Okay, so I wanted to know what size are you right now and your weight and around 130 what size you are. My goal is 125 but I want to get an idea on what size I would be. Im 191 now and I wear 14/13. 14's are baggy on me but 12's are to tight.
Also I'm a 36C and I was wondering, about how much weight you lose in your beasts if you lose over 60lbs. I havent lost any weight there yet but I was told that you do.
I am 5'8 and weigh between 128-132. I now wear anything from a 4 to a 10 depending on the brand. Down from a 10 -14 at around 155. I started out rather flat chested, 36 A, now I'm a 34 A, so I can't help you there.

I am 5'7". I started at 195 lbs and was a very tight size 18. My bra size was 42DD and I now wear a 34 D. I have very small frame (tiny wrists, fingers) and I weigh between 127 and 130 lbs. I am generally a size 8, but a lot of places are seriously vanity sizing and I sometimes wear a 6 (particularly Ann Taylor).

Everyone's different and there is no "set" amount or size...
For example, I am 5'7, 132 and a 6/8. I went down an entire cup size (38C to a 34B), but that's my genetics. I think if you were to poll everyone in that category you would come up with all kinds of different numbers. When I was at 191, I was barely squeezing into a 16. If I were to do a poll with those specifics, I would go by body type. I was all hips before and I'm still all hips now.

5"6 or 6 1/2, 132, size 4, 36A, used to be a C, but I am sure I lost some breastage due to nursing as well as weight loss.

I'm 5'8" and started out at 173 in a tight 12 bra 38D.
I am now 137 and size 6 bra 36D (but am going bra shopping for a 36C this weekend).

Yah, we are all VERY different. I am 229 and wear a size 16, my bra size is 38DD, and when I was thinner I was a 36C. I don't know the size I wore because everything fits SO differently now!

I am 5'7 and weigh 142 currently. I started at 234 lbs. in a size 20. I now wear a size 4 in women's or a size 5-7 in Jr. miss jeans. (It depends so much on what brand I wear). I wear a size 10 mostly in shirts. I began with a 42DD chest and now am a 36C chest. I wear mid-rise jeans for them to fit on my slender hips and legs. My waist is my problem area. If I bought higher cut jeans I'd need a size 8 at best.

Thanks guys. I know all of us are very different with our bodies, but I just wanted a range that I could possible be in. I have another question though. When my mom got down to 125 she was a size 6/7. She gains her weight in the same places I do. Would I end up around there since I have my moms genetics or is it still a different body kind of thing?

I guess it depends on who you take after. I would be inclined to say yes. When I lost weight I discovered that I had an almost identical frame to my mother. She used to be much skinnier and shorter than I will ever be, but we have the same exact build, I'm just the taller version. The hips, the tummy, the boobs, the legs- it's all there. It's funny how stuff like that works out :)

I think it would have to do with muscle and how firm your skin is. You are younger so may be smaller than her at the same wt. I am the same heighth as you and 125 lbs. would be too small for the way I'm built. I weighed 135 in high school and was deemed "underweight" by my doctor. (Of course, I was athletic then and was very slender with all the muscle). Not a problem for me now.

Hi. I'm 5'6" and around 142
I wear around 8-10 (but I realize the 8's are probably vanity sized)
I'm more of an "apple shape" and my shirts are size L
I'm about 38C, but had a reduction about 6 years ago from DD.
Started out in the area of maybe 230 and 18/20

I'm 5'7" and have gone from 174 to 159. I wear a 10 and a 36D/DD. I lost mainly back fat (going down from a 38D) but not much from the boobs.

I'm 5' 5" and when I was 193 lbs, size 18 jeans were tight on me. Now I'm 152 lbs and size 12 jeans are just right.
Not that that means anything. We all carry weight differently.
