While the 'Real Housewives of New York City' are famous for protecting their assets, Jill Zarin is happy to part with some of hers. The red-headed Bravo network star opted for surgery to reduce her 32G-cup chest to a 34DD, and she's more than happy to talk about it. Zarin told Life & Style magazine that she wants to discuss her choice openly, to "show women there is no shame in wanting to look and feel your best as long as it's done safely."

On her decision: "Time and gravity had taken their toll, and I developed health problems, which limited my physical activity over the years. Although they were fabulous assets until my mid-30s, they became a problem as time went on. To be honest, it had become more difficult to wear clothes. I was limited to certain styles and cuts. I always had to wear what felt like a harness under beautiful clothes, and anything strapless, halter, low-back or backless was mostly off-limits. "
