Sofia Vergara's Bra Size: Actress Tells Vogue Her Breasts Are Real

Sofia Vergara is known for her curves, and though it's her comedic timing that has made her a star on ABC's "Modern Family," she's probably quite happy she didn't listen to a former publicist who suggested she get a breast reduction.

The Colombian-born actress opens up to Vogue for the magazine's annual Shape issue, and reveals that while curves might be coveted, her assets make it slightly harder to get red-carpet ready.

"I mean, a normal girl will just put the dress on and leave. I need them to be like an armory. My dresses are like a work of art inside because, you know, I am 40 years old, I had a baby, and I am a 32F boob." she explained to Vogue, adding that she hasn't had any help from surgeons wielding silicone or saline.

"And they are real still. When they are fake, you take the bra off and they are still there, perfect! Me—no, so I have to bring them up! I have to build the dresses up to here so that the bras—ach, it’s a whole, der—ugh—tchah!” she told the magazine, expressing her exasperation.

It's not the first time Vergara has discussed her simultaneous appreciation and frustration with her breasts. In 2010, she told Self magazine:

When I was 13, I got these ridiculous boobs. I wanted surgery. I told my mom, 'As soon as I'm older, please take these boobs away.' She said, 'Sofía, shut up. When you're 18, it will be different.' I was like, 'Why would I want these huge tits? I'm a 34DD.' It's hard to dress. No matter what I wear, I look like a stripper. That said, I'm grateful I have them, and honestly, they've helped me a lot in my career. And I've always felt sexy.

In the years since that interview, the star has apparently gone up a cup size, no doubt making it slightly more difficult to find the right clothes, but somehow we don't think it's going to hinder her career in the least.
