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.

This is how people are gaining cup sizes:

Measuring your band size is pretty self explanatory - around the ribs, where your bra band sits. Then you measure around the fullest part of your breast. If your breast measurement is 1 inch larger than your band size, then you are an A cup. 2 inches bigger, then a B cup. and so on. (rough ideas on measuring for the example)

So if you start as a 40 B, that would mean the fullest part of your breast measures 42". If you lose some band sizes, and your breast size stays the same, it would increase the cup size. If you are now 36 in band size, but your breast size still measures 42" then the difference between cup size and band size is 6" and that would lead to a size DDD cup. So your new bra would be 38DDD.

Make any sense?

When you have a bigger band size the cup will be bigger than if you have a smaller band size...for example a 44DD cup will be much bigger than a 36DD cup, so that's why in some cases you'll have to go up a bigger cup size after losing weight!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
