Blake Lively shared the hard time she had fitting into sample sizes by famous designers after she had given birth to her third child. The Gossip Girl actress, Blake Lively, gave birth to her third child with hubby, Ryan Reynolds in late 2019. She recently shared pictures of herself during that time, on her Instagram stories reminiscing her curated looks.

Her look was put together because she could not find many brand-name clothes that fit her

She praised the celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz and showed off her shirt-dress combo that she had worn for an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. She stated that she wore a Lanvin shirt and a Net-A-Porter dress because “no one had samples that fit me after giving birth.” She added that so many clothes from stores did not fit her either.

The 33-year-old actress mentioned that this does not send a great message to women and it can be alienating and affect women’s self-esteem and confidence. She posted in a poignant way that her pregnant body was creating a miracle and to feel insecure simply because certain clothes do not fit is so silly.

The Power Couple of Hollywood have a great family

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynold tied the knot back in 2012 and have three beautiful daughters together- James, 6; Inez, 4 and Betty, 1. It is not the first time for Blake to get back in shape after a pregnancy. In 2016, she had to get in bikini-ready shape in two months after giving birth to James for her beach-horror movie The Shallows. Back then too she had pointed out that eating healthy and training regularly is the only way to get fit as it is not normal for women to look like that just eight months after giving birth.

In 2018, after giving birth to her second daughter Inez, she had embraced her post-birth body saying that the only way to lose all the weight gained during pregnancy is to train and eating healthy and not have crazy expectations. She stated that it was insane to put pressure on herself to look like a model after having a baby but so is the nature of her job.

Blake Lively tagged Katie Sturino, an entrepreneur, and body positivity promoter. She mentioned that Katie reminds us that we can ask for better from the brands we love.
