The Modern Family star underwent surgery last year to take her breasts from a 10F cup (in Australia bra sizing) down to a 12D.
In a recent essay for TIME magazine, she explained having large breasts on a small frame presented physical challenges, including neck pain and not being able to find clothes that fit, and significantly affected her state of mind. The constant scrutiny from the public only added to her unhappiness.
“I was uncomfortable and unhappy. I chose surgery because of how I felt, not because of what anyone else thought,” she wrote.
However, Winter’s estranged mother isn’t quite so positive about the 18-year-old’s decision. Crystal Workman, who hasn’t spoken to her daughter in more than three years, has weighed in on the subject in an interview with Inside Edition.
