When the back pain is too much even when not carrying a backpack, the curious turn to the question “how much do my breasts actually weigh?” It might be awkward to just throw them on a scale (and inaccurate besides). Fortunately, there are a few other methods, though they may seem no less awkward.

The most intuitive method is just guessing by cup size. It won’t always be the most accurate method, because of course breasts are each made differently. Shape, size, and even two women with the same cup size may have breasts which weigh differently. The measurements below (breast weight by cup size) were calculated using the average underwire size and the cup diameter of the more common US sized bra brands.

Bra sizes 32A, 30B, 28C = about 0.5 pound per breastBra sizes 34A, 32B, 30C, 28D = about 0.6 pound per breastBra sizes 36A, 34B, 32C, 30D, 28E = about 0.7 pound per breastBra sizes 38A, 36B, 34C, 32D, 30E, 28F = about 0.9 pound per breastBra sizes 40A, 38B, 36C, 34D, 32E, 30F, 28G = about 1.2 pounds per breastBra sizes 42A, 40B, 38C, 36D, 34E, 32F, 30G, 28H = about 1.5 pounds per breastBra sizes 44A, 42B, 40C, 38D, 36E, 34F, 32G, 30H, 28I = about 1.7 pounds per breastBra sizes 44B, 42C, 40D, 38E, 36F, 34G, 32H, 30I, 28J = about 2 pounds per breast

The water displacement method is a bit more awkward, but perhaps the most accurate way to weigh your breasts.

Okay lets start with what you"ll need:

A kitchen scale A tray with a sizable lipA large bowl(has to be big enough to fit one of your breast)A pad and pen(you"ll have to do a little math)A towel

Okay now were ready let"s give it a try:

Step 1: Measure the weight of the trayStep 2: Put the bowl on the tray and fill bowl with water completely to the rim(Use a glass or cup to fill the bowl)Step 3: Now place you breast in the bowl of water, make sure it is fully submerged. Your boob will push out the water onto the trayStep 4: Take just the tray with the water that your breasts pushed onto it and weigh itStep 5: Subtract the weight of the tray with the water with the weight of just the tray and we are almost doneStep 6: Now take that weight you just figured and multiply by 0.9 Why you may ask?....Because breast tissue has a different weight by volume then waterStep 7: Repeat for you other boob if you like. (Remember your breasts are different sizes)

Some amount of pain from heavy breasts is natural. For instance, women with heavier breasts tend to experience more back pain -- there"s more to carry!

Fortunately, there are ways to help lessen some of the pain and stress from heavy breasts. Finding a strong and supportive sports bra for larger breasts is a MUST!!!
