I did after dc1, although they were a different shape (hate to use the word saggy, but...). After dc3 am now same across the back but a cup smaller than pre children. Took about a year this time for my back and hips to go back though.

I went back to my pre pregnancy size of 32E after stopping breastfeeding

I went from a B to a D cup (they didn't really deflate after I finished feeding). I'm now feeding ds2 and they've grown again so no idea what I'll be after.

Was looking on the bra sizing thread on here and going by the new sizes (don't add 4" to the underneath measurement) I'm currently a 32FF! I'm wearing a stretchy nursing bra in 34DD and busting out of it a bit but I'm planning to stop in three months when he hits 1 so won't get any more bras.

I'm quite looking forward to getting some new bras when I stop.

My cup size went back but I went down from a 34 to a 32. I can still wear my 34s on the tightest hook though.

Went down from 32E to 30F after pregnancy/breastfeeding.

I went back to the same bra size after both pregnancies but I think that's a spooky coincidence because irl all my friends are slightly different sizes pre and post pregnancy.

Once I'd finished feeding I'd gone down a back size and up a couple of cup sizes; I didn't go back to the same overall weight though...

I went up a back size and down a lot of cup sizes after DS was born shock but then my feet went up a shoe size as well.

I used to be a 30E which ballooned when I got pregnant, then I breastfed and shrunk to respectable 32C afterwards. I miss my pre-preg boobs but on the up its been a lot easier bra shopping at a 32C, 30E was a nightmare to buy for.

Even though my boobs shrunk they didn't go south on me grin so I'm happy with 32C.

Mine shrunk back down to an E after going up from E to F/G in pregnancy. They are a slightly different shape though so needed new bras anyway!

Im wondering whether ill fit back into any of my pre-pregnancy bras after ive given birth, breast fed etc. Has anyone else been able to wear their pre-baby bras again? Or am i likely to need bigger ones forever?!
