Molly-Mae Hague says 'the struggle is real' over clothes shopping despair after having a baby

New mum Molly-Mae Hague has shared her despair after returning from a shopping spree only to find that her purchases from Zara didn't fit. The 23-year-old former Love Island star took to her Instagram to make a honest and relatable admission after her trip to the Trafford Centre.

Sharing a picture of her dressing room as she took a snap seated on the floor, Molly-Mae wrote: "Just tried everything on that I got in Zara but nothing fitted me. The struggle of not knowing what size to buy after you have a baby is real.2

In the picture Molly-Mae, who welcomed baby daughter Bambi with Manchester boxer Tommy Fury on January 23, appeared to be wearing her PJs. "Mess x" she wrote about the state of the room after trying on.


Molly-Mae, the creative director for fashion brand PrettyLittleThing, then shared a pile of her old clothes on hangers as she said she would be using the reselling fashion marketplace Depop: "Also clear out py2 Keep your eyes peeled for my Depop! You asked so you shall receive!" she exclaimed.

A couple of weeks ago Molly-Mae gave fans a glimpse inside her stunning home, showing off her huge dressing room as she got to work on clearing out unwanted clothes. The former Love Island star revealed she was having an overdue wardrobe sort out in a video shared on her Instagram.

Filming herself sorting out the wardrobe inside her £4million mansion, she could be seen sorting through a huge collection of casualwear that was all neatly lined-up and colour-coded. She used a stepladder to reach some of the items on the top rails.

She told her 7.5million followers that she had wanted to have a clear out for "sooooo long." "Let's clear out... I have been wanting to do this for SOOOOO LONG," she confessed. And she added: "Feels so good."

She took a picture of a pile of sweatshirts onto the floor as she declared: "One section of the wardrobe done. When I clear out... I CLEAR out."

It's almost a year since moved into the home named 'Molly Maison.' The reality TV lovebirds, who met on the ITV2 dating series Love Island in 2019, began their 'new chapter' by buying their first house together.

At the weekend Molly-Mae has shared 'the truth' with her loyal followers as she opened up about life as a new mum. She sat back down in front of the camera for the first time since sharing her birth story on YouTube last month.

In a new video posted on Sunday (March 26) titled 'The Truth', the influencer became emotional as she discussed her feelings. "I feel like there's just so much to say and so much to talk about that I literally don't know where to start," she said into the camera. "I don't feel like I'm being myself, and I don't know why I'm getting upset but I feel like I'm questioning everything I'm saying and what are people going to think if I say that."

Becoming emotional, Molly-Mae went on to share: "Nothing I say is making sense. My brain is jumbled and I don't feel like myself. It's not that I need more time to come back because I do feel ready to come back and want more than anything to come back to YouTube. I want it more than anything but maybe I've left it too long and I have so much to say that I feel overwhelmed and don't know where to begin."

Molly-Mae said that she was 'run down' and struggling to recover from her cold because of 'mum life' before telling fans she wanted to fill them in on 'what I've been going through and what I've been struggling with'.

Saying she's a 'good mum' to her daughter, who is now two-months-old, Molly-Mae added: "Becoming a mum is the best thing to ever happen to me but it is also the hardest thing that has ever happened to me. I have found it really really hard, the one word to describe it, to describe the past two months would be overwhelming.

"Every single day you can't believe the 360 your life has taken, it is a very hard thing to wrap your head around, it is the biggest life change that no one can prepare you for."
