My mom always said her kids ate her boobs. They grew during, but began to sag a lot after. So they may techincally be the same size as pre-baby, but were not as perky by far.

She recently had a lift and minor enhancement. (she is 59) They look better than mine and very natural! I am jealous.

From most of he women I know who have had babies are only happy during pregnancy and breast feeding and then post do not like the side effects.

Haha, was it the boob job thread? I know myself and a few others posted on that about shrinking boobs. The majority of my friends who’ve breastfed or been pregnant have smaller boobs now, smaller cupsize, deflated, saggy or some combo of that. I understand a lot more why women get boob jobs or lifts done after having kids now. I miss my old perky C cup everyday, sigh. I think it has to do with massive growth really fast so when you’re no longer nursing you have all this extra skin.

I heard it happens with pregnancy, and not breastfeeding.  But I had saggy boobs before I had babies, so I can’t really compare!

Yes my boobs went from Dirty Delete to small C’s , i was so happy when this happened i got to wear all the cool trendy clothes! Then i was in a wedding and the bridesmaid dress actually fit yay! but it has been two years and my boobs are making a definite come back :< now they’re full D

Some things to take into condiseration though are: i breastfed for 3 months, this was my first baby and i did loose all the baby weight so this may be why it took so long for my boobs to come back

They do tend to shrink yes, once your milk supply is done, your breasts tend to “shrink or sag” due to there is no more milk in them.

Yep for me… I was a respectable C pre-PG, a Dirty Delete during PG and while BF’ing, and now an A/B post.  Granted, I lost 40 lbs as well, but the combo left me lacking in the boob department.  Good news is now I don’t feel bad when I run out of the house without a bra on… so at least there’s that :/
