I had a similar problem, but it had nothing to do with birth control!  LOL.  I guess my body just got all excited about getting married and the girls perked up!  I got rid of my bra too, and voila, like a glove.

So frustrating!  I had been on a generic BC, and hated what it did to my body — making me feel much fatter in spots where I’d normally been trim.  I switched back to my (considerably more expensive) brand name pill several months ago, and am much happier now!

I’ve had that same problem with birth control. My boobs have grown a full cupsize. There are so many pretty dresses that I’d love to try, but I don’t want to look boob-tastic.

Congrats on losing 8 lbs though. 🙂

YES! I was a very straightforward size 6 when I was trying on dresses while on the pill (like, fit the measurements EXACTLY and would probably have needed no alterations at all!), but I stopped seven weeks ago and when I tried on dresses with my mom yesterday, I was in between sizes. 🙁 Suddenly the 4 fits the bust perfectly, while my waist and hips are both 1/2″ bigger than the size 4. I was so disappointed. Couldn’t I have just dropped the tummy when I quit the pill, instead of my boobs? 😉

Maybe Spanx can get the girls in order? Also, it could be just water weight, maybe a diauretic? (NOT healthy, but could work in a pinch!) Maybe a low-carb diet would help you lose a few pounds fast. BC is such a pain! Good Luck!

I had that problem with my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress! I was on the fancy schmancy brand name version because my doctor had a whole box of trials – over a year’s worth – that she just gave to me a few months before my fitting. I hadn’t had any dramatic weight gain, maybe two or three pounds, but I guess my boobs got way bigger from the generic brand I switched over once I ran out of the samples. I, too, had to ditch the bra at the last moment. No big, and the dress was boned and you couldn’t see anything. But still, stupid BC!
