How to Lose Weight While Maintaining Chest Size
How can I lose weight without shrinking my chest size?
Submitted by FitnessEditor

One of the little-known upsides to carrying a tad bit of extra weight is that glorious cleavage that diverts attention from your butt. Sadly, when you're shedding fat, you don't get to keep what you want and send the rest packing, says Michele S. Olson, PhD, a professor of exercise science at Auburn University in Montgomery, Alabama. The good news is that even if you're losing inches from your chest, you can keep it looking lifted by adding regular strength moves into your routine.

Olson suggests the following exercises to boost your bust: push-ups, planks, bench presses, and dumbbell flyes.

Breast augmentation is the only answer. I can shed pounds and my breast only get larger as my mid section gets smaller.

@copayextra, not really a mystery. i think a lot of that has to do with medication. birth control really helps keep around the same cup size, even with weight loss.

i think this is one of those weird mysteries that none of us will ever understand. it seems counterintuitive especailly when there are skinny women who exercise and keep their same cup size.
