Instead of going under the knife to enhance her chest, the 'X Factor' alum uses a good padded bra to give her all the boost she needs.
British singer Alexandra Burke refuses to go under the knife to enhance her chest, insisting a good padded bra gives her all the boost she needs. The "Hallelujah" hitmaker admits she battled with body image issues when she was younger but she's grown in confidence after learning how to dress to accentuate her curves.
And she is adamant she would never resort to surgery to enlarge her assets. She says, "I never used to be comfortable in my own skin... I have long feet and a short body. But I appreciate now that I'm smaller on the top... That's why I wear padded bras!"
"I would never have plastic surgery. Why ruin what you've been given? You don't need Botox and everything. Everyone is individual; there is no one out there the same. Why change that uniqueness about you?"
"I did a photoshoot once where they airbrushed my thighs to make them look stick thin and I was like, 'Give me my thighs and my bum back because that's what I have!' I've just been signed to a model agency, and if me and my 5' 3" self can do that, anyone can."
