    I never really even noticed mine growing because they are so small lol. I have worn the same size bra since age 13. They got a bit bigger in college but that was because I gained weight. I’m back down to my pre-college weight and my boobs are back down to their pre-college size.

    Lol my answer was going to be When I stopped gaining weight. But you say you’ve lost weight! So I can’t really help you. I think in my early 20s though was when my breasts stopped growing/wasn’t weight gain related.

    Ditto with PP, I’ve always been smaller, so going from a Small A to a larger A wasn’t very noticeable…in college I gained some weight and went up to a B and I noticed because I had to buy new bras, but other than that…can’t really help sorry :-

    Gosh i didnt realize they can keep growing.Good for you on the weight loss. Thats a lot of work.  I was a really early bloomer. They stopped when i was 12-13. (started when i was gosh in first grade. that was my frist real bra) I had C cups (on the verdge of D) By that age. I got teased a lot. But they stopped. My friend gained a lot of weight after high school and i know hers kept getting bigger and bigger because of it. I hope it works out for you. Were you on your period?? could they just be swollen? Have you gotten any back problems form those babies?

    I think…maybe around 21-22.

    Hard to remember though.  I remember I had B cups in late high school and early on in college.  But eventually I needed to buy Cs (I think I’m still a smaller C though honestly).  I definitely had the larger bras by the time I was 23.  I can’t wear Bs anymore.

    I think they’re still growing, but only because I’m still gaining weight, in general.

    Maybe 20? I remember as a teen I never felt like I had “real, adult boobs.” Then one day I realized I did, in fact, have a woman’s body.

    Mine kept growing into my mid 20’s, even with weight loss. One of my good friends seemed to keep getting bigger. She had a breast reduction, as did her sister, due to back pain and complications of having very large breasts. I know it may seem extreme, but they are much happier having it done.

    Mine stopped growing by the time I was 15-16 except when/if I gained weight.

    I’m 21, a G* cup and they’re still getting bigger.

    *I had DD’s by the time I was 15 and they’ve just kept growing – I really should be wearing a GG, if not an H.

    I’m considering a breast reduction as I’m only 5’4 and they’re seriously starting to affect my back, plus a lot of sports/exercise is not even an option as my breasts hurt so much during and after.

    The only thing I’m concerned about is breast feeding. I’m very pro breast feeding (you could almost say anti formula – except for cases where you absolutely cannot breast feed) so having a breast reduction, which could prevent me from breast feeding is something I am really, really struggling with.

    ETA: If I lose weight, they get bigger. If I maintain my weight, they get bigger. If I gain weight, they get bigger. Nothing helps.

    My boobs have continued to get bigger, but I’ve gained weight.  When I graduated from high school, I was 120lbs and 5’2″, now almost 10 years later I’m 135lbs… Some of that is in my boobs lol.

    it was probably right before i had reduction surgery two years ago. the size fluctuates with weight gain and loss though.

    Mine grew during my teen years (obviously) and I thought I was done by 19. When I went on the pill around 21, they grew almost an entire cup size. I’m now almost 30 and they’ve been the same bra size for about 3 years now. Minor weight fluctuations aren’t super noticeable. The only time they shrunk significantly was when I was deathly ill from a Crohn’s flare. But I lost about 20 pounds in a month so boobie shrinkage was to be expected. 


    @ZebraPrintMe:  have you started or changed your hormonal birth control lately?  That could explain the growing despite having lost weight. Congratulations on your weight loss!
