Sofia Vergara Talks Dressing for Her Body Shape

sofia2 - Sofia Vergara Talks Dressing for Her Body Shape

On the importance of getting your clothes tailored when you have an hourglass body shape:

“The key for my body is tailoring. I spend more money on tweaking and fixing the clothes than the actual clothes. So I have to go to the tailor, and he would sew a seam in a little bit because my size is difficult. It’s not that it’s bad, I am not complaining—it’s just that once you know how to tweak it, you look like you are well dressed. For example, jeans that go all the way up here. So I tell the guy, OK, you know what needs to be done; I don’t even have to try them anymore. He knows to do it so when I sit the jean doesn’t go all the way down. It’s just learning what you have to do. Not for something simple like a T-shirt, but for a piece that I like, I always have to have it altered.

On her boobs:

“I mean, a normal girl will just put the dress on and leave. I need them to be like an armory. My dresses are like a work of art inside because, you know, I am 40 years old, I had a baby, and I am a 32F boob. And they are real still. When they are fake, you take the bra off and they are still there, perfect! Me—no, so I have to bring them up! I have to build the dresses up to here so that the bras—ach, it’s a whole, der—ugh—tchah!”

… says Sofia in Vogue Magazine.

    I love this womans accent, and she seems great. I guess it’s just my taste though because I don’t see her appealing facially or body wise. Her arms and legs seem to be a little too slim for her body type?

    • mary

      Lol really? i cringe watching modern family (I assume she exaggerates it on there) when she starts to wail in that horrible latin accent…lol…she is funny though and has a good body..she’s definitely grown on me but also dont find her face appealing

  • Avelyn

    “ach, it’s a whole, der—ugh—tchah!”

    anyone else tempted to put that into google translate and see what happens?

  • HB

    She’s right. I’ve been planning on finding a good tailor in my area because I have such broad shoulders compared to the rest of my body. It really makes a huge difference.

    And her figure is flawless in this photo. I always wonder how she has such straight arms.

    • Winnie

      I have similar looking arms. they’re usually the last place i gain weight and are pretty long and lean. i don’t work them out at all, and when i am forced to, i usually do bicep curls with 5 pound weights.

      • Vivi

        I’m sort of the opposite, I naturally have quite muscular arms, especially my biceps. I don’t lift weights at all and I still can pop my arm muscles and look crazy ripped (I dont do weights just because I don’t want them any more defined!). On one hand its kinda nice to be the designated “strong chick” in my family, but unless I’m going sleeveless my arms can just look fat which they’re actually not, just overly muscle-y. I actually gain most of my weight in my saddlebags, so i guess I’m like a pear shape with big arms or something 😛

        • HB

          I like Sofia’s arms, but I like strong arms too! Mine are pretty toned from boxing, but I find doing yoga has sort of lengthened and thinned them out.

      • HB

        Lucky you! I like my arms shapely but not too big, so I box for them. But I find that when I’m lifting heavier weights (10lbs and up) that it does better things for the rest of my body. My waist and abs and back and hips look tighter. Who knew??

  • D

    I think she is a cute girl, but does she talk about anything other then her breasts? I guess it makes sense though as she likely would be unknown/her claim to fame is her boobs.

    • alyssa

      Interviewers are incredibly unoriginal. They tend to ask mundane questions that their editors tell them to

      • HB

        It sounds more like they asked how she likes to dress herself.

  • Rosa

    I know people are going to be annoyed that she’s talking about her boobs again but I just love Sofia Vergara so much I don’t mind it. I don’t have big boobs myself but I think many girls can relate to her quote.
    I think Sofia’s stunning. Plus she’s hilarious-after watching her doing that CoverGirl commercial on Ellen she can’t do wrong in my eyes!

  • Jessica M

    I can totally relate. Love Sofia!

  • Winnie

    i agree with Sofia on tailoring and can relate to the boob thing as well. clothes just aren’t made to fit my body lol. i’m looking forward to the summer time and disposable income because i love the look of dress-shirts (like Oxfords) with a feminine silhouette on women, it’s it’s damn near impossible to find ones that accentuate my waist without smothering my chest

  • I don’t get the der-ugh-tcah :/

  • asja

    i love how honest she is and not ashamed to admit that she is not what society sees as perfect, she seems very nice. 🙂

  • Lauren

    She has big boobs? I had no idea

  • TonyFae

    Lol… I love her.

  • ebby

    i don’t think she’s lying about her breast size, but they just don’t look that big. they look like DDs at most.

    • Liz

      Actually, they look bigger than an F to me. Most women wear a 34 or 36 band size, which makes the cup sizes bigger as well. I wear a 32E, but if I wore a 36, would be only a C! People are usually surprised by my size, too.

      • Sidney

        yes, i wear a 32 C-D, and my boobs are actually rather small. Definitely not what you’d generally have in mind when speaking of D-cup breasts.

