Kim Kardashian West Responds to Backlash About Skims Maternity Line and Chrissy Teigen Has Her Back

You don't need an even more awkward obstacle between you and a piss.

This shouldn't come as a surprise for anyone that has been paying attention to these two for the past several years, but it looks like Jameela Jamil once again has something to say about Kim Kardashian and her business decisions.

"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", she went on, later referencing her own hard pregnancies with daughter North, 7, and son Saint, 4.

"Just wanting to show you and maybe talk a little bit about what pregnancy shapewear is".

"Trust me, we are not idiots, we don't think we are giving you some magical hot body now, ok?"

"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", Kardashian wrote on Sunday in action to the reaction.

She also took to Twitter writing, "It would be so cool if pregnant people could just be allowed to be pregnant and get bigger and not be self conscious, and enjoy the miracle taking place inside their body and not have to worry about feeling embarrassed/shamed that their body is changing for an incredible reason". Those against the collection are criticizing pregnancy shapewear because they want to normalize the pregnant body and all its insane curves, stretch marks, and growths.

The mother-of-four said she personally needed shapewear when she was pregnant and chose to launch the line in response to requests from pregnant women. Also, as most people who have been pregnant probably know, the worst swelling happens in your hands and feet so I'm not sure how the shorts or the bodysuit styles help that. "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".

While the pieces amongst Kardashian's Skims line are generally designer to compress the body, the reality star explained that the design was made to provide comfort and support. "I actually decided that I think it's even kind of condescending to think that you have to defend us on this".

Jameela shared an article on Instagram which had the headline "Kim Kardashian responded to backlash over her maternity shapewear line after Jameela Jamil and Chrissy Teigen got involved".

Kim Kardashian is a marketing wizard - and if you doubt that fact you just haven't been paying attention.

Jamil grew annoyed and "bored" of being dragged into the manufactured drama.

Jamil then took her argument to Twitter to blast tabloids: "The garbage way that tabloids try to set women upon each other to create a fantasy bitch fight for entertainment is so disgusting and archaic".

I'll add the backlash against this collection to the growing list of ways society tries to ignore what pregnancy is really like! "Being pressed to a slimmer figure,"' another comment read. She later advised followers to stop giving tabloids "the clicks" and "kill" the appetite for that sort of damaging content.
