To be honest, I don’t really pay that much attention to my breasts anymore. I wear comfortable bras (which you can read about) and since I have breastfed three children I see them more as feeding machines than anything else.
I was so happy that at nine months I was finally weaning the twins, meaning I could get my body back and start to feel more like myself again, rather than a tethered 24/7 to the babies. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy nursing very much and would do it all again, but the girls are eating lots of solid food and happy and healthy and they just seemed ready. In fact, one of them weaned herself, and the other was in the process (I just sped it up).
Back to the point, there is someone who does pay attention to my boobs, and the other night when I was changing he looked at me and said “what the heck happened to your boobs?” I looked down and there were two small, rather deflated, and sad-looking breasts. I just joked “well you can’t joke about them sagging because since my belly is sagging too everything is still the same distance apart.” (Yes, while I am back in my size 0 and XS I still have a flap of skin that is taking its own sweet time to shrink).
Obviously, everyone is different. So I can’t say that your experience will be like mine, but here it is. After having children my breasts dropped a full cup size and got saggier. On the bright side, having big boobs in a pain, they get in your way when you are trying to exercise, clothes don’t fit right and your bra straps gauge holes in your shoulders. So, I am actually happy to be a little bit flatter, it’s just funny because it’s something I never expected. Oh, and just in case you don’t know its pregnancy that changes your breasts so if you think you can avoid affecting the girls by not breastfeeding, it won’t work.
