Default Are my boobs going to dissapear?

When I lose weight? They're only a B Cup now, and I'm wondering if I'll end up with an A. Any of you out there that have already lost the weight, did you lose yours?

I lost mine. I was 240 starting, shooting for 135, and 5'6"-just like you. Also a B cup to start.

Yep, mine are long gone, but along with the boobage went the the junk in the trunk- I have a healthier body, a slim and trim figure, and I can live with the little breasts I have; having all that extra weight would have ended up killing me.

You need to really focus on what you'll gain from losing, not what you're going to lose from losing (other than pounds).

I lost almost every bit of mine. I was a D and now I'm a C and that's being generous I think. I need to go for some type of bra fitting, because I actually think they are more like a B. I for sure wear a push-up bra now though, because I have a lol deflation problem now.

P.s. Mine were a B when I was 180, but I'm probably pushing a C right now. Maybe I'll keep a small B. ::hopes::

i was aiming for 150 but i may end up more in the 120-135 ( im 5'7-5'8) territory me thinks just going by my eating habits and new activity level, im a 40-42DD now and the last time i was 180 i was a 36D-dd so i dont know if i get to 125-135 if ill have boobs, i didnt go down in cup but in band thats fine with me but i figure once i pass the 180 mark or get down to that low they will be gone lol but i can always buy new ones right and then they wont flop to the side anyways. i have a friend thats an inch shorter than me and about 120lbs and shes like negative, like conclave lol

Slowly getting there one step at a time.

Mine are shrinking. I started out at 36D and now I'm at a 34C. Hopefully it doesn't shrink or deflate any more otherwise I'd have to go buy some.

Yep they are gone, my highest weight was 196 and I loved loved my breast, my favorite body part actually. Yes it sounds strange I am sure saying that but I have always been very pear shaped large but and HUGE thighs/hips so thought my breast were a perfect shapely full size C. I am now thinner than I ever thought I would be and work out a lot, I am down to 131 now and barely a size B. And some B’s are even to big…..but push up bra’s are my best friend now, and even found a padded sports bra that makes me feel better about myself in my work out clothes……I honestly would not change it for ANYTHING….yes I miss them but feel so much healthier and feel that I have conquered a lot of body issues and I refuse to let small boobies hold me back……I just laugh now and say that I guess I am officially part of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee.
Listen closely: the only time it's too late to change yourself is when you're dead. Until then, you're simply making excuses or lying to yourself.

You get whatever you settle for

I have definitely lost weight from my breasts, but not much in the way of cup size in proportion to my rib cage. I started out at a 42DD, and am now a 34DD or DDD (depends on the bra). They're pretty deflated though. Still, I'll take them any day over what my body looked like before.

I've lost most of my weight from my ribcage so far so the number size has gone down - I know the cup size is relative to the ribcage measurement so relatively the proportion is still the same. They never really got any bigger the more weight I put on so I really hope they don't disappear the smaller I get. It wouldn't be the end of the world if they did though I guess.

This is going to depend on a few different factors, really. Pear body types, like myself, are more likely to lose the boobs...simply because we don't store our body fat as much in our torso area...so I started out at a 38DD at 233 pounds...and now at 149ish, I am a 34B. So, yes, I did lose a lot of mine.

A friend of mine, however, is an apple figure type...and she is now a size 8, but is still a large C/small D cup, simply because she stores body fat more in her upper body/torso...but has slender, rock solid legs.

Also, your body composition plays a part. The lower your body fat, the more the boobs go. I was a 34C when I reached 150 pounds initially...but I took up running 2 1/2 months ago, and my bod fat percentage dropped a bit more...lost a cup size in the process.

Forgive me, but, being older, (52) and over a lot of things, I started at a 42DD. Now I'm 38DD, long and floppy.

Don't get me wrong, I love cleavage! But bra's are so hard to find that fit right and are comfy, and don't cost an arm and a leg.

Then, lets throw in that I live on a farm/ranch, big girls get in the way of lots of things. For instance, opening 4 strand, barbed wire gates. YUP, blood blisters on the armpit side of my left girl due to squeezing to suck up the gate to get it open. Saddle up and chase cows! OMG! One hand on the reins, the other holding the girls, so I don't get black eyes.

I work for a veterinarian, do a lot of animal restraint. So far, I have not been vaccinated for rabies, or a 10 way parvo combo, rattlesnake, or feline luekemia, or lyme, or any other host of things you can vaccinate a dog or cat for.

I do understand the attachment we have to the girls, but, there are other qualities I'd rather be remembered for.

I was a C cup at my heaviest weight (but I have to say, they were always sore and I was always uncomfortable with them at that size and hated the extra attention from it, needless to say, however, DH was a HUGE fan ).

Now I'm happily a B cup and near enough to my goal weight that I don't think they'll get any smaller. That being said, I wouldn't mind if they shrunk a bit more even, because running is way more comfortable the smaller my chest size. DH misses my Cs but I must say, I definitely don't!
