  • Mine have. Whether its from breastfeeing or just being pregnant, though, I'm not sure. My son is 6 months old and my boobs are MUCH saggier than they used to be. Its okay though...its worth it. :)

  • They get saggy even if you don't breast feed. Gravity is a bitch. :( Why not benefit your child?

  • pregnancy does it not breastfeeding... your boobs get bigger and then get smaller when you are done either being pregnant or breastfeeding....

  • TIme, gravity, genetics and pregnancy are what cause sagging. Breastfeeding isn't the problem.
    I've nursed 2 kids for a combined 3 1/2 years, and mine are not too saggy. I was a very full D before, but now they are a bit smaller than before I had my first daughter, I'm still barely a D.

  • Your nipples will probably get larger. Mine did. But with exercise they will remain somewhat firm. Hopefully, everyone is different.

  • After I stopped mine were a little softer but didn't sag. They have the same shape they had before I got pregnant. Its different for different people. I'm a B cup too tho so maybe that does make somewhat of a differenc, IDK.

  • They get saggy from not waring a good bra... there is a ligament called the Coopers Ligament and it's what gets stretched out and lets your boobs sag. Ligaments, once stretched never shrink back to their original size.
