Blake Lively Says She Felt Insecure While Trying to Find Clothes After Having Third Child

Blake Lively is looking back at her press tour from one year ago, when she was promoting her movie The Rhythm Section.

The now 33-year-old actress had just given birth to her daughter Betty about four months earlier and she is now opening up about feeling insecure while picking out clothes for her press appearances.

“I put together a @lavinoffical shirt and dress from @netaporter to make this pretty outfit. Because no one had samples that fit me after giving birth. And so many clothes from stores didn’t fit either. So. Many,” Blake said on Instagram Stories along with a photo from her Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon appearance.

She continued, “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. And 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.”

Blake then gave a shout-out to Katie Sturino, the founder of Megababe, who she says is “challenging brands to do better, helping women to not feel alone. And she’s making meaningful progress. She reminds me, we all can ask for better from the brands we love.”

Blake and her husband Ryan Reynolds have three kids together – daughters James, 6, Inez, 4, and Betty, 16 months.
