'All those years I denied it - stupid. A sign of insecurity. Just celebrate what you’ve got'
Victoria Beckham has expressed regret over having a boob job at the start of her career.
The 42-year-old designer maintained for years that she hadn’t been under the knife, but now says she was ‘stupid’ for trying to fool people.
In a resurfaced letter written to her younger self in Vogue‘s October issue, Victoria advises: ‘Learn to embrace your imperfections. That is what I want to tell you. Let your skin breathe – wear less make-up (and don’t ever let that make-up artist shave your eyebrows! The effects will last forever).
‘I should probably say, don’t mess with your boobs.
‘All those years I denied it – stupid. A sign of insecurity. Just celebrate what you’ve got.’
This is the first time Victoria’s explicitly admitted to going up a few cup sizes.
The first time she gave us a hint was in a 2011 interview with Vogue, when she said: ‘No torpedo bazookas, either. Gone,’ before swiftly changing the subject.
And in 2014, Allure showed her a photo of her with slightly more perky assets, to which she responded: ‘I don’t have them any more. I think I may have purchased them.’
In her recent letter, she also spoke about her past fashion and beauty choices, continuing: ‘You are going to have so much fun with your clothes – PVC catsuits; chokers that say absurd things; weird spiky blonde hair.

‘You will always be addicted to Elnett hairspray but you will tone it down. Less of the: “Hello! I just got stuck in a wind tunnel,” please.’
LOLz. Oh, Posh, we wouldn’t have had you any other way.