      • Agree, im a size 28 F and nobody believes me when they hear it. Women these days aren’t aware of the correct bra sizes. Everyone should go get measured so they find out their real size!

    • Aafje

      I’m DD and they definitely look bigger than mine

    • Batterfly

      A lot of people just don’t know how bra sizes work. Coupled with the fact that many stores don’t sell anything past DD and people tend to think it’s the biggest size possible.

      In reality, D cups are not big unless it’s on a large band.

  • Megan

    I make clothes and totally get this, it’s enough to make me wish women didn’t have boobs! Or hips, or asses… lol, I guess designers are onto something with most runway models.

    It’s also ridiculous how much better everyone looks when the clothes are individually fitted. But yeah, if you aren’t sew crafty yourself, the alterations easily can outprice the clothing 🙁

  • Junior

    Love her. Super sexy

  • Wowza

    She’s always been stunning .. As for the posters sayinghow she only talks about her boobs .. Well that’s what Hollywood did to her, when she was on latin american tv she didnt have to talk about her body i guess these interviewers dont know what to ask .. even so it’s not a problem(well to me) breasts are wonderful things they are

  • Faidy

    I love how honest she is. Nice photo.

  • mary

    shes grown on me 🙂

  • Acnaib

    I can totally relate to what she says about her boobs!! Because real boobs really need a good bra, so that it looks good and is all in shape!! Girls with bigger boobs really get that I think, because then you really see the problem and how really really important it is to have a very good bra!! It’s often my problem and I really sometimes wish I had smaller boobs that stand up like fake boobs… I think sometimes you also forget what a natural breast actually looks like and that it doesn’t stand up in front of you… I hope it’s not just me 🙂

  • Her figure is to die for, imo – but I can imagine the amount of work it takes to maintain and dress, especially as she is getting older. There needs to be a lot of scaffolding to keep everything in check and create seamless curves. And there is such a limited range of styles you can wear – that’s why you don’t see many models with this kind of figure, as eternally popular as it is, it is really limiting to dress.
    Anyway, Sofia is just such great fun – I love her!

  • Debbs

    Her body is incredible. Pretty face too.

  • angie

    I really, really like it when she says “cheeken” (chicken).

  • Ludivine

    Does anybody know her dress size? I personally think she is a size 6. But a size 6 and a cup size F seems almost impossible.
    Does anybody know if its possible to have size 6 in clothing and F in cup?

    • Mishael

      Why not?

    • Definitely, Im a 28 F and im 32 inches around the chest, that’s the measurement for 0-2 US size.

    • lillaliket

      It’s possible, but I think that is why she needs to get her clothes tailored – she has to buy bigger sizes because of her boobs and then get them taken in because the rest of her is so much smaller.

    • Amandazon

      It is absolutely possible. I’m 5’11, a size 6, and a 34F cup and my boobs are all natural. I’d rather they not be so large because they’re not proportionate with the rest of my body but it is what it is.

    • Batterfly

      It’s possible. You have to remember that the letter is only a relative size and it depends on the band. 36F is 3 cup sizes bigger than a 30F for example.

      30F means approximately 30″ ribcage and 37″ bust while 36F means 36″ ribcage and 43″ bust since an “F” represents a difference of 7″.

    • Hehe

      Very possible. I’m a size 4-6 with a 32ddd breast.

    • Kimberly

      Its totally possible.

    • Ludivine

      Wow thanks for all your input. i didn’t know there were so many women with such a small dress size and big boobs. You won the genetic lottery. haha.
      But I do think it is true not so many women have the combination of a small dress size+big breasts AND who are very tall as well. I haven’t seen women who are like 5 feet 10/ 1.80 com. Mostly the small size+big breasts happens to women who are short or medium heigt, not very tall like topmodels.

  • Nene

    Her body is so proportional even with the large boobs!
    No wonder hourglasses are highly regarded.
    Tailoring is the best and only option especially for hourglasses and pears.
    I can relate to her comment,sometimes finding skirts and pants that fit well is a struggle as the waists are always a few inches too big.So i go to the tailor to take them in here and there to get a good fit.

  • jessica_rabbit

    hot body! suprisingly for her age imo she looks better with no make up on!

  • veeeeev

    She’s HILARIOUS. I love watching her interacting with Ellen especially. But I completely agree with her, I don’t think it’s just for her body type, I think any clothes that are tailored perfectly for each individual body shape would make anyone look 10x better. I’m petite, but with a short torso which makes me a little curvier, especially since I’m on the chestier side too. If I could get all my clothes tailored to fit me perfectly, man, I’d look like a star LOL

  • kat

    she looks fantastic. my body inspiration for when i finally have this baby!

  • I savour, cause I discovered just what I was having a look for. You’ve ended my four day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day. Bye

  • Sal

    I really like reading through a post that will make people think.
    Also, thanks for allowing for me to comment!
