When I lose weight will my breasts get smaller?

Fact of the Day: The word breast is mentioned 25 times in this blog entry. :))

Ehehe. I've been asked this question many many times. Some even change their mind to not lose weight simply bcoz they are afraid that their breasts will get smaller. Come on girls, don't think like that. Do you want large breasts but stay overweight or your want beautiful breasts and get your ideal weight and feel healthier? Choose.

First, let’s clear up one common misconception: bigger does not always mean better. Beautiful breasts are the ones that are tight and firm, flexible, yet toned. This is what will give your breasts a more youthful appearance and also keep them from falling. That is one of the things elderly women always fear. ~ getcurvynow.com

Q: I noticed that from your before and after measurements, you breasts were 38" before HL, and after HL it is 30". You manage to lose 8" from your breasts area alone. So my question is - will my breasts shrink if I lose weight?

Yes, I did lose 8" from my chest area, but that does not mean my breasts size shrank from a B to an A. It's still a B, only the circumference is smaller now.

In my case, my body likes to collect a lot of fat on my back, and ends up looking like I have a hump. So I'm happy to tell you when I start losing weight, my hump was getting smaller, and now no more hump to be seen. At the same time, by having the hump gone it also improves my posture. I'm no longer a Quasimodo. :P

Okay, one thing you should realized is, your breasts could shrink a little as the breasts area does hold a bit of fat. How much? That would depend on your body type and how much you have actually gained. Yes, believe it or not, it is common for women to gain weight in their chest area.

Some breasts can be quite saggy. My question is - Do you want to maintain the size of your breast knowing that they are not really as firm and as tone as they could be?

When you start losing weight, you will lose fat from the sides of your breasts (below the armpit), the top of your breasts, underneath your breasts and from the back of your body; so all of that will contribute to how much your chest area will shrink. And trust me, when you lose a lot of weight, you will LIKE what you see. Your breasts will look much better, you get firmer/perkier looking breasts. :P

While you lose weight by controlling your food intake, you can always do chest workout. By working out your pectoral muscles, it gives the breasts a lift and can help firm your breasts and makes them look perkier and appear larger. This way, it's a win-win situation, you get your ideal weight AND beautiful breasts. :P

HOW TO EXERCISE FOR BIGGER BREASTS
article from livestrong.com

You can make your bust measurement bigger and improve your cleavage with a few simple exercises. While no exercises actually increase the amount of breast tissue you have, you can make them look higher and larger by developing the (pectoral) muscle underneath them. This also will give you better cleavage, which adds to the appearance of bigger breasts. Improving your posture also creates this illusion.

a. CHEAT FLY

Step 1
Set a weight bench to a 45-degree angle. Lie on the bench and plant your feet firmly on the ground. Grip 10- to 30-lb. dumbbells with your thumbs wrapped around them and palms facing forward to perform a chest fly. This exercise lifts the pectoral muscles under your breasts.

Step 2
Hold the dumbbells with your arms extended over your chest to begin. Lower them in an arc until they are even with your chest. Keep your elbows slightly flexed during this movement.

Step 3
Raise the dumbbells back up in the same wide arc. Exhale when you lift. You need to use enough weight that you feel a slight burn in your chest when you do the final repetitions.


b. PUSHUPS

Step 1
Place your shoulders directly over your wrists, fully extend your body and place your feet together with your toes pointed toward your shins to perform push-ups. Tighten your abdominal muscles. This puts you in a plank position.

Step 2
Lower your body toward the floor slowly. Keep your abdominals tight and your head and spine aligned. Stop lowering when your chin or chest touch the floor.

Step 3
Push away from the floor with your arms. Keep going until your arms are all the way extended. Do not lose your spine and head alignment.


c. WALL SLIDE

Step 1
Stand with your back to a wall. Move your feet about 1 foot from the wall but keep your back touching it.

Step 2
Keep your abs tight and lower down until your knees are bent to a 60-degree angle.

Step 3
Raise yourself back up until your knees are almost straight. Keep your abdominal muscles tight throughout the exercise, but don't forget to breathe.


d. SCAPULAR EXERCISE

Step 1
Lie on your stomach. Rest your forehead on a rolled towel. This keeps your neck in a neutral position.

Step 2
Bend your elbows to 90 degrees. Bring them out to your sides.

Step 3
Squeeze your shoulder blades together at the same time you lift your arms. Hold this position for three to five seconds before lowering.
