Do your boobs decrease alot when you lose weight?

I'm wondering...what are the chances that I'll go down a cup size or two? Anyone out there lose up to 20lbs and find that their cup size has shrunk too? I expect the number to go down, but curious about the cup....

I have lost almost 60 pounds, and I have noticed my bra cups have more room than before. I still have a lot more weight to lose, so I am waiting as long as possible to buy a new bra. My mom went from a size 12 to a size 4/6, and she said her chest shrunk.

Absolutely! It is a fact that breasts are the first part of a female body that loose the mass, followed by face (cheeks fall in, etc).
Unfortunately, there's nothing to do to avoid it really. If you are a bigger person, that probably won't matter that much, but on a smaller person like I am, 15-10 pounds down to my 'ideal' weight I know from previous experience I'll drop from C cup to A, or small B at most. As soon as I gain some weight, not even much, same 10-15 pounds, again, my breasts become plump and full.

Yea, I droped a cup size when I lost 5 pounds. But I was not large to begin with. Went from a 34 C to a 34 B. Breats are made of fat, so they go away! But it's worth it, from my point of view. In fact, when my breasts are getting bigger, I can tell I'm gaining weight. They bump into things and don't fit my bras, and bother I prefer to have smaller ones, they make me feel athletic and sleek. And clothes sit so much better.

I went from 180 and a 36D to 120 and a 34C.... not too much different. I guess it depends on your body type.

Regardless of how much decrease you'll see in your chest, losing weight and being healthier is so much more worth your time than spending your life unhealthy with a big chest.

I lost 85 lbs and my cup size stayed the same, but my band went down. That is not the first place I lose weight, so it's not true for everyone. You might not change too much.

I have only lost 10 pounds but my boobs have stayed the same and I expect they will because I am on birth control. A good side effect of BC is that your boobs grow!

Will they change as muchif you're still "puberty" age? I'm 17 and still growing (all the women in my family magically get endowed at around 18-19 lol), and am planning to lose about 20 lbs (5'8 135? depends how I look). Right now I'm about a 36 C but if I'm gonna lose ALL my curves, i.e. bra size, I don't know if I'd rather be that skinny...curvy is sexy!

It really depends on your body type and genetics. My mom and I are both very well-endowed. When we gain weight, it goes to our boobs first. When we lose, it leaves them last.

I've gone from 129 lbs to 113 lbs, and I've dropped 3 clothing sizes. My 34D bras still fit, though there is a little more room in the cups. So 3 clothing sizes wasn't even close to a cup for me.

I have friends, though, who definitely lose weight in their boobs first. It really depends on the person.

As for the poster who's still going through puberty, I don't think the weight loss will have any different effect on you than on anyone else (again, depends on your genetics). You do need to be sure that you are eating enough though, as your body needs the fuel to make the changes it needs to make. If you "mess up" and eat too little when your body is not going through changes, it is bad for you, but you can recover. If you eat too little when your body is trying to go through changes, you may permanently altar how you were meant to look. i.e. when I was about 12 - 13, I was not eating enough (some boy had called me fat; I wasn't. So I stopped eating much.) I am now 5'1", while my mom is 5'5", and my dad is 5'9" - not giants, but not uber-short like me! I was probably supposed to be taller, and not eating probably stunted that, as that's when I should've been growing!
