Rachel Bloom Opens Up About Breast Reduction Surgery In a Before-and-After Instagram Post


Rachel Bloom just opened up about getting breast reduction surgery after experiencing “major physical discomfort” for some time. 

“I did it,” the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator and star said on Instagram on August 14, alongside her before photo from the hospital as well as a recovery image. Bloom explained that while she never “craved” a breast reduction, things changed after her first pregnancy and then breastfeeding.

“I mean, at times, my dd/ddd boobs (size dependent on time of month) were annoying and sweaty (and yes, heavy), but I was lucky to never really experience major physical discomfort from them,” she wrote. “But then, I got pregnant and grew very quickly from a dd/ddd to a size G. Then, after breastfeeding, their entire texture changed; they got super super soft, which is a thing that pregnancy/breastfeeding does that no one really tells you about. So at the end of it all it felt like I had a pair of big soft balls weighing down my chest. (Like post-shower balls. Really relaxed. You know).”

“I started to get underboob rashes, shoulder grooving (when your bra strap digs into your skin), neck issues and night sweats (I couldn’t fall asleep unless I had a pillow in BETWEEN my breasts),” Bloom continued, adding that she then met with three doctors over the course of a few months. “My request was to just go back my pre-pregnancy size (if not maybe a little bit smaller). I’m still healing so we’ll see what happens. But I already feel more comfortable and relieved.”

Rachel Bloom welcomed her daughter with husband Dan Gregor in April 2020. “Having a baby in the NICU during a pandemic while a dear friend was in the hospital 3,000 miles away made this by far the most emotionally intense week of mine and Gregor’s lives,” she wrote in her caption at the time. “As the lovely doctors and nurses helped my daughter get some fluid out of her lungs, we watched the maternity ward around us change hourly to prepare for the upcoming COVID storm.”

“The whole family is now home safe and I am just so grateful to all of our medical workers,” the new mom then added. “From those in our NICUS to those directly helping COVID patients like Adam, they are sacrificing so much to fight on the front lines of this war.”
