Jessica Alba went to extreme measures to lose weight after giving birth to her second daughter Haven in August 2011. "I wore a double corset day and night for three months," the 31-year-old tells Net-a-Porter. "It was sweaty, but worth it." Calling her weight loss method "brutal," Alba adds that "it's not for everyone."

The Honest Company founder and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For actress also speaks about her marriage to Cash Warren, whom she wed in May 2008 following a four-year courtship. Between their busy careers and the responsibilities of parenthood, the star and her movie producer hubby were forced to put their relationship on the back burner. After taking a recent trip to St. Barts — sans daughters Honor and Haven — the couple feels closer than ever.

"It was our first trip in six years that wasn't a work trip," Alba says. "I didn't realize how important it was until we got home and I was like 'We like each other! We really are best friends.'"

Alba adds, "I knew we were rooting for each other every day and we'd made these two people who are my favorite things on the planet, but having that time just us, it was cool to connect. We both chose the right person."
