Even with enviable curves, Jessica Simpson hasn't always embraced her figure!
In fact, the former pop star had once planned to make some changes in the way of a breast reduction!

Dishing on her reasoning to Women's Health for her sexy September issue, she spilled:
"My boobs just have their own life, they have a way of making themselves present… I thought I was going to get a breast reduction."
You might remember the 36-year-old previously shared in an interview years ago that she wished she had smaller boobs and a bigger butt.
As you can probably tell, Jess decided against the surgery — and her hubby, Eric Johnson, couldn't be happier that she did!
The momma of two confessed:
"But after having kids, I look at myself and I'm like, you know what, my boobs are actually really big, but I like how they are. They're an asset, and Eric loves them still."
best breast kind of assets, don't you think?? LOLz!
Anyway, the fashion mogul also shared her annoyances with being in the public eye:
"Media scrutiny sucks. I can't sit here and say I don't notice it. I will never understand why people take someone down for what you look like. If I had a character flaw, take me down. But a body flaw? That's not important."
But she's found working out helps her emotionally:
"I give myself so many excuses not to get on the treadmill, to not do that lunge. Workouts are an emotional experience. I exercise to clear my head. It makes me stronger on every level."
The fierce starlet even shared her favorite body part, and the answer is actually pretty surprising:
"I'm hard on myself, I believe everything is a work in progress. But that's okay. I do love my legs, but my favorite physical attribute is my nose, because it's not perfect. But recently, since I've worked out so hard, I'm also loving my stomach—knowing I grew babies in it, and then having to go through a transformation and just owning it."
Yass!! Love yourself, girl!
Jessica didn't just talk about self-love though, as she also shared an empowering message for women everywhere:
"It's interesting because I feel like all women are very jealous of each other, but they are also supportive of each other. If we can all own what we love about ourselves, we won't have to have the jealous part."
