This is coming off of the 'when to whip it out' convo, and I'm wonering what size do you all imagine would be perfect breast size?
And if you could wave a magical wand (free of charge, no pain) what would you wish to change about your breasts?
Size? Shape? Nipple/areola? Maybe color? Perkiness?
I bet most women have something they would change, and many do change their breasts surgically at one time or another, but I wonder if we all have similar ideas of what
'perfect breasts' would look like?

So im 11 weeks pregnant today and i've gone up 2 cup sizes already.... I originally was a 34D Now im a 38 E. All in all im starting to feel very self concious about the size of my breasts. Especially when men Gawk. Im a pettite person so large boobs just look abnormal to me. All for the sake of the baby i suppose. My family on my fathers side has very large breasts In the G range. Im only 21 i dont want my breasts to be at my knees!~!. Perfect breast size to me is a 34D, but it has to be perky.Anything bigger is just rude lol.

I would say the perfect breast size would be whatever is in proportion to your body, whatever that may be. The only thing I would want to change about my breasts are stretch marks I have on them now. They are faded but I am still self conscience of them.

I think a 36 C cup is perfect and i do plan to upgrade my own one day :) i like the size of my aerola so i wouldnt change that however i kno my nipples kinda stick out a lot especially after breastfeeding and i do want to continue breastfeeding with future children so i kno they will stick some more. So those being a little smaller would be cool too.

I am a C cup, and i think it is perfect, a few less stretch marks would be nice as the make it look like I'm sagging, but beyond that I love my breast size.

I am a 34FF and on Friday I am getting a breast reduction.. I am going down to a 34D and I am so excited! So hopefully the 34D looks perfect on me! I am 130 lbs, 5'4, and size 6 Jean so my 34FF look super awkward on me!

I would love to be able to downgrade to a c cup, f is way too big for me. I'm a small woman so its quite disproportional.

@ Charity - mine turned more brown after I had my son as well (like tannish-rose color), but I like them better now. It looks better with my darker skin, lol. No one told me they grew either!
Up until I got pregnant, my girls were teeny, barely there (maybe a full A, very small B), but perky, and I hated them, lol. Then they went to a DD with pregnancy, then down to my current C. But saggier :(. I actually love them now - a good bra will put them back where they belong, I actually have cleavage now, and I get grownup bras! Yay :D. My husband seems to love them as well, so we're all good.

Blessed Be

I'm a G cup, which is way too big! I think C cup is 'perfect' - B can still be a little on the small side, really unless you are tiny everywhere else and D is definitely getting into the 'big' range!

Oh i would change a whole lot! Haha...I'm 30 and have had two baby's...breastfed both! And am still breastfeeding one, honestly if you look at them looks like i'm flat chested! But today i went and brought a bra and i didn't try it on before i bought it and took it home 10C it was....Oops TOO SMALL! I would like my perky tata's back! A nice perky C cup would be good...I'd keep my nipples lol :-)

Mine would fit into my dance costumes better if they hadn't gotten so flat when they sagged. If I adjust my bras right they still look OK though.

[deleted account]

I think the perfect ones are ones that are perportional to the body they are on. My boob would look really weird on a tiny frame.

With my first pregnancy (in the 8 weeks before I lost the baby) my breasts grew a cup size I went from a 36C to a 36D. Then when I was pregnant with my daughter, they grew again, to 36DD... now that I'm not breastfeeding they are sill a freakn' 36DD.

Honestly I hate it. It is so hard to find shirts that don't show cleavage. I've gone as far as sewing triangles on shirts since camis don't stay up high enough. Getting an XL instead of a L in button up shirts is annoying.

I really would like to be back down to a C. I was a lot happier there.

I want my pink nipples back :) I don't like that they are brown :( I would also go up one size (from 36C to 36D) and definitely get some perkiness.

[deleted account]

I never like having larger size. People always looked at my chest and anything I wore always looked slutty. After having a few kids now their normal size and I kinda miss having nice full breasts. But I wouldn't change myself, I like me the way I am, stretch marks and all. Ok maybe not the stretch marks!

I had a breast reduction when I was 17, so I would get rid of the scars from surgery, the unevenness (one is bigger than the other), and the stretch marks from pregnancy and breastfeeding.



At this point "normal" would be my ideal.

*sigh* having smallish B-cup breasts to begin with, when i got pregnant with my first son and they went all the way up to a D it wreaked havoc with them. i once heard the term ' like ziploc baggies with just a bit of water in the bottom" and it made me laugh and cry at the same time, because that is what i think my breasts look like after baby. i am anjoying them right now, nice and full even if they are a bit tender. and i'm only 11 weeks pregnant! they're going to be heyuuuuge at the end...i would probably get a boob job, just to make them a bit fuller again. i hate that nasty saggyness. yuck. they look sad, and that makes me sad.

Don't get me started about nursing bras! the darn shoulder straps keep coming loose...it's like i'm a human hanger for these bras!

I like my size...maybe i'd like to be a little pit perkier..a bit firmer. They are pretty floppy, but not droopy (thank goodness!) I'd consider them just about perfect when I get rid of this darned milk bleb....it's the first time in almost a year that i've experienced some kind of breastfeeding ailment. :(

Someone needs to make an entire new line of nursing bras, period. Have you any idea how hard it is to find a comfortable, functional and nice-looking 30E-F bra? Lol.

That's why I don't even use nursing bras. Impossible. And they should stop making them look like granny bras or bras that create log boobs.

