  • Pole and breast size

    Posted by Meleania on March 26, 2010 at 6:22 am

    Ok, this has been on my mind for awhile now…does pole dancing cause small boobs? It seems like the vast majority of the competitive pole dancers ive seen have small breasts unless they are either overweight (myself included) or have implants. My boobs have gotten alot smaller over the course of losing 50 lbs, they have gone from a 40D to a (just tried on bras today) 34DD. Even though thats still a really big size, since my boobs used to be alot bigger, even at this size they still are they are starting to sag from the weight loss https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_sad.gif I would rather have perky b or c cups (which is what I had before i gained a bunch of weight) than a saggy double D. For 3 months I went without a pole, during that 3 months my boobs did not shrink AT ALL even though I still lost 20lbs in that time frame. I do a few pole sessions, and BAM my bra cup was too big, which is why i went bra shopping today. Now do the pole competitors have small boobs because pole dancing burns so much fat there is no fat on their body left to burn it from except their boobs? for example…one time my friend lost alot of weight, she lost it from everywhere but managed to keep her large breasts, but then she kept doing a ton of cardio and losing more weight and burned off all her chest she had, which was the only place left for her body to lose weight from. Or is it because of all the upper body strength that is required for pole dancing? for example…since late december i haven’t had my pole That whole time my exercise was doing the elliptical (which my butt and hips shrank rapidly faster after I started using it compared to before) and an insane amount of abdominal exercises every day. My stomach has lost the most inches over the last year from doing all the sit ups and what not. So.. if my stomach shrinks from doing sit ups, and my butt/hips/thighs shrink from doing the elliptical, will my chest shrink from pole dancing?? and yes i know as i lose weight everything will get smaller but will pole exasperate the problem? NOT that I have a problem with small boobs! but if they get any smaller my boobs will be like deflated water balloons that i will need plastic surgery to fix. I dont want to feel guilty thinking that im shrinking my boobs from pole dancing..

    Oh my lovely upon reading I wanted to give you a big hug!
    I wish I had an answer! I’m not an extremely strong pole dancer so I can’t say what happens after, but so far I haven’t found my boobs shrinking at all!
    I’m a 32G and I personally have found that the muscles I develop from pole dancing actually helped perk mine up!
    It sounds to me like as your underbust has lost 6 inches (congrats by the way really great going https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif) but your cup size has stayed the same it’s probably just the usual weight loss!
    But whilst saying that I am expecting any second for all the really experienced dancers to come on and say "yea it does shrink your boobs" and me to get as worried as you! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_eek.gif

    each body loses weight differently. its how our genetics do it. I know w/me ive lost my bust as well (last year I was a 46f – I just had a baby and was attempting to breastfeed, currently a 42dd) Mine have perked up a bit after doing pole and chest exercises. I would like mine to be a bit smaler but they still look like two sausages after having 2 kids.

    I’m no personal trainer or fitness guru but I do know that when we lose weight we can not control where we lose it. The only way I’ve found to alter the shape of my body when I lost weight is by weight training, but that being said….there’s no weights you can lift for boobage LOL. We can work on our pectoral (chest) muscles that help with perkage but as far as inflating the balloons, there’s no real solution for that.

    In my personal experience and from the dancers I know, pole dancing doesn’t cause boob shrinkage specifically. It does cause weight loss, which indirectly causes boob shrinkage but that’s about it.

    I have always been in the itty bitty titty committee so I can’t really empathize with you https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_sad.gif

    In my eyes you still have a pretty nice set of jugs, even after the loss of cup size https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_tongue.gif

    Hey there…jeeze, if I could lose a size or so, I’d be fine! Mine are getting bigger! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_scratch.gif I have heard that they don’t stop growing ’till you’re 25, so I’ve got another year to do…and I’ll probably reach somewhere around a 34E. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_neutral.gif They’re hard to deal with.
    I’ve heard that your pectoral muscles (I think??) keep them up well. So, the ones in the front of the chest, that also connect over to the arms, creating your armpits. Those ones are good for that kind of thing, I think. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cheers.gif

