Model has breast reduction to fit into bridal gown
Plus size model Ashley Alexiss has been forced to have a breast reduction – because her 36G boobs were too big for her wedding dress.
The 27-year-old, dubbed the new Ashley Graham, also suffered years of back pain which was caused by her enhanced chest.
The model, who is 5ft 4in and a UK size 16 (US size 12), says things came to a head when her whopping boobs burst out of her bridal gown.
Alexiss underwent seven-hour surgery to remove four pounds of tissue from her breasts, which are now a more manageable 36DD.
"Over the course of the last year, maybe longer, I've contemplated a breast reduction," said the Boston-based model.
"As I'm getting older, I'm noticing the toll it's taking on my back and is actually causing physical issues with my trap muscles, shoulder grooving, and my posture. Not to mention I feel it's affecting my ability to truly do my job because my back would literally burn from standing too long — and come on, I'm only 27," she added.
"That's not OK to me."
