London: Alexandra Burke is adamant she would never resort to surgery to enlarge her assets.

The Hallelujah hitmaker admits she battled with body image issues when she was younger but she`s grown in confidence after learning how to dress to accentuate her curves.

The singer refuses to go under the knife to enhance her chest, insisting a good padded bra gives her all the boost she needs.

"I never used to be comfortable in my own skin... I have long feet and a short body. But I appreciate now that I``m smaller on the top... That``s why I wear padded bras!” the Daily Star quoted her as saying.

"I would never have plastic surgery. Why ruin what you``ve been given? You don``t need Botox and everything. Everyone is individual; there is no one out there the same. Why change that uniqueness about you?

"I did a photoshoot once where they airbrushed my thighs to make them look stick thin and I was like, `Give me my thighs and my bum back because that`s what I have!` I`ve just been signed to a model agency, and if me and my 5`3" self can do that, anyone can," she said.
