Sexpert Q&A: Exercising My Breasts Away?

Dear Yvonne, Could my exercising affect my bra size? -Flora

Dear Flora, Breasts are made up of fat tissue. If a female is very physically active or loses a lot of weight, she may lose fat from her breasts. Playing sports and exercising in moderation does not prevent breasts from growing. Losing large amounts of weight and fat nearly always results in some reduction in overall breast size, but, if done through exercise, can increase the firmness of underlying muscles which can give them a sometimes much-needed 'lift.'
