Yes, depending on...: This depends on how much weight you lose and how fat is distributed in your body. If you lose just a few pounds it would probably not affect bra size. If you have large breasts and little weight elsewhere then losing much weight will reduce breast size. If you have fat hips/thighs/abdomen and small breasts then weight loss would more likely come from the fatty areas.

A 35-year-old female asked:
Can I lose a bra cup size when I lose weight?

Sure: People get bigger breasts when the become overweight or obese (breasts contain fat, milk-producing glands, and connective tissues). Likewise, people get smaller breasts when they lose weight. There is symmetry in nature. Otherwise, a person would look rather unusual, having a skinny body but huge breasts.
