A mere five months after giving birth to her second child, Kristin Cavallari is already back at work in full force, proving that bikinis aren’t just for your life pre-baby. The model and actress recently did a swimsuit-clad shoot for Modeliste Magazine and looks killer in a black swimsuit that shows off all sorts of curves.

While she is in great shape now, in her book, Balancing in Heels, Kristin admits that she’s tried every fad diet there ever was in order to be “slim,” including spending five days a week nearly fasting with her weekends full of binge eating and drinking. Now that she has kids, she’s realized that this type of eating isn’t best for her or for her kids, and she’s working on eating healthy foods and exercise to maintain a healthy weight.

We’re loving that Kristin looks natural and healthy, and that she isn’t pretending that it’s easy to be fit after having babies. We want to see more gorgeous mamas out there rocking bikinis like Kristin, and we’re hoping her photo shoot inspires them to follow.
