I am curious if anyone knows how much each bra cup size weighs? I am curious because i would like to know how much of me being overweight is due to my large breasts. Thank you for anyone who can tell me!

Interesting question!

I have read that the weight of an average medium size breast is between 1/2 and 1 kg (1.1-2.2 pounds). A large breast weighs between 1.7 and 2.2 pounds.

It varies a lot though, depending on the tissue composition (your glandular tissue and fat/adipose tissue).

I too, had very large breasts. 38DD. For years I had horrible back aches. My periods brought incredible breast tenderness and pain. I finally decided on a breast reduction in 2006. The Dr removed almost 6.5 lbs. I was not a really big person to begin with, so the reduction made a great difference. So, in answer to your question, YES! large breasts can add to your weight. BTW, I am sooooo happy with the breast reduction. It's like there was another person under all those boobs! Also, my insurance covered it because I was so large that they considered it a medical issue.
