Sofia Vergara Is Always In Search of the 'Perfect Bra'

Sofia Vergara embraces her sexy curves, but that doesn’t mean they don’t cause problems sometimes. “I’m always in search of the perfect bra,” she laments in the September issue of Redbook. “I’ll find one, wear it for a long time, and they’ll discontinue it. It’s the story of my life!”

Luckily, the rest of Vergara’s life is somewhat charmed. A native of Colombia, she’s now a megastar thanks to Modern Family, and recently inked a deal with CoverGirl cosmetics. She landed a spot on PEOPLE’s “Most Beautiful” list, too. “It’s fantastic, because I’m almost 40 years old and they still put me on these lists of beautiful women,” she says. “How can I even be in a list with girls who are 15 years younger than me? My son, Manolo, laughs at that.”

Despite that, Vergara, who also stars in this summer’s Smurfs movie, is embracing her new role as a style and beauty icon. The actress rarely leaves home in flats, preferring heels — “It’s like a little immediate plastic surgery; immediate liposuction,” she says — and lives for big bold earrings since they “distract from any imperfections.”

As if she has any! “I’ve had these ridiculously huge boobs since I was super young. Like, 13,” she shares. “I was really skinny at the time, so it was weird to have those boobs and be skinny. It was hideous. Then after I had my kid, I got hips and everything started to come together.” Read more with Vergara in the September issue of Redbook and at

Does this dummie ever stop talking about her ti**s? At least, talk about breast cancer awareness or so if you can’t keep yourself from talking about chests. She is busy catering to male b**b lovers, and that’s it for her – what a “noble” goal. Why do people like her get interviewed at all?

lola on

i think she is awesome and her accent is the best.. well done sofia!

Rachel on

The reason she talks about her boobs all the time is because when she is interviewed that is the question she gets asked a lot. If people how interview her would stop asking about her boobs then maybe she wouldn’t talk about them so much.

I think this is her interview “persona.” It’s a way of keeping the public @ arm’s length, yet still giving them a little of what they want: A Colombian bimbo with a silly accent. I highly doubt she is as silly or as self-absorbed as these articles make her out to be.

Side note: Photoshop much? At least give her MORE of her real body! We all know she’s not a stick figure…

Me on

I don’t find her self-absorbed at all. As a woman who’s had big boobs since she was 12, I totally understand the need for the perfect bra. In a land of Hollywood where most women are stick skinny and have fake boobs that stand up by themselves, it is so refreshing to hear from a woman with a real body. I’d rather hear from her about her boobs than one more celebrity and all the work they’re doing to save the world.

Because she has great breasts she should talk about breast cancer? That’s a bit silly, c’mon.

Fan#1 on

OK, Sofia, we get it. Your publicity agent has People in its back pocket. But come on, there is an inane story on this woman every day. Once a week is plenty sufficient.

Diana Fetterman on

She acts like she is the only one with breasts. I have 34DD’s but I don’t talk about them as if I am the only one. Talk about something meaningful like breast cancer. She is so shallow. I guess she only gets her acting jobs because of her breasts.

When she first started getting attention, I loved the way she talked about enjoying her curves & being proud of them. Now, I’m so over it, enough is enough. Yes, you have a great rack, we know that, men love it, life is great. But there’s more to life than focussing on your breasts, big or small. Be thankful, and move on. She doesn’t need to answer every question about her boobs during an interview, it takes the focus away from her real talents as an actress, and reduces her to just another set of boobs. Great boobs, yes, but you’re more than those assets. At 60 is she going to spend her time telling us about how they’ve now dropped to her knees? Sometimes less is more.

MissMel on

@Diana Fetterman: I think you are reading WAY too much into this. First of all, this is just a small snipet of an interview. You don’t even know what they asked her to get that answer. Maybe it was about fashion challenges she faces as a curvy woman or something to that effect. Also,I don’t think she said anything that implies she thinks she is the only one with large breasts. She was just speaking for HER experiences. If she had generalized and claimed all women with large breasts feel a certain way you would probably be annoyed with her for that!

I see her all the time shopping in century city. Last week we saw her at the lingerie shop and they were special ordering a bra in her size. hilarious to see this article.

Jumbybird on

I’m willing and able to support her 24/7 in her search for the perfect bra…

Mara on

She is such a liar claiming that she has never had any surgery. I’ve seen some before pictures of her and she is not naturally busty and has also had a nosejob. What a fake!

Cristal on

I wish my cans were all I had to worry about. What a self absorbed biotch she is!

Allie on

Sounds like we have some jealous people with small boobs reading this article! Sofia has been an actress for a LONG time! If she talks about her boobs its because people ask her about them. I used to watch her interviews on spanish TV and they weren’t about her breasts! So obviously america wants to hear about them!

Lala on

Wow, I guess the Itty Bitty Ti**y Committee is in the house. I have natural big breasts and I know exactly what she is talking about. And why does she need to talk about breast cancer? Because she has big breasts? In what world does that make sense? Speaking of cancer, she talked about having Thyroid Cancer in the last Parade mag… perhaps that will satisfy those of you who want her to talk about cancer.

Valerie on

You’ve got boobs, that’s nice. Anything else to talk about? No? Oh wait she does.. Bragging about how beautiful she is. Thanks for sharing.

Jacqueline on

I also remember her from Spanish television. Her body seems more of an hourglass now whereas back then she was more top heavy and no butt kind of like an apple shape. All of a sudden she has an butt and an hourglass shape. Sounds like liposuction and fat injections in the butt to me. Her accent is annoying though. Really? It seems so exaggerated.

Linda on

Sophia needs to check out I am rather well endowed as well and have found the perfect bras in amazing styles and colours at La Vie En Rose. They might even ship to the US.

Crystal on

@ Me – Sofia has had breast implants, her nose is fake, and she’s had liposuction. Nothing real about her. All fake!
