KIM Kardashian’s fans took notice at the model’s style lately sporting primarily bodysuits and gloves, theorizing that she may be covering up due to a psoriasis “flare up.”
The reality star has routinely been covering herself up in various Balenciaga bodysuits for months.
Fans of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star may have discovered why Kim has resorted to shielding her skin in the body-hugging suits.
A Reddit user posted their thoughts on her wardrobe on the platform relating it to the skin disease and her recent split from ex-husband Kanye West.
“Maybe someone has already said it, but I’m wondering if her psoriasis has been really flaring up this year due to stress- like the divorce. Which would make PERFECT SENSE as to why she’s only been wearing body suits for the past few months.
The user added: “I know she has great resources around her to fix it, but I’ve heard that big flare ups can be super tough to manage and even cause scarring. What do y’all think?”
The 41-year-old first started donning the bodysuits a few months back, as she made her Saturday Night Live hosting debut wearing a gorgeous pink outfit for her opening monologue and another pink gown for the Powerball sketch.
Since, she has been seen sporting mainly body-hugging suits covering her from her toes to her fingertips.

Kim recently confessed in the Wall Street Journal that she was done wearing the loud outfits she did in the past.
“I had a few moments. I had some fun. “But I’m back to minimalism,” she told the publication.
However, the SKIMS founder didn’t tone down her look much as she wore a bright purple skin-tight catsuit to celebrate her 41st birthday.
She also wore an all-black leather outfit on the Met Gala red carpet complete with a face mask by the luxury designer.
And during her family’s Christmas Eve celebrations, the mom-of-four posed in pics with her children while wearing another full-body ensemble.
Her daughters also matched their mom’s look with their own pink couture Balenciaga outfits channeling Kim’s SNL wardrobe.
While Kim has stunned in the bodysuits, fans questioned if the style change has to do with her psoriasis – which Kim has been open to suffering from.
Psoriasis is a condition in which skin cells “build up and form scales and itchy, dry patches.”
On top of it, Kim has also been dealing with her divorce from the 44-year-old rapper, who she split from in February 2021, that could be adding to her stress.
Although Kim has moved on with comedian Pete Davidson, the Donda rapper has made repeated attempts to win back his ex-wife.
In his most recent move, Kanye purchased a $4.5M mansion across the street from the $60M estate he and Kim once shared.
A source confirmed to PEOPLE that Kanye bought the house in the hopes of staying close to his children amid his split from Kim.
The source called the home, which was originally built in 1955, a “teardown,” saying: “Kanye’s new house is a teardown. He only bought it for the location. It’s near Kim and the kids. He has a vision for the house and plans on starting construction ASAP.
“It will be family-friends. He wants to be able to have the kids over as much as possible. Living only in Malibu was making visits more tricky for Kanye.”
Another insider close to the Chicago native said: “When he realize he could buy the house and be near his family he jumped at the idea. He wants to be close by for the kids.”
The former couple share four children: North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, three, and Pslam, two.
