Mine went from DDD to a small C the first month. Flat and droopy. A few months ago someone said theirs looked like streetlights now. That's what mine look like! The balloon analogy was great too!! But i gotta say, they look nice in a bra, so I don't know if I'll go for a lift. I'm 51. And as of now, I'm kinda tired of surgeries. ;-)

Thanks ladies!! If mine don't get smaller I will be disappointed for sure! I've always had big boobs so I don't want them to shrink to grapes. Ha! Loved the balloon comment! I'm scheduling surgery for the end of this month and I'm excited but so nervous.

I have lost 55 lbs and gone from a 38I to a full 36H, so barely any change. I have another 35 to lose and I sure hope some of that is in the boobs! I had giant boobs even when I was skinny and in jr high. so I shouldn't be surprised. It's genetic. I have a consult appt this month for a reduction I hope to get in August. I am soooo looking forward to it!

I don't fit into any of my bras anymore and I had really nice lane Bryant bras too. I'm sure breast feeding and pumping for two kids didn't help in addition to the WLS.

I call my boobs "the sandbags" ugh!!!

I've been using genie bras for now. I too realize that plastics will be in future when I hit goal. I'm just over 3 months post op and I've lost 70lbs so far.

Ill take sandbags any day as long as I'm loosing!

I too am so looking forward to change in this area. I'm currently a 42DD. And to be honest sometimes (it depends on what bra I wear) I can feel like the hulk in that area so I prob could use a slightly bigger size. After breast feeding four kids they are already saggy and kinda shaped like a mitliton.

Im 4 1/2 months out from surgery and have lost 52 lbs. My boobs seem to fit in my bras the same but feel a little different to the touch. They used to feel stuffed full now they feel a bit looser (just like my a**). Im happy to have not lost cup size only band sizes so far but even if I do its ok. Im a shorty with an hourglass shape so hopefully everything continues to go down proportionately. But either way I look better than I did before surgery ;)

I know what you mean about additional surgery, I will be 53 in Feb. At least I will be able to buy pretty padded bras from VICTORIA SECRETS!

When I was a slim teenager I so wished for the enormous boobs I have now. Who knew I'd have to gain 100lbs to get 'em. My large belly cancels out the big full breasts. Ha! I know they will deflate to a full C if I get back to my ideal weight and I will be soooooo happy with that!

My girls are the only place I can see weightloss and it's depressing! They went from looking like melons to fried eggs nailed to a wall...

I havent had surgery yet, but I hope I dont shrink down to nothing. Ive always had larger boobs, even when I was skinny so Im hoping Ill be ok and they dont deflate on me. If so, Im SO getting a boob job!

o...o i don't think i can bear to see my boobies go, i mean i love them i will be so sad, i just want them to be maybe more... shaped i guess. I am a 40c or d right now, i think one is bigger than the other because one always fits the others like see you bro its too small in here and tries to pop out on me. Maybe it sounds weird but i've had big boobs since i was like in elementary school so maybe its a genetic thing idk ill have to find out

I've lost 122 lbs and went from a 44DDD to a 38G so they aren't as big on the sides but I've kept most of them.

You went UP in cup size?

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
