Blake Lively Reflects On Post-Baby Body Insecurity

“It doesn’t send a great message to women when their bodies don’t fit into what brands have to offer.”

Blake Lively has been going for the throwbacks on her Instagram.

The star reflected on a year ago, when she had recently given birth to her third baby and was doing press for her movie The Rhythm Section.

As part of the throwbacks, Blake reflected on her post-baby body insecurity, and the difficulties she found looking for clothes.

“I put together a Lavin shirt and dress from Netaporter to make this pretty outfit,” she began, addressing her look on Fallon in Jan. 2020. “Because no one had samples that fit me after giving birth. And so many clothes from stores didn’t fit either. So. Many.”

“It doesn’t send a great message to women when their bodies don’t fit into what brands have to offer. It’s alienating and confusing. And I wish I felt as confident then as I do now, a year later looking back. That body gave me a baby. And was producing that baby’s entire food supply.”

“What a beautiful miracle,” she continued. “But instead of feeling proud, I felt insecure. Simply because I didn’t fit into clothes. How silly is that in retrospect?”
