January Jones Fat Suit

Careful, ‘Mad Men’ fans — Spoiler alert ahead!

Mad Men fans were dying to know how the show would handle January Jonespregnancy while filming, and on the latest episode they got to see her weight gain as part of a dramatic story line.

To hide January’s real-life pregnancy, she dons a fat suit and uses makeup tricks that were used on Elizabeth Moss during her season 1 pregnancy on the show. The show also uses clever camera angles and a body double during a bath scene for the right effect.

The episode focuses on her character Betty’s weight gain, which was revealed to be a result of a tumor on her thyroid. Betty, always known for her good looks, must deal with her significant weight gain and the fear of leaving her children without a mother.

But once the tumor is benign, she’s back to her sharp-tongued self.
