weight loss and breast/shoe size

I've heard that people have lost breast size and shoe size as they have lost weight. Anyone experienced this?

I haven't lost a shoe size at all (still a long 9.5!!!) but my breasts went from a 38DD to a 34 D/36 C after losing 40 lbs.

Big difference!!!!!! I'm kind of sad to see the girls go :)

Lost shoe/breast size

Yep, it happens. I lost a shoe size, even with a pregnancy in the middle of the majority of my weight loss. It was over a hundred pounds though, so I'm guessing you need to be dropping more than the usual 30-50 pound range to see movement on shoe size. The breasts went down a cup and four inches. Fortunately, not a lot of sag!

I've dropped about 40lbs, 3 dress sizes. Went from a 36DD to a 36D. I' not complaining about that- fine by me, I just don't want to go below a C cup. However, some of my shoes are a little too big now, and that does piss me off as I'm an absolutel shoe fiend...

35 pounds for me was more than a full cup size. Also, I actually had to get a new helmet for horseback riding because the old one got too big... weird, huh? Didn't know I had a fat head...

I'm the original poster. thanks for the info! I am in a 46DDD and am praying these girls go down a bit because bra shopping sucks! I also have big feet and am hoping to drop a size there as well-so this is all very encouraging. To the poster who lost 100 lbs....HOW?! My goal is over 100 lbs, so I would love to hear from ya!

Lost 130 so far

Let me start by saying that I distinctly remember how daunting it felt to have a goal for weight loss that was in the triple digit range. The way I lost 130 pounds was simple, yet the simplest things aren't always the easiest. Here's what worked for me:

1) An hour of cardio a day on average-
Try lots of different things! Don't let yourself fall into a rut with it.

2) Weight train three days a week.
During maintainence, I have found it necessary to keep that to at least twice weekly.

3) Avoid foods that are white or contain white ingredients (flour, sugar, potatoes, white rice).

4) 3-5 veggies and 2-4 fruits a day.
The more veggie, the better!

5) If you hit a plateau, try something new!

Hope this is helpful!

Hope that helps!

orignal poster here again- Thanks so much for the great advice. it does seem daunting right now how much weight I have to loose-especially on 'bad' days emotionally, physically taxing days or days when it seems the scale is SO high. But, thanks for your advice and I am going to try my hardest!!!

My chest size did go down. When I was 220, I wore a 38 large c or D. Now at 163 I wear a 36B and that might be a little too big.
