Just wondering if I will forever be noticeably lopsided, or if there is some hope to become more symmetrical once I am done breastfeeding.

 

FWIW, I didn't notice any particular lopsidedness prior to nursing. But one side definitely is bigger/produces more than the other now.

Not really. I am on my 6th nursling and haven't had many breaks so I couldn't say for sure, but I think the smaller one has gotten somewhat bigger over the years and the bigger one got a bit smaller when I wasn't lactating during my last pregnancy but there was still a difference.

I have been nursing for 5 years straight, but my breasts get more even at around 18 months post partum. I have small breasts though.

Mine have always been a little lopsided, and my larger one produced more, but once I got to the point with nursing where they didn't really change size anymore, they were back at their previous degree of lopsidedness. Ultimately they returned to their pre-baby size and status, so hopefully that'll happen for you too.
