If Kim Kardashian‘s second-skin wardrobe (still continuing into her second trimester) has you raising your eyebrows, you’re not alone. But the reality star wants you to know that she’s not just wearing super-tight clothes to look sexy, but because looser clothes don’t flatter her hourglass shape.
“I think because I have big boobs it could make me look heavier if I don’t, like, show off my waist or something,” Kardashian says in the new issue of Du Jour magazine. “So I just have kind of learned to dress one way only.”
The mom-to-be has learned over time that she can’t try new things, stylewise, the way her sisters can. “Khloé can wear flowy, pretty things because she’s really tall. Kourtney is, like, really little,” she says. “I’m just kind of in between, so it doesn’t really work.”
The magazine cover marks Kardashian’s first pregnancy photoshoot, though her baby bump is obscured throughout most of the beachy, “Tahitian goddess” shots by Bruce Weber.
