Whitney Port gave birth to her son Sonny Sanford in July, but she has no intentions of sprinting back to her pre-baby weight. Instead, she's teaming up with thredUP to sell some of her pre-pregnancy clothes so that she can fill her closet with apparel that's better suited for her new figure.

"Some people have been asking me what I'm doing to drop the baby weight," Port said in a statement. "And I'm thinking, 'Lay off people, I just made a human!' Honestly, I'm feeling more confident than ever, and I'm just rejecting the idea that I have to bounce back to a certain size."
In your closet, you're bound to find items like The Dress You'll Wear When Your Boobs Are Bigger, The Jeans You'll Try On When Your Butt Is Rounder, or The Top That Will Look Amazing Once Your Shoulders Are Narrower. Ditching those items is a great way to embrace the body you have right now. (Related: What Every Woman Needs to Know About Self-Esteem)

Along with cleaning out her closet, The Hills alum also wanted to give back to the community, which is why all proceeds from her sales will go toward Every Mother Counts, a nonprofit dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother by raising funds to support maternal health programs around the world.
"I'm excited that the proceeds from this sale will benefit Every Mother Counts, and thredUP.com will match every dollar raised," she continued. "I'm also selling some super-cute clothes I wore throughout my pregnancy."
