Binky Felstead felt "disgusting" after giving birth.
The former 'Made in Chelsea' star has admitted she was appalled by her body after she delivered her daughter India, whom she has with her boyfriend Josh 'JP' Patterson, 13 months ago because she was "bigger" and couldn't fit clothes to fit.
Speaking to The Sun Online, she said: "When I gave birth to India I was bigger. I felt disgusting. I had a summer baby so it was hot and I just couldn't find anything nice to wear as none of my clothes seemed to fit.
"It felt like my identity had gone, and I had lost my confidence."
Binky - who is still close to her former co-stars Louise Thompson and Rosie Fortescue - constantly compared herself to her famous pals.
She explained: "All my friends around me were looking all slim, and tanned, and wearing next to nothing. I'm the first one of my friendship group to have a baby so I didn't know what to expect."
The 28-year-old beauty previously said that exercising and keeping fit has changed her as a mother because she thinks it makes her happier and less stress.
She said: "I know working out doesn't just benefit me physically, it also has a huge mental impact. This year I'm more motivated than ever to get into the gym as I know it will help me become a better mum to India. I love the rush of endorphins and surge of energy after training. It sets me up for the day."
However, Binky revealed she doesn't like to do anything too strenuous and is relying on her personal trainer Tyrone to help her get the best results.
She explained: "I couldn't train for a while after the arrival of India, but after being signed off by my doctor, I started working with my personal trainer Tyrone Brennard on a slightly modified training plan ... Nothing too strenuous, it's gradually easing me back into fitness.
"It always takes a while to get into a routine after a break but I'm getting back into the swing of things and can feel myself improving with each session. Tyrone's a huge believer in varying training to reduce the risk of boredom, so we train anywhere and everywhere - at home, in the park, at the gym..."
