Will my breast get smaller if i lose weight?

Im 5'3 and weight 200 pounds, 25 yrs of age, yes i know im overweight, but ive recently decided to take charge and lose my weight. before i had my son i was 134 pounds and used a 36C bra size now 3 yrs later i use a 40DDD..Im determined to lose this weight and get back down to a good healthy weight but, im really scared that my breast wont go back to a 36C or even a single D...i also use an IUD called MIRENA and sometimes i feel as if that made me gain weight too..but my OBGYN swears that it has absolutly nothing to do with my weight gain....
So if anybody has gone through this please, please give me feedback
Thank you!

  • When I lost weight that was one of the first places that I lost it. My chest and my face is what seems to slim down the fastest.

  • Yes, they will. Being 200 lbs, a lot of your breast weight is fat, and the more at you lose, the smaller your breasts will get. BTW, The Dr's try to tell us that birth control won't cause weight gain, but I can tell you they do more than they don't, and women all over the world can tell you that too.

  • yes you lose your boobs what size they will be after not sure,but you may want to go to a better department store like Macys or something and get fitted as you are losing the weight. Wearing the wrong size can actualy cause a whole lot of back probs & whatnot.

  • I lost about 60 pounds and went from a full C/small D to a B. I wish they were a bit bigger, but I gotta say, I'd rather have a B cup and a good figure than bigger boobs and bigger...everything else.
    Good luck!

    However my mom lost a lot of weight and is still a C cup so who knows!?!
