Brief Answer:
Weight loss is the reason

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I suspect the weight loss in you could be the reason for the shrinkage of your breasts. Breasts are made of 20% glandular tissue and 80% fat in nonlactating women When one loses weight, this can even drain the fat in the breasts too leading to their decrease in size.

Its is necessary for you to get evaluated for weight loss. There are many causes for weight loss a few of which are very serious and few are not. It is essential to correct the weight at the earliest. It not only improves breast size but also improves your overall health.

I Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
