Ariel Winter: Getting a breast reduction was the 'greatest decision'

Ariel Winter says it was the "greatest decision" she's ever made to have breast reduction surgery.

The 'Modern Family' star insists she "finally feels right" since having the procedure done and now loves going shopping with her friends.

She explained to "It was the biggest, greatest decision I ever made. After the surgery I went shopping and I was so happy because I remember that before I got the surgery I would go in fitting rooms with my friends and we'd all try on bathing suits or T-shirts or tank tops and I could never wear any of it.

"I would sit in the dressing room and I would cry because nothing looked good on me. It looked ridiculous on me! I never felt right. I finally feel right."

Meanwhile, the 18-year-old actress previously revealed she was incredibly "unhappy" with her former body.

She explained: "People may find it hard to believe, but when I got my breast-reduction surgery last year, it wasn't because of the mean comments online.

"It wasn't because I didn't like how I looked. Having so much weight on my frame was affecting me psychologically. I was uncomfortable and unhappy. I chose surgery because of how I felt, not because of what anyone else thought.

"Afterwards, I automatically felt so much happier and just better physically. My back and shoulders didn't hurt any more!"
