OK, completely vain question but when you stop breastfeeding just how bad do your boobs go? Was 34b before pregnancy, currently 34d (fantastic chachas!!!) and am scared witless that they are going to go like spaniels ears (as I've heard a few people say) cos my hubby is a real pert boobs man and I'm worried he'll go off me.

I am 42, I've breastfed two babies - one for 18 months - and while they aren't as pert as they used to be, I still have a fairly good pair of 34DDs. Don't worry too much.

I'm afraid mine went like the proverbial spaniel's ears, although that's probably because they're so big.

I'm sure your dh wouldn't go off you even if your boobs did droop a bit; he'd have to be pretty shallow.

It's pregnancy, not bf-ing that "ruins" your breasts apparently.

Well, I'll never pass the pencil test again - but OTOH, dh is now fascinated by the way he can (ahem) play with mine in a different way. So whether or not he misses my old pert C-cups I don't know, but he certainly finds plenty to enjoy in my very soft DD-cups.

Me too, Hausfrau ... dh still seems to like them though

And do they stay bigger than pre-pregnancy always? My mum's did, but my sister read that they drop a size from pre-pregnancy.

Sorry, did someone say ping-pong balls in a pair of support hose?

No? Just me then, I guess.

afraid to say my chubby son has bigger one's than me now..where did I put those chicken fillet things?...

Mine go like fried eggs in between feeding. You have to just keep on having babies.

Mine went like pitta bread for a bit, but then I put on another 5 kilo and they got perky again (well as perky as they ever were).

Either have another baby or get your dh to pay for a boob job.

Im still b/feeding and they've already made the journey south. I look like one of those tribes-women who have never seen a bra! Can't wait to get back in some underwired lovleys!

Mine are a bit droopier than they were, but I don't care cos they are a bit bigger than they were too!

twirlaround Mon 18-Jul-05 19:30:56

Smaller with stretch marks but still perky

Bf for a year and ended up a 36B instead of prepregnancy A - absolutely delighted! Hoping to make it to C this time round
And I'm 42!

flowerfairy Mon 18-Jul-05 20:10:21

Lucky you lot.

I was a32D pre-pregancy, now a slightly doopier 34b. Dh says they don't look any different and still likes them

Ruthiebaby Mon 18-Jul-05 21:11:48

LOL !! I'm with you likklemum. They're definately on that road !

Also can't wait to get back into my underwired wonderbras !!!

fqueenzebra Mon 18-Jul-05 21:15:45

Age 37, Baby 3 is now 1yo and they are (asking DH ask I type..."no different" he says.

mandyc66 Mon 18-Jul-05 21:49:11

he wont go off you..he didnt just marry your boobs after all!!! mine lost pert I must say..but not sure they ever were!!!!
I was told if I wore a good bra they would get their umph back!!!!

mandyc66 Mon 18-Jul-05 21:54:14

its when you have to lift them up so baby can find the nipple!!!

Mytwopenceworth Mon 18-Jul-05 22:00:02

i used to have big bouncy ones (my pride and joy!) 2 hungry children later and i now have to watch my step or i tread on my nipples. although there is a bright side to everything, i now no longer have to hunt for a scarf in cold weather.
btw, i dont think men care, they are just ridiculously grateful if you let them play.

mandyc66 Mon 18-Jul-05 22:11:00

you can roll them up and put them in your bra so there looks more!!!
Did you ever see Victoria wood about after having babies and she said go up stairs with baby over one shoulder and boobs over the other!!!
