Anyone here had breast implants and is nursing? Having any problems?

I had a physical birth defect that effected my breast development of 1 side

I had breast implants to try to attempt to fix this problem between child #2 & #3

Well, now I am extremely lopsided full C on one side and just a B on the other. Summer time is coming and my kids are going to want to go swimming. I can't get into a suit like this. It is soooo obvious.

Any opinion? ANyone else have this problem? Please tell me I'm not alone

I don't have any actual experience, but you might want to check into resources for breast cancer survivors. I know they make bras and probably bathing suits that have space for inserts. So you could put a little padding in the smaller size.

I'm not sure if that is what you are looking for and hope your not offended by my suggestion.

Not offended - thanks for the reply. I have considered that as an option. But, a last resort too.

Can you nurse from both sides? Which one is the big one, the regular one or the implant one?


Know that lots of moms, implants or not, are lopsided when bfing from the baby preferring one side over another for many reasons.

Me, I'd just wear a t-shirt over my suit this year. I used to anyway, for discreet nursing, half the time. And just wear a modestly cut suit, not a string bikini! I bet it won't be as obvious as you think. I know we had a thread on this not long ago. You might do a search.
