I was a 36B pre-pregnancy and about a 36D after my first pregnancy. I think I went down to probably a 36C before getting pregnant again. After having DD2, I went up to a 34DDD (try finding that size in a nursing bra!). I was tandem nursing, FWIW. Now that DD2 has just turned three, although still nursing, I'm back to a 34B (and loving it!).

Pre-pregnancy was a DD, 5 days pp was an H, am now an F, but I think I'm going to go get measured soon, they may have returned to a DD

I don't want to wean because I love my cup size, and I am afraid that the girls will shrink smaller that ever. 34A is my biggest! But I never had to worry about stretch marks on my boobs.

Small A before pregnancy, 38 B in the first months of nursing, now a smaller B. Will they get even smaller when I wean? Not planning to for a while but I've wondered.

32 D to a 32 F.
I didn't know such a size existed in nature.

34 E when babe was 6 months and nursing a little less frequently coupled with some weight loss.

With my son Colin I was an A pre-pregnancy and a large C/small D during breastfeeding.

This time around my prepregnacy size was a small B. I'm already a C now and I have to wait to see what I will be once I start breastfeeding again but I'm thinking a D.

I have a nursing two year old and have been nursing continuously since late August 2004. Before ever having babies I was a C cup. Now I'm an F.
