Motherhood Makes Chrissy Teigen Rethink Her Style (And We’re Into It)

“I really just try to wear things that make me feel a little more confident,” the model says. 

Celebrities: They're just like us. At least Chrissy Teigen is. Oh, sure—she has a famous husband, a stunning home and a few Sports Illustrated spreads, but when it comes right down to it, the model has been refreshingly candid and (dare we say?) relatable throughout her pregnancy and early days of motherhood...and as far as we can tell, that's not changing anytime soon. 

Chrissy opened up about her changed body, and unlike so many celebrities who claim the weight "just melted off," Chrissy is clear about one thing: Her body does not look exactly like it did before she got pregnant.

“Every shoot I have right now, I request like all one-pieces please or anything high-waisted,” Chrissy told PEOPLE. “I’m still definitely not comfortable. I think I’m fine in clothes. But am I comfortable naked or in a bikini? Not exactly yet.”

We think Mrs. John Legend looks amazing (like, really amazing, especially considering she just welcomed baby Luna in April) but we get it: Pregnancy and childbirth can do a real number on your body, and while looking a bit different after the fact is totally fine, it can be tough to reach that place where you feel comfortable with all the changes your body undergoes. 

For Chrissy, it's all about making subtle style changes to flatter her post-baby body. “I really just try to wear things that make me feel a little more confident,” she said. The model favors pencil skirts, tailored trousers and silk dresses.
