“I think you just feel really feminine,” Teigen tells the magazine, during her first post-baby shoot. “I always felt like a bit of a tomboy, and I never looked at my body as particularly sexual -- I wasn’t a curvy girl. But to be able to see my body afterwards, and of course you get, like, hips. Finally, for the first time, I feel like I have a bit more of a womanly figure.”
The new mom also opens up further about her body image, admitting that she’s most comfortable when she’s naked.
“I would much rather shoot completely naked than in a swimsuit, it’s just always been my thing,” she shares. "I’ve never been much of a beach girl. I grew up in Washington -- it’s freezing in that ocean. So it’s out of my comfort zone, and it’s the craziest thing that I’m probably most known for Sports Illustrated, when that’s how I feel the most uncomfortable.”
