In Touch: Jessica Simpson might have a boob reduction before her wedding


For whatever reason, Jessica Simpson continues to make headlines for her upcoming wedding even though the date is still very much in question. In Touch recently published a story that Jessica was reportedly considering pushing back her wedding date because’s been gaining weight despite her adherence to the Tracy Anderson Method. Now, In Touch has added to the story with details that Jessica is so desperate to look thinner that she’s considering “drastic action,” i.e., smaller boobs:

Most women would kill for killer cleavage. But not Jessica Simpson. The singer is so distraught over her fuller-than-ever figure, she’s telling friends that she’s going under the knife. “She thinks that if she downsizes her breasts, she will look smaller,” a friend of Jessica’s tells In Touch.

The only question in Jessica’s mind, says the friend, is when. “She hasn’t decided if she’ll get it done before the wedding,” says the pal. “She wants to, but she fears being laid up for a week or more so close to the date.”

As In Touch has reported, Jessica and fiancé Eric Johnson, 32, had asked friends and family to reserve November 11, but she’s reconsidering. “She’s in such limbo about what to do,” says the friend of Jessica, who another insider tells In Touch is terrified of being a “plus-size bride” (even though she’s not really even plus-size!). Says the insider: “Jessica wants to waltz down the aisle — not waddle.”

However, despite attempts to slim down, she’s heavier than ever. “Jessica used to never be able to resist looking in mirrors, but now she avoids them like the plague,” says the insider, who puts her current weight at the “wrong side of 140 pounds.”

Even a pre-wedding escape to Mexico (on August 25) did nothing to boost her spirits. Jessica, 31, who packed flowing caftans in place of sexy bikinis, “is at her wit’s end,” says the insider. “If the weight doesn’t come off soon, she might either call off her wedding or get surgery. She’s that desperate.” Predicts the friend, “If she does postpone, breast reduction is on her to-do list.”

[From In Touch, print edition, September 12, 2011]

Okay, I can sort of identify with Jessica here because not only do boobs physically add to a woman’s weight, but (if they’re big enough) they can sometimes also require going up a size or two on a dress, which is frustrating when it happens to say the very least. Still, Jessica can obviously afford professional alterations that would negate such a consideration. Otherwise, I don’t know what to think about this story because I cannot imagine why Jessica would voluntarily downsize two of her only claims to fame. Other than that, she carries around very large purses and claims to be a fashionista, and the world inexplicably indulges this latter facade in spades.

Also, boob reductions aren’t necessarily a permanent thing either — they can actually “grow” back (in rare cases) after a few years to their previous size. Creepy, right? Sort of like a Hydra monster.

    She should ask for a brain enlargement too, as long as she’s going under the knife.

  2. Sara says:

    Low carb Jessica. Lean proteins and veggies, low glycemic fruits and carbs combined with exercise. I promise the weight will fall off. Oh and lay off the alcohol unless it is a few light beers now and then.

  3. Liz says:

    Its true that the healthiest to take care of this problem is consistent exercise and a healthier diet – though I know from experience that having large breasts (my size is a 34DD) makes me look larger or as if I were heavier than I actually am. (at 24 size jeans, small everything else.)

  4. Harley says:

    I hope she doesn’t do it. I was built like her-short and chesty- and I had a breast reduction in my 20′s and to this day it remains one of my biggest regrets. I can’t speak for anyone else who has done it, but for me it changed the way I viewedy body-and not in a good way.

    If she’s only doing It to lose weight, there are so many other – less invasive/ permanent- options available to her!!! And they don’t “grow back” -not unless you gain a ton of weight, in which case *everything* gets bigger accordingly, not just boobs.

  5. Cate says:

    I wouldn’t do that if I were her. Big boobs ALSO make your waist appear smaller in comparison. If she reduces her boobs, her waist will seem thicker. I’ve recently lost weight, and a lot of it has unfortunately come off my chest. And while my waist is also a bit smaller, I lament that I’m not looking as hourglass as I’d like.

  6. mimi says:

    It’s gotta be hard to watch your ex’s marry thin,fit women. When she’s ready, she’ll lose the weight – she’s done it before and she’s not that old.

