Why Not Try Some Flats? Heavily Pregnant Jessica Simpson Steps Out In Platform Heels

We feel hot and bothered just looking at this photo of heavily pregnant Jessica Simpson.

It's bad enough being weeks away from birth, with all that extra weight to carry, without encasing your ready-to-pop body in a hot orange maxi dress and shoes combining the double torture of platform and heel.

The 31-year-old singer was spotted teetering out of Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills after shopping with her assistant.

Jessica, who is pregnant with her first child with fiance NFL player Eric Johnson, has joked to US Weekly: "I'm probably going to deliver my baby in these [4-inch YSL heels]."

We really wouldn't recommend it.

But then Victoria Beckham managed a whole pregnancy in heels.
