Ariel Winter is only 17 years old, but her 32F bra size was taking over her life. During her candid interview with Glamour.com, she revealed that she underwent breast reduction surgery in June and now has a more comfortable size 34D breast size.
That’s pretty much all I was known for and that upset me. It made me feel really uncomfortable, because as women in the industry, we are totally oversexualized and treated like objects. Every article that has to do with me on a red carpet had to do with ‘Ariel Winter’s Crazy Cleavage!’ or ‘Ariel Winter Shows Huge Boobs at an Event!’
That’s all people would recognize me by—not, ‘Oh, she does great work on Modern Family.’
Winter says she weighed the pros and cons of undergoing the surgery for a long time, but she decided to go through with the procedure after trying on swimsuits. She says she went to a bathing suit store with her cousin and found it impossible to find a fitting swimsuit, upsetting her.
While Winter thought long and hard about the surgery including the pros and cons, she received an extra push while trying on swimsuits.
I just kept saying, ‘What am I going to wear? There’s nothing for me to wear at the beach, at the pool.’ I can’t go to a party with my friends and wear the same thing as them. I have to be completely covered up otherwise I’ll look a certain way that I’m not intending to look.
So far, Ariel seems pleased with the results of the surgery, and looks gorgeous as usual.
It’s amazing to finally feel right. This is how I was supposed to be.
