“Yes @blakelively one more time for the people in the back,” Turner wrote on her Instagram story.
After welcoming her daughter in October 2019, Lively said her postpartum body made her feel confused and less confident about herself.
“I put together a @lanvinofficial shirt and dress from @netaporter to make this pretty outfit,” Lively wrote on her Instagram stories above a throwback pic of herself with Jimmy Fallon.
“Because no one had samples that fit me after giving birth. And so many clothes from stores didn’t fit either. So. Many. It doesn’t send a great message to women when their bodies don’t fit into what brands have to offer,” she continued.
The Age of Adaline star said that experience was “alienating and confusing” to her and it also made her feel anything but confident.
“A year later looking back. That body gave me a baby. And was producing that baby’s entire food supply,” she said. “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.”
Blake's postpartum experience is so important and relatable, and hopefully, all of the clothing designers are listening to what she and Sophie have to say.
