Latex, Mesh and Body-Con: The Kim Kardashian West Maternity Wear Checklist
1. RISQUé LACE-UP TOPS
In one of her most-talked about pregnancy appearances, Kim stepped out at the MTV VMAs in a silky green dress with a lace-up top that juuuust covered her curves.
2. BODYSUITS …
As the wife of the designer, Kim turned up at Kanye's Yeezy Season 2 New York Fashion Week presentation in one of her husband's creations, fittingly a bodysuit (one of her faves).
3. BODYSUITS …
4. … AND MORE BODYSUITS
If your airplane wardrobe involves worn-in leggings and an old T-shirt, then be prepared to be upstaged by Kim. During a trip through LAX, she re-wore the aforementioned bodysuit, this time with a pair of silky black pants, heels and a long olive trench.
Kim in a one-piece? Never. On vacation with the whole krew in St. Barths, the second-time mom-to-be selfied up a storm in a barely there string bikini.
6. BODY-CON ANYTHING
Kim may also be known as the queen (kween?) of body-con ensembles, and she lived up to that title at little sister Kylie's 18th birthday bash in a sheer black dress that hugged every curve.
7. AND ALSO SHEER ANYTHING
A sheer black jumpsuit? All the better through which to see Kim's growing baby bump, which she showed off at an event in Los Angeles.
Pregnancy is no reason for Kim to stray from her signature Spandex – and why would it be? Here at four months, she was clearly still rocking the stretchy fabric.
9. LACY LOOKS
Kim can master the completely covered-up but still nearly naked look better than anyone (yes, that is a thing). In Cannes, she did just that in a long-sleeved lace dress that, while running from neck-to-toe, kept only the essentials covered via a peekaboo high-waisted black bra-and-underwear set underneath.
One thing you can always count on to appear in Kim's maternity wardrobe? Cleavage. (Oh, did we say that already?) While in Paris to meet with Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing – perhaps, to brainstorm more cleavage-baring outfits to wear later in her pregnancy – she donned a sheer black dress with a deep V-neck.
11. CASUAL WEAR
Even in her sweats, Kim manages to show lots of skin. For a day out in her hometown of Calabasas, California, she wore (what appeared to be) a skin-tight sweatshirt onesie. Comfy? Ask Kim.
12. MESH TOPS, DRESSES & MORE
For Kim, the key to maternity wear is stretchy fabrics. Proof? The mesh, bra-baring top she wore around Beverly Hills – perfect for a growing belly.
