We wrote about DWTS' Brooke Burke almost 5 years ago about her secret in losing the post-baby belly. She's had 4 kids and of course looks SUPER incredible. Yeah, we want to hate her, but she seems so-oooo nice.
"For centuries, women from around the world have been wrapping their post-pregnancy bellies to get back into shape quickly and naturally. It is believed that a belly wrap reduces the size of the swollen uterus, reduces water retention in the belly, and helps you lose inches fast, all while supporting that unwanted baggy baby skin! Tauts should be worn after delivery for forty days."
And we heard today on 'Good Morning America,' that Jessica Alba also wore a corset to speed up the post-baby weight loss + tummy toning.
This is what 31-year-old Jessica + mom-of-2 told Net-a-Porter magazine:
"I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was brutal; it’s not for everyone."
Jessica adds, "It was sweaty, but worth it."
Does it REALLY work?
Yes, says GMA's Dr. Jennifer Ashton, senior medical contributor. "The concept behind abdominal binders is very common after surgery and after the delivery of a baby to help support abdominal muscles, help with posture and reduce the feeling of bloating."
"Imagine taking a big breath and never fully exhaling," she says. "That’s basically the feeling the person has for hours."
Brooke Burke sells her own corsets at her baboosh website for $56-$62.
So, you ask.....do these celebrities just use a corset to regain amazing, flat abs or is there some tummy-tucking plastic surgery also going ?
Well, who are we to judge.
We would like to assume that it's more than a corset, but we could never prove it. Still, a worthy post-baby beauty tip!
