Can I Lose Weight Without Losing My Bust?

Why weight loss can lead to the loss of a cup size -- and how strength moves can help prevent it.
Question: "I go down a cup size whenever I drop five pounds. How can I lose weight without losing my bust?"

Answer: 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: push-ups, planks, bench presses, and dumbbell flyes.