  7. Kaboom says:

    That’s what is called divorcing yourself from your one redeeming quality, hon.

  8. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Jessica find yourself a dude who will love your full figured beautiful self or try and love yourself as you are, so you won’t be a needy insecure weight watcher – this will free up your brain for conversation.

  9. RocketMerry says:

    Well, boobs are mainly fat tissue; so if you are genetically predisposed to store your fat in that region, that’s where it’s (slowly) going to go even after the reduction.
    Same way with the opposite, if your breasts are small by genetic disposition it’s unlikely they’ll get much bigger (unless breast feeding and so on) unless you store the fat in other regions of your body first.
    So, I would advise Jessica NOT to do such a thing since her boobs aren’t that big and surgery can always have serious side consequences.

  10. Me says:

    I dont think this makes much sense. I would never do surgery over weight loss. Im not saying Jess needs to lose weight but if you want smaller boobies weight loss is pretty much the best way to do that. Being part of the spotlight, its not all that far fetched to think that she won’t shrink back down to teeny proportions with boobies following suit.

  11. Alexa says:

    Whatever happened to her “REAL BEAUTY” philosophy?! Remember she did that MTV special documentary about what real beauty means to people around the world??!! Apparently THAT was PURE B.S.!! (I know I shouldn’t be shocked, but to be such a BLATANT HYPOCRITE….UGH!!!!!!!!!)

  12. cmc says:

    I really don’t buy that she’d do this, honestly. She loves her boobs! And she seems to love her body, no matter how much magazines insist she doesn’t. She works out, and it looks to me like she’s more interested in maintaining her current size than losing weight (if she were trying to lose weight, I think she would have by now!)

  13. Laurie M. says:

    What’s the big deal…it’s not like this is her first “fairy tale” wedding anyway. She should show her fans (at least the 8 that are left) to be happy with who you are and surgery doesn’t cure poor body image/self esteem.

  14. Lenna says:

    I love her, I think she’s adorable and beautiful and perfect as is. SOmetimes her fashion choices are not wise, and as a result she looks boxy or squat..she’s really petite I believe so she should focus more on enlongating her look with clothes rather than resort to getting her “girls” down-sized.

  15. ashley says:

    This is such bullshit, if she were trying to lose the weight and at wit’s end, she’d go back to Mike Alexander and his training regime. She is gaining weight, but I just don’t think she cares anymore right now. If there is a delay on the wedding, it probably is in conjunction with her weight gain and is because she’s having second thoughts about her partner of choice, and she could be overwhelmed with her clothing line. I don’t think she’s as desperate to stay in the spotlight as people seem to think.

  16. Brittney says:

    I read an interview of hers in Seventeen at least ten years ago… back when she was at the start of the peak of her fame… and I’m very sure she mentioned getting a breast reduction at 17.

    I could relate to it because by 15, I had 34DDs (and still do), and desperately wanted the same thing. So she’s already done it once; it wouldn’t be smart to do it again, especially if it’s related to her overall weight. Doctors shouldn’t perform a reduction until they’re certain weight loss wouldn’t “fix” it.

  17. Joanna says:

    Personally, I don’t think she’s fat. She just doesn’t know how to dress for her body type.

  18. Goofpuff says:

    Ok since her boobs are fake, the only reduction she’s doing is removing the implants.

  19. Heatheradair says:

    laid up for a week? Oh dear — this is MAJOR surgery, she’d be out-of-commission for MUCH more than a week — and forget about squishing yourself into a wedding dress after a surgery like that — you still have the surgical drains for about a week afterward.

    once the bandages come off, you’re in a serious SUPPORT UNDERGARMENT to keep your newly reduced breasts from moving much until they’re healed — not to mention re-positioning your nipples means you risk losing all sensation in them — and, yes, if you’re a woman who’s rack fluctuates when you gain/lose weight, you can bet those will grow back over time.

    BUT, I know how she’s feeling.

    5 years ago I could lose 5 pounds in 5 days — my “diet coke diet,” as I referred to it. Heh. No, that was just 20-something metabolism. I hit 30 and all of my old “drop the pounds quick” tactics fail me — I put on weight MUCH more easily and it’s MUCH more difficult to work off.

