Post-pubescent breast growth?

Why would a mid-twenties woman's breasts suddenly grow, if unrelated to birth control or pregnancy?

My girlfriend (who lives overseas) recently arrived to stay with me for three months. In the one month that she's been here, her breasts have grown from roughly a B cup to a large C cup. They're feeling tender and a little sore sometimes.
She's not on any hormonal birth control, and had a period two weeks ago, so it's not related to pregnancy.
Our only theory is that since we're usually apart, and this is the first time in many months that she's been having sex so frequently, perhaps there's something hormonal going on that's causing her breasts to grow. That being said, we've been apart before and when we met up this hasn't happened then.
Is this something we should be worried about? Are they likely to return to their previous size at any point? Are they likely to continue growing? Any advice is much appreciated.
