Jameela Jamil Slams Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS Maternity Line

Kim Kardashian, 39, is responding to backlash about her upcoming SKIMS maternity wear collection.

Kim Kardashian made a tweet defending her new maternity solutionwear reassuring women that it is not to make the pregnant body appear slimmer, instead, it is for comfort. 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. "I'm not Jesus. I will fight you".

Jamil often lambasts or reframes the negative narratives that articles perpetuate.

On Monday, she described on Dear Media's "The Papaya Podcast" that she's not "saying that we should cancel the Kardashians", however rather attempting to hold them responsible for their marketing.

If she had just been honest and said her line was shapewear and supportwear, then she would at least be owning it and it might not have been such an eye-roll moment.

Chrissy Teigen defended Kim Kadarshian as she wore SKIMS maternity line.

The British actress was an easy target, though.

But Kim took to media to clap back at critics and argued the new range is about the special support women need during pregnancy and post-partum.

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 unbelievable reason".

"Shape wear for pregnant bodies?" And each to their own. But from the discourse online I will say: I wish we could just Normalize just focusing on the inside of a pregnant body, not the outside.

"When you're pregnant and you're sitting down a lot, or on bed rest like me, you tend to just sit there, and if you're wearing regular, basic a** underwear, all it does is roll inside of folds, I didn't even know I had".

Sharing a string of videos of herself in the flesh-coloured underwear, she said: "We are not trying to do anything to trick you, we are pregnant, we would just like to feel good about ourselves in a time where mentally it can be really challenging". Jameela Jamil threw some shade at the idea on 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 awesome reason".

She added: "I don't think I have some magic waistline now, I'm not doing it to get a waistline". "On the controversy that is pregnancy shapewear: it's not to be smaller", she wrote. You don't need an even more awkward obstacle between you and a piss. On Twitter she also further clarified that mission statement by revealing, "We launched this category in response to the tens of thousands of pregnant women who wrote us requesting it and because it was something I personally needed when I was pregnant myself". "You don't need your shape corrected or hidden".

If Kim truly wanted this maternitywear to be about function, she would have created a new label for it.
