Weird question, but how much do boobs weigh?


Quote  |  Reply

Obviously boobs come in all different sizes, but my doctor told me I have very dense breasts.  They feel hard, kind of like implants, but they're not, and they cause a lot of pain, mostly because they're sore a lot.  My doc says they're very glandular.  I usually take a 28FF/F, 30E..(not as big as it sounds. Same as a 34D).  Sometimes I wonder how much they weigh, especially since I weighed less before they grew (late bloomer, lol).  Anyone the equivalent size of 34D basically, who can tell me an estimate?

The average boob (C cup) weights the same as a water bottle (each). But yours are larger then average so I would say about three/ three and a half pounds each.

... I'm almost afraid to ask how they figured that one out, lol.

 LOL I was thinking the same thing!

I watched 'plastic surgery before and after' and this girl lost SIX pounds after getting her breasts reduced from an GGG to a b/c cup!

I think breasts weigh 1-2 pounds each on average, so maybe your weigh 4lbs haha?

I just weighed mine on my electronic kitchen scales (!) in the name of scientific research!

I'm a 32D and mine weigh about 1.4 or 1.5 KG (pretty darn hard to weigh them but this was the best estimate I could get!) which is just over 3 lbs together or about 1.5 pounds each! So maybe yours are more like 2 lbs each?

*sigh*, things I do for this forum ;)

oh my, this made me chuckle :P

Lol, I want boobs!

I've wondered it before.  Because ME at 105 pounds doesn't look as skinny as someone else at my same height/weight.  At least, my husband reassures me.

I've come to wonder if it's because the weight that would normally be distributed in my boobs puts a few extra pounds on the rest of my frame...

Where on earth can you find a 28 bra size???  Smallest I could ever find was a 32 and they used to ride up on me.  I have gotten bigger around in the past couple years so the 32 works well now.

:o I'm a 30E too. I thought I was probably the only one in the world cause its extremely hard for me to find a bra that fits properly in a normal shop. I'm trying to gain weight too..

A long time ago a woman on CC had her husband hold up her boobs while she weighed - then she weighed without his help....then she did it with one boob held at a time - it was very cute - I can't remember what they weighed though!

The things we do when we have time on our hands.  I am 5'6" and about 145 lbs and I wear a 36HH cup now that I am nursing. 

To measure the weight of my breast I used a kitchen scale to weigh each of my breasts. My left breast weighs 3.81kg and my right is 3.7kg exactly.  For my American friends, that is about 8.40 lbs for my left breast and 8.25 for my right breast.

The second method is a method called displacement. Displacement is a method used to measure the volume of a liquid. We submerged my breasts into a large bowl that was full of warm water to the rim and collected the water that spilled over into a 2nd large bowl. We then took the 2nd bowl and weighed it with the water in it.  We discovered that each one of my breasts weighed approximately 8 lbs minus the weight of the bowl.

I carry over 16 lbs of breasts all day every day.  Now I know why I pay 80+ dollars for a bra.

 

Note:

There is no scientific way to calculate breast weight and there are too many variables when dealing with breasts to come up with any logical formula for figuring breast weight.  Breast density, percentage of fat cells, milk filled lactating breasts vs. non-nursing breasts, etc. all contribute to variations in breast weight for the same breast volume. There are several different methods that I have used to estimate the weight of my breasts. Each method gives a different result and there are differences when using the same method but repeating the procedure two or three different times.
