I would guess so.But its funny how we lose differently.Most women lose in the breasts though.

It really depends on the woman and your hormone levels, whether you are on hormonal birth control, or nursing a baby, your age, etc. etc.

But I would guess that your breasts would be smaller if you had less body fat, since a lot of breast tissue can be fat.

You could get a body fat test done, and while it would not give you a definitive answer as to how much fat is in your breasts, at least it would give you an idea of your overall body fat content.

I don't know if this is true or not but I've always heard you lose in the reverse order you gained.

So, for me, I gained in the chest last so that's where I saw the losses from first. I was a larger C and have gone down at least a cup size.

I think it just depends on where your body is predisposed to store fat.

It might, or it might go up. Cup size is more about the difference between your torso (under your chest) and your bustline, than the size of your breasts themselves. If you carry a lot of fat on your torso, the band size can go down more rapidly than breast size, then the band size goes down and cup size can go up, even though actual breast size may be smaller than when you started.

It definitely depends on your body, your genes. I went from a C cup to an A cup in a matter of months. Others have lost a hundred pounds or more without much change up top. You'll probably shrink some as you lose weight, but the degree of that shrinkage will depend on factors that you can't control.

We're all different. I haven't lost any cup size, just band size. I started as a 48DD and am now a 44DD. I wish they made 43 D-and-a-half though, because that's what I really am...

I noticed I went from a D to a C, but what I remember it was the last place to lose. I have gained 10 pounds back, and I swear in went back on right there.............:)

Like DCHound, I'm a DD. I started at 40DD and I'm at 36DD right now. I have always been big-chested, though, so I'm not expecting miracles in that arena. It would be nice to be a C, but we can't have everything, I suppose!

I have always been blessed with a nice ample "rack." Unfortunately, I have gone from a DD to a small B--large A. I would settle for a big B or small C but we can't choose these things unfortunately.

I'm losing my breast right now, and I'm only about 12lbs down? It's so sad, I wish the rest of me would go before my boobs.

G CUP HOLLA'

Sorry, it's so rare I meet or encounter any one with boobs as big as mine haha

Um... to give you some perspective I was a G 36 at my highest weight, am a G cup now, with a smaller band size (ya.. try finding 32 G's. I can ONLY shop at bra boutiques downtown where they import bras from Europe. Awesome high quality, pretty bras... at 100$ a pop at least. But totally worth it)

At my lowest weight which was around 140 I was a large E or F. So ya... still big. Oh, and I don't believe in all that double D bull****. If you're double D, guess what? You're probably an E. And you're probably wearing the wrong size if there is the word 'double' in anything you are wearing. There IS such a thing as bra vanity sizing and 'double' is the enemy.

I'm a gigantic advocate for PROPER bras and bra fittings. I work as a wardrobe technician for film and theatre and cannot stress enough the impact bras have on women's bodies. GET BRA FITTINGS. WEAR THE RIGHT SIZE EVEN IF IT IS A SCARY LETTER. No one knows the letter when they look at you, they'll only know how awesome you'll look if you are wearing the right bra.

My bra size is always changing and it depends on the bra too. I went to buy a new bra in Lane Bryant. Apparently, I got a trainee. We spent so much time looking for a bra then she got hung up on the registers and I spent 15 minutes waiting. I was so thoroughly frustrated I haven't been back.

That's the issue I have... I have lost some weight, and I can no longer wear a DD, but I am a little too big for Ds, but I wear the Ds anyway since they give more support than the DD. But I agree with everyone else... everyone is different, and you just need to wait and see. :)