    So, as a girl staring down a wedding myself, I can understand considering drastic measures……and I’m not even a celebrity who’s weight is much-criticized….

    But, agreed — step AWAY from the knife, dear.

  20. 4Real says:

    I would LOVE to have big tatas but if she suffers from back pain then I say go for it. She’s pretty and just needs to stop layering so much and stop drinking so much.

  21. serena says:

    I don’t think the story is true, Jessica has already lost weight and she’s pretty fine now.

  22. Kelly says:

    I’m surprised at all the negativity towards breast reductions; for a lot of women they are an extremely positive thing, and can enhance health and positive self-image. I should know – I had 38DDDs, and I have never regretted my breast reduction. Beforehand, I never ran anywhere, and was very limited in the clothes I could wear (clothes shopping meant lots of crying, and bra shopping was a complete disaster). My self-image was awful; I wore lots of baggy clothes to hide my body, and – whether consciously or unconsciously – people treat women with big breasts like stupid cows.

    After I got the reduction, I felt great – not at all bovine, and best of all, I could run, jump up and down, or dance without it hurting and without feeling self-conscious.

    So cut the girl a break – how she feels about her breasts is her business. However, having gone through the recovery, I would advise her to have it done at least 3 months before the wedding, as there is lots of pain, stitches, scars, etc., and it takes quite a while for your body to settle in.

  23. Yeah, a “boob reduction” is a very convenient excuse for a well timed trip to the doctor’s office. I’m sure Jess is playing to the sympathy of DDD+ women everywhere – bitch really wants lipo.

    And it’s totally her prerogative what she wants to do to her body. I just want to say, though, that she looks great and doesn’t need any surgery. Love yourself, Jess.

  24. Moneypenny says:

    @Kelly I don’t think anyone thinks negatively about breast reduction for the reasons you’ve mentioned. I have a few friends who had it done because they had back aches, big indentations in shoulders from bras, etc. Allegedly, Jessica isn’t doing it for those reasons, but to lose weight. That’s the issue people are having.

    If this story is true (and I highly doubt it is), I hope she considers the many non-surgical options for losing weight. I mean, if you work out all day and then drink back all those calories in alcohol, you won’t lose weight. Basic math.

  25. Bamafresh says:

    I had a reduction 6 years ago and it was the best decision for me. I was 34DDD and I’m only 4’10″. I developed scoliosis in my spine. But I have to warn, if you’re not good at managing your weight, you can really mess it up. I’ve managed to maintain my shape over the years and w/ pregnancy so I’m still roughly the same size as when I had the surgery. And I can run!

  26. JPX says:

    Wow, she continues to be the dumbest celebrity in Hollywood. Wow.

  27. MissVJJ says:

    I had one as well.. I was 4’11″ with 34F’s.. I feel so much better now that I can actually fit into bikini tops, dresses, halter tops, tube tops… pretty much anything. Before I couldnt wear ANYTHING unless it had the means of covering large bra straps. Oh and now I run and exercise and feel so much better. Although I have scarring, my breasts are proportional to my body and look so much better on me.

  28. the original bellaluna says:

    Okay, well as a natural DDD (ish), I “embrace” my boobs. Now, I’ve put up with the jokes (my dad used to say it was a good thing my feet were so big or I’d fall forward) and teases and taunts.

    I also tolerate paying a minimum of $40 for a semi-decent bra.

    Because surgery is SURGERY. And it hurts. And there’s a recovery time. And right now I don’t want that.

    So Jess – deal!

  29. Memphis says:

    There is no way Jessica wants to downsize her boobs. Hell she talks about them like they’re her best accessory. I can see it as a cover for other work being done, but I’m doubtful breast reduction is on her agenda.

  30. bagladey says:

    I’ve always thought that Jessica’s style would benefit from a breast reduction.

  31. Shannon says:

    @Kelly I don’t think anyone is against breast reductions in general. There are certainly some great reasons to get it done, whether it’s back pain, proportionality, being able to jog, or just feeling uncomfortable in one’s skin. But the proposed reason in this case seems like a drastic solution to a simple problem, and one that may not even work.

