How long after stopping breast feeding did it take for your breast to return to previous size?

Hi, I stopped breast feeding last week and was just wondering how long it took for breasts to return to previous size? They are a cup size bigger than they were before I got pregnant, which didn't seem much until I tried an old bra on today and realised how much bigger they still are

ages about 6-8 weeks or so if I remember rightly?
Was 2 1/2 years age thought

However they are never truly as they were before!

Mine never returned to pre pg size, and believe me I could do without the Anne Widdicome bosom.

I am down to 2 feeds a day and mine are now smaller - this happened to me last time as well [anguished wail]

never sorry...
I grew at least a cup size after each of the boys.

Never - less firm and not the same size as dd2 preferred right one!

I went back to pre pregnancy size a month or so after stopping feeding dd but they felt really empty and floppy and looked smaller.

I'm kind of hoping they stay bigger when I stop feeding ds, I've got used to having something filling out my clothes a bit now!

Thanks everyone, am keeping all my fingers crossed that they return to previous size, am really struggling to find clothes to fit my H cup at the moment, if clothes fit across the bust they are massive elsewhere !!!!!!

sadly never, before dd1 i was a 34e after 34f then after dd2 a 34g! great! although at the peak of breast feeding they got up to a 36J

Never did. Was a c/d cup and am now an F.

They are never the same again.
