Hi all, I'd love to hear your stories if anyone's been lopsided from breastfeeding. I've been breastfeeding for 7 months and my breasts are now very different sizes - before the baby I was a 34AA blush, now I am probably 38B on one side and 38D on the other sad.

I've done all the obvious things like putting baby on the small breast first, expressing from small breast, speaking to 2 breastfeeding helplines (including LLL) who told me not to worry about it as it's natural etc. A few months have passed and none of it made much difference, one breast is just enthusiastic and the other is grudging. Huh.

But now as the baby begins to go on solids and my breasts are getting more saggy, I'm starting to wonder - will they ever be the same size as each other again? Currently I look ridiculous naked and don't fancy never being able to wear a bikini again.

Hmmmmmm. Honestly?? Probably confused

Both my dc's preferred my right side. I did try to express from the other etc but they were significantly lopsided.

It's been over 3 years since I stopped feeding and the good news is they're nowhere near as noticeably lopsided. The right is however about half a cup size bigger I reckon.

Pesky kids!

no they'll even up.

i thought my breasts would never recover from pregnancy/feeding. but over the last couple of years they've got a LOT better (now 4 yrs since my last baby)

Mine went back to normal. I had to wear balconette bras as I just fell out of a plunge front on one side.
