Will my post bf boobs be forever considerably less perky than they were before?

Mine are fine - and I fed ds1 for 16 months and ds2 for 4 1/2 years.

My plastic surgeon told me seven years ago when I had a bilateral reduction, that it is because of pregnancy. It affects the elasticity of your body and all sorts, he said that breast feeding affecting breast shape was a myth smile

Yep, it was in the news a few years ago here.

I think everyone's different so there's no telling what will happen.

Too late if there is to be any difference it's the pregnancy bit not the breastfeeding bit that can cause relocation wink

Just lucky I think - from what I was taught (peer supporter) it's pregnancy that makes boobs sag, not whether you breastfeed or not. So as far as I can see there's no reason why stopping breastfeeding would make any difference.

Sorry!

That's it really.

I've noticed a couple of comments on threads over the past few weeks where the poster has said their boobs have perked up at some point after birth bf-ing.

Is this a 'thing' or are they just lucky?
