Ok so I'm down 66 lbs. I went to get measured for a new bra really excited. Wrong. My cup size went up 3 cups! The lady said oh that's normal since you had wls it's skin. Didn't expect that. Anyone else have this problem?

I have lost 101lbs and went from a DD42 to a DD34 in plus size bras. When I went into the plus size store to get measured for a new bra, she said "I wondered why you were in here"! I notice that my boobs aren't as full as they were and they squish into things more easily.

That is my biggest fear and I know that sounds really childish, but I am so worried about that. I was a 36B by whole life, until 7 years ago when I had my son; I am a 40DD, I am so worried that after surgery my cup size will shrink! I was talking with my mom the other day about a boob job after surgery. Has anyone gotten a boob job after surgery?

I went for new bras twice already. I had been measured once at migh high weight, and was told I was a 46B/C to start. After surgery, 40lbs later, I got measured at a new place, and she said I was a 42DD. I said how did they get bigger cup-wise?

So, I buy one bra, and order a few more. When the others get delivered two weeks later, I go in and I get measured again, because I didn't beleive the DD part. Well, the lady says I am not a 42DD, I was now a 38 DD. So, they let me return the new bras for some smaller ones. I'm happy with the way the girls are looking in the right-size bra.

I'm down about 90lbs and my boobs have always been small. For someone 380lbs my boobs were tiny lol. I was a 46 C though I wore D bras but my actual cup since was a C. Now I definitely notice volume loss in the actual breast and its more skin then full tissue. Part of my boob feels almost like tissue paper skin. It's weird, especially when pushed up in a push up bra it feels all strange I can't explain it lol. I'm in some of the same bras but only because I was smushed into them before. My best fitting bra is a 42 C, though my cup is definitely more on the B side. I'm pretty sure if I ever get to goal ill be and A cup lol

I must be missing something. How can you get bigger because of skin.. You're not getting anymore skin than you had in there before.

I'm not sure, bt I will give it a try. The cup size is determined based on the difference between the measurements of the lower chest area (band size) and the fullest part. In my case, I lost a lot of back fat, but my boobs haven't really changed in size or shape at all. I guess that might account for the difference as my lower measurement (band size) has decreased with the weight loss but the other number hasn't changed.
