Kailyn Lowry’s Sexy Postpartum Photo Shoot Shows ‘Love for Myself’

Kailyn Lowry is proud of her body — as well she should be after giving birth to four children. But the Teen Mom 2 star knows that not everyone has a positive attitude about postpartum bodies. That’s why she and her photographer shared some of the gorgeous pics from a boudoir photoshoot she did just two months after having fourth son Creed.

“Moms don’t get enough credit; women in general don’t get enough credit,” Lowry wrote on Instagram, accompanying a photo of herself in just a bra and jeans. “We are expected to do all the things: carry our babies for 9-10 months, breastfeed, (for some of us) raise other kids, be up all hours of the night, hit the ground running with work & then are mom shamed when we want/need time to ourselves (when we deserve it!)”

Speak it!

moms don’t get enough credit, women in general don’t get enough credit. we are expected to do all the things. carry our babies for 9-10 months, breastfeed, (for some of us) raise other kids, be up all hours of the night, hit the ground running with work & then are mom shamed when we want/need time to ourselves (when we deserve it!) motherhood isn’t supposed to be a competition – and neither are our bodies. this shoot was a challenge for me. i’ve birthed 4 humans & people expect my body to snap back immediately. when it doesn’t – i get body shamed, when I go to the gym it’s selfish. when I love my body, it’s unhealthy. there is no “winning” for me in the court of public opinion. all of this being said, i decided to do shit at my own pace. i decided i would start here – a photoshoot to be proud of my body and really love what it has been capable of doing 4x – but also as a starting point in my fitness & health journey. hopefully i will be able to look back on these photos & see significant changes & progress – but still have love for myself & all that my body has gone through. cheers to loving ourselves & our bodies and to supporting & uplifting other women & moms 🖤 photo: @hannah.rachael.photography make up: @flawlyssartistry jeans: @goodamerican

“Motherhood isn’t supposed to be a competition — and neither are our bodies,” Lowry continued. “This shoot was a challenge for me. I’ve birthed 4 humans & people expect my body to snap back immediately. When it doesn’t – I get body shamed. When I go to the gym, it’s selfish. When I love my body, it’s unhealthy. There is no ‘winning’ for me in the court of public opinion.”

The comments on her post, and on photographer Hannah Rachael’s posts of other pics from the shoot, are full of praise and admiration for Lowry. That’s not to say she didn’t also get negative remarks or concern trolls that have since been deleted.

I just want to come on here and say thank you to all the positive comments, love and feedback! @kaillowry was amazing. She was so sweet, honest, and we laughed the entire time! We also had some honest conversations about how society and the media expects so much of her. She’s a mom of 4 adorable boys, running an empire of businesses, and needed a day to feel good about her. In my studio I follow a two week rule. That means the only things that get photoshopped out are bruises, blemishes, or marks that won’t be on the body in two weeks. I do not photoshop bodies, I do not remove stretch marks, and I do not alter what makes you YOU. We posed, laughed, danced behind the scenes, and released all the tensions we had about what society wanted and did what she wanted. Be who YOU want to be & Never be afraid to love yourself. No body is perfect. We are all human. We all deserve love, support, and respect. Boudoir is about empowering yourself. Some are empowered by staying covered, some empowered by showing off their new hot bods. Either way, someone else’s opinion doesn’t define who you are. You’re perfect and exactly where you’re supposed to be in life. Keep doing you girl. #gohometrolls @flawlyssartistry @kaillowry @hannah.rachael.photography @torrid

I will always stand up and fight for my amazing clients…. I don’t have the loudest voice (yet) but I will always be cheering them on regardless. I will always help you love your body. I will always show you you’re worth so much more than you’ll ever know. I will teach you that the scars on your body are beautiful and they’re there to tell your story. That society and media HAVE NO SAY IN HOW YOU SHOULD LOOK. ( Their opinion doesn’t matter and it’s shit anyways. ) You are the main character in your life and your opinion of yourself is the only thing that matters. Scars are beautiful, cellulite is beautiful, curves are beautiful… You are beautiful Empowered babe : @kaillowry Makeup by @flawlyssartistry @hannah.rachael.photography

For her part, Lowry also told followers that she is on a “fitness and health journey” at her own pace. This photoshoot serves a dual purpose, she explained. “Hopefully, I will be able to look back on these photos & see significant changes & progress — but still have love for myself & all that my body has gone through. … Cheers to loving ourselves & our bodies and to supporting & uplifting other women & moms.”

Lowry already has two podcasts, a haircare line, and plenty of business as an influencer. But if she wants to branch out into motivational speaking and coaching, she may have something there.

We love Kailyn Lowry’s boys’ names, as well as these other celebrities’ unique baby names.
