Chrissy Teigen: 'My pre-baby body is not back yet'

The model has become a big fan of latex.

Chrissy Teigen still has work to do to reach her pre-baby body, insisting she is still a bit "soft".

John Legend's wife welcomed daughter Luna Simone in April (16) and since the birth, the 30-year-old has been showing off her slimmed-down figure, even posing in a sexy swimsuit over America's Independence Day holiday (02-04Jul16). However, the model insists she has been wearing a lot of Spanx and waist trainers to help her look great.

"I'm not back yet by any means," she tells People magazine. "I think people think that I've snapped back, but I really have just in fact been utilising undergarments more than ever."

"I never was a Spanx person or a waist trainer person," she continues. "Now I do it. It looks great on the outside, but trust me, I'm a bit soft."

Chrissy recently made a cameo in Fergie's provocative M.I.L.F.$. video and shortly after the promo aired, many viewers suggested Kim Kardashian, who was also featured in the video, was Photoshopped because of her thin appearance months after welcoming son Saint West. However, Teigen reveals she and her pal owe their sleek physiques to latex.

"Everybody is talking about how we were all Photoshopped," she says. "No, latex is another being. You've never seen anything like it. Latex gives where it needs to give and cinches where it needs to cinch. It's like magic. Latex is magic."

In the video, Chrissy is seen breastfeeding her infant daughter, and while the scene quickly started trending online, the model just saw it as a natural moment.

"They closed down the set because Luna was so new. She was maybe four-weeks-old. They turned off the air. They cleared people out. And it was her natural lunch time anyway... I think it's beautiful."

"They were so accommodating of a newborn baby, and John was watching," Teigen added. "Honestly, it was like 10 minutes, but it went by so fast. I loved it."
