Chrissy Teigen is well known for being up-front and honest. Her bio on Twitter hysterically reads, “currently sleeping with People’s sexiest man alive.”
Now, she’s getting real about boob jobs and struggling with her body image after having kids.
In a recent interview with Glamour UK, Chrissy held nothing back.
About 15-years-ago, Chrissy got a boob job, but she’s kind of regretting it lately and will probably get them removed soon. ““Yeah, I did my boobs when I was about 20 years old,” Chrissy said.
“It was more for a swimsuit thing. I thought if I’m going to be posing, laid on my back, I want them to be perky!”

“But then you have babies and they fill up with milk and deflate and now I am screwed.”
“…I want them out now. If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift. I think you’re supposed to replace [implants] every ten years.”
“But when you have kids you think about [the risks] of surgery and I think, ‘This is not the way I want to die, in boob surgery.’”
So why is Chrissy coming out about the work she had done? She says it’s because she wants to call out beauty standards that are anything but realistic.
“You can’t set these expectations for people that everything is perfect.”
“Everyone filters their sh*t, edits or Facetunes so you forget what normal faces or bodies look like.”

“It’s not fair and it makes you jealous of other people’s bodies. It’s lying to people by omission.”
Chrissy then went on to say in her interview that she is definitely struggling with her own body, especially after having kids.
“I do look at [my body] in the shower and think, ‘Arghhh, these kids’. But I don’t take the aesthetics so seriously now.”
“It’s very fulfilling not having that pressure of putting on a swimsuit and looking good for a magazine while running around a beach, which I did when I was modeling.”
“I don’t feel like my body is where I’m going to be sh*tty to myself, either. I’m already thinking enough things I am mad at myself about, I can’t add my body into it.”
