    Also, don't pay attention to what other people think. I had the exact opposite situation as you before gaining weight. Shop attendants never believed I was only a B cup because I have a large rib cage. I heard something along the lines of "Well I suspect you have the wrong size. Many women wear the wrong size and don't know it. Let me measure you so we can get you into a better fitting bra"
    Then after I let them do it the size the recommended based on measurement was the exact one I had on.
    Yup! Nobody understand what band size means.

    I have a very narrow frame and normal sized boobs- I am a 28C. It's not a thing a lot of companies stock, sadly. It's rib cage + breast size that determines your cup....a 40+D or DD cup lady might not be all that big busted, whereas a 28DD would be the most painful thing in the world.

    To the best of my knowledge and experience, boobs are never the same after breast feeding. I have had four, and breast fed all four, just not super long, and mine are just not as "full" as before, and my child-bearing/breast-feeding acquaintances all say the same thing. Close, but no cigar. I finally just decided to concentrate on the fact that I did what was right for my kids by breast feeding and the fact that I have them at all, bittier boobs be damned.
    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

    I figured. Already knew all about that. No such thing... but I have hope it'll just go where I want.

    I am a small cup size too - used to be bigger but at that time my health was not good, don't eat extra fat - fresh live raw fruits and vegatables (lots of variety for nutrients), some raw nuts/seeds, are all that is needed, this along with some avocado, soaked raw almonds, olives will be good for your general health and hormonal glands; then any part of you wil respond naturally given a little time; not necessary to focus on just one part of body. Love all of yourself and walk tall, others will respond and notice as you are happy with what you have.

    I have a large rib cage and small breasts. I have never been able to find a bra that fits. I always have to wear sports bras.

    That's because most people are wearing the wrong size bra...they have no clue what a real D cup looks like. My SIL refused to wear bigger than a C cup because she "couldn't possibly" be that big. even though she was spilling out in all directions. I'm from a 34F to a 36H, depending on brand and style. You can't buy those in a department store. So women make do with incorrectly fitting store bras, instead of paying a little more and going to a proper lingerie store.

    I have the opposite problem. And I can never find a sports bra that fits.

    My niece at 15 or 16 was a 30H or 28I, and about 5'2". Poor thing thankfully got a reduction and now sits around a 30D. Its really hard for teenager who want to dress like everyone else, yet they cant shop in the same stores without looking like a porn star.

    It isn't the weight loss that took out your boobs, it was the breastfeeding. Fat is displaced by actual functional milk-making breast tissue, which deflates when not in use: Think average dairy animal, which, unfortunately, we are.
