Anyone else have their breasts get smaller after having children?

I know it is probably an odd question but after having my first daughter & finishing bf i went down a cupsize!! I wasn't a large cup to begin with but I at least had boobs! Then after having my twins my boobs went down ANOTHER half a cup size!! Has this happened to anyone else? I am now a small A LOL! Is there any way to get my boobs back? (& srry if I didnt post this ? in the right spot, but I think I did)

  • Basically breasts are fat. That means if you put on weight, your boobs are going to get bigger. When you lose weight, naturally your boobs get smaller, unless of course, you have implants. Right now, I would give anything to put on a little white cotton t-shirt and not feel like a cow! LOL! I hate my boobs. You can have them if you want. LOL!!!

  • well Idk if its the same for me but mine did the same but I think it's just because I've lost weight over all. I mean when I got pregnant I was 200, got up to 235 wtih them, lke three days after i had them i was 176!!! so yeah I've lost weight from just being pregnant so when I was done brestfeeding theyre a bit smaller. they're not that big either, Victoria Secret SAYS they're a C but they don't look that big lol
    i wish they were smaller XD i hate them

  • Maybe that's why, I'm not a big person, I was 115lbs when I got pregnant for my oldest (now 4 1/2), I didn't gain too much weight for her & I was lucky I was back down to 110 about a week after having her & when I was pregnant for twins the same thing, I was 110lbs when I got pregnant for twins & I was huuuuge for them (they were both just over 6lbs when born) & then a week after I was 115 & now I am 110lbs again, so it could be from the drastic weight gain & loss with pregnancy, it is just weird imo lol. I'm like where did my boobs go! I don't shop at victoria secrets much because I am so small now but I do shop at wal mart & jcpenny for bras & they seem to fit okay but even a small a is a little big, ughh

  • I agree with m-avi. Also, I had a reduction roughly a year-and-a-half before becoming pregnant and went down three cups. When I was pregnant, I went up all of HALF a cup. I've been about the same size since.

  • I was a full A or small B before my daughter, a full C while nursing her, and a BARELY A after she weaned! I'm pregnant with baby #2 right now, I hope I don't go down to absolutely nothing after him lol.

  • I think this is typical for a lot of women. I don't know if there is a "solution".
