Why Jessica Simpson Decided Not to Get a Breast Reduction



With her platinum hair and sexy curves,Jessica Simpson is known for being a blonde bombshell…but there was one thing about her body that she thought wasalmost too sexy: her boobs!

The mother-of-two covers the September issue of Women’s Health magazine, opening up to the publication about her ever-changing body and the difficulties of dealing with that in the public eye.

«My boobs just have their own life, they have a way of making themselves present,» she explained. «I thought I was going to get a breast reduction.»

However, she ended up not going through with the process, and her hubby Eric Johnson is happy about that!

«After having kids, I look at myself and I’m like, you know what, my boobs are actually really big, but I like how they are,» she said. «They’re an asset, and Eric loves them still.»


Simpson also discussed her weight fluctuations, which is hard for anyone, but dealing with that as a celebrity takes it to a different level of difficult.

«Media scrutiny sucks,» she told the publication, honestly. «I can’t sit here and say I don’t notice it. I will never understand why people take someone down for what you look like. If I had a character flaw, take me down. But a body flaw? That’s not important.»

However, Simpson now uses exercise as a means of drowning out the negative noise.

«I give myself so many excuses not to get on the treadmill, to not do that lunge,» she admitted. «Workouts are an emotional experience. I exercise to clear my head. It makes me stronger on every level.»


After working hard and feeling good, she now looks at herself in a new light and can appreciate different body parts.

«I’m hard on myself, I believe everything is a work in progress. But that’s okay. I do love my legs, but my favorite physical attribute is my nose, because it’s not perfect,» she explained before adding, «But recently, since I’ve worked out so hard, I’m also loving my stomach—knowing I grew babies in it, and then having to go through a transformation and just owning it.»

In fact, that’s what helped motivate her and thus empower other women to do the same.

«It’s interesting because I feel like all women are very jealous of each other, but they are also supportive of each other,» she pointed out out. «If we can all own what we love about ourselves, we won’t have to have the jealous part.»
