Breast Reduction: Large breast can cause significant discomfort and inconvenience. In many cases, breast reduction surgery is the most predictable method available to reduce breast volume and provide an aestheetic breast shape. No surgical methods, such as diet and exercise can help if you are over weight, but for congenitally large breasts, this does not always work.

Lose weight : Breast are mostly fat. Weight loss will lead to smaller breasts. If you are normal weight or have very large breast compared to the rest of your body consider surgical breast reduction.

Weight loss: Wright loss is about the only way to achieve no -surgical breast reduction. On occasion estrogen blockers such as tamoxifen have been used to dimish the effects of estrogen stimulation on breasts but this is not typically recommended for routine breast reduction.

Hard to do: Breasts are comprised mostly of fatty tissue and size depends on genetics and weight. The size of your breast, therefore, partially depends on the amount of subcutaneous fat you have. If you are above normal weight, then weight loss/fat loss will eventually lead to slightly smaller breast size. If you are normal weight, weight loss may not make a difference. Good sports bras can help with support.

There's no evidence: That this would provide any benefit in terms of size reduction. Sorry. Weight loss or breast reduction surgery are your best bets.
