ok, so i am 23 this year, and have a 12 week old beautiful girl. i have always had big boobs, and since breastfeeding (im no longer breastfeeding due to her not getting near enough milk!!) i feel like they have just deflated!!! im so self conscious of them i really do not like them any more at all! i call them my sandbags or stressballs!! has any one else got this problem and is there anything that can help besides surgery???? i feel like a granny at age 22!!! **do your boobs hang low? can you tie them to and fro, can you tie them in a knot, can you tie them in a bow......" eekk!!!!

I have never had a large chest (usually a B) but while breastfeeding my first son I was a D. Then after they deflated to an A. Now after breastfeeding my second son they are a B. So, maybe if you have another child and breastfeed they will be a little bigger afterward. :o)

I'm sorry to hear about you problem! That really sucks! I've got some pretty big boobs too, especially now that I'm pregnant again. I breastfed my son, but I haven't had your problem (sorry). The rest of my family however, has. All three of my aunts and both of my cousins are the same way as you. I'm not sure why it didn't happen with me. I'm the only one to have breastfed my child, and I pumped everything that I gave to him. But don't feel too bad about it. It's like my aunt always says..."Breasts don't make the woman!"

I breastfed and my breasts did get larger while I was breast feeding. Now that I am not breast feeding they haven't changed much at all.

Every mother that i know of that has done breastfeeding has always had a smaller chest after that and there is no natural cure that i have ever heard of. Your doc might have suggestions...?

Sorry hun..... the only way to fix it is surgery! I had twins and breastfeed till they were 1yr. I made so much milk I had to pump in between! I went from a 36 C to a 38 DD in 6 months! Now, my boobs look like yours! I wear a sports bra to bed and I went to Victoria's Secret and got some good support bras!! Sorry babe! Life sucks some times! lol
