Kim Kardashian has reportedly been wearing clothes too small for her rather than admitting she's put on weight during pregnancy.
The reality TV star is preparing to give birth to her first child with Kanye West in July. The new arrival is thought to be a little girl and while Kim can’t wait to be a mom, she is less happy about the effect the pregnancy is having on her body.
The star has eschewed maternity wear so far and has not shown much hint of a baby bump. Her weight has changed though, which she is said to be struggling with, choosing to squeeze into her old wardrobe rather than admitting she's bigger.
“Kim hates the fact that she’s so big already and that her figure has bloomed so early on in pregnancy,” a source told Heat magazine. “She’s still squeezing herself into outfits that are two sizes too small. She wasn’t expecting to have put on weight at this stage, especially as other stars have kept their tiny figures right up to when they give birth. She’s telling friends she feels eight months pregnant instead of five.”
The star’s smooth stomach has surprised many, especially when she appeared in a white Grecian dress at Sir Elton John’s recent Academy Awards viewing party. Apparently other guests at the bash were surprised to see she had a little help with keeping her curves in check, thanks to a pair of Spanx.
She was spotted wearing stomach-smoothing underwear and apparently can’t help comparing herself to her sister Kourtney, who is a mom of two.
“It shows her determination when it comes to looking slim,” the source added.
“Kourtney is a different shape to Kim and she didn’t put on that much weight during the first six months of her pregnancies, which hasn’t been the case for Kim. It’s hard for Kim.”
The 32-year-old brunette recently admitted she dresses more for Kanye than herself.
"I dress for my man way more than for myself!" Kim joked to Us Weekly. "[He prefers it when I wear] nothing! No, he likes cool, drape-y things. Very casual. [I'd call my style] sleek, sophisticated and very monochromatic."
