  • Pregnancy made the changes. Breastfeeding delays "deflation" if it's in the cards for you,. but it makes NO changes in your breasts.

    Go look at any woman in your bloodline who had a baby. That's your genetic template for what you'll look like.

  • I do think breastfeeding makes your boobs saggier. I lost a pregnancy pretty far along and my breasts were normal afterward, but after breastfeeding dd, well they point south. I would still breastfeed though. That's what push-up bras are for!

  • I don't think so, but my breasts are pretty large to begin with, so I guess it also just might depend on the size of chest =]

  • I do believe for some people they start to sag a bit but I dont know about looking terrible. I breastfed my daughter and they're pretty much the same as before except still big lol I was a B cup before and I'm a C now...go figure! But I guess it just depends on your genetic makeup.

  • I didn't breastfeed, but my cup size went from a 36D when I got preg with my first, and now I'm at a 36C. You do the math! :)
