The reality star has gone under the knife

Lauren Goodger has opened up about having a boob job just after Christmas.

The ex-TOWIE star, 27, went from a 34D to a 34E because she felt her chest had lost volume on top after putting her body through years of yo-yo dieting and exercising.

‘I’m a curvy girl – I’ve got a big bum, I’ve always had big boobs, and I felt like I’d lost the top bit, which I was used to having,’ says Lauren.

‘I went on holiday and wore a bikini in Antigua and I just felt like I needed to fill out the top of my boobs.’

Despite the £6,000 op, Lauren – who split from boyfriend Jake McLean at the end of last year – admits that she doesn’t feel much different with her enhanced chest.

She reckons they look natural and similar to her old bust, but is happy that there’s no longer anything ‘flopping down’.

‘I think they’re in proportion with my shape, where my shoulders are, where my hips are. I didn’t want them to look fake, I’m not a fan of that,’ says Lauren.

‘It was just something for my confidence and to fill out what I had already. You know that stuck-on look? They’re not like that at all.’
