To ask about your boobs?

What happened to the after you finished breastfeeding?
Did they go up, down a size, get perkier or sag down to your knees?
Just curious as to whether I should bother keeping all my old bras in case I shrink back to my normal size or go and buy bigger ones now i have boobs the size of bloody footballs. I'm living in maternity bras at the moment

B cup and perky before kids
D cup while breast feeding
C cup and slightly saggy when I finished

I discovered how to measure them properly so now wear a smaller band size and lower cup although don't think that's to do with stopping breastfeeding.

Overall they're pretty much the same as they were before I breastfed.

I don't know if it was pregnancy/BF/getting older but mine were affected quite a lot!!

Basically bigger and saggier than pre DC, stayed pretty much the same size when I stopped BF

I'm up 3 cup sizes, but still feeding at 18m. Don't think their going anywhere but closer to the ground!

DD cup before breastfeeding.
HH cup during.
GG after with some saggyness on top of the breast plus wrinkles and stretchmarks.

Never breast fed as chose not to. Didn't enjoy being pregnant and wasn't going to have DS hanging off my breasts once born.

Breasts were large before conception and pretty humungous during and after.
Breasts still on the large side but full and only sag a bit due to gravity at my age.

Pretty much the same size after breastfeeding. I couldn't tell a difference.
Shape has changed as I get older, which is to be expected (my eldest is now 18yo).
I imagine main reason people change bra size is to do with losing/gaining weight compared to their pre-pg weight, or just plain getting older.

I breastfed 3 DCs for between 6-10 months each.

D cup before pregnancy & bf,
C cup and nowhere near as firm now sad hmm

Double A before, Up to a C post partum and breastfeeding, and back to a double A after.

Of course they're different now but they've done their job. Keep your bras, they hardly take up any room.

Mine were DD before pregnancy, never changed size during pregnancy or bf, except for the brilliant benefit that they lost a tiny bit of volume meaning they fit into size 12 shirts which they never did before, so much better than gaping buttons! After 2+ years bf ds and about to start again soon with dc2 they still look pretty much the same.

Breastfed DS for 10 months, mine are the same as they were before I think, no noticeable change.

GemmaB78 Sun 24-Sep-17 17:21:50

B/C before pregnancy. DD whilst bf for 15 months. Back to a C. Slightly sagging but still pretty good!

I think pregnancy has a bigger effect on breasts than breastfeeding.

Before pregnancy I was perky B.
After kids and 7 years of breastfeeding a softer B.

Greyhorses Sun 24-Sep-17 17:41:16

Pre pregnancy a very full B/C

2 years post pregnancy I would be lucky to be an A sad

mirime Sun 24-Sep-17 17:44:24

B before pregnancy. Went up to something like an E when pregnant. Back down to a C now, I think. Should probably get measured again.

None of my lovely pre-pregnancy bras fit anymore.

FittonTower Sun 24-Sep-17 17:44:31

Fed 2 babies back to back for a total of about 4 years. Was a small, A cup before and I'm a B now - not that saggy either but there's not a lot of em to sag even now they've gone up a size.

ditzychick34 Sun 24-Sep-17 17:51:33

This thread has reminded me; anyone know where the best place/company to send old bras is? They have life left in them but will never fit me again! I have a lot and would like to do more than ragbag them

TammySwansonTwo Sun 24-Sep-17 18:18:28

Mine haven't really changed size, slightly saggier but not massively. However, my whole body has changed shape, I've gained weight that will not shift despite being 100x more active now than before, and I'm much bigger round the back so the old ones are way too tight.

BeALert Sun 24-Sep-17 18:26:19

Unchanged even after breastfeeding 3 children and reaching my late 40s.

Being slightly overweight helps...

PlayOnWurtz Sun 24-Sep-17 18:29:17

A cup before pregnancy
H cup during pregnancy
Didn't breast feed
H cup well over a decade later

BubbleAnimal Sun 24-Sep-17 18:29:48

Barely changed tbh. 34E ish before pregnancy. Up to a massive GG during. Now a 34/36 E/F depending on the bra and my weight. Boobs aren't noticeably saggier or anything either. Then again, being bigger they always were more droopy than a perky B cup.

Shockers Sun 24-Sep-17 18:32:38

They were tiny before, huge during, then tinyish again afterwards, with a few stretch marks. They stayed pretty pert though.

MrsTerryPratchett Sun 24-Sep-17 18:34:18

Don't they say that it's the pregnancy that affects the breasts, not the BFing?

Natsku Sun 24-Sep-17 18:35:38

Stayed the same size but my nipples point in different directions now (one up one down)