  32. Thea says:

    Boob reduction is the least of her worries. Atkins diet. I lost 80 lbs in three months and have kept it off for three years now. She needs a brain implant god love her.

  33. Denise says:

    I completely understand her situation because I am also going through this. My boobs are disproportionate to my size and I have to now go up a dress size or wear sports bras. I have severe shoulder pain and discomfort. I hope she makes the best decision, not the most expedient one; the wedding can wait.

  34. BeeCee says:

    I’m 5′ and before my reduction 7 years ago, I was a 34G. My doctor took about 3 lbs off of each side and took me down to a 34D.

    I didn’t do it to lose weight or to “look skinny”. I did it because as a smaller girl and having huge boobs, it was a huge blow to my self esteem during high school because I was picked on so much from having them. (Kids are mean jerky bullies, and I would hear them accusing me of stuffing my bra… I was really close to dropping out)

    If this is true, then Jessica is stupider than I thought if she thinks it’s a quick fix too lose weight. That’s dumb, it will sure as hell make her look proportional instead of top heavy but that’s not going to instantly make her a size 0. It’s just going to allow her to fit into her actual size better.

    I can tell you that they do (somewhat) grow back. I eat healthy and watch my weight but my boobs are gotten bigger again. I don’t have kids, and never been pregnant. I think it was just hormones…

    My scars are pretty much invisible which is fantastic but if I wear an itchy bra for too long my scars tend to get a little red and noticable.

  35. Reduced & Proud says:

    I used to weigh >320 lbs, lost 100lbs w/o surgery. My boobs did notgo down in size at all. It really interferred w/ working out so I had a breast reduction. I was a DD+ and went to a Full C. So happy with the surgery – I was able to work out & they weren’t cumbersome. I lost another 60lbs – and the f**kers finally shrank. Now I’m a Full B. I saw a plastic surgeon about excess skin removal (unfortunate reality of weight loss). Heactually recommended implants to make them poportionate. I laughed.

    The surgery is not painful for the most part bc it is fat,but you will typically have drains for several days & lifting anything more than 1/2 lb was forbidden. And lifting hands over head – foget about it.She won’t be able to tolerate anything but a sport bra for at least 6wks.

    And if she wants to have kids, chance she may not be able to breast feed.

    If she wants to do it bc her boobs cause strain/difficulty, this is not like getting a little botox before the wedding.

    I’m grateful I did it. Changed my life.

  36. Ashley says:

    I grew large boobs seemingly overnight when I was in middle school (36DD), and I hated them through my teens. I thought they made me look fat, and being young, I was uncomfortable with the sexuality they seemed to represent. When I was 15/16ish I got a consultation for a breast reduction, and the doctor (rightly) turned me down because I was so young, and my boobs weren’t causing me pain.

    I’m so glad I didn’t have the surgery. As I hit my late teens and early 20′s, I dropped my high school baby fat and my boobs settled down to a 34D. And now, I rather like them. They can still fluctuate up or down depending on weight gain/loss, but not that much in my case. So, even when I’m a size 2, I still have large knockers.

    And in a similar vein…I feel for some of the celebrity girls that are always accused of having a boob job when they insist they are natural. In college, girls and guys (but mostly girls) always asked me if I had implants. When I have a certain type of bra on, my boobs look just like high-profile, super round, bolted on fakies. However, if I wear a minimizer I can make them look much smaller. I really can’t understate how different a pair of boobs can look in varied bras and clothes, so sometimes using a photo comparison to determine enhancement just doesn’t work.

  37. GeekChic says:

    I went from a 34DDD to a manageable 34C, and I’m so glad I did. My boobs were just killing my back and shoulders, and I have them to thank for the bulging disk in my neck, as well. I can easily recommend the surgery to any woman suffering like I was. But, it is surgery, and not to be taken lightly. This isn’t just simple liposuction. The surgeon goes in and completely reworks your breast anatomy. The scars are extensive (they do fade, though) and the recovery is painful.

    All of this being said, I would never recommend anyone doing it for something as stupid as weight loss. Good grief Simpson, really?

