Will I ever get back to normal?

I have gained several cup sizes since becoming pregnant with my third son. He is seven weeks old now and they haven't gone down any. I am breast feeding and was wondering if they will ever return to the size the once were. I'd really like to fit into my preprego shirts again.

  • My boobs went back down after I stopped breastfeeding...but no, they were never quite the same. I don't know what to tell you re: third son. I'm pregnant with my second right now and I can tell you that already none of my pre-pregnancy or even nursing bras fit me anymore...seems like they're just getting bigger and bigger and bigger.

  • Mine got smaller a few months into breastfeeding, and everything fit normally again.

  • Sorry but I have never heard of someone complain about their boobs being to big, LOL...wish I had that problem..No, but seriously, I BF my third and I was a D the whole time as long , but once he was weaned I went back to my deflated B, I know some women do go back to their normal size while others dont. I miss mine so this december it is time for a boob job, mine are not full just long now LOL ( sorry TMI).

  • Each pregnancy changes you, without the breastfeeding. Some women return to what they were before, some don't. Can't make any promises.

  • It is really frustrating because I was a large C and now I am a DDD. I can't find bras that fit.

  • I'm a DDD - Lane Bryant's Cacique line is great - I don't wear the underwire ones personally, but they have both. I just had my first, am not breast feeding, and haven't noticed any change, but I was a DDD before I got pregnant....
