Video: Chrissy Teigen would like you to see her mozzie bitten “mom bod”

Chrissy Teigen with baby Miles in Bali

Chrissy Tegien is keen to provide a less airbrushed view of postpartum bodies, sharing footage of her own from her family’s Bali holiday.

“Mom bod alert”

“Mom bod alert,” Chrissy posted. “Mosquito bites are a nice touch.”

She went on to note that with everyone on Instagram cultivating six packs, ‘bouncing back’ and whatnot, there’s not a lot of room for bodies that take their own good time to sort themselves out after the transformation that is childbirth.

“Instagram is crazy,” she pointed out. “I think it’s awesome people have killer bodies and are proud to show them off (I really do!!) but I know how hard it can be to forget what (for lack of a better word) regular ol’ bodies look like when everyone looks bonkers amazing.”

“Also I don’t really call this “body confidence” because I’m not quite there yet. I’m still super insecure. I’m just happy that I can make anyone else out there feel better about themselves!”

“I like the pattern”

It’s not the first time Chrissy’s tackled postpartum body image. She’s on the record as being a paid-up and passionate member of the stretch mark club, noting that her stretchies are part of the family.

“I do not post stretchies for the praise,” she noted last year, “I post it because the wine, also I like the pattern and they’re so soft.”

“Lol my thighs have tributaries,” she captioned a 2016 post of the stretch marks on her legs.
