Ladies I need your help to make sure I'm not going crazy here. So, for most of my life I've been a member of the IBTC (I was still in a 24A at 26!). Then,I got married had some health issues, gained some weight (30lbs in 6 months) and before I knew it I was rocking a 34DD. (Yeah surprised the heck out of me too.)
So, fast forward about 12 years and 40 more lbs later, I decide to get serious about getting into shape and losing this weight. About a month ago, I started working out everyday, doing at least 5k steps (now up to 10k daily) and at least 30 mins of core, yoga or pilates. When I started this regimen, I was wearing a 36DD. Now, I notice my bras are loser but the cups seem too small. And, for the first time I keep feeling like the girls are in the way when I do certain movements like clapping. I havent been professionally sized yet, but I know there's some changes going on around here.
Has anyone else heard of or experienced anything like this?
If your boobs are still the same size but the measurement under your breasts is smaller your bras won't fit anymore. The cup size is the difference between your bust measure and your under bust measure. The bigger the difference, the bigger the cup size. So it might not be your boobs getting bigger but the rest of you getting smaller while they are the same size as before.
For instance, I'm a size 85F (European size). If I go down to a size 80 or 75 without losing breast volume (lol) I will have to go up a cup size or two. This is also why finding your optimal bra size is so difficult.
