    Did your bust size decrease after breastfeeding?

    As the title says, did your bust size decrease after your LO weaned?



    I've been pregnant/breastfeeding/pregnant/breastfeeding again without a break for over 3 years now so I have no idea if my bust size is 'normal' or bigger from breastfeeding. I've always had a large bust - before I fell pregnant with DS I think I was an F cup (I really can't remember), but I am now a H cup. I had also gained a lot of weight before I fell pregnant with DS, so I thought my larger bust may have had something to do with my weight. However, I've lost 20kg in the last 4 months, and I'm still a H cup! DD still feeds a lot, so I assume I'm still 'full of milk' (as the lady who fitted me for my bra said, lol).

    Just wondering if others found their bust size decreased when they stopped breastfeeding? I want to let DD wean on her own and we're planning more kids in the future, so I'll probably be stuck at this size for a while, but it would be nice to think I might drop a few cup sizes one day!

    No. Mine went up and then stayed up. Before I was a full B or barely C now I'm a C.

    It might be to do with the 4 or 5 kg that I've never shifted after DS1

    Not really for me. I've done the preg/BF/wean thing twice now and I was pregnant when DS weaned but the only time I've gone down was when I lost weight, but that had more to do with my back measurement than my boobs IYKWIM?
    However, I've not really gone up a lot of sizes either.

    I am wondering what will happen to mine too. I haven't weaned a child yet, LOL, so been BF for over 3 yrs. But when they both got to around 1 the size started to decrease. Just less milk there I guess, and also I seem to lose weight around that age. I'm wondering what will happen when I have finished feeding, if they will come back again or just be saggy floppy stretched things, eww. I'm a little scared actually. I had D boobs before pregnancy and they go up to DD in pregnancy and are currently probably a C.

    I went from a D to an F when pg with DS. I was never properly fitted between DS & DD but about a year ago I was fitted and I was a full 12E. I should now be an F but I'm in my old maternity bras, so haven't been fitted.

    A few girls from my mum's group who were breastfeeding said their bust size decreased... I think they were all quite flat chested, so were complaining about it when their little ones weaned. I wish I could share some of mine around, lol!

    My boobs shrunk significantly after my baby was born. I'm still breast feeding but they've gone from a dd/e to d. But I lost 5kgs so that's probably a big factor, but I definitely didn't get big milk boobs at all. After my first child weened himself early at 5 months my boobs didn't change size at all.

    I think weight has a lot to do with it.

    I was a 12DD before I fell pregnant with the twins, then went up to a 14E. When I lost my milk I h=then went down to a 10E, so I lost the baby weight, but not cup size.. This time around I was a 10E before pregnancy, went up to 14E and now I'm back down to a 12DD so I'm back where I started.. I am still Bf so have no idea if they will shrink further.. I really really hope not!!

    About 6 months since bf stopped I believe mine are a bit smaller than before i got pg. But only a bit. Like half a size. If i lost any more there'd be nothing but a couple of little raisins.

    Mine went back to exactly the same size (still up a cup now bfing DD2 but I expect them to settle). They actually went back to my normal size when I was still bfing DD1 from about 18 mths.

    I am still a cup size bigger (increased by about 2-3 cup sizes while pregnant and feeding) and weaned about 18 mnths ago. Still have a lot of 'baby' weight to loose so that may have something to do with it
