“I saw a picture of them a couple of days ago from when I was 19, and my boobs were way bigger. They were a D, and now they’re a small C, because I lost weight. There was something so beautiful about the size of them. When I look back, I’m like, ‘Why did I always give myself such a hard time?’ Nobody gave me sh-t about it except me.’ But they do get in the way a lot. Like, I wear a really small, tight sports bra when I go running . . . because they want to smack my chin.”
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!”
Katy Perry is featured in Elle magazine this month, photoshopped on the cover and open about her weight:
On her much talked about figure: â€œI was shaped like a square at one time. I was! I’m generally around 130 pounds, which is totally fine for me. But when I was a kid, I was the same height and weighed more like 145. And I had enormous boobs that I didn’t know what to do with, so I wore minimizers, which were not cute. Those thick-ass straps! I got made fun of for the over-the-shoulder boulder holderâ€¦and all I wanted was to look like Kate Moss. Little did I knowâ€¦that these things would come in handy someday.â€
… says Katy (who is around 5’7” or 5’8” / 59 kg at 170-172 cm).
