Even Victoria’s Secret models have their insecurities, and Gisele Bündchen (who was known as ‘the boobs from Brazil’ when she shot to fame in the ‘90s) admitted that she dealt with one of hers with breast augmentation. But she also admitted quite candidly that, immediately after the procedure, she had regrets.

According to her new memoir, Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life, her first thought when she woke up was, “‘What have I done?’ I felt like I was living in a body I didn’t recognize. For the first year I wore [baggy] clothes because I felt uncomfortable.”

Bündchen also explained why she underwent the procedure in the first place in an interview with People. After giving birth to her two sons and breastfeeding both of them for 18 months each, she noticed her breasts were smaller and uneven. No doubt, this is an issue shared by many breastfeeding mothers — not just ones on the cover of Vogue.

“I felt very vulnerable, because I can work out, I can eat healthy, but I can’t change the fact that both of my kids enjoyed the left boob more than the right,” she told the magazine. “All I wanted was for them to be even and for people to stop commenting on it.” And being under constant scrutiny due to the nature of her career couldn’t have been easy.

Although she didn’t state in the interview or in her memoir whether she had the implants removed, she did tell People that super sweet words from her husband, Tom Brady, helped her feel good about her body again. A supportive partner is always something we can get behind.

“He just said, ‘I love you no matter what’ and that I looked beautiful,” she said. “This was definitely another lesson: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. But I wish I would have learned that a different way.”
