There's a vain side of me that's actually concerned about how much weight I will lose from my chest. I have lost a steady amount thus far and my boobs don't look smaller yet. My goal is to lose 35 more pounds and I'm curious as to how many bra sizes I might drop? I'm currently at a 36D
For those who have lost up to 40lbs. how much smaller did your boobs get?
I know everybody's body is different as to which part of the body fat is removed from but I have heard of sculpting methods to even change your shape, are you a believer in that?
I just need to prepare myself mentally, or if at all, thanks!
I've lost about 40 pounds, and went from a 38C to a 34B. Which I'm very happy with so I can fit into tops. If I want bigger, I put on one of my padded bras.
I think it's about genetics though, because there are many skinny people with bigger boobs and overweight people with not so large ones.
You are absolutely right everybody is different there is absolutely no way to know for sure what you will do. Personally at my heaviest weight I was a DD in denial that I actually needed to be a DDD. At my lowest weight (80 pounds lighter and at an normal BMI) I was a D. I would love to be a C but I doubt my body will ever drop that much from my chest at any weight.
It really does vary individually what size they will be. However, often, they are a lot cuter smaller if you go to the gym and lift light dumbbells doing certain exercises. Lay down on a gym bench face up. Have two dumbbells, one in each hand. Pick whatever is most comfortable for you, five or ten pounds, or something else. Usually people start sort of low and then over time build up to a little bit of a higher dumbbell weight. Reach both hands straight out to the sides as you are laying on the bench. Raise them straight up above your head, with your wrists touching or nearly, next bend your elbows as in one line you bring them down to your chest together at the same time, then push them back straight up again and together, hold, then slowly bring your arms back out to the starting position. You want to keep the line up by your chest. Do this move an average of say 10 for one set and do three sets. But actually it can vary individually. So do whatever feels right for you. This should over time make your chest look very good smaller and you would be glad they aren't so big anymore. Seriously. But it does take time, doing it say two to three times a week, for ever. I'd say give it a few months to begin to see results. It can make them young again. You also might want to do another exercise to compliment this one. Get on a bench, laying down with your face up. Get a bar that sets behind your head and above it with light weights on either end (20 pounds is a possibility for this one). Then lift the weight bar (keep both hands centered at shoulder width), as you raise it off of the bar it was setting on. Then move it to above your chest. Bend your elbows as you bring it down to just above the center of your chest, slowly, and bring it back up. Do this an average of 12 times for one set and do three sets. Again this is very individual and you will want to figure out what feels right for you. But this is a gauge to have an idea. Together, these two exercises are the miracle cure for women's chests everywhere.
At 227 lbs I was a saggy DD, after losing 87 lbs, I am now a very saggy C :( I was not impressed with them before I lost weight and am not much happier now. You really won't know until you get there. Everyone is different. Good luck!
I hold my weight on my chest and stomach (apple/ex-apple now hourglass). I was probably a 36DD/38D Last year (September-ish) before weight loss and earlier this year 36D, last month a small 38C (36D too big 36C way too small, bought from a brand that runs small for sizes for bras) and now slightly overflowing 36C (and I am stopping my weight los s when I am a normal 36C). Total weight lost 50lbs, 20lbs lost with cc since Jan 14th (so basically after losing 20lbs I have still not officially gone down a cup size I am between sizes, I may need to lose another 5-10lbs to be an official C cup).
I've lost about 20 lbs so far and have only gone down from a 36Bish to a 34B. I wasn't that big to begin with though, so that might be why I haven't lost the weight up top.
Btw too I was vain about it too because my first loss was mainly in My chest but the last 5lbs were mostly belly and made me look more proportional again. So my advice worry about it later just keep working!
The quick answer is that everyone is different. It usually depends on your age, genetics and your inherent body shape.
I can say that from my experience, while I was still in the process of losing weight my girls lost some fullness and got smaller... but once I reached my goal weight and began to maintain my weight.. they filled out again over about six months and my cup size was only a little smaller than before, although my band size had gone down by several inches. Before weight loss I was squeezing myself into a 44 DDD .. after 6 months of maintenance 34 DD. ETA: I lost 85 lbs.
Your experience might be different. You won't know until you've done it.
I laughed when I read this because I was worried about the same thing!
I've been going between 34 d and dd since I was 13 so they've always been there and I was worried that while I'm working out and eating healthy, they would just shrivel up. haha. I'm 5'9 and about 141 lbs and I am happy to report I still wear a 34 D. I still need to tone up and slim down very slightly, but I can't imagine them getting much smaller. I notice it's the first place I gain weight and the last place I lose it. I would really watch your body as it changes. You'll know pretty quickly where the weight is coming off.
Because it is a bigger weight loss, you may go down, but again as you know, it just depends on your body
I've lost a little over 30 pounds, and my nearly B boobs have not changed a bit... I do work outs for my chest and I think they actually look fuller because of it. :) Good luck!
I've gone from 162lb to 123lbs, used to wear a 36c now a 34c, not too much of a change.
Thanks so much for all the info, it is making me feel better.
I keep telling myself that they'll look better even if smaller but wanted to learn about others' experience. I'll continue working out the pecs and doing pushups to keep them fit, haha
I just lost two cup sizes (I was like a 40D - it was ridiculous!) but I hate mine, and always wear sports bras and things, so I didn't mind.