  38. Kelly says:

    I don’t believe it’s vanity – she’s incredibly vain (well, no more than most stars, I guess) and I don’t think she’d downsize something she sees as an asset. Because – as other people have pointed out – there are scars, and I just can’t see her accepting that if it wasn’t for a good reason.

  39. amy garcia says:

    and i dont doubt for one second shes prettier than any of the women making mean comments on here. not to mention running a billion dollar buisness. jealousy is a bitch. as for everyone who bitches back and forth on here, misery loves company.

  40. beanie says:

    Hello Ladies! As a fellow petite, (4’11) and 34DD I can commiserate. Back pain has become the norm for me. My thoughts are this. If they were giving her issue, i.e. pain etc. she should have done it a while back. But to do to just appear to lose weight is no good. She is naturally curvy so she should just embrace it and be happy. She is a beautiful girl and yes she is top heavy, but she does not look fat to me in those photos at all.

  41. marybeth18 says:

    I think the problem is NOT her body, but her clothes- she doesn’t dress correctly for her body. She’s short and very curvy, and in the right silhouettes she would look great. She needs a good stylist, not a plastic surgeon!

  42. poodlemom says:

    Jessica should not do anything to her boobs right now. Don’t you loose inches after you breastfeed? maybe she should just get pregant already! After all…she had a big wedding to Nick Lachey! She and the fiancee should just elope!

  43. boobalicious says:

    @ Liz: girl! I am a close bra size 32 DD but usually wear XL blouses and size 12p jeans….it sucks, if it wasnt for my big boobs my body would look more propprtional. I have thouht about boob reduction but without money the only way to access such an operation would be for medical necesity.
    Mu hubs loves them thouh so of Eric has a serious case of boobalitis then he can live with it. At some point you learn to embrace them and secretly enjoy the stares and attention….lol…

  44. Callumna says:

    “YALE” sweatshirt. LOL. Right next to her bag with Louis Vouitton’s name splattered on it in the same kind of all caps block writing.

    After watching a few of her interviews I cannot believe there’s any way she knows Yale is not some kind of gray sweatshirt designer.

  45. the original bellaluna says:

    When I ran track in high school, I ran for “llbro.” See, my school team was “FALLBROOK.” But because my boobs were huge, my shirt said “llbro.”

    It was quite the talk at invitationals.

  46. JT says:

    “laid up for a week”? Seriously those morons at In Touch can’t even be bothered to do any research into the surgery that they say Jessica is supposedly getting? How about closer to 6 weeks plus many many more for the very serious scaring that she would get. Idiots. It goes without saying that they’ve clearly undermined themselves and any validity this article might have. And anyway, Jess is obviously losing weight, hence the inappropriate mini dress.

    She’s always had a love/hate relationship with her breats since becoming a pop star but I honestly can’t see her taking such a drastic step. She just needs to loose more weight.

  47. Ramona Q says:

    Maybe she hasn’t lost any weight because she’s not on a diet, and she likes the way she is!

  48. Kosmos says:

    I agree, smaller breasts would calm her heaviness down a bit, but so would losing the pounds off her body. The body would slim down a few sizes and so would the breasts. I would definitely try that before going under the knife, although I worked with a fitness instructor who had a reduction and while she still has nice size breasts, the heaviness is gone and she looks quite a bit better overall. Whether breasts are large or not, the body weight is what is really making the difference here. The eating/drinking has to stop.

  49. crtb says:

    She needs to learn to love herself just the way she is. She is NEVER going to be a size 0. Embrace the 140 pounds. She looks great!

  50. trolleydolly says:

    There’s feck all wrong with her knockers – it’s the dreadful clothes she wears that make her look busty and squat. She should know by now that she can’t wear polo necks or shift dresses. She needs a V neck.
    (I’m a 30GG so I know what I’m talking about!)

  51. metatrix says:

    I have 34DDs and I LOVE them.

    Sure, it’s inconvenient, and I get backaches, and finding clothes that fit is next to impossible, but screw it! I LOVE having big boobs. It is SO worth the trouble. Nothing beats having large, natural boobs! It’s awesome.
