Victoria’s Secret model Marisa Miller isn’t letting something like pregnancy stop her from posing for nearly (and in one case, completely) naked photos.
Miller, who’s expecting a boy with husband Griffin Guess in early December, bared her pregnant belly and the rest of her body for Allure.
“I always felt, even before I got pregnant, that it’s better to accentuate your curves. A lot of women try to tuck their butt in or kind of slouch because they’re trying to hide,” the 34-year-old says. “Obviously, you can’t suck it in, but it’s important to really show off the belly. For some reason, for me, from the side it looks the biggest, so that’s what I tried to do.”
On her body’s transformation during the pregnancy, Miller says, “I had never even owned a scale before, but gaining weight is part of charting your progress. Yes, I was seeing numbers I’d never seen before, but I let go of that because I had a new goal and focus.”
So how did she avoid stretch marks while she was gaining those pregnancy pounds?
“Molly [Simms] posted this recipe [on her blog]: shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E. I made it myself, boiling the ingredients, and I poured it into Mason jars. I’ve loved the community of women who share their tips,” she says.
