Last time around, every time Kim stepped out someone was writing something rude about the outfit she was in. The one above, it's kind of warranted—the derision around her 2013 Met Gala dress was more so because it looked like a couch.
But aside from that, the criticism leveled against Kim became so harsh that it seemed personal. Blogs and commenters ripped her for wearing tight clothes instead of trying to hide her changing body, and basically broadcast the message that because she was pregnant, she wasn't allowed to dress how she wanted. It got so bad that after giving birth Kim admitted that the comments took a toll on her. "It made me feel insecure, so I have tried to avoid the limelight more," she told Vogue UK.
Kim is arguably even more famous than she was in 2013, so if you think the general public isn't going to microscopically judge her and her pregnancy on a 24/7 basis, you don't understand how the world works. The New York Post is always gonna be the New York Post:
