    Boobs... (question for women... )

    I figured that would get most of the guys attention... but I need a woman to answer this, probably.

    I'm 5'6, and range from 115 to 120 pounds. I'm currently trying to regain weight, because my boobs are just not what they used to be.
    I can't figure out if it's because of weight loss (though I weighed in the 117-122 range before I was pregnant. I gained to 145-150 when pregnant. It took a month to lose all the weight. My daughter is 10 months now, and I breastfed until she was 5 months. I would have gone longer, but it was impossible- stress), or because I'm more muscular than I was before.

    Question: Will upping my fat intake help get my boobs back to the size they were before? Was a 32 DD, now am a 32D... Is there anything I should eat? I know there's no such thing as targeted fat adding, or targeted fat losing... but any info would be good

    Thank you!

    Yes, as I've lost weight I've noticed my boobs getting smaller. Gaining weight would definitely pad things up. But seriously, 32D is nothing to cry about. I've been an A cup most of my life and I'm roughly your frame size.

    Sorry... no. It's all about genetics. Good job breastfeeding as long as you were able to! That will help, as they are meant to be used, and will actually stay firmer and more elastic than boobs that are merely decorative.

    Rather than trying to gain fat, do some targeted weight training for the chest/shoulders/back/pectorals. Firmer muscle will present the tissue overlaying it in a perkier fashion, which could make them look a bit bigger.

    I think I speak for all males when I say we're going to need pictures on this thread before we can help out with advice. Lots of pictures.

    I've dropped down to an A cup again after being overweight so long. I can't fit into any but stretch bras because of the muscular development on my chest. Works for me, whatever.

    haha. Thank you for the advice! I guess they just seem a lot smaller to me... Most people are usually like "are you sure you're a 32 D? You look smaller"... But that's what I measure at... so... They did look like 32DD's when they were though.

    And no pics! Nice try though! LOL

    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 same problem, I have a small ribcage so no one believes my cup size is what it is because it doesn't "look" like it. They don't realize cup size is relative band size. Its what fits though so Anyway, What Rae said!

    Sorry, but you can't spot add anymore than you can spot reduce.

    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.
