The struggle is real for pregnant Kim Kardashian! The reality star, who revealed she was pregnant this past Sunday on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, aired some of her pregnancy grievances in a new interview this week.
“Earlier today, I was wearing these pregnancy Spanx,” Kardashian, 34, told Elle on June 2. “And they were newer, so they weren’t really the color tone of what I used to wear, and so you totally saw through, and I was just like ‘F— it, I’m more comfortable in that and it’s just going to be one of those days’—I wasn’t feeling good.”
Like many women, Kardashian uses the control-lining undergarment to help tuck and perfect her physique. In fact, Kanye West’s wife occasionally doubles up!
“Sometimes I wear two pairs [of Spanx] under something or stockings,” she dished. “It holds you in. And when you go on all these hormones and stuff, before I felt like [like] I was trying everything, so I was getting bigger and bigger and I was like ‘No, I’m not pregnant yet, I need to be skinny.’ So, I was definitely insecure.”
She is, after all, her biggest critic. “Sometimes I’ll wear something and I’ll get inside and be like ‘Oh my God, I want to take these shoes off,'” she mused. “‘That was not normal, I can’t wear these, I need to just leave and take them off.’ So it might look good in the picture, but I get them and then like, I’ve got to be normal and like unbutton my pants when I get in the car.”
Kardashian made these comments while wearing a form-flattering latex dress that showed off every inch of her curvacious figure. Despite her pursuit for comfort, the 5’3” star said she loves heels. “I happen to hate the way I look in flats,” she complained. “It’s really hard for me so I’m already thinking, like, ‘What the f— am I going to do?’ And when I was pregnant, it was the hardest thing. But I know it’s better and easier, you know, so it’s a struggle.”
Kardashian spoke to Us Weekly this past week about how her second pregnancy will differ from her first. “This time around I have a nutritionist to keep me healthy while I’m pregnant,” she told Us and other reporters. “The last pregnancy, I ate a donut every single day, I’m not doing that this time. But I’ve also been taking it easy and enjoying myself.”
