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

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.

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.

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