 ok because it's women here.. lol and it's not exactly face to face lol I'm easly embarrassed. I'm more of a smaller chested lady. So not gonna lie i didn't  mind the additional  2 sizes . I know once you stop nursing you go back down. My question is .. do you resumme you're orginal size  or even less? How much does eating enough contribute? I know eating a heathly amount allows you to produce enough milk. Ok so that's my question.. what we're some of you're ladies experiances. if you don't mind me asking.

You don't always necessarily go back down. Before my first pregnancy I was a double A cup (I only weighed 87 lbs though). After that first pregnancy I was an A cup...still not big but def a big improvement over AA. I've had 9 babies and typically now I go into a C cup while nursing and after nursing still maintain a full B cup (my prepreg and after losing my baby weight size is around 110-115 lbs). I've had a couple of instances where I lost a lot of weight (like down to 100 lbs) and went to barely a B, but upon gaining weight back my cup size increased.

Me too.  I was a DDD before my last pregnancy, and now I'm a G.

 I am very small in that area and was super happy to become a B cup when my milk came in :)  Mine went down to the same original size after nursing :( 3 kids later still my A cup.

Mine never went back down.  I have always only gotten bigger. I was a 34 DD before my daughter and now at a 36G due in February with my third child.

After my first, I went up to a D but back down to a B. Now I am nursing again and I am a DD. We'll see if I go back to a B.

I was a C before my 1st and went up to a DD with nursing but back down to a C. This time I'm over a DD and will nurse for another 6-10 mos depending on her....and then we'll see what happens...

I've stayed the same... I looked forward to being bigger in that department but nothing changes for me apparently :(

I'm bfing a 22 month old, stayed the same size throughout that pregnancy and only got bigger for the first month or so postpartum, then back to pre-pregnancy size.

Now I'm 7 months into my second pregnancy, haven't changed either.

I was a B cup when I got pregnant with my first. Now after my fourth, I'm an AA cup, but I am also under 100 lbs now, so that probably has a lot to do with it. 


When my milk comes in, I am easily a full C, but it goes back down to B or so after a month. By 18 months, I'm probably an A and then AA after weaning. I know people who've shrunk and people who keep their bigger breasts.
