Gisele Bundchen Regrets How She Dealt With This Insecurity

Gisele Bundchen Has Huge Regrets Over How She Dealt With This Common Body Insecurity

She’s undoubtedly one of the most beautiful women in the world – but that doesn’t mean Gisele Bundchen is immune to feeling insecure about her body.

Speaking with People recently, the Victoria’s Secret model opened up about undergoing a secret breast augmentation after breastfeeding left her chest slightly lopsided. Gisele, who shares a son, 8-year-old Benjamin, and daughter, 5-year-old Vivian, with NRL quarterback Tom Brady, nursed each of her kids for 18 months at a time.

“I was always praised for my body, and I felt like people had expectations from me that I couldn’t deliver,” she explained. “I felt very vulnerable, because I can work out, I can eat healthy, but I can’t change the fact that both of my kids enjoyed the left boob more than the right. All I wanted was for them to be even and for people to stop commenting on it.”

But as soon as she went under the knife, she immediately regretted her decision – an admission she made in her memoir, Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life.

“When I woke up, I was like, ‘What have I done?’ I felt like I was living in a body I didn’t recognise,” she wrote, in an excerpt published by People. “For the first year I wore [baggy] clothes because I felt uncomfortable.”

It was only with the support of her husband, that she began to build her confidence up.

“He just said, ‘I love you no matter what,’ and that I looked beautiful,” she said. “This was definitely another lesson: what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. But I wish I would have learned that a different way.”
