Megan Fox is one of the world’s most beautiful women, and now she has a plan about how to help other women feel good about themselves.
The mum of three boys, who is now the co-owner of lingerie store Frederick’s of Hollywood, is urging other mums to wear lingerie after she was surprised how good she felt being photographed in nice underwear.
The 30-year-old said she had a boost of confidence when she was photographed wearing lingerie in a recent photo shoot, just five months after the birth of her third child.
“I went into it kind of worried, but it makes you appreciate your body,” she said in an interview with Cosmopolitan.
“I hadn’t been wearing lingerie before that, and I looked in the mirror, and I was like, the fact that I look this way after having a baby is a miracle, and I was thankful, and it gave me a little boost of confidence.”
Now, the mum of Noah, three, Bodhi, two, and seven-month-old Journey, with her husband Brian Green, wants mums to put on lingerie even before they think they’re ready, as her own experience was so empowering.
“I think maybe more women should try it, not prancing around in lingerie in front of large groups of people, but just wearing it at home before they think they’re ready,” she said.
“They might surprise themselves and see their bodies in ways they weren’t anticipating.”
She also talked about how “freeing” it felt to get back into shape after kids.
Sounds all good in theory, but let’s not forget she is Megan Fox. Most of us don’t have access to the same help and resources that she does. And most importantly, most of us do not possess the exceptional genes of this stunning beauty.
If you feel up to putting on sexy lingerie five months after you birth a baby, then embrace the experience. If you don’t, that’s perfectly fine as well. I had my third child nearly seven years ago and I still don’t feel the desire to put on sexy lingerie, nor do I find the experience of getting into shape “freeing”.
I can think of many more empowering things to do. Like eating cake.
