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?

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

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…

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.

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.
