Jessica Alba, mother of two, recently revealed her secret to her amazing post baby body, a double corset day and night for three months following the births of each of her children!
“It was brutal; it’s not for everyone,” the 31 year old actress and mother of Honor and Haven admited. “It was sweaty, but worth it.”
Recent pictures of Jessica sporting a bikini shows that her sweaty tactic payed off as she displayed her lean killer abs.
A product that would probably have been a lot more comfortable for Jessica and achieved the same results is the Belly Bandit, as worn by Kourtney Kardashian following her pregnancies.
This product is also available in non-designer solid colors:
The Belly Bandit is an excellent product for shrinking your midsection while also appearing more trim and toned while worn under your clothes. It is adjustable and can be tightened as you get smaller and continue to lose weight.
Please note this product is not to be worn during pregnancy or immediately following a Cesarean. Please consult your doctor before wearing after pregnancy.

Out and about for the holidays, new celebrity mamas have been showing off their cute bundles of joy this week! Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott showed off the first pictures of their precious new family addition, baby Hattie. Born October 10th, Hattie is adorable cuddled up in Tori’s arms. Joining big brother Liam and big sister Stella, as well as Dean’s son Jack from his previous marriage, we could not be happier for the beautiful family.
Also spotted out this week was Jessica Alba with her baby Haven, just four months old. Haven joined big sister Honor earlier this year, and the adorable family has only gotten cuter. Jessica and Haven were out purchasing a Christmas tree, and Haven was bundled up in a furry vest. Jessica wore a flowing knit sweater that would go perfectly with a great pair of skinny jeans and one’s favorite winter boots. So precious!
Alyssa Milano was another mom spotted with her baby this week. Alyssa posted a picture of herself and her adorable three month old son Milo in their garden. They look so cute all cuddled up together! When speaking to Best of Babes, Alyssa spoke of the importance of breastfeeding to her, stating, “I think the thing I like best about breastfeeding is the closeness I feel to Milo and knowing that he’s getting the best of me.” She also explained how it is hard for her to breastfeed in public, due to the paparazzi. “I wish I could breastfeed in public without feeling as though a picture would show up on TMZ,” she says. “… When we go out I bring a bottle of expressed milk because sadly, I’m just not comfortable feeding him in public.”
We love seeing all the adorable newborns! Congratulations to the growing families!
Congratulations to glowing parents Jessica Alba and Cash Warren on the arrival of the newest addition to their family, baby girl Haven Garner Warner! Born August 13th at 7 pounds and 19 inches long, Haven joins excited big sister Honor. We could not be happier for the growing family!
Throughout her pregnancy, Jessica always had impeccable maternity style. Whether on the red carpet or running errands around town, she managed to combine style with comfort. For an appearance on the Jay Leno Show, just three weeks before Haven was born, Jessica rocked a gorgeous white maxi dress. Women often shy away from white as they are afraid it will make them look bigger, but it is more about the cut than the color. Jessica had a thin, animal print belt directly underneath her bust which created a slimming empire waist. The flowy-ness of the fabric over her baby bump created a long and lean look. For a similar look, try 1 in the Oven’s Beach Maternity/Nursing Dress. This flowing white dress is the epitome of beach goddess, with its lightweight gauze fabric. The dainty buttons at the bust are feminine and practical for easy nursing access, while the empire waist gives the same great shape as Jessica’s dress.
On her July 24th baby shower, Jessica nixed the traditional summer dress and instead wore a stylish chiffon dress over black leggings. This sophisticated look, paired with gorgeous wedges, was an instant hit. Leggings are a great choice for those latter months in pregnancy, as they are incredibly comfortable. A flowing short dress or long blouse heightens that level of comfort, while an empire waist distinction creates a slimming shape. For a look similar to Jessica’s, which is perfect for one’s own baby shower or a nice lunch out with the girls, pair Japanese Weekend’s Maternity Leggings with their Maternity/Nursing Twist Dot Top. The dainty dots are feminine and provide a Parisian feel, while the black and white color palette is sophisticated and classy.
From the runway to her daily life, Jessica exemplified style and comfort throughout her pregnancy. We are so happy for the growing family! Congratulations!
Another baby is on the way for actress, Jessica Alba (29), and husband Cash Warren. They already have a beautiful daughter, Honor, who just turned 3 this past June. They know she will make a terrific big sister.
Alba made an appearance on “The Talk” on August 11 and talked about how she was going to try and be a little bit healthier this time around. “I told my husband that he couldn’t make 1/2 a pack of bacon any more. Also, no more 3-5 desserts every night. They were for both of us but really for him.”
Alba also stated to the gals on “The Talk” that after becoming a mom, she felt more sexy and confident. She has embraced her sexuality and come into her own.
Alba spoke on “The Talk” about how she delivering baby #2 using Hypnobirth. “Hypnobirth was what Lamaze use to be. It’s breathing techniques, visualization, and relaxation techniques. I am not against epidurals or medical intervention; I just want to try this and hopefully enjoy the birth.”
Alba can be seen in the new Spy Kids in 4D movie coming out soon. There will be an opportunity to use your sense of smell during the movie. It is a new sort of role for Alba and will be fun for her kids to watch their mom perform in when they are older.
Through Alba’s pregnancy, she has certainly kept her sense of style. She has been seen styling a variety of maternity fashion from black, fitted evening dresses, to printed tunics and leggings. She can even sport maternity sweatpants and t-shirts and still turn heads.
Recently photographed while shopping for maternity clothes, Alba looks fashionable in a white button down front tie blouse, jeans, long cardigan and boho hat. The white blouse is a great staple to have in your maternity wardrobe as it goes with everything and can be worn dressy or casual with jeans as Jessica shows in her ensemble. Find a similar look with Maternal America’s Twisted Front Tunic, and Megan Maternity Jeans.
