Hey all!

Sorry to be so specific, but this Q requires specificity!

I have breastfed my second daughter now for one year and started weaning (finally!! yeah!).

I breastfed my first daughter ( 3 yrs) the same period of time.

Well, now my boobs have shrunk way down, I mean, more than the first time and sort of look wrinkly on the sides because of all the stretching. I was a full B-cup before kiddos and now I would just fit a B-cup. . . have you had this similar experience?

Never been a proponant of boob jobs, but starting to sound nice after I'm finished having babies.

I always thought my boobs looke awesome when my milk came in lol (didn't we all?!!!)

breast size fluxuates several times during life. breasts are fatty issue.ty working your pecs and see if that helps improve the over all look of the breast.

p.s i wish i was a b-cup somedays...LOL

I've been breastfeeding for 4 years and have not experienced this after weaning.

this happened to me with my second baby as well, and it happened to my mom with her second baby, she had six kids and is now 63 and her breast look grate! i just had baby #3 so i'm not sure what will happen to mine.

Yup mine did the same thing, though I've bf'd three with another on the way. My problem has always been that with each child when I first started bf'ing they got bigger so I have all these nursing bras that are one to two sizes bigger but I know they wont fit for the first few months! lol

I love to joke that eventually I will need a crank to wind them back into my bra XD lmao

Mine unfortunately did not shrink, I was hoping they would because I have heard other women complain that the same thing happened to them as you. I was a 36DD pre-pregnancy & as you can imagine they were enormous while pregnant & nursing but went back to 36DD after I stopped nursing. My sister is smaller than me & she nursed for two years but hers also went back to normal which is about a 36B & she's actually getting a breast enlargement in a couple weeks, lol! I think they look great & wish mine were smaller, I guess you always want what you don't have...=(
