Like a "whale." When Kim Kardashian was documenting her pregnancy back in 2015, The Daily Mail quoted her saying she felt super-uncomfortable. As the bump reaches the eight-month mark, "feeling like a whale" is something any pregnant woman will likely find herself saying.
The couch, old sweats, and a tub of Ben & Jerry's are how most pregnant women spend those final months. When Caitlynn Lowell was about to pop with her third, she posted a pic of an ice cream tub (although it was Haagen-Dazs).
Kardashian pregnancy style basically merits its own style file section in Vogue. With Kendall Jenner as the only sister who isn't a mom, the past decade has thrown the world KarJenner pregnancies from every other girl. Kim Kardashian has three kids. Kourtney has the same. Khloe and Kylie are both mothers (and Kris Jenner has five kids).
In 2018, Khloe was being papped left, right, and center as she took her growing bump around Calabasas. Kylie Jenner chose to conceal her pregnancy entirely, although she did apologize for "keeping fans in the dark." What Kylie wore while she was expecting Stormi is mostly unknown, although a few snaps and those baby shower photos definitely showed everyone a unique style.
It's the KarJenners, for crying out loud. They're going to be extra with their outfits. While some are looks that any mommy-to-be can rock, others are so extra, they're 100% reserved for the world's most famous family.
It's time for a closer look. Here are 15 Kardashian pregnancy looks that any mom can rock (plus 5 that only this family can pull off).
20 SOMEHOW, NOT FOR THE WALMART RUN
Talk about a statement outfit. In 2018, Khloe became a mother to True. By 2019, The Standard was reporting that Khloe was blaming Jordyn Woods for "directly breaking up" her family (although Khloe has since redacted this). This shot came before all the drama, though. Thigh-high boots, a sweeping jacket, a glam ponytail, and a fully color-coordinated look of khakis is what we got (and it definitely turned heads).
Definitely not a look for the Walmart parking lot. Despite her giant bump, Khloe braved a flight to Japan in 2018, where Kim and Kourtney joined her for a Yeezy campaign. Kim's "clown" comments to her sisters were documented on KUWTK, but we're just way too distracted by this look.
19 FOR ALL WE KNOW, ACTUALLY TAKEN AT WALMART
Super-casual might be Kim's current look with Yeezy, but let's not forget that this woman rocked up to the Versace Mansion in Miami over 2018. Kim wore vintage Versace (and the glam was all there). Pregnancy looks have been mixed with Kim, although getting pregnant in itself had its challenges.
"It was a long road. I would go to the doctor in Beverly Hills every day at five in the morning to get tested to see if I was ovulating."
As Bustle reports, Kim has battled with fertility. Baby #4 is due in May 2019 via a surrogate, but for this pregnancy, it was Kim alone. We loved this look from Kim (and it could totally have been at Walmart).
18 SINCE KYLIE WAS ACTUALLY PREGNANT HERE, WELL PLAYED
Sneaky, sneaky. Kylie's 2017 pregnancy was, as Kim said on KUWTK, one of the best celeb secrets ever pulled off. As Travis Scott opened up to Rolling Stone in December 2018 and revealed that Stormi was on the way within "weeks" of dating, we now realize how serious these two are.
Kylie was expecting Stormi "within weeks" of dating Travis Scott. Kim called it "the best-kept secret of our generation."
Kylie was already in her first trimester when she was papped here. As far as pregnancy wardrobes go, this one is totally do-able. In fact, it works whether you're expecting or not.
17 PERFECT FOR A CHALLENGING BABY DADDY, RIGHT?
Scott Disick has proven quite a handful for Kourtney Kardashian. In 2014, Us Magazine reported that Kourtney had "banned" Scott from her Hamptons house, as Scott's wild behavior was causing this mom concern. Way more stable than he used to be, Scott now co-parents Mason, Penelope, and Reign with Kourtney.
Kourtney's pregnancy look here hands-down falls into the "any mom can rock it" category. With signature blacks, a statement hat, and those kicky booties, we're seeing a sassy woman who owns her bump (even if the baby daddy is a handful). Also, we did chuckle at how awkward Scott looked here. Well, just a little.
16 AND ALL THE TIMES HE'S "JUST NOT AROUND"
We've got to give it to Scott Disick. Former years may have seen this Kardashian dad pretty absent, but Scott has stepped up to the plate. Back when Kourtney was expecting Reign, though, Scott wasn't yet with Sofia Richie. He was 100% in the party zone.
Super-casual, comfy, and stylish all at once, this third-trimester look from Kourtney reminded us why we love this girl. She's relaxed. She's easy-going. Kourtney already had two kids to handle here, so her style reflected a mom on-the-go. It's one you can easily recreate with a summer dress from Target (although you might need it tweaked to maternity size!)
