    forgiven for letting herself go a bit

    From Still a Pretty Woman: Julia Roberts stunning at 40 as she frolics in a bikini | Mail Online

    After turning 40 and giving birth to her third child last year, Julia Roberts could be forgiven for letting herself go a bit.

    In the sentence above, what "go a bit" mean?

    The expression is; "To let one's self go a bit." it means to not take care of one's physical appearance and/or condition.
