Hi Barbara - some women do find that their breasts get bigger after the menopause. It's because of hormonal changes which affect the way your body stores fat, so if you put on any weight, some of it is stored in your breasts as well as around your midriff.
You might find that if you lost some weight, some of it would go from your breasts. Stick to a healthy diet and make sure you get plenty of exercise.
You could also work to minimise the look for your boobs - a different style of bra could make a difference and it would be worth going to a store that offers a bra-fitting service and trying on some different types. The clothes you wear will also have an effect on the way your boobs look - again, why not go to a store with a wardrobe adviser and try on some different styles.
