Ariel Winter: ‘There’s a confidence you find when you finally feel right in your body’

FFN_vcv_51888469 - Ariel Winter: 'There's a confidence you find when you finally feel right in your body'

On how her breast reduction surgery changed her life:

Being a 5-ft.-tall girl and having extremely large breasts is really ostracizing and excruciatingly painful. It was an instant weight lifted off my chest – both literally and figuratively. There’s a confidence you find when you finally feel right in your body.

On how she did not have big breasts for a long time until she hit 15:

And then overnight I did. But then they kept growing and growing and growing and it didn’t seem like they were going to stop.“I was 15 years old with [size] F. It’s like, “How do you navigate that?” It started to hurt so bad that I couldn’t take the pain.

… says 18 year-old Ariel.

her body is dope, the problem is styling half the time. She looks fat(boxy, for you butt-hurt folks out there) depending on how they dress her in modern family.

I know she is half Greek and I think this is a common problem for a lot of women who have descent from that region of the world. Curvy and short but not small framed/boned, so it’s hard to find things that fit and things that give a much heavier look. See Kourtney and Kim K (half Armenian) and Salma Hayek (half Lebanese) for more examples of what I’m talking about. I’m partially of this kind of background and definitely have this problem, it’s very annoying!

Kourtney and Salma are curvy and small boned imo.. Kim and Ariel I agree

I have a good friend of the family who had reduction surgery and it helped her out so much. Whatever makes you feel happiest is what you should do. Though I envy big b❆❆bs a little 🙂

Sorry for the spam, I’ve tried to post my comment but it gets under moderation. If I knew the limit word number, I would make my comments shorter.

My point is that I don’t like how the media has covered her story. Breast reductions are seemed as noble, healthy, while breast augmentations are seemed as vain. IMO, they’re a personal choice but shouldn’t be glorified and celebrated. Sends the wrong message.

I agree, to an extent, but to me it depends on the motive. Health vs vanity. But of course the lines blur plenty.

vanity is in the eye of the beholder.

Precisely why I said the lines blur plenty. Language is tricky- it means different things to different people. But I wouldn’t call eliminating back pain vanity, as mine has taken over my thoughts completely for days at a time. Of course there’s often a double motive, like here with Ariel. She mentions how hard it was to wear clothes that looked good. That’s vanity.

Well, I’m trying to think about it from several sides. And this one is a little off the wall, but I have scoliosis. It’s not highly visible unless you know what to look for (I see that my rib cage is uneven; other people don’t notice). However, it causes a lot of back pain, even with how much I workout to strengthen my core and back muscles. Back pain just blows. It’s constant. And I’m afraid of surgery. I’m afraid of screwing my body up and not being able to be active anymore. So on the one hand, surgery to… Read more »

She looks great! I like her character on modern family a lot 🙂

Is there a character on Modern Family that isn’t awesome? That show is so dope.

It really is! Even the characters I find sort of lame play so well with the others that the show would be incomplete without them.

She looks like a natural version of Kylie Jenner. Very pretty!

She is a very pretty girl & it always tickled me that in Modern Family she was supposed to be the smart & average looking one…as if oversize tops & glasses automatically make you homely/hideous or something lol.

B/c she got the reduction surgery @ this age, is it possible for her b❆❆bs to grow to a size F again & then she would have to get another reduction surgery? I mean I know she can afford it or w/e but I am curious + too lazy to Google lol.

As b❆❆bs are both breast tissue and fat it is possible that when she gains weight they’ll come back 😀 But they did take breast tissue out of there which I think can’t recover to the original size once you’re done with growing… When they do breast augmenration surgeries younger girls they somehow test in different ways is it possible that the girl’s chest is still growing, maybe they do with reducing Also.

It is possible for her b❆❆bs to still grow. It takes around five years on average for breasts to fully develop. For some it’s less and for some more. Especially if you’re a late bloomer it’s quite possible for your b❆❆bs to undergo changes unrelated to weight gain or loss even as late as your early twenties. Of course most develop earlier but it’s not uncommon that puberty plays a trick on you. For instance my b❆❆bs were set by her age but I suddenly grew an inch/2 cm the year I turned 18. (Which made all of my jeans… Read more »

“Overall she was surprised how overtly people commented and made jokes about something as private as her boobs. :/” yeah, why does our society make women’s body parts public business? as Agatha commented above, breast reduction isn’t something to celebrate…nor is breast growth, or anything to do with breasts at all for that matter. it is a person’s body, it is private, why does everyone feel the right to comment on every part of a woman’s body all the time? It bugs me that our bodies are treated like public when they are not and should not be. case in… Read more »

Perks of the plastic surgery, we are very lucky to be born in this age and country,and she was lucky to be able to afford it. Im happy shes happy, she looks like a confident young woman and i like her general style. Never heard of her before.

She’s 18, if she waited until 18 for the surgery she’s not under aged.

She just turned 18 yesterday. She had it at 17.

I don’t see a problem with her celebrating a reduction, I can imagine she feels liberated and this was a big deal for her, what’s not to celebrate there? I agree with you that her being sexualized for them is awful, but big b❆❆bs are also not everyone’s taste, I personally am not a fan of my D’s, I wish they were smaller for sure. My mom on top of her back problems has very large breasts (she’s an F), and is on disability. She cannot get a breast reduction covered unless she goes down to a size B, which… Read more »

Yes, for her it’s a reason for celebration! I agree. It’s the media I don’t agree with. They focussed on the wrong topic, IMO.
