Kim Kardashian Defends Her New Skims Maternity Line to Naysayers

Kim Kardashian is defending her upcoming maternity collection from SKIMS, after hearing some social media users complain about it.

The 39-year-old reality star issued a series of tweets defending the collection and restating the purpose of it.

“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,” she started out.

Kim continued, clarifying the purpose of the collection, saying that “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 provides support to help with the uncomfortable weight being carried in your stomach which affects your lower back -and 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.”

Kim also opened up about why the new maternity collection is important to her.

“We launched this category in response to the tens of thousands of pregnant women who wrote us requesting it and because it was something I personally needed when I was pregnant myself,” she wrote. “Based on the majority of positive feedback we have received so far from pregnant women around the world, I am incredibly proud to provide a solution that will provide comfort and support during the times that we all need it most, during pregnancy and after.”

Just recently, Kim filed a trademark to expand her brand. See what she’s planning to do here…
