashian, 34, wrote on her newly launched website, KimKardashianWest.com. “I also look back at my last pregnancy looks and sometimes I am mortified.”
The mom to North West, 2, who is expecting a baby boy, found it hard to be constantly pitted against her older sister, 36. “The side-by-side comparisons were just not good for my soul, so I finally had to figure out my own style that worked for ME!” she continued.
The challenge for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was really to find her own unique clothing routine. “I didn’t even know my signature style yet, let alone how to dress for a baby bump!” she explained in her post. “My style kept changing and nothing was consistent.”
But it’s clear from her second pregnancy that the Selfish author loves her new, signature maternity outfits of a long coat with a tight dress. “This time around, I know what I like — plus, I am confident and not trying to hide my bump. I actually want to accentuate it,” she wrote.
And she’s definitely not apologizing for sticking with the same pregnancy uniform. “And yes, long coats to cover my fat arms and ass!” the star said. “It’s such a trip how your body grows and changes, and at the end of the day, you have to wear what you are comfortable in and what you feel good in. I don’t care what the weather is, I will always wear my coats. I am always freezing, so it works out perfectly for me!”
The wife of Kanye West also admits that she has already gained more weight now than she did with North. “I actually am a few pounds heavier this pregnancy than my last, yet somehow I look so different. Maybe it’s because you carry a boy differently than a girl, maybe it’s because I don’t have the swelling that I had last time when I had preeclampsia, OR maybe it’s because I am confident in my style and know what to expect,” she said.
