My boobs have all but disappeared! I developed early and was a B/C cup by middle school. Before I got pregnant with DS, I was a 36D. I got up to a 38DD/E when I was nursing. Now all of my bras are too big. I’m pretty sure I’m a 34B now. I have to get new bras soon, because the 36 band size on all my pre-preg bras is too loose. It wouldn’t be as bad if they were a bit more perky, but post-breastfeeding has left them hanging a little low. Though it is nice not having to worry as much when I’m running. Darling Husband is disappointed and says he can’t wait until I get pregnant again so my boobs come back.

One of my friends had the same large fluctuation in breast size betwixt the pregnancy and post pregnancy boobs. She ended up getting a reasonably sized breast implant. Hers looks so incredibly natural because the skin had already done the growing thing and nothing was stretched.
I can tell you I’m not looking forward to pregnancy boobs, lol.

I was heartbroken to discover that my boobs, which have ALWAYS been the same size no matter what weight I was, went down to a B when I lost weight before the wedding. Even though they haven’t gone back up yet with the pregnancy, I’m loving (as is DH) how much more full they are. I’ll be upset when they lose their shape again after.

Are you thinner than you were before you got pregnant?

@kaylee26: yes, I have lost about 30 pounds from my wedding weight.

Ha I hear ya! I was always a generous 34B, then got up to 36D while breastfeeding. Back to my 34B now, sometimes a 34C even… But they feel emptier and smaller to me. I don’t know how to describe it. They don’t sag or anything.. But they don’t feel full.
I definitely prefer my small breasts than the 36D though! I’m a runner as well and hated running with the boobs, it hurt!

Congrats on the weight loss 🙂 but I’m sorry about the boob loss 🙁
This is precisely the reason I’m thinking about not even trying to lose weight and just rely on corsets and spanx lol
On the bright side though, your back must feel more unburdened now

Yeaah I’m in the same boat. I was always in a 36c since 9th grade. Mind you I was really thin as well at 105 pounds and 5’9. My chest was abnormally big for my frame. I get pregnant gain some weight and shot up to 38Dirty Delete for a long time. Lost the weight and ended up down to a 32 (barely)B.
But I’ve gained 20 pounds and my chest has gone back to the 36C, granted I’m quite a bit bigger than I was as a teen, my chest is back! (Kind of, just not as nice as they used to be)
I’m working on building a workout routine to loose the weight I’ve gained (20lbs) and am refusing to do any upper body work, hoping my chest will stay somewhat the same. My wedding is in April and my chest looks great in my dress, I’d hate to have to take the chest in on the dress, I’m afraid it just wont look as great 🙁
I’m with you on that. Post baby boobs are not much fun. I’ve had to go bra shopping many times since I had my child because they all get too small or end up too big… Blah

@mrstilly: 🙁 this happened to me when I lost 25 pounds too. I’m young but my boobs don’t look young.
I would consider a lift or even maybe augmentation (I live in the plastic surgery capital of the world, South Korea, so it’s even more tempting) if I could afford it but I can’t.
