Do your breast shrink when you lose weight?

Answer

A woman's breasts consist of fibrous, glandular, and fatty tissues. These tissues rest on top of the pectoral muscles that are attached to the breast wall. When a person loses weight due to exercise or illness, it is possible for one's breasts to appear smaller due to fat loss. It is the fat within the breast that provides a woman's breast its softness and uniformity. Sometimes, women feel that losing weight will cause their breasts to shrink or sag. However, it is the pectoral muscles that provide lift for the breasts. Incorporating strength training, specifically chest exercises, like a chest fly and assisted push-up, can firm up the major and minor pectoral muscles to provide lift and minimize any breast sagging due to weight loss.