    Also, I agree with Sissy, they’re nice. Not to worry. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

    Hehe, Sakura, I think it really depends on your heritage and your hormones. See, my hormones are insane, so they like to give me huge hips and huge breasts. I also have a farmer-family heritage, so my body thinks I should have had like, three children by now https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_razz.gif
    Probably not, but that’s what I think! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cat.gif
    Honestly, though, I’ve heard of girls finishing their "growth" at the age of 13, whereas mine STARTED at 16, so I had a bit of a slow start. I don’t think you have anything to worry about! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif

    I know how your feel, I was a c cup in middle school. Im a dd. I really need to go get a bra fitting, its been over a yr. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_confused.gif Its like as soon as you hit a particular size, the price sky rockets, dont carry your size or there are no fun ones!

    I have found fun ones from fruit of the loom, they go up to a dd! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cheers.gif

    Ahh, ladies, I wish I could fit most DD bras! I’m pretty lucky I have someone who’s been doing bras for years, so she knows exactly what she’s looking for when she finds me bras. Still, I’ll get a bra somewhere else, and they don’t fit me at all. I’m hovering on the edge of E, and once I reach that…I’m screwed! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_redface.gif

    Lol, I’m sorry…feel like I kind of threadjacked this one! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_rolleyes.gif

    My sister constantly complains about that. She’s a 38 D and has the hardest time finding bras that don’t look like something our grandma would wear. I have ittsy bittsy little A cups, so I don’t have that problem, but I have noticed a distinct lack in pretty bras in the bigger sizes when I go lingerie shopping.

    It’s not pole dancing per se that is the reason why these women have small breasts, but if you notice, the women who compete are all very strong athletes–a lot of them are quite muscular. When you train intensively and build up muscle like that, you likely have a pretty low body fat percentage, which generally translates to smaller boobs. For instance, I’ve been working out since I was 14 (I’m now 23) and have always heavily emphasized strength training, particularly upper body training. (Maybe I knew I was going to get into pole one day. Heh.) Consequently, I’m pretty athletic-looking–I have pretty muscular arms for a small girl, as well as being fairly heavily muscled in the stomach. I also don’t have a whole lot of body fat–I don’t know the exact percentage, but I would guess it’s quite a bit under average. And as you read above, I’ve got tittles.

    Now, I may have ended up with small boobs anyway, because my mom has very small breasts, and I took after her body build, whereas my sister took after my dad’s side of the family, but I’ll never know for sure since I’ve been so active pretty much my whole life.

    Take a look at female sprinters, who are all pretty muscular for women–they usually have pretty small boobs too, unless they’ve got implants. Same for other women athletes who are similarly built. Lots of lean muscle mass = low body fat percentage = a tendency toward smaller boobs. It’s not always the case, of course, but it’s pretty rare to see a really athletic/muscular women with large natural breasts.

    I know! This is a constant rant of mine! As soon as you hit DD cup boom extra £25! It’s so sad. The only place I’ve found I can buy bras from is bravissimo or another one i can’t remember the name of but that’s really expensive too! It’s sad. I have a couple from ann summers but they only have two styles in bigger sizes (so you know I bought them both). Wish there was more variety for us bigger boobed ladies!

    This is going to sound awful but have you looked in M&S? It’s pretty much the only place I’ve seen bras with big cups and smaller band sizes, and some of them look decent. I’m a D cup and sometimes go there when I need a plain and reliable bra. There isn’t much variety lingerie-wise in York https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_sad.gif

    Hey girls if someone could give me a little bit, I would be more than happy to get mine bigger https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif In fact I really hope they won’t go any smaller because after breastfeeding my 2 boys I don’t have much left (34B) and I don’t want to end like an ironing board https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_lol.gif

    34 B isn’t bad at all; I have 36 A’s and I just look on the bright side and figure they’ll stay perkier a lot longer. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_lol.gif