15 CAME WITH A GLAM SQUAD, BUT TOTALLY DO-ABLE
Kim Kardashian will forever be glam goals. Arguably the founder of "new-age glam," Kim rolls with stylists, hairstylists, and makeup artists who charge between $3,000 and $5,000 a day. Their rates are easily searchable. Kim was expecting Saint here. Of course, it was glam.
Add up Joyce Bonelli, Scotty Cunha, and Monica Rose, and you get a daily fee of $11,500 – just for a glam squad.
While the impeccable dress and heels here are smart, they aren't so "Kardashian" that a regular mommy-to-be can't re-create them. All you need is a touch of makeup, a bodysuit-style dress, and a loose-fitting jacket.
14 BECAUSE WE ALL SHOP FOR $115,000 BABY REGISTRIES (LESS DO-ABLE)
Khloe Kardashian's baby registry came to a staggering $115,000, Harper's Bazaar reports. With True now coming in Gucci shirts, this baby joins Stormi and Chicago as 2019's KarJenner "designer babies." Stormi seems to wear a lot of Burberry. She also got her very first Chanel purse from DJ Khaled for her birthday.
Khloe was actually out baby shopping with Kris here while they filmed KUWTK. The look is definitely one we want, but is it one we can re-create? From a Yeezy viewpoint, there'd be a cost factor. Also, those heels don't look too comfortable. Khloe looked beyond beautiful here, and we only wish this were a look we could pull off.
13 WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO HAVE KIM BE "THE BACKGROUND"
Ha! Take that, Kim! Just kidding. While Kim has definitely been the "spotlight" sister for quite some years, her siblings are catching up with her. Kylie's $900 million net worth made Forbes' cover in 2018. Meanwhile, the media outlet reports that Kim's worth is a much-lower $350 million.
Kourtney was the focus here as her pregnancy look took the form of a family outing. We can see Scott and Kanye, but Kim kind of fades into the background. With a simple black dress, stylish shades, and a pop of color from her bag, Kourtney is 100% showing us how pregnancy looks are done.
12 A THOUSAND TIMES YES
Pregnant women will always have that glow. It doesn't matter if they're pushing carts around Walmart in the middle of Ohio or glamming it up Kardashian-style in Calabasas. While Kourtney's 2019 looks have been super-racy, we haven't forgotten the chilled, super-relaxed looks from her pregnancies.
A cotton-stretch dress. Practical. Flat gladiator sandals. Way more practical than Khloe's lace-up heels. Kourtney had way too much on her plate to be teetering around in stilettos during her later pregnancies. With Mason growing up fast, Kourt needed something realistic. We fell in love with this look the minute we saw it: 100% yes.
11 'SUP, MORTICIA ADDAMS?
While Khloe and Kylie have both expressed that pregnancy was amazing for them, Kim's views haven't always come with rose-tinted glasses. Fitting her all-black "Morticia Addams" look is this quote, as Bustle reports:
"The pregnancy, I wouldn't really wish that upon anyone. Anyone. It's all worth it in the end, so I would definitely [go] through that, but pregnancy was not a good experience for me. At all."
Ouch. Kim said this on The Ellen Show after North was born. That said, Kim's pregnancies have come with a medical risk that caused danger (and the need for a surrogate). This look was super-classy, but let's face it, it isn't one for the normies.
10 PERFECT FOR FOOLING US THAT IT WAS A BOY
Khloe is definitely the funny one. The girl who spent her pregnancy pranking her own mother on KUWTK is hilarious, and she isn't above throwing us a curveball. Khloe had announced that she was expecting a girl before the birth. That all-pink baby shower was more than proof, and she even got people to write down name suggestions while they were there.
All in blue though, this outfit could easily have screamed: "It's a boy!" We're loving it, though. It's got pops of color. It's comfy with those sneakers. Above all though, it's stylish. Long dresses can work amazingly at any stage in the pregnancy, although the addition of a little leopard print definitely gave this a #Kardashian.
9 BASICALLY WHAT YOU WANT TO WEAR THE ENTIRE TIME
Kylie's baby shower pics only really became apparent after Stormi was born. While The Daily Mail seemed to have helicopter footage of the shower, everything was still a rumor at this point. Kylie kept the privacy up, although she did share all the stunning pics after.
Satin pajamas. It's what every girl wants to wear the entire time. Come to think of it, it's half the reason we even shop at Victoria's Secret. Posing with friends, Kylie looked happy and healthy here. Of course, the Jordyn Woods pics from that event may be less-welcome now. We 100% dig this look (and it's totally one you can pull off).
8 STUFF YOU OWN ANYWAY (BUT BIGGER) + THOSE VICTORIA'S SECRET GOWNS
It's become a bit of a signature look from the Kardashians. Skin-tight, peachy, tan, or white bodysuits, and something snazzy to jazz them up. Khloe's 2018 pregnancy was no different. Standing around her kitchen for KUWTK, this momma needed something comfy but stylish. The solution is one you can easily re-create.
