For a while, Simone Biles enjoyed her latest fashion statement, a chest piercing which she flaunted on social media. However, she recently opened up that she suffered a chest piercing rejection.


Simon Biles has had some fashion moments. One of which was her sternum piercing which she debuted earlier in the year. On Instagram, Biles, who is the world's most decorated gymnast, flaunted her piercing in many snapshots to the delight of fans.

However, her recent post on Instagram had a fan asking why she took out the chest adornment. In her reply, Biles revealed that she suffered chest piercing rejection which occurs when your skin feels like there is a foreign object stuck in it and is trying to push it out.

In February, Biles, 23, debuted her sternum piercing as she rocked a black plunging dress that teased her cleavage and gave followers a clear view of the new fashion item.

In her caption, the young adult let fans know that she was unbothered. Stars like Gabi Butler and Biles' ex-boyfriend, Stacey Ervin Jr., gave their approval and admired her in the comments.
