up and down

I have never fully developed, I was very active in weight lifting and throwing the shot put so, I never had enough fat in that area to grow any. So about one week after surgery I noticed wow I almost fill in a bra that my dm bought me, and now it is back to normal. I was wondering if anyone knows where I might be able to find a 42A cup, it is like finding a needle in a haystack. and I am very tired of the sports bras. it would be nice to get to show them off to my dbf.Hope everyone else is having fun with their changes.
God Bless

I have never heard of a 42A cup, sorry. I have heard of 36, and in the larger cup sizes 38. Wish I had your luck though!

Yes, I have gone up a size!!

I have had probs with my B cup bras digging into me and my boobs nearly falling out! Had my boobs measured yesterday, was shocked to hear that I needed new bras. New bras today from Marks and Spencers no less! and I am now in a C cup. Hubby is well impressed, I am 5 months post op. Need to lost afew pounds though. Not so sure I like these boobs they are a bit sore and tender, oh, and I kept my ovaries. Get quite tearful sometimes, very hormonal!

Here's a shocker for those of you who have never heard of a 42A - I am a 42G and I could not believe it myself but I was measured by someone trained in fitting masectomy patients - believe me, she knows what she is doing. It's horrible to find bras in my size and finding clothes that fit is a challenge, too.

I had a BSO and am not taking hormones due to a sister with breast cancer. I am delighted "the girls" are smaller. They don't get "rigid" anymore either which they did once a month even though I am post menopausal.

I know I shouldn't have complained about being a C cup, it's hardly massive! but big enough for me, especially when I'm short anyway! but 42G! huge! when I had my son I suddenly became a 40A and yet my boobs seemed huge after the birth. I'll never understand bra sizes. Good to hear that yours don't get 'rigid' anymore and sorry to hear you have a sister with breast cancer. I wish you both well.

Tbanks, hutchies. For a long time, I thought I was a "C" cup, which I thought was plenty big enough until another one of my sisters - the person I mentioned who was trained in masectomy fittings - measured me. I don't understand bra sizes, either, although she carefully explained to me the basis for my measurement because I did not want to believe the results. And I have to admit the bras do fit better and make my bustline look better.I have lost some weight since surgery and hope that the more I lose, the girls will reflect that, too. Guess I should not be surprised at my size because my first bra - when I was 10 years old - was a 32A!

Thanks too for the concern about my sister with breast cancer. It's been 7 years since her diagnosis with no recurrence or metastizing (bad speller!) but she refuses to give up smoking - drives me nuts.

Re: What about your breast size since surgery???

An update: I last posted here on Jan, 2007. I was a 38D then. I am still taking estrogen and now, another 3.5 years later I have grown to a wopping 38G!. Where does this end? Starting to wonder seriously about the estrogen and if I had a reduction, would they keep growing if I continue to take estrogen?
