My breasts were always a small 34B. During pregnancy they went to a small C cup. This goes for each pregnancy. They always shrink back down. I`ve never breastfed longer than 1 month. I`m breastfeeding my soon to be 3 month old. They are now a nice D cup. They look fab. They`ll probably shrink back down again but I don`t know.. What was your experience?? Any tips on keeping them plump or not saggy will be much appreciated!
Hi yes you are right breastfeeding makes breasts nice and big. But unfortunately afterwards they don’t keep that shape! I don’t think there is much you can do about it except buying good support bras and training. I noticed first 3 months after breastfeeding they sag, and slowly they go back to their normal shape more or less.
I have breastfed over 10 years total, adding up bf of 6 babies (a few of them more than 2 years). Anyway, I don’t think I sag anymore than any 45 year old, even those that never were pregnant or breastfed. Gravity and age has an impact. Before kids, I was a 34C and after bf the first, I never got smaller than a 34D. I am now a 38DD. During bf, I went up to F & G cups. It must vary per individual, but my experience has been positive.
Mine have changed shape, but most of the damage/ stretch marks came about during the engorgement phase right after birth of my first. Pregnancy changes them, birth, nursing, it doesn’t matter how long, they change as your body has changed. Mine deflated a lot after I was done nursing my second child. I’m enjoyin them now, but I know that when I’m done nursing this baby, they will change again. Then a super fancy bra I’m sure, will do wonders.
