Kim Kardashian has opened up about her maternity style
The 34-year-old took to her new website to explain that she initially tried to copy sister Kourtney's outfits, but realised that they didn't necessarily work for her.

"Everyone used to say Kourtney had the best pregnancy style, so I would borrow a dress she wore when she was pregnant, and OMG it did not look the same!" she wrote. "The side-by-side comparisons were just not good for my soul, so I finally had to figure out my own style that worked for ME!"
While nowadays Kim is hailed as a style icon for her high fashion maternity looks, she faced a lot of criticism during her first round of pregnancy style.
The star often sticks to neutral shades
"I didn’t even know my signature style yet, let alone how to dress for a baby bump!" she explained. "My style kept changing and nothing was consistent.
"This time I know what I like – plus I am confident and not trying to hide my bump. I actually want to accentuate it."
The last few years have seen Kim rocking neutral shades and all-black ensembles – a stark contrast to her older colourful outfits, and the American beauty revealed that she doesn't regret her edgy makeover, which she often attributes to Kanye.

"I also look back at my last pregnancy looks and sometimes I am mortified," she admitted. "I actually am a few pounds heavier this pregnancy than my last, yet somehow I look so different.
"Maybe it’s because you carry a boy differently than a girl, maybe it’s because I don’t have the swelling that I had last time when I had preeclampsia, OR maybe it’s because I am confident in my style and know what to expect."
