if you are overweight, yes

AnswerYes it will. The lower the bodyfat percentage you reach, the faster the breasts shrink, since they are for the most part just fat. This is why you see some female bodybuilders sporting breast implants. What makes it worse is that there is little or no bodyfat to "hide" the edges of the implant, so they look even more fake. AnswerIt depends how "fatty" your breasts are to begin with. I have had a DD cup my whole life. I have gaind 6 sizes and lost 5 sizes and throught the only thing that shrank was the circumference of the body and there was less sagging. I still have the same cup size and they look exactly the same, except when I lost weight they perked up. If you don't want to lose the overall size, make sure you incorporate upper body strength toning in your exercises.

I think it's because your breasts can be different in terms of what makes up the breast tissue. If for example, your left breast is largely glands, and your right breast has more fat tissue, they can be even when you are at a certain weight and your breasts have a certain amount of fat. When you lose that fat, your right breast will shrink more than the left.

Nothing specifically as such. However, losing weight may make them smaller because breasts are largely made of fatty tissue.

This is hard to answer. With surgery now a days, they can make breasts extremely large! Plus, when a woman loses weight, her breasts shrink a little. When she gains weight, they grow a little. I've seen bra sizes to "G."

Just lose weight, breats are fat. I'm 14 and I'm 106 pounds but my breasts are C34 but that's because of genetics. I like having big boobs though ;)

You can try losing weight - breasts are mostly made of fat and often are the first place a woman loses weight. The only other alternative is surgery.
