Kim Kardashian recently launched a maternity collection with her shapewear business, SKIMS. However, many people on social media lashed out on her. They accused her of promoting a slim figure even during pregnancy. Kim responded by saying that her new launch is about supporting the baby belly and not having a slim figure.
Following this, Chrissy Teigen also shared a video of herself wearing SKIMS’s maternity launch. Teigen is currently pregnant with the 3rd baby. Her pregnancy month is not known yet, but from the looks of it, we can see that she is probably in her second trimester.
In a series of tweets, Teigen said that shapewear during pregnancy helps support the baby bump and the vagina’s folding.
Chrissy Teigen shares her support for the Skims Maternity Shapewear after the collection got backlash over the weekend. She said that when a pregnant person is resting, the usual underwear tends to get stuck in the folds, and it feels weird. However, with maternity shapewear, none of this happens.
Teigen further defended that the idea behind SKIMS or any maternity shapewear is not about making a pregnant woman look thin. She even revealed what she looks for in underwear during pregnancy. She said she only wants to wear underwear that is comfortable, soft, and can stretch over her growing baby bump. And also the one that wouldn’t fold in her body rolls.
The 34-year-old mommy concluded by saying that the hate SKIMS receiving is probably from people who have never been pregnant. Anyone who is carrying a baby inside only wants to feel good about themselves both mentally and physically.
