Blake shared a picture from her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last year.

And it turns out her wide smile didn't reflect how she was actually feeling inside.

She said, 'I put together a @lavinoffical shirt and dress from @netaporter to make this pretty outfit.'

The actress explained, 'Because no one had samples that fit me after giving birth.'

'And so many clothes from stores didn't fit either. So. Many.'

'It doesn't send a great message to women when their bodies don't fit into what brands have to offer.'

Blake said, 'It's alienating and confusing.'

'And I wish I felt as confident then as I do now, a year later looking back. That body gave me a baby.'

'And was producing that baby's entire food supply.'

She continued, 'What a beautiful miracle. But instead of feeling proud, I felt insecure.'

'Simply because I didn't fit into clothes. How silly is that in retrospect.'

The actress went on to acknowledge the work of Megababe founder, Katie Sturino.
