Can anyone give me hope that my post-breastfeeding boobs will 'reinflate'?

Am feeling very unattractive. Post baby my figure has changed loads. I'm the same weight, but my bum is bigger (WTF?) and my boobs are tiny empty pouches. I can handle the big bum, but is it true that my boobs may fill out a bit? I stopped feeding in February. If not, I may have to consider a boob job!

Mine never did, sorry. I think other people have had more luck. It's not a given though.

mine came back champion grin . Slightly lower down than they had been before but they regained their volume after about eight months

My feet however, never went back but have remained splathery wide flappers angry

I was 41 as well so no spring chicken

Mine did. Took a while though, possibly as long as a year.

Mine did. Looked like deflated balloons for quite a while though, but about the same as pre DS 2.5 yrs after stopping feeding. I think it's mostly luck, but massaging the skin with lots of moisturiser and a few press ups won't hurt.

Mine didn't sad
Pregnant with dc3 now so enjoying having boobs again!

I'm the same size after as I was before, I'm a G cup though so perhaps that makes a difference?
They're quite q bit lower than before though.

Nope. They look like deflated balloons.
Sorry.
I am overall thinner tho! Lost any baby weight very easily and with a little bit of watching, have kept it off relatively easily. So far. <ominous drumroll> grin

Only with surgery 😁

Mine didn't sad waited a year nothing happened so had to pay 4K to have them filled back up X

They'll reinflate. Mine did.

Eat lots of fat though.

Mine did. DH says they're the same shape as before, but just feel different (softer, squidgier - less firm!).

Fuzzypeggy Tue 10-May-16 21:58:55

No reinflation here I'm afraid. Lost all fullness at the top

AgathaMystery Tue 10-May-16 22:02:17

Same as Peggy sad

JohnCheese Tue 10-May-16 22:04:08

Yip, lost fullness at the top.

Mine did.

I had a few months of utter shallow depression after stopping breastfeeding DC2. Even went for a free chat about a boob job (where they rightly told me to wait a year and then think again ).

In the meantime they came back and are now a 32DD (have lost a cup size) but just as perky as before. It did take a while but hang on in there!

bigbuttons Tue 10-May-16 22:10:28

Yes, I agree re losing fullness on top.

DinosaursRoar Tue 10-May-16 22:11:40

2.5 years since I stopped feeding DC2, still empty. sad can scoop them up into a bra but I hate them. I don't have £4k to get them refilled, so I'm stuck with them.

Nabootique Tue 10-May-16 22:11:44

Mine did but would also say a little less full at the top.

BabyGanoush Tue 10-May-16 22:12:08

Mine Came back a bit bigger and nicer (freak of nature) , but took 6 months to a year.

Went up a cup size (before babies a b, after breastfeeding a, now c)

JeffFromTheDailyMail Tue 10-May-16 22:13:14

Mine didn't. Will be purchasing new filling for them in due course

Mine never went down after breastfeeding. But then I never fully lost the baby weight, so maybe that's why.
