Blake Lively says she felt ‘insecure’ about her body after the birth of her third child and struggled finding clothes that fit
Though she is smiling in the image, she stated she keeps in mind having a challenging time discovering a clothing for the look due to the fact that “no one had samples that fit me after giving birth.”
“I put together a @lavinoffical shirt and dress from @netaporter to make this pretty outfit,” she composed in the Instagram story, including that “so many clothes from stores didn’t fit either.”
“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. 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. But instead of feeling proud, I felt insecure. Simply because I didn’t fit into clothes. How silly is that in retrospect.”
Lively, whose partner is star Ryan Reynolds, went on to applaud business owner Katie Sturino, the creator of MegaBabe, who uses her platform to contact designers to have more inclusive sizing.
“@katiesturino and others are out there challenging brands to do better, helping women to not feel alone,” Vibrant composed. “And she’s making meaningful progress.”
“It’s never boycott this brand, this brand doesn’t support women with real curves,” she stated. “I think that it’s much better to call a designer in, or a brand in, and educate them on the fact that like, ‘hey, you’re missing out on a part of the population, the majority of the population, and you should maybe think about offering larger sizes.'”
