I know how you feel. When I first started losing weight, I thought I might actually lose some of the weight in my boobs. My bra size changed but only because my band size decreased. I haven't lost any inches in my bust. I'm short (5 foot even) and busty. I can find the correct band size but it seems that stores don't go up high enough in cup size.
I understand the pain too. I am at a point where I could start to run but because I lack a truly supportive bra, it is just too painful.
What does your exercise routine look like? I assume that you are doing both cardio and strength training. The cardio is the problem. I use the cardio equipment at the gym. If I am away from the gym, I will go for a walk (and vary the speed and distance walked) or a hike. I will also incorporate some workout dvd's (Billy Blanks Taebo dvd's - not all Taebo but are awesome workouts).
If you're at a gym try using the elliptical, treadmill, rowing machine, and stationary bike. If the stationary bike is too difficult or too uncomfortable at first, start with the recumbent bike. I actually avoided the bike for awhile because I didn't like having my knees hitting my abdominal fat. I had been using the gym for about 9 months before I went to the stationary bike. Now, I'm using the spinning bike. With the treadmill, you can do a search on Google for various workout routines that will definitely get your heart pumping. The elliptical is nice too easy on the joints and you can go a little faster. It's the machine I used the most when I first started working out. The rowing machine is great. I absolutely love it and it is a great full body workout. You can definitely feel it in your abs and lower back. You'd probably want someone to show you how to use it (proper form). I mention all of these things because you can do something different each time you do cardio and it's not too hard on the boobs. I use or have used the equipment that I mentioned.
The best thing that I can suggest is to look for a regular bra that offers support (the band) and can hold the girls in place (full coverage - or whatever it's called - where it covers all of your boobs). That's what I have been doing. I'd get a sports bra but I can't find any in my cup size (DDD). I can find the correct band size but not cup size. I swear, it's like companies think that if you are top heavy that my band size can't be as small as it is.
I don't know what else to tell you right now but I hope I've helped some.
I hope that helps.
