I didn't really know the best place to post this. In the last month, I've gone from exclusively bf ds2, to mixed feeding, and am now only bf twice a day. I hope to continue this until about the end of the year, and whilst I've enjoyed feeding him, I can't wait to get rid of the nursing bras. The question is, how soon can I buy nice bras? (disclaimer: I know you can get nice nursing bras, but I don't want any more of them). I don't want to go out now and get some nice ones if I then have to get more in two months time if my breasts shrink. If I'm only feeding twice a day, are theylikely to change much, so can I get some now, or wait until I've completely stopped bf? Or do I even need to wait a couple of weeks after stopping?
(Ever since the s&b threads on bra sizing and no longer adding 4 or 5 inches to the band size, I've ben impatient to get out there and by a (non-maternity) bra larger than an A-cup.)
Watching with interest too... I fed DD for 18 months then got lumpy boobs for a couple of weeks. I then thought they had settled down and went and bought 4 nice bra sets only to find out I was pregnant so never got to wear them anyway.
I fed DD and DS until 10 and 11 months respectively, and to be honest I found that my boobs stayed the way they had got to towards the end of breastfeeding. The big fat norks I had in the early days had gone down to a D cup by the time they were weaned and they stayed there.
