Jessica Alba has revealed the secret to her slamming post-pregnancy body.
"I wore a girdle," the 28 year-old actress told Elle. "Eight weeks after my girlfriend had her baby, you could see her six-pack. She told me to put an elastic band around my waist - any kind of band or girdle works."
The Fantastic Four star admitted that she attempted to improve her appearance with exercise, which didn't help.
The workouts, she said, "were horrible. I cried. And I haven't worked out since."
Ironically, Alba found giving birth to be easier.
"Contractions aren't that bad," she says. "If you've ever had bad cramps? That's what they're like. But that moment when they put the baby on your chest - that's deep. It's a deep experience."
Worth the girdle, we're guessing.
