Jessica Alba Reveals The Secret To Her Post-Baby Body: A Corset!

Jessica Alba found a bizarre way to lose weight following the birth of her second daughter, Haven. She wore a corset every day for three months. 

In a new interview with Net-A-Porter, the 31-year-old mum revealed that she wore not one, but TWO girdles, day and night, to help her shift the excess pounds. (What excess pounds?!) 

She said: “It was brutal; it’s not for everyone. I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was sweaty, but worth it.”  

Jessica, who’s mum to four-year-old Honor and Haven, 20 months, will be showing off her incredibly toned body in the Sin City sequel later this year. And she’s revealed that it wasn’t just her waist that her two children have affected – but her acting, too.

She adds: “My approach to acting now is different – I’m fearless because I have nothing to lose. Before [children] my identity was wrapped up in every decision. Now, I don’t care. It could be a pile of s**t and you could think it was the worst thing you ever saw, but I still had the best experience.”    

We’ll tell you what isn’t a great experience… sleeping in a corset. Ouch!
