    I feel a bit embarrassed asking this :blush:

    Basically, I have pretty big mammary glands, 36 EE...and I'm really worrying that when I start breastfeeding and afterwards, they're going to go saggy :cry:

    Is this what happens?? Is there any way to prevent it?

    Someone said to me the only way to prevent it is to just not breast feed but I want to breastfeed so badly! My poor baby, I wouldn't deny him of that!

    My sister has biiiiggg boobies and breast fed my niece. They are no more saggy than they were before and my best friend didn't breastfeed and hers are a lot saggier...so that puts paid to that rumour i think (or its a big coincidence?!). I think some people get some sagging and some don't, its like stretch marks and cellulite - luck of the drawer! (Btw, if there is a God i have 2 of those 3 so would be very grateful to keep my perky(ish) boobies thanks! :rofl:) x x x

    Oh god he better take pity on me too then, I've had stretch marks and cellulite as well :( How about if I strap them really high up with that stuff they use on Egyptian mummies, maybe that'll stop them from going saggy?

    Hahaha that must feel really uncomfortable!! I used to use that Palmer's scar and stretchmark serum stuff with shark oil in and it STUNK of fish and was so horribly greasy, I couldn't imagine slapping that all over my boobs! You gotta do whatever it takes though, I'm so worried I'm gonna end up so ugly looking no guy will ever look at me again! :(

    Don't be silly, you'll still look gorgeous i'm sure. Plus men who only care about looks aren't worth your time anyway! :hugs:

    Aww that's very true! And I couldn't agree more! but I'm sure you know what I mean when I say, if you don't look good, you don't feel good...and my boobs dragging along the floor would just send me over the edge! :(

    I saw on TV that it's pregnancy itself that can make your boobs sag, and breastfeeding doesn't make any difference. Not sure how reliable that is though - it was the GP on The Sex Education Show vs Pornography who said it!!!

    You're right, if you don't look good you don't feel good i suppose. Plan B could be, wonderbra and chicken fillets till you have captured one then reveal all when its too late?! xxx

    HAHAHAHAHA. "captured one". I love it. I could just sellotape them to my shoulders...oh yuck I just imagined having to pull the sellotape off my nipples :(

    I really need to go out and get some new bras, because the ones I have give me NO support anymore, and if it's pregnancy that makes your boobs saggy not the breastfeeding, then I need to act now, before it's too late!

    I was about to get in the shower the other day and I got a glimpse of my boobs in the mirror and I swear they looked saggier than normal. I kept checking them again after that and they looked normal so I'm guessing temperature had something to do with that. Us women have it so hard! But then we have it a billion times better than the men cos we get to have babies :D

    I've heard that the people whos boobs grow alot in pregnancy are the most at risk! Which doesn't make me thrilled cos I have gone from a c cup to an e cup at 16 weeks and I'm having difficulties now to fit into the e cup. I'm not sure is normal to already grow so much!

    i was a 34B when i had my eldest, they went to a D whilst pregnant. ended up a C afterwards, not saggy. with lil man i started off as a 34C and ended up a 36C, but they felt empty. with this 1 i started off as a 36C and i am now wearing 38Ds and starting to fall out at the sides.

    didnt BF with any of them.
