's curves may be one of the things she's known for, now that she's a mega star, but it wasn't always the case. The Elle
cover girl reveals she used to be teased for her voluptuous shape!
When she was younger, Katy says she didn't know how to deal with her newfound womanly body. In an attempt to make herself look more waifish, she wore minimizer bra with thick straps, but her strategy backfired. She says: I was shaped like a square at one time. I was! I’m generally around 130 pounds, which is totally fine for me. But when I was a kid, I was the same height and weighed more like 145. And I had enormous boobs that I didn’t know what to do with, so I wore minimizers, which were not cute. Those thick-ass straps! I got made fun of for the over-the-shoulder boulder holder…and all I wanted was to look like Kate Moss. Little did I know…that these things would come in handy someday.
Well, Katy has clearly used her bodacious bod to her advantage! Here's a lesson to teen girls everywhere: Don't try to hide your natural shape, embrace it!
