Good Morning America: Jessica Alba Girdle
“Actress, author, entrepreneur and mother of two" Jessica Alba is known for her great looks, but she said it has been harder than you might think to get back into beach body shape after giving birth to her kids. Have you considered wearing corsets or girdles to shape up your post-baby body?
“I wore a double corset day and night for three months," she said in a new interview. I wonder what Dr Oz would say about that method.
GMA: Post-Pregnancy Girdles
GMA’s Dr Jennifer Ashton said a corset after childbirth can provide support to the abdominal muscles. But it doesn’t sound comfortable, and even Alba admitted “it’s not for everyone."
Dr Ashton said you probably feel like you are never fully exhaling while wearing a corset. I thought we said goodbye to corsets with the end of the Victorian era. But it sounds like they are having a renaissance, with Gwyneth Paltrow, Kourtney Kardashian, and Jennifer Garner are among the rumored new moms wearing corsets.

Brooke Burke Charvet from Dancing With The Stars said it gives the feeling of support. She said that she created her own version of a corset.
Dr Ashton said that post-pregnancy baby weight loss is nothing new. Moms try a variety of tactics, including girdles.
Bianna Golodryga said she wore a corset after her pregnancy, noting that “it trains your core" and that she didn’t want to take it off. This has been a popular trend in Europe for many years as well.
