Lively had also slammed the fashion industry for contributing to women’s insecurities
Gossip Girl star Blake Lively had recently opened up about feeling insecure about her post-baby figure. The mom of three recently took to Instagram and said some hard-hitting facts about her postpartum figure. She shared about her difficulties in fitting into her clothes after giving birth to her third daughter Betty last October.
How the fashion industry contributed to making women insecure
While on the topic, Lively also got candid about how the fashion industry has contributed to women’s insecurities about their bodies. She said that no one had dresses her size after she gave birth, and clothes from other stores didn’t fit her either. She said that it doesn’t send a great message to women when their bodies won’t fit into the sizes available for these brands and it’s alienating and confusing.
Blake also said that she wished she could be more grateful about her post-baby body as it was responsible for the miracle of life. She said that her body had given her a baby, and was producing that baby’s entire food supply and was a beautiful miracle. But looking back, she says she feels silly for feeling insecure instead of proud simply because she didn’t fit into clothes.
Following Blake Lively’s confessions, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, who is about to be a mama herself, took a screenshot of the story Blake posted and wrote, “Yes @blakelivdly one more time for the people in the back!!!”
Aside from little better, Blake is also mom to two more girls – 6-year-old James and 4-year-old Inez, whom she had with husband Ryan Reynolds. Meanwhile Sophie, who is having her baby with husband Joe Jonas will be due in the middle of summer.
