I just went up three bra sizes... why?

I've been 32B for the last 20 years. Now, in my late thirties, I'm suddenly a 32DD. What happened?

My breasts have been popping out of my old bras, so I went to get re-fitted. I found out that I'm three cup sizes larger than I've been since time immemorial. (I now require a 32DD bra in the *same brand and model* of bra that I used to wear in a 32B).
The change happened sometime over the last six months. I've gained perhaps five pounds in that time. FWIW, I had a hysterectomy three months ago, though I kept my ovaries and don't have any signs of menopause. I have never been pregnant. Both breasts have grown pretty equally in size though the one on my dominant arm's side is a tad bigger. And they're not tender and sore in a PMS-bloating kind of way, it's more of a permanent-feeling thing.
What could have caused this? Will it go away? I'm not excited about the prospect of having to buy a new wardrobe of blouses and tops (and expensive DD bras).
