post pregnancy fajas
Corbis
I have to admit, when I first heard that Jessica Alba wore a double corset for three months straight to flatten her post-pregnancy belly, I really wasn't surprised at all. Latinas have been using this trick for years and it seems like now is when everyone is catching on, including shapewear brands that are designing girdles especially for women who want to get their pre-pregnancy bods back. The difference is the shapewear from today is WAY more comfortable than the ones our mamás and abuelitas used to wear back in the day. So if you're looking to lose that tummy, I might just have the perfect solution. Check out a few of these 11 tummy-flattening fajas that will snap you back into shape in no time!
