Possibly.: It all depends on how much weight you lose. Exercise in and of itself will not reduce your breast size. However, if you lose a significant amount of body fat, it likely will. Your breasts are made of fatty tissue and will proportionately decrease in size along with other parts of your body as you lose body fat.

While weight loss: Through exercise will help some women reduce their breast size, many young women tell me that their breast size stays pretty much the same, despite weight changes. In that case, a surgical breast reduction may be the next step.

Sometimes: Breasts are composed of 2 things: fat and glandular tissue. If a woman loses weight overall, the amount of fat in her breasts diminishes also, so her breasts can appear/become smaller.

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.
