Move over #dadbod. There’s a hot new bod in town. And it looks like a powerful woman who just performed one of life’s greatest miracles.
Cosmopolitan and Redbook teamed up to photograph five moms who hadn’t strapped on a bikini since giving birth. While each mom had a different story to tell and #mombod to show for it, the women all agreed on one thing: They loved their bodies.
Take it from Arielle, who says, “I have more confidence than I’ve ever had.” After gaining 50 pounds, she explains that becoming a mom entails a priority shift. Rather than focusing on her body as much, she has more important things, like her daughter, to worry about.
