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.
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.
Ok, so we know Kim Kardashian has been getting a lot of flack for her maternity fashion choices. However, I must say, I am secretly becoming a bit of a fan. I am actually motivated to see what she wore to the latest event whether it be a striking off the runway black Prada dress to an intimate dinner date with Anna Wintour or her Riccardo Tisci designed floral print gown which she wore to the Givenchy Met Ball the following night (with built-in matching gloves).
Really, we do need some comic relief from Kate Middleton’s never misses and perfect pregnancy body perfection (although I am a huge fan of the Duchess and admire her picture perfect pregnancy and fashion choices). I am, however, more intrigued by Kardashian’s maternity fashion “hit” or supposed “misses” because, really, isn’t that what fashion is all about- not conforming, making a statement, showing your mood and style in the body you are currently living in?
I credit Kim Kardashian for making maternity fashion a lot more interesting, expressive, unexpected, sometimes humorous and controversial. I agree that pregnancy should be a time to embrace the bump however demurely or flamboyantly as we please. It’s a time to celebrate our bodies and the body forming in us. It is not a time to be ashamed of a few added pounds in places other than the bump, which for most of us is perfectly natural (unless you are the Duchess of Cambridge!)
With that said, I do have to laugh along with Robin William’s “who wore it best” taunt at Kim’s dress choice to the Met Gala and more of less accusation of her channeling his character as Mrs. Doubtfire in his 1990’s film. Kardashian’s dress is strangely reminiscent of that once upon a time comedy fashion display with the same busy head to toe floral pattern. However, without a doubt, Kim did wear it best, complete with the built-in flowered print gloves!
Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day Maternity Dress or Baby Shower Dress? Look no further than Maternal America’s Cut Out Yolk Maternity Dress, AKA “The Stork Dress.” This go-anywhere versatile and lightweight Spring-Summer Maternity Dress is a must-have for your warm weather maternity clothes wardrobe.
Although not immediately apparent, the navy red and white print is actually small storks that converge for a beautiful patterned look. The empire waist design is slimming and flattering on all expecting body types. The V-neck sleeveless style is cool for summer and can even be worn as a nursing dress with the elastic cross-over front design.
If ever there was a good-luck dress to be worn during pregnancy, this maternity dress from Maternal America is the one!
Kate Middleton recently topped Vanity Fair’s Best-Dressed Pregnant Ladies list, which was not a big surprise considering her flawless and varied pregnancy fashion. This new list is part of Vanity Fair’s International Best-Dressed Challenge. Vanity Fair explains their choice of Middleton:
“At every life stage—courtship, marriage, and now pregnancy—her classic, insta-iconic pieces have inspired and influenced the wardrobes of sweethearts, brides, and mothers-to-be, respectively. The duchess conceals her (bare minimum of a) bump with three-quarter-length coats and short skirts that also help to draw attention to enviably still-svelte stems.”
Some pretty fancy wordage which we interpret as meaning she dresses well and looks good!
Although we loved Kate’s parade of stylish cross over buttoned coats and patterned tights, we look forward to her spring dress selections as her bump grows. I’m sure she will continue to deserve her top ranking for International Best Dressed Pregnant Ladies!
Halle Berry does not seem like an expecting mom of “advanced maternal age” at 46 as she is looking positively glowing with her growing baby bump. She has been recently promoting her film in Brazil in a number of figure-hugging outfits which show off her growing bump. She and fiancé Olivier Martinez will welcome a child, rumored to be a boy, later this year.
Halle looked gorgeous at the South American premiere of her film in a black cut-out maternity gown with spider web lace accented on the sides. Her film, a thriller with Brad Anderson and Abigail Breslin recently hit theatres.
“I feel fantastic. This has been the biggest surprise of my life to tell you the truth,” Halle told CNN a few weeks ago.
“I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful.”
Berry’s next project will be the much anticipated sequel of X-Men: Days of Future Past.
We look forward to seeing more of Halle’s gorgeous maternity style!
