Kim Kardashian West Wears Two Pairs of Spanx Sometimes, Admits Flats Are a 'Struggle' for Her

The star opens up about shapewear and wearing flats during her second pregnancy

Kim Kardashian West has the most famous skin-baring, spandex-loving, curve-enhancing wardrobe on the planet. And the 34-year-old star, who recently announced she’s expecting her second child with husband Kanye West, just got very real about her love of shapewear (yes, even pregnancy Spanx!).

“Sometimes I wear two pairs [of Spanx] under something or stockings — it holds you in,” the star told Elle magazine, adding that while she was undergoing fertility treatments to help her conceive, all the hormones were making her weight fluctuate. “I was trying everything so I was getting bigger and bigger and I was like ‘No, I’m not pregnant yet, I need to be skinny.’ So, I was definitely insecure.”

She also revealed that her high-fashion wardrobe (which includes a lot of latex) isn’t always comfortable — in fact, at times it’s very constricting.

“Sometimes I’ll wear something and I’ll get inside and be like ‘Oh my God, I want to take these shoes off,’ like ‘That was not normal, I can’t wear these, I need to just leave and take them off,'” she shared. “So it might look good in the picture, but I get them and then like, I’ve got to be normal and like unbutton my pants when I get in the car.” (We have to say, we really love how honest “Pregnant Keeks” is.)

When it comes to her maternity style, Kim is known to eschew billowy mom-to-be clothing. But this time around she might give her heels a rest and introduce more flats into her wardrobe.

“I happen to hate the way I look in flats. It’s really hard for me so I’m already thinking, like, ‘What the f— am I going to do?’ And when I was pregnant, it was the hardest thing,” she said. “But I know it’s better and easier, you know, so it’s a struggle.”
