10 Ways Normal Women Can Get Chrissy Teigen ’s Post-Baby Body Confidence . Model Chrissy Teigen apparently has shocked some people by declaring that she feels sexier after having had her first baby.

No topic is off limits for the candid mum-of-one; not the stretchmarks on her legs, and not the liposuction she had because she felt self-conscious about her body. And that's precisely why we love her.

Through her realness, Chrissy reminds us that nobody is perfect and everyone has hang-ups about the way they look, even a supermodel. So here we take a look back at the best lessons in self-love and body positivity we've learnt from our favourite real-talk woman, Chrissy.

Never apologise for your naked body

Care less about stretchmarks and more about wine

The 32-year-old taught us all a lesson in body positivity when she uploaded a picture of what appeared to be stretch marks on her inner thigh.

Chrissy later revealed that she needed a little dutch courage to upload the sensitive photo, writing, "When I drink wine I say 'whatevs' and sober Chrissy doesn't like it."

"I do not post stretchies for the praise," she explained.

"I post it because the wine also I like the pattern and they're so soft."

"Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything," she began.

"We have nutritionists, we have dietitians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies," she admits of the endless resources available to those in the limelight.

"We have people who make it possible for us to get back into shape. But nobody should feel like that's normal, or like that's realistic."

Don't be ashamed of changing your body if you're unhappy with it

"I had an armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things," the mother-of-one told Refinery29 of her liposuction of the armpits.

"It's a big secret, but I don't care," she continued. "It was nine years ago or so. And I had two inches to my armpit. Now it's back though, so now I've gotta pay for [liposuction] again."

"It was so easy. It made me feel better in dresses; I felt more confident. It was the dumbest, stupidest thing I've ever done. The dumbest, but I like it, whatever. I have no regrets, honestly."

We love Chrissy for reminding us to be ourselves, love our selves and to laugh at ourselves.

Spain was next on our list and, unable to decide between Barcelona and San Sebastian, we figured porque no los dos? Greece had always been a dream of mine, so we settled on Santorini for the views and Athens for the history.
