Actress Jessica Alba, who turned 32 last Sunday, wore a double corset to get back in shape after the birth of her first daughter Honor, now four years old.

The actress wore the corset continuously for three months and managed to get rid of the extra pounds.

"I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was brutal, it's not for everyone. It was sweaty but worth it," quoted Alba as saying.

She had seven months off after second daughter Haven was born 20 months ago. She also revealed that recently she and her businessman-husband Cash Warren went on a holiday to St Barts in the Caribbean to put the spark back in their five-year-old marriage.

The actress will next feature in "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For", described as neo-noir movie.
