Kim Kardashian West is fighting back against criticism over her new line of maternity shapewear. She recently teased the upcoming SKIMS collection
Many accused her of trying to pressure women to hide the natural shapes of their bodies while pregnant.
To anyone who has an issue with maternity solutionwear, and if you haven’t been pregnant before you may not know the struggle of what it’s like carrying all of this weight the way I did along with millions of strong women, @skims maternity line is not to slim but to support.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) September 13, 2020
She continued, "The belly part doesn’t slim your belly, it’s actually sheer and a thinner layered material compared to the rest of the garment." It is designed to help prevent lower back pain from the additional weight carried by pregnant women.”
"The compression on the leggings helps with pain relief caused by swelling. It is also worn after you have given birth and provides the comfort and support that most women need after delivery especially if you are recovering from a cesarean."
