Why do we loose our breast mass first when loosing weight?

I've lost 15 lbs and I think most has come from my breast. I used to be a full D and now I'm a C cup. I like my breast and I still need to loose 45 lbs, does that mean I'll be flat chested by then?

  • I love that fact. If you are at all heavy, having larger breasts makes you look even bigger. I hate that. When I gain weight, that's the first place I gain it. It's also the first place I lose it. I would love to be able to wear a little t shirt like I used to.

  • because our boobs are sacks of glands and fat ;o) LOL

    IDK really though, When I lose weight, it's never from my boobs, it comes from my face and arms first, then tummy. Of course all I really want to lose is my thighs and butt! go figure

  • We lose it because breasts are all fat. The more fat we have, the more in our chest. I doubt you will end up flat chested.

  • I think it just depends on how much of your breasts are fat, and how much is lipids. Mine are mainly lipids, my doc told me during an exam. The more fat you lose the more you get down to your natural size breast. Some women have naturally big boobs even when thin.

  • and yes lipids are like fat but are different. for instance, your lips on your mouth is made of lipids...

  • Wow I wish I could answer that, but I can't because I'm a DDD and I haven't lost any of my boobs yet (I've lost about 30lb since this time last year). I have heard that you lose weight in the opposite order you put it on, though. So if that was the last to grow, it's the first to go. Sorry if I'm not help.
