Kim Kardashian's New SKIMS Maternity Line Puts Pregnant Bellies at the Center of Debate

Yesterday, Kim Kardashian announced on Instagram that her SKIMS shapewear would be expanding to include a maternity line. The collection, she wrote, "offers the best in comfort and support for your changing body during and after pregnancy." Nevertheless, debate ensued on social media. Chrissy Teigen, a longtime Kardashian friend who happens to be pregnant, posted Instagram stories of herself wearing the SKIMS and praising the line, but others -- namely actress and activist Jameela Jamil -- are criticizing the ideals that the shapewear promotes. What's the deal?
