In brief: BULEMIA BREASTS
Breasts are impacted by Estradiol [e2] ovarian estrogen, estrone [e1 or fat estrogen, progesterone, 16-oh-fat estrogen which may increase cancer and 4-oh-estrone.
Some of these can be directly measured. Most pms or pdd can be helped by natural progesterone. If you are very thin, you may need a patch of estrogen day 1- ? Since you need some estrogen to make a uterus lining.

In brief: Absolutely
If the bulimia is severe enough to cause hypocaloric malnutrition, fat tissue will diminish rapidly.
Breasts are mostly fat tissue, so they will diminish in proportion the malnutrition.
