Jessica Alba Wore Double Corset To Tone Up After Giving Birth

Jessica Alba is gorgeous, but it seems the mother of two needed a little extra help when it came to toning up after giving birth to her second daughter, Haven, in 2011. She told Net-a-Porter, "I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was sweaty, but worth it."

The star gave birth to Honor in 2008 followed by Haven three years later, and understands that mothers have different ways of getting back into shape. "It was brutal. It’s not for everyone,” she said.

While Alba took to a (double) corset to tone up, experts warn against using a girdle after a pregnancy, due to the fact that your muscles can get used to it and can be weakened. 

What do you think of this news? Do you applaud Alba for being so candid or do you think this method is too extreme? Share in the comments!
