Default Losing weight and bra size, help?

So, I was really excited cuz right when I hit 40 lbs lost I went from a 44 F to a 42 DDD. I was pretty excited...

But then this week, not due for my period and not pregnant, I have gone back to an F.

It's tightened all the way, and it's a TINY bit roomy, but WAY more comfortable than my DDD which I am falling out the bottom of!

What happened?!

Anyone else have this happen? My bf says it's the universe giving him a gift. lol.

It could be that ol' hydration gain. If I can swell in my belly, why not the girls, too? Is the band size the same?

The cup went up, not the band.

Also, I'm down in weight, wouldn't I be up if it were water retention?

Are the styles of bras the same because my girls behave differently depending on the construction?

Yup. Same bra. ( pretty much ONLY buy the balconette from lane bryant. It's fabulous!)

But either way, a few weeks ago this bra I"m wearing now was too big. I"ve lost weight since then and now it's fitting.

Confusion abounds.

On my bras, if I'm coming out the bottom, I usually need to go down a band size, whereas if I'm leaking out the top I need to go up a cup size.

I'm kind of having both problems at once. lol.

I was not having these problems a week ago.

I don't eat dairy or meat, it's not a BGH thing. I'm disturbed.

You are in your 30's, right? Your hormone fluctuations could be changing.

I have a friend who swears she has only a few 'good' days a month when her hormones are not going one way or the other. Premenstrual changes can begin as early as two weeks before and take a week to normalize after hence my friend's theory.

And I do think water gains can be concentrated in different areas of the body. I never notice a change in the girls but my ankles tell a different story. I also think you may have lost more weight than you know but you can't tell because of the water gain.

These are my best guesses based on anecdotal experience not scientifically proven.

Lost more weight than I know? I'll take it! Mystery solved.

lol

wooo! :P

haha.

Maybe, that might be it. It's annoying, they are so huge. lol.

and yeah I"m 31. There is a weirdness that might help explain, I run my bc together for 3 months, then TOM comes. Like clockwork most of the time. ( Before the pill it was a MESS, basically, if I"m NOT taking the pill, it's more like time of the year. cuz it is EVERY SINGLE DAY!)

Anyhow, I do notice sometimes I get PMS even when it's not my 'due time' and I don't get my actual period, but I Get VERY cranky and I bloat and boobs get bigger. This is making some sense to me that this may be it. Some months it's worse than others, so I think it's been okay for awhile so I must've just forgotten about this happening. I was so evil yesterday. lol. my poor bf. haha.
