Kim Kardashian Wears A Sheer Jumpsuit At 5 Months Pregnant In A Reassuringly Body Positive Move
As someone who has spent her life navigating the public eye, the fact that Kim Kardashian wore a sheer jumpsuit to the L.A. County Museum of Art's unveiling of Kanye West and Steve McQueen’s recent collaboration may not seem like a particularly notable event on the surface. Throughout both her time on Keeping Up With The Kardashians and her day-to-day life, Kardashian has championed a signature style of bodycon dresses and skirts, plunging necklines, and gravity defying high heels. Her style has always focused on highlighting her curves, which is why it's refreshing to see her sticking to her sartorial roots throughout her pregnancy.
It's been alleged that for her second pregnancy, Kardashian has enlisted the help of seemingly doting husband Kanye West in choosing her maternity wardrobe. Whether or not the sheer jumpsuit in question was a West choice, it feels like a reassuringly body positive one, styled to reveal Kardashian's growing belly and paired with a long black duster trench coat.
Although Kardashian has been very open about her pregnancy weight gain in the face of vicious rumors that she was "faking her pregnancy," there have also been concerns that Kardashian would succumb to media and social pressures to stay thin and toned while expecting. By wearing an outfit that so proudly flaunts her stomach instead of attempting to strategically conceal it, Kardashian sends the message to women throughout the world that pregnancy is a miraculous thing, and that the natural bodily changes that accompany it shouldn't be something we shy away from, but something a mother-to-be should feel able to exhibit with delight.
After all, confidently showcasing the organic bodily signs that you've got a real life human being growing inside your body shouldn't be seen as anything but body positive.
