Kim K. Busts Out In A Maxi Dress

Kim Kardashian is switching up her maternity style.

After fielding criticism for her curve-hugging fashions and sky-high heels, the expectant E! star stepped out in a flowing, floor-grazing maxi dress and flat sandals on Wednesday.

While grabbing some frozen yogurt in Sherman Oaks, Calif., with a few pals, Kardashian, 32, gave her growing baby bump a bit of breathing room in a loose-fitting, cream-colored frock. But while the look left her belly under wraps, it drew all attention to the mom-to-be’s ample cleavage.

As she snacked on a cupful of fruit-covered swirly sweets, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star — who is expecting her first child with beau Kanye West — chatted with BFF Jonathan Cheban.

Kardashian’s maternity style shift comes on the heels of her defending herself again what has seemed like a constant cycle of headline-hitting judgements on her pregnancy.

“I think it’s a little bullyish to call a pregnant woman fat. I mean, what do you expect? I hope I gain weight,” she said last week on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. “But I think it’s kind of mean, all the comments I see. Whether it’s, ‘She’s wearing heels,’ [but] that makes me feel good and sexy. And if I feel good, my baby will feel good. You can’t win, you just can’t win.”

While some tabloid covers have claimed she’s now tipping the scale at over 200 lbs., the pregnant star say that estimate is far exaggerated.

“I think after that In-N-Out last night and my New York trip, I think it’s 25 pounds,” she admitted. “I’ve always been curvy. I’ve always embraced my curves, and I love them. And now there’s just more to love right now.”
