I've been nursing my son for 10 months now , and for the first 4-6 months i had no problem with the size of my breasts or the production of my milk , then once the 7th to 9th month rolled around i noticed that my right side was dramatically larger than my left , and that my left side had returned to the size and shape it was before my son was born , my left is still producing milk but i cant help but be bothered by the dramatic difference in size , it's a good 2 size difference. Now i have tried everything to help fill the gap in size , I've tried nursing more frequently on the left than the right , I have tried pumping before and after each feeding being sure to nurse an extra 10-15 minutes on the left breast, i have even tried adjusting my posture while nursing , getting fitted bras and even sports bras to create the illusion of my breast being the same size, I have even been lifting heavier weights and adding extra reps to my push ups ,I've had zero success with all these experiments and I am stumped i don't have the money to get a lift or augmentation and i feel really insecure around my husband and in tank tops my husband says it's not a problem and he isn't bothered but i am , summer is around the corner i would atleast like to be able to wear a bathing suit instead of a sweatshirt or t-shirt that is three sizes to big ...Can any one help and give me some solid advice on how to fix this or am I stuck feeling lopsided and chafed for the rest of my days ?! PLEASE HELP!!!!

That's the same problem iv'e had , my son doesn't like the smaller side i try to nurse him and he unlatches and tries sit up to move to the larger ,I feel like it's a battle that i just can't win ....and it's been getting so hot lately so i find my self adding extra padding to the smaller side just so i can where a lose fitting tank top , I feel so embarrassed and awkward:( I even pump an extra 15 mins to get the flow going.
