SEE: New figure, new wardrobe! Unathi’s sexy new slim style

Unathi is having fun with fashion after losing a whopping 28-kilograms (and counting).

The singer started her weight-loss journey after gaining weight during both her pregnancies.

“I tend to gain a lot of weight during pregnancy,” she told Women’s Health in 2015. Unathi decided to take action after her second pregnancy in 2011 when she was at her heaviest.

“I didn’t want to look like my husband’s aunty – I wanted to go back to being his sexy girlfriend,” she told the publication.

Her post-pregnancy kilos started to fall off after she started a weight-loss regime that saw her changing her eating plan, exercising a lot more and training for the Unlimited Dusi canoe marathon in 2014.

“November 2011 Vs August 2018 I was NOT pregnant in the first pic in fact my baby girl was already six months old. It has taken me SEVEN years to get here! Be PATIENT! Be KIND to yourself! KNOW that it is POSSIBLE,” she captioned a before and after picture of her weight loss on Instagram last month.

Unathi is looking better than ever and it shows in the way she dresses.

The Idols SA judge is not afraid to show some skin and make braver fashion choices – something she might have shied away from seven years ago.

Here’s a look at how she is embracing her body transformation with fashion.

Abs on fleek

Long after Unathi gave birth to her second child in 2011, many people still believed she was pregnant. But we doubt anyone would be making that assumption in 2018.

Unathi’s abs regularly make an appearance on social media. Her wardrobe of choice for workout sessions is cropped top and a pair of gym tights. We don’t blame her for showing off her abs at every opportunity, we would too if we looked as good as her.

Sexy legs

Pre-2015 Unathi would rarely be seen in a “little black dress”. These days the singer is all about her LBD.

She showed off her sexy legs in this sparkly black number for an episode of Idols SA.

Figure hugging

Women with fuller figures sometimes hide their lumps and bumps with loose fitting clothing.

Unathi was no different, but since working her butt off to lose all her pregnancy weight she has been embracing figure hugging clothing.

Bikini babe

You know that you have made some serious gains at the gym when you confidently show off your body in a bikini. Unathi told her Instagram followers in 2017 that she always dreamed of wearing a bikini.

“You are allowed to DREAM! Mine was to be able to wear a bikini again! That meant silencing those who said ‘But what about the fat? What about the cellulite? What about the stretch marks?’ I knew I WANTED IT BADLY enough to put in the time and dedication! DONT LET THEM PSYCHE YOU OUT! Don’t you dare! LOVE yourself ENOUGH to achieve your dream! To gain or to lose weight that is within YOU!”