Things you need: A white, stretchy top that'll cost next-to-nothing. An oversized robe (that you could easily already own). Where does it start to get tricky? Find a mom in Michigan or Arizona who has a glam squad on-tap. Hair and nails here might not be the most practical, but the outfit itself totally was.
7 STUFF YOU WISH YOU OWNED
We'd give our left arm to be able to afford a wardrobe like this (pregnant or not). Upping the ante during a rare moment here while she was expecting, Kourtney looked beyond-gorgeous. Heels, a dress with bounce, and that purse were perfect. Turns out though, Kourt's cravings were pretty normal.
"I want more junk food. Last time I wanted fruit and frozen yogurt. This time I'm craving those things too, but I'm also craving cheeseburgers."
Speaking to Parents, Kourtney revealed that her pregnancy cravings were as normie as they come. She wanted burgers alongside that healthy frozen yogurt. We'll take the food, but the wardrobe is Kardashian territory!
6 FIRST TRIMESTER GOALS
The first trimester is tricky. It's the riskiest time in terms of knowing if the pregnancy will itself be a success, and many moms choose to keep the news to themselves at this stage. When it comes to what to wear, the first weeks aren't a problem. It's that in-between stage where there isn't yet a bump (but your overall shape is changing) that can be a challenge.
Time to learn from Kim. Keeping up the style with edgy ripped jeans and a biker jacket here, Kim nevertheless managed to stay comfortable with a loose tee. It's that belly area that can cause the most insecurity, although there's really no need.
5 SECOND TRIMESTER GOALS
Khloe wasn't entirely about comfort over style during her 2018 pregnancy (remember that first pic you saw – the thigh-high boots?). Still, as her pregnancy progressed, Khloe went from rocking ultra-glam looks to giving into her biggest need: Comfort.
With sneakers and an easy dress, Khloe's second-trimester style gave us looks like these. The signature furs were still there, but the overall style was relaxed. While "Body, I Miss You" was a social media post that Glamour raised an eyebrow at during Khloe's pregnancy, her attitude was in the right place, overall. Given this look, so was her wardrobe. #TotalYes
4 THIRD TRIMESTER: #MICDROP
Ladies, this is how it's done. Yes, Kourtney Kardashian officially gets a #MicDrop for this third-trimester look. It isn't overdone. It isn't impossibly complicated. Instead, we're seeing an all-black wardrobe that stays interesting thanks to metallic poppers, a cross-body bag, and that shining smile we love so much.
"Mason is excited, and yes, he knows about her. He came with us to a doctor appointment and he also loves to touch my belly."
This adorable quote came as Kourtney spoke to Parents about expecting. The magazine wasn't interviewing Kourt on her wardrobe, although given this look, we think the entire article should've been on how to re-create it.
3 WORKABLE, UNTIL YOUR EYE REACHES HER FEET
Yeah, those shoes. Kim's pregnancy style definitely changed between expecting North and her second pregnancy with Saint. The very "glam" look found itself replaced with Kanye's pared-down Yeezy style, although Kim herself has credited Kanye. Throwing out her "cheesy" wardrobe is something The Daily Mail reports Kim feeling positive about Kanye doing.
This look was 100% Yeezy. It's tan. It's tight. While it is stylish, it's right about the time you slide your eyes to Kim's feet that the "ouch" appears. Feet can swell during pregnancy. Whack on the California heat, and you've got one uncomfortable outfit. Kim looked blossoming here, but we won't class this as a look that regular women can rock.
2 WORKABLE, FROM HEAD TO TOE
And that's our Khloe. Always a champ. Despite being heavily pregnant, Khloe continued her KUWTK appearances (and that included the sporting events). When it came to Khloe's sporty wardrobe during her pregnancy, abandoning style completely just wasn't going to happen. Giving us a look we can easily re-create, though? High-five, Khloe.
Sweats are now "in." The athleisurewear trend that we see from Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, and Kim Kardashian was already alive and well here. Black and white chopped up any monotony with this look, while the shades added the statement finish. Dior shades? Nobody's saying you need to drop $400 on shades. Just pick up a pair at CVS.
1 IF ONLY WE'D KNOWN
We may never know where this pic was taken. Kylie's final pregnancy months were kept under wraps in the biggest secret ever, although fans did get this pic after Stormi arrived. Kylie took to IG in February 2019 with a heartfelt statement, as Cosmo covered.
"There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal."
In a way, the adorable, comfortable, and happy-centric wardrobe here reflects that. Kylie took time away from the public eye to focus on having the healthiest, stress-free pregnancy she could. This look was simple. No Gucci. No Prada. Just a stretch dress, some sunshine, and a happy mommy-to-be.
Not all these looks will work. The ones that do? They're absolutely worth bookmarking.
