    Mine pretty much returned to what they were. It happened gradually though as Harvey dropped feeds. By the time he weaned he was down to one feed per day.

    Now I'm pregnant again my bra size is creeping back up!

    I'm still BF (LO's only 5 months) but I'm already back to what I was :(
    I've been told they get smaller once you stop, I'm hoping that isn't true!!!!!! :s

    Mine haven't gotten any bigger, not during pregnancy nor breastfeeding? So I hope they don't get any smaller than pre-pregnancy and breastfeeding, ugh!

    I was 30DD before I had Emma. When BF I was up to a 30G. (that's a great size to try and shop for ....) . I BF for 13 months and afterwards I went to a 30DD again. They are just currently not as pert but that may be more to do with my lack of exercise than anything else!

    I do think it's the pregnancy that causes the saggy breasts so we are just delaying it a bit by BFing. :haha: I have no clue how mine will look but I went from a small B to a DD and have stayed as DD's so far, but I'm assuming they won't be too pretty after I'm done. I'm not opposed to some plastic surgery after I'm done having kids and breastfeeding though. :lol:

    Mine never shrunk after my son was weaned. I just hope they do not get bigger this time. I am so short and went from a 34B to a 36DD and I look so top heavy now. I cannot imagine how awkward I will feel if I get bigger this time around!

    Then again, I hope to lose quite a bit of weight after this LO arrives, so hopefully that will help my boobs shrink just a bit! lol

    I'm wondering, if you stop abruptly then they stay that way? Before I had my first I was a 32/34DD they got up to G when I bf him, after a couple of weeks though I got mastitis and gave up pretty instantly and they stayed at G. I'm now bf my second (3 weeks today) my boobs have gone up to H so I'm hoping when I do stop the right way they will go down to G as it's hard enough as it is to find bras!
