Jessica SimpsonHer post-baby body has been under a microscope ever since she gave birth to her daughter, Maxwell -- and it's pretty obvious that Jessica Simpson's efforts to shed her pregnancy pounds are finally paying off. Jessica was spotted showing off her toned legs yesterday while leaving a photo shoot in Los Angeles. And judging from this photo, whatever exercise she's doing to get back in shape is doing wonders for her lower half.

And since Jess is no dummy when it comes to playing up her best assets and looking great in her clothes, this isn't the first time she's worn an outfit similar to this black get-up that covers most of her body -- allowing her legs to take center stage.

A couple weeks ago, while out to dinner at Fig & Olive in Los Angeles with her fiance Eric Johnson, Jessica chose a cute little beige number that hid every ounce of skin, except for her legs, of course. (Gee, why don't more new moms use this little trick?)

Most moms will tell you that getting rid of baby weight is no easy feat, and it can be pretty tough to find clothes that fit correctly and still look flattering as you're making your way back to your pre-baby size. It can be so tough to disguise those pesky problem areas that are taking a bit longer to slim down, but Jessica seems to have found the perfect solution.

By making her legs the focal point of her current style, she's taking the focus off the fact that her mid-section still has a bit of a ways to go before she's back to wearing slinky dresses. Whenever people look at her, their eyes are immediately drawn to her gorgeous gams -- and it's pretty tough to deny that her hard work is paying off.

And even though she's under quite a bit of pressure to lose the baby weight since she's a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, it's pretty obvious that Jess isn't letting those last few pregnancy pounds ruin her positive attitude. She knows she's making incredible progress, and she's not afraid to flaunt it!

What were your "go-to" outfits while you were trying to lose your baby weight?
