Kim Kardashian has finally responded to the backlash she has received over the SKIMS maternity shapewear line after Chrissy Teigen got involved.
Keep on reading to see what she said to defend her company...
Since the announcement of the end of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the world-famous family have been keeping themselves very busy...And Kim Kardashian has been actively promoting her bodywear range, SKIMS.
But in more recent times...
And when pregnant Chrissy Teigen posted a promotional video for the maternity range...The criticism got even worse... resulting in Kim finally addressing the anger herself.
Now, the Kardashian-Jenner family are no strangers to controversy.Although, with plenty of seasons of KUWTK under their belt and more money than most of us can imagine, these women are (mostly) thriving.
Whether it's a photoshop fail...
But Kim seems to be the one who ruffles the most feathers.The queen of them all, Kim Kardashian, is arguably the most famous Kardashian sister.
In recent years, Kim has ventured away from her reality TV beginnings.
She's a huge player in the fashion scene.
She's also training to be a lawyer...The star announced she was entering the legal realm early last year. She revealed the news in Vogue’s May 2019 issue, announcing that she is training to become a criminal justice lawyer, and is now being mentored by 2 lawyers, Jessica Jackson, and Erin Haney.
But despite the good that she has been trying to do, Kim frequently seems to get on the wrong side of fans.
The accusations came after this magazine cover was released:
Kim has also been frequently mom-shamed.
But her latest move may be her most controversial yet...
Kim took to Instagram over the weekend to promote the SKIMS maternity range.
Kim spoke excitably about the new range...would offer "comfort and support for your changing body during and after pregnancy" and would be available in various colors and sizes.
Chrissy Teigen, who is pregnant with her third child, took to Instagram to promote Kim's new venture.

Of course, it didn't take long for Jameela Jamil to address the issue.She pointed out that pregnant women should "be allowed to be pregnant and get bigger" without feeling embarrassed or self-conscious of their bodies.
"I wish we could just normalize just focusing on the inside of a pregnant body, not the outside," Jameela continued in an Instagram caption.
"You don't need your shape corrected or hidden. You just need to try and ride with this miracle and do your best to be as happy/comfortable as is possible within your circumstances."
