After much reflection, The Age of Adaline star said she should’ve been more kind to herself.
“And I wish I felt as confident then as I do now, a year later looking back,” she explained. “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.”
Before signing off, Blake tagged fellow fashionista and Megababe founder Katie Sturino, who has called out brands for their lack of inclusive sizing in the past.
“@katiesturino and others are out there challenging brands to do better, helping women to not feel alone,” the actress shared, “And she’s making meaningful progress. She reminds me, we all can ask for better from the brands we love.”
The mogul saw Blake’s tag and later re-posted it on her Instagram Stories, writing, “Wow!!! Waking up to an amazing message about body acceptance and fashion brands from @blakelively.”
