7 Ways Kim Kardashian's Nude Pregnancy Selfie Is Totally Body Positive
Kim Kardashian posted a racy selfie on Instagram? You've got to be kidding me. No way! Sarcasm aside, I love the Kardashians, and Kim Kardashian's nude selfies will never cease to empower me. Her latest pregnancy selfie isn't just a celebration of her gorgeous body, but a strong body-positive statement against those who have accused her of faking her pregnancy.
In true form, Kim K told off the haters in the most Kardashian way possible: with an Instanude. Her accompanying caption explains not just why she may sometimes look physically smaller or bigger (the time of day, whether she's eaten, etc.), but it also celebrates the differences she's seeing and experiencing within her body.
Throughout this pregnancy, Kardashian has noticeably been enjoying the processes and changes that her body is going through. There are many debates about whether being pregnant with a boy is different from being pregnant with a girl, but there's no real proof one way or the other. Personally, I believe that the differences Kardashian is noticing are down to her positive attitude towards her pregnant body and lifestyle. Either way, the reality star is becoming more and more body positive about pregnancy, and here are seven ways this latest selfie proves it.
1. "Some days I'm photographed before I eat & look smaller, some days I've just eaten & I look bigger."
Kardashian's honesty about her body is to be admired. She didn't just dispel rumors about a fake pregnancy with this photo, but she was also self-aware enough to explain why people might be jumping to this assumption. Of course, she shouldn't have to explain herself to anybody. In being so open about her body, though, she inspires positivity.
2. "Everyone's body is different, every pregnancy is very different!"
Accepting and celebrating that everybody's body is different — whether you're pregnant or not — is an extremely body positive statement.
3. "I've learned to love my body at every stage!"
Kim Kardashian openly preaches self love with this sentence, and it's exactly the kind of thing we need to hear more of.
4. "I'm going to get even bigger & that's beautiful too!"
Celebrating big as beautiful — even if it's related to pregnancy "big" — is still uncommon amongst most media stars. Hopefully seeing Kardashian owning her pregnancy weight gain will be a lesson for others.
5. "I'm grateful to God for this miracle"
Kim Kardashian openly hated being pregnant the first time around, so watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians and seeing her try on all the clothes for this second pregnancy (and the overall positivity she's treating it with) makes me so happy.
6. "No matter what rumors or comments you throw my way this time they truly don't affect me!"
My guess is that she's referring to her last pregnancy, which can only be described as a media frenzy of hatred against Kim Kardashian. It's great to see her openly refuse to be mocked, belittled, or bullied by the press and stand up for herself instead.
7. "#NoFilter #NoPhotoShop #GoodLighting"
What's an Instagram post without a hashtag? Kardashian clarifies here that there is no guise behind her body positivity.
This selfie means serious, body positive business.