I worked as an assistant at a mammography unit. I've seen more breasts than I ever cared to. Let me just say- Women with larger breasts usually want them smaller. Everyone gets a little "saggier" with age.
I would change the way designers make clothing for pregnant and nursing mothers. I went up from a B to a DD when I was nursing and was very self conscious about my cleavage. I just hated trying to pick something up and feeling like I was flashing people.

Yup that was the time for me as well, then Eric started eating better right around when I got pregnant, he was 16 months. And since then my milk is less and less, but he is doing ok. Although, he has been getting sick a bunch more this winter, sucks

I imagine it's become easier for you now that Eric isn't taking so many of your calories. I think I was losing the most around 12-14 months- Adelaide wasn't eating more than a mouthful of solids at that time and of course had to satisfy all her needs from me!

My husband has had a bit of each with me. Keep in mind I am no more than 105 lbs and only 5'2. Before kids I was a 34D, after kids I always went to 34/36C. No problem. After giving birth (with milk) and late pregnancy I was always DD or bigger and quite perky :). After my youngest was born I was woried bc when we went home, my milk hadn't come in yet. Well, the next day I sat up and my husband said "holy cow, you don't have to worry that your milk didn't come in! Its there now!" None of my shirts would fit me. We went to the store to try to find a bra. EE was too small. I was HUGE!!!! Now luckily they are normal size again. 34C. I would like for them to be perkier, but hey, I am a mom, I have other things to concern myself with.

Holly, I'm a full cup size difference as well, but I prefer the smaller one!

Husband also says it's wonderful cuz he has one for any mood he is in, lol :)

But for me I just wish the areoles were the same size, or even close! The large one is an inch more areola then the small one when I measure it top to bottom.

Again, hubby loves it says it's great, I just like symetry too much!

Perfect size, I'd love to be B cups both breasts. 32 B

Sara, Lisa, I also lost a ton of weight after Eric, got down to the BMI of 19 which is in the worrisome zone, and then got preggo at that tiny weight of 110. But happily, I've gained quite well so dar and my dr can't blame my size on breastfeeding Eric anymore!

I think the beauty of them is that none are the same. If all breasts were the same shape and size, I doubt men would be fascinated with them.

For my to be perfectly happy with mine..I have one in and one out. I'd just like matching tits. lol. Maybe after nursing another child they'll match!

[deleted account]

Although I do love my huge boobs, I would like to go back from my 38/40 F/G to a 36DD - they were really perky then and lovely and full, so if I could go back to there without surgery I would :-)

The perfect breast size? Mine, of course! : ) Just as every woman's breasts are the perfect size for her, barring any health-related issues. At least every woman should see her breasts as being perfect for her but sadly, this isn't always the case...

I think each woman's breasts are the perfect size for her, so unless they're causing real health issues, mental or physical, don't change them.



I love my breasts because they did what they were intended to do, feed my children. (and before anyone says anything, that's not a criticism of anyone who doesn't breastfeed, it's just how I feel.)

[deleted account]

I have to say after my two children and the youngest 2.I love the way my breast are and my partner thinks there perfect.I love them.I love my body also.So to me mine are perfect the way the are and i would never change them.I think woman are perfect with the ones the have.As you all know breasts come in all shapes and sizes and we should love them all there as perfect as the lady wearing them ♥

[deleted account]

I forgot to put what I consider to be the "perfect size"

Each woman has a differnt body, so of course each woman has a different perfect size. I don't think breats can be a one size fits all kind of thing. What looks good on me might look horrible on someone else, and vice versa.

For me, I think C cup is perfect (and it's the size of my larger one). If I ever got a boob job, I would have a tiny implant in the large one (make it a full C instead of a small one) and a regular implant in the small one (make it a matching full C as opposed to the small B that it is now).

[deleted account]

I would like to have breats that are the same size... Right now one is a full cup size larger than the other one and it can get quite annoying... Although my hubby says he likes it because he can chose which side goes with his mood (larger or smaller!) silly hubby! lol...

I'd really like to go back to how they were right after my reduction. Perfect largish C cups, very perky and I didn't even need a bra for support. Loved it. They've shrunk a bit since I weaned, which was nice, but they're just not so perky anymore. I guess part of it is age.

[deleted account]

I wouldn't mind having a B or C cup to help fit into clothes better. But my husband or babies don't mind the smallness of my breasts so I have no intention of changing them.

Well I have F size breasts.... so I want a breast reduction and a lift. Time to get them off my knees !

I would love to get down to a C cup so they sit nicely and can really support themselves. Man I can dream !!!

My breasts get huuuuuge after having a baby. They've shrunk quite a bit now that Adelaide is 2 1/2. Yeah, I lost a ton of weight. With both of my girls I ended up losing over my prepregnancy weight. My mom couldn't keep weight on either.

[deleted account]

Lisa, you're a tiny lady aren't you? I thought I remembered you talking about losing lots of weight after your second because I had the same issue. I don't have large breasts at all though. I'm a B cup. The biggest I got was a D when engorged. I don't mind them much. I don't really want bigger because I've heard of how much of a pain big breasts can be. I wouldn't mind if they were slightly fuller. They look nice when storing milk lol.

It's hard to gauge because with change in band size comes a change in cup size- it isn't standard.

So I'm a 30E but the cups are about the same as a C cup with a 32 band. I think I'd like to go down to a 30D.

And definitely up with the perkiness! But my 2 1/2 year old loves their play doh goodness.

Back to my 16 DD they were awesome although even at G cup they are still quiet perky .
