eBay Has Kim Kardashian’s Maternity Wear

Only a week post-delivery, Kim Kardashian is already ready to say goodbye to her pregnancy bod and with it her maternity wardrobe — and the eBay fanboys (and girls) are gobbling it up.

As International Business Times reported, the reality TV star announced via her Twitter account that the auction was live on Friday (Dec. 11), saying: “I’ve been saving up so many pieces from my closet for my eBay auctions! It’s all live now!” Hundreds of items, including high-end designer labels, unused workout gear, body-hugging dresses and even a few custom-designed pieces that Kim commissioned during her pregnancy, are included in the items up for sale.

A portion of the proceeds from the auction — as with all auctions on Kardashian’s eBay account per the page description — will go to The Vous, a religious organization based in Miami, Florida, that hosts weekly and biweekly gatherings for young people. Exactly how much of the proceeds will go to charity is unclear, but based on Kardashian’s track record on the platform, it will likely not be a small sum.

Australian-based lifestyle and parenting website Mamamia reports that while some items, like a grey Celine overcoat with real fur collar (with over 68 bids and a current asking price of $5,300), may be slightly above some budgets, other items, like a pair of red Hanna Andersson lounge pants (with 17 bids and a current asking price of $32) are decidedly affordable.

This is not Kardashian’s first foray into reselling her designer duds. The reality TV star and executive producer of the upcoming season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” has done a swift business on the site for many years. According to several fashion magazines, Kardashian reportedly sold an estimated 1,200 items on the site in 2013, grossing somewhere around $191,000, and in 2014, did even better, with over $200,000 in clothing sales on the auction site.
