Did You Know Pregnant People Can Wear Nice Clothes Too?

Kim Kardashian clothes
   Not too long ago in the history of mankind, knowledge was much harder to come by. These days, however, just the touch of a button or two and it’s possible to unlock the secrets of the universe with the minimum of fuss. This is why I thought I’d write a quick post explaining my confusion about the current trend on the internet towards slamming Kim Kardashian for putting on weight whilst pregnant.

   The article that really piqued my interest in writing this post was a ludicrous blog on the Daily Mail, penned no doubt by an expensively qualified journalist, which trashed how the pregnant Kardashian looked in a designer dress and featured advice on how the reality star should, in fact, look in the garment (helpfully illustrating this with pictures of “willowy” Zoe Saldana in the same item). I’m quite certain that if Kardashian had taken to wearing jogging pants and laying in bed all day, eating ice cream she would have been equally pilloried by the press for this choice too but that’s quite a different matter. Instead, I’ve become captivated by the bloggers, journalists and internet commenters alike who are speculating about how much weight Kardashian has put on and taken to attacking her hubris for daring to still attempt to wear designer clothes.

   The rest of this article is aimed specifically at any one of the people who may be amazed by these developments but I fear I’m going to have to tell you something quite monumental, something which could shatter your world. The thing about pregnant women is – they DO put on weight and the only way this could be in anyway an interesting development was if the status quo was bucked with Kardashian slim-lining the closer she got to giving birth. In case you were not aware, and you really should have Googled this first before making a fool of yourself, ladies' bodies change significantly during this period and the reason for this is simple.

“Woman With Human Growing Inside Of Her” should really not be a news story in this day and age.

   I know when I discuss fashion on this site it is usually in context to men’s sartorial choices but I thought it would be best to put down these thoughts – maybe if a Neanderthal who would otherwise be bamboozled by “the incredible growing woman” reads this first he may not make a fool of himself with a public declaration of idiocy. I can teach you about fashion and, maybe, about biology too. You're welcome.

  1. Really agree with you. I really don't understand why anyone would care about a pregnant woman's weight gain - she looks like a healthy pregant woman to me. Surely that's all that matters. I've not personally read any articles about her weight (I avoid the Daily Mail haha!), but I've seen a few about what she's been wearing. Of course, those comments happen to celebs every day, but it gets cheeky when people say 'you shouldn't wear this when you're pregnant' as that is judging her body and surely she can dress how she likes! I couldn't give a peanut as to whether she's wearing a bin bag or a catsuit in all honesty.

    1. I wish I could avoid the Daily Mail - I'm simultaneously repulsed by it and, anthropologically, fascinated by it too. It's a crazy paper.

  2. I think Kim looks great in that dress. I don't understand why people have to comment on what she's wearing, just because someone else looks different in it. You'd think by now that people would know that a pregnant woman will put on some weight, if she didn't they should be worrying, and she looks like a healthy pregnant woman. I think people will just choose to pick at anything they can, and the only thing they can fault Kim on is the clothes that she's choosing to wear during her pregnancy. I'm pretty sure she's not the first pregnant woman to want to dress in designer clothing x

    1. Aye - I think she looks great. Healthy, as you said, and my thoughts are - if she wants to wear a designer dress, good on her! If she wants to wear elasticated pants and a sweatshirt, good on her too! It's entirely up to her and the scores of articles I've read knocking her are crazy.

    2. People obviously have nothing better to do besides knock her clothing choices. I'm with you on that she should wear whatever she wants, at home she probably is wearing joggers and sweatshirts, but being in the public eye must make her feel as though she should be dressed up because she knows they'll be pictures of her in the magazines and online. I think as long as she's happy and comfortable in what she's wearing then it really shouldn't matter to anyone else x

  3. Yes! Pregnant people CAN wear nice clothes. Not all the time, but most of the time. Although, it gets a little boring and we aren't all made of money so casual pj days are also a must! I think Kim's figure is hard to work around anyway and some of the things she has been snapped in recently don't do her any justice but this photo is gorgeous and she's pulling off the pregnant look very well!

    1. Casual PJ days make a lot of sense - my thoughts on the subject is that Kim should be able to wear what she wants, no questions asked, without having to justify it to the tabloids over and over.

  4. People amaze me sometimes - a pregnant woman putting on weight!? Whatever next???
    I think she looks great actually, really healthy, and why shouldn't she wear nice clothes just because she's pregnant? Madness.

    Jesss xo
