Jessica Alba wore two corsets for three months to lose baby weight
"It was brutal; it's not for everyone," she tells Net-A-Porter. "I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was sweaty, but worth it."
Apparently, it's not that rare. "The concept behind abdominal binders is very common after surgery and after the delivery of a baby to help support abdominal muscles, help with posture and reduce the feeling of bloating," says Dr. Jennifer Ashton, ABC News' medical correspondent.
