Big on Top

Okay, I know i have heard there is no way to spot reduce but this has to be wrong, oh please God let it be wrong!

I have a size D cup and really wish they would just shrink. I hate my big D's :o( does anyone know what can be done besides getting breast reduction? I mean i dont want to be flat either but a size B would be nice.

Like you said, you can't spot reduce. I have a similar problem, having always been big on top. You can do chest exercises to firm up the muscle underneath, which might result in some reduction if the muscle is toned rather than fatty. This would be bench presses or push ups. I've lost about 10 lbs. and have not seen much change in my boobs (actually, they are different sizes and the smaller one got smaller, which REALLY sucks).

OP here

AAAAAAAAAAAa :o( this really blows since even if I do lose weight i cant get nice fitted tops because my boobs will be way out there and its just very uncomfortable for me. I guess I can try the bench presses and see if it helps out a bit. my friend had said when you loose weight your boobs will go down too, but i havent seen them go down at all. :o(

are you on the pill?

I have the opposite problem - I'm pretty flat - but when I went on Yasmin, my breasts filled out nicely. Maybe going off the pill or changing to a different hormone mix would help?

It actually depends on the person. Some do lose weight in the boobs others don't. My sister does but my friend who is a triple D doesn't. What she has done is lose most of her fat she is down to a normal BMI and has toned up a lot. Her boobs are still huge but because the muscle is toned and solid she is smaller through the bust and can wear nice clothes. How much weight have you lost and much do you still need to lose? You might find that when you get down to your goal they are smaller. So you want a B cup? I am a B cup and I wish my boobs were bigger, at least a C.

OP again

I'm on orthoevra, the patch. I've pretty much been big all my life. Well maybe not so but have always thought i was. Before having any kids I was a B cup,then i had my first child and they grew to a C cup, then after having my second child, they are now a D. I'd hate to think they would get bigger if I ever have any more children.

I would settle for C but would love a B. D is just too much for me. I have lost 20 lbs. and have about another 20 to go. I'm hoping if I do reach my goal, they will shrink.

Another 20 lbs. may shrink them a little. My younger sister had Ds and she ended up getting a reduction. She is so happy now; can wear "normal" tops and feels like her body is in proportion. It's not for everyone but you only have one life to live and if you lose all the weight you want to and still aren't happy in your body because of your chest size...well...

it can be done!

a few years ago i lost alot of weight, and my chest went from a D to a small B. The main thing i just kept doing was cardio, i never did any upper body things really. I think its just one of the last places that really wants to go down because its supposed to be fatty there. but dont worry, it is possible!

I went from a D to a full B by consistantly doing cardio and adding in weight training in the couse of about 14 months. I actually would have preferred to stay around a C and am worried they are going to continue to get smaller as I get into better shape.

For those that went from a D to a B, how much weight loss are you looking at?

I need to lose some there, too... but I wonder if it's possible. I have only 6 more left to lose, and I'm a DD. I would be happy with a regular D, or really anything smaller.

From heaviest to current weight was a 30 pound difference. But the boob shrinking happened in the last 10 pounds for me. I went from a size 12 to a size 6 - and a D to a B
