Default Changes in bustline

Not sure where to post this, but this forum seems to encompass a lot of "body" matters...

Does anyone remember the old joke about women pumping their arms and chanting, "we must, we must, we must increase our bust"? I never took that seriously or understood anyone to say those kinds of exercises really worked. Anyway...

A little info on me -- maybe TMI -- I've been overweight since second grade and I've never had perky breasts. They've always pointed south, unfortunately. With a good bra, it doesn't bother me so much, and since I'm single, it doesn't bother anyone else. ha!

I've read a lot of posts by women here that say that their "girls" deflate with weight loss, and become saggy, or more saggy. And, honestly, I experienced that at first with my loss, and was prepared for even more. But, surprisingly, I think they're firming up, and may even be a little less saggy!

I've been strength training and lifting as heavy as I can and loving it for about 6 months. I've seen remarkable improvement in my shoulders and upper arms in particular, and hadn't really noticed "the girls." But, what do you know, I think they're perking up! Nothing spectacular, but definitely a change for the better.

I haven't read anywhere about particular exercises to strengthen or increase the bustline, but something that I'm doing is working. I just wondered if anyone else has had this experience. I haven't seen any other posts about similar phenomena, but, ladies, if you're sad about the shape of your "girls," there might be hope!
