...what did you end up with once you lost weight? Two flattened tubes hanging at your waist?

Or did they shrink back up onto your chest at all?

Fat or thin, once they're down there, are we going to have to tuck them into our waistband forever? :eek:

I received a birthday card with this:

'You know what they say....you know you're getting old when you go to touch your toes and your boobs touch the floor first.' :joker:

I think this could apply to weight loss too. ;)

I'll be honest from my experience. I started off at 255 5'2" and I wore a 44DD/E My breast are a sorry excuse for boobs if I saw any...lol I will tell you mine are smaller. I am a 36D now. But they are very wrinkly. Like my 80 year old grannies. I hope and pray they tighten up so to speak. No one can tell at all when I have my bra on tho. And when I am am going around in myy night gown I will say they stand up a little better. They dont hang as low as they use to, but they are flatter.

But I started in Jan. So I will have to see what time does to me ;0

Thank you, Terre. I haven't lost much at all yet, but wonder what I'll end up with when I'm done. Now that I'm not 20, the results might not be too pretty. :(

Mine hang pretty low now when bra-less but I have been able to get some pretty underwire bras and they look fine in those. At least, DH is pleased.

I have a friend who lost over a hundred and she swears by Netrogena lotion with "Active Copper." She says it really helped shrink and tighten up her skin.

I made a joke when I first posted. However, since I have lost weight my breasts hang down. I am with timetolose. I good bra will help if necessary.

It will still be prettier and a heckuva lot healthier than walking around with all the added weight.

My boobs were certainly more filled out when I was 165 lbs heavier, but I feel waaaaaay more sexy, more confident, more attractive and feminine.

Lol. I am with KatMarie on this one. I fully intend to get a boob job as my present to myself after one year of maintaining goal weight.

WARNING: GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION TO FOLLOW. MAY BE NECESSARY TO BLEACH YOUR BRAIN TO REMOVE THE IMAGES.

I'm 36 years old and I have always had "granny boobs" ever since they started getting bigger than a C cup. When I was 15 the first boy who had the good fortune to get a peek at the girls, made a nasty face and coined the term. Needless to say, he was history but his comment still lives on.

While I am nursing right now, and wearing a 38DDD, they don't look any fuller. I can say with 100% certainty that I have loose skin that I can pinch and lift up, like a flap, around 4 or 5 inches. When I don't have on a bra, the breasts flatten out and droop down almost to my waist, and if I were to measure them I'm sure they wouldn't even add one inch to my band size. If I walk around braless I have to cross my arms over my waist to stop any jiggle, nowhere near where breasts are supposed to live. They sort of resemble a tennis ball in a sweat sock when I bend over and catch sight of them.

Since losing 30-ish pounds, the droop doesn't extend the full eight inches that it used to. Yes, I measured from my cleavage down to the bottom. :o I've made myself curious now, and I'll measure again tonight, but I'm sure they shrank upwards at least 1 or 1.5 inches.

So, the good news is, they do get smaller and start going back where they originated. The bad news is, they don't get firmer or lifted.

Sorry for the gross mental images. Take a bleach break now. :p

LOL goodforme! No brain bleach necessary. :)

Um. I must've totally been wearing the wrong size bra for a LONG time. I got a La Senza GC for my birthday, so I got measured like a Do-Bee. Dang. I'm still a 36D, though can wear a 38C. This is AFTER losing over 60 lbs. They look fantastic in a push up bra, and naked...they're "okay". They're a bit droopy (39, 2 kids, weight loss) but not as hideous as they could be, you know? My husband likes them...and they look great in a bra. I'm too much of a wuss to get a boob job, so that's not in the cards for me.

Put another checkmark here for the boob job, I'm totally getting one of these. As funny as it sounds, I've always wanted to be in New Orleans, or somewhere like that, and be one of the flashers :) And if you knew me, you'd understand how absolutely hillarious that would be for me to do.

But yes, la girls... if I'm laying down and hold my arms just right, they're beautiful! :)

I wouldn't go for the boob job but would really like to get my upper arms done. More people see them and I don't have a device that will hold them in place! :)

I have started telling myself that the hanging body parts and loose skin is not the result of losing weight. They are the consequences of carrying so much extra weight for so many years. Unless someone has a time machine that I can borrow, I have to live with the consequences of my actions. The consequences could be so much worse. I could have dropped dead of a heart attack or had the terrible results of diabetes, such as lost vision or a lost limb, as a consequence. I am getting off easy with some droopy body parts and loose skin. I am very grateful.

Actually, as an alternative to surgery, I *might* look into uh...just went blank. Starts with Tri-, I think. It's radio frequency skin tightening.

Thanks for all the great (and honest!) replies!

Goodforme, I didn't need brain bleach. I know exactly what you're talking about. I might measure my "length" too!

Annie, I know what you mean about those "longs".

I'm too chicken to ever have any work done, so will just have to work with what I have.

I agree with Cheryl--just getting it off will be wonderful. I don't care if I'll have to roll up my boobs and stuff them in my sock. :D

Let's see.....

I've always bee endowed generously. I think the only time they were perky was when I was like 12 because they weren't at capacity yet. It fluctuates but they stay in the G to H range. Because of their size and weight due to size the laws of gravity dictate that they hang down. They don't look ball in sockish but they have what look like wrinkles due to loose skin from weight loss.

I loose all over my body but I'll usually lose a few pounds in one area and then it rotates to another spot. About 20 lbs ago I think I must have lost like 2 lbs overnight in my boobs. They looked deflated, wrinkly, and saggy. When I lied down they deflated and slinked off to the side of my body exposing an even more wrinkled up part. I was absolutely horrified. I'm glad to report that they have firmed up a bit again but there is still loose parts. It isn't super attractive but neither is a ton of extra weight so I'll just keep them contained in attractive lingerie.
