  • It's really hard to say. It's different for each woman based upon genetics. I went from a 34DD to a 36H at my largest and am now in a 34G. I only have an extra 10 lbs from pregnancy.

  • Some women's breasts don't grow much more then a couple of inches, whereas other women's breasts grow full cup sizes.
    Mine grew a full cup size with my first son. This all depends on how much milk supply you gain and how much fat you gain goes into your breasts. With my daughter my chest size remained the C cup. (I was originally a B cup prepregnancy) I am pregnant with my third child and my breasts have gone up a half cup size. They're flipping huge to me!

  • when I got pregnant, I was a B. By the time I had my daughter, I was an E. They went down to a DD while I breastfeed her. After we weaned, they went down to a D, but I got pregnant with baby number 2 after a month or so, and they're at DD again. I'm pretty sure they'll be up to an E for a little bit before he pops out, my bra has been getting smaller recently.

  • I agree, it is different with each woman. But if you think about it, our breasts are mostly made up of fat cells, I would think it could be based upon how much weight you gain and where you personally gain it at first. For me, I was a 34 a and went to a 36 d by the end of pregnancy lol.

  • It just depend on the woman her self. But you can't determines how much they will grow. I also was a 34 to 36 c and went to a 36D.
