If there is anything you can trust Kim Kardashian West to do, it's have a body double. In a preview for this Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, her mother Kris Jenner and sister Kourtney Kardashian snicker about Kim's brand new innovative technique to try clothes on while she was pregnant: hire a body double. Kim hired someone alike in height and structure, made them wear a prosthetic belly and try on all her maternity wears to see if they looked good because she was just too tired to bother doing it herself. A pregnant lady has got to relax!

Her assistant Kim then attached pictures of the body double to the hangers carrying a certain outfit, so she knew what she would look like if she chose to wear it. There are also close ups of alternate shoes if she decides she wants to spice her outfit up a bit. Kim K is taking celebrity pregnancies to a whole new level.
