Changing bra sizes as the pounds drop

Recommended Posts

BUH. So in November, I was a 42H. I have been highly annoyed with my bras stabbing the hell out of me, to the point I was wearing super unsupportive, 7 dollar walmart bras just to avoid the underwire stabbing (and because I didn't want to go spend $$$ on something that may only fit for awhile). I got tired of constantly running to the restroom to either yank the band down or reposition the goods, and I finally measured myself and checked out the reddit measurements. Lo and behold, I am now a 38H (I in many brands). 

I went out to buy one bra today to have it in hand before I take full use of the brand/size comparisons on reddit and order something cheaper online to get me through the next few months. I'm tossing all the old ones in the trash - hasta la vista! Thanks again for the reminder and the info to get the right fit :D

Hooray! Life with a better fitting bra is just better.

Whine. My c cup bras are barely the right size. I am still losing, but darn it, do not want to drop to a B cup! It's so unfair that women lose weight and their boobs go, but men lose weight and it makes their "equipment" look bigger!

Also, has anyone seen Clusie L's video on breasts post weight loss surgery? It's hysterical.

I've decided my boobs actually do look bigger now. Even though I've dropped from a C cup to a B having no fat over my ribs means these little puppies do stick out more than they used to.

You're also probably in a smaller band size, so the proportions between the cups and bands is actually different. 

I'm "shrinking away" and have gone down to a 32DD :lol: which seems tiny to me now, at least in comparison. The upside is that I can shop for bras in regular stores now - woo hoo!

I went down to 36DD - mine are nothing more than empty skin sacks at this point LOL.  In fact the other day I said to my hubby....Look at this!  I can roll them up!

Yeahhhhh... My breasts have gotten much smaller. I’m actually happy that they are smaller but I wish they had shape. They are sad long socks that I smoosh into a ball shape for bra purposes. 

I was recently measured at 34DD. That doesn’t sound accurate but who knows any more!

Hey, as long as they look fine in clothes! Here's where having a good bra comes into play. I got some "lightly lined" ones that approximate a great shape. I never wore lined bras previously because why would I possibly want them to look bigger. But the lining gives structure now (and visually adds a bit? which I need now?).

Bras have been the bain of my life since losing my excess weight because I have little breast tissue left and what I do have is classified as pendulous (the nipple and the lower breast mass are below the breast crease line on the chest).

I jumped between page 1 and 5 so I need read the center pages; I agreed wholeheartedly with both pages, and the last page made me laugh heartily as I'm at the same point experienced by others. Two bras the same size 38E (what!), one feels snug the other has to be returned as too big. I can basically roll up the tissue too and fit another breast in the top of the bra as everything pools and bags on the bottom. I just got rid of the bras I've been holding onto, 46DDD-40DD-42C and a range of sizes in between; I was wearing the 40DD up until I fell out the band a month ago. I have always hated bra shopping, sizing, scratchiness, digging into the side, side boobage, back fat, etc. I had liked Catherine's the best pre-surgery, then they seemed to get a designer that hates women to design the new bras. I was measured recently in a local store and purchased; I've finally stopped feeling like it's digging into my side although it weighs on my shoulder bones ... I bought a different bra online as the local store only had the one bra in my size in a non-underwire. (I don't like underwire as the wires dig, and I've always felt unsupported with my bosoms taking on a life of their own.) I can't find my size in the local department stores. I think I'm going to try the Reddit link.

After going from a 48 D to a 36 B it took my sagging boobs a good year to catch up.  They were saggy before surgery but even more while losing weight.  Now they seem to be more firm than before.  I like Victoria Secret bras.  I like the slightly padded as they do fill out the rest..

Mine seem to catch up and fill out every couple of months. Seems I lose weight from my boobs first (always have) but when my weight redistributes it fills the cups again.....very thankful for that as I always only been a B cup.
