Okay, I started out with an A cup, pregnancy made them big, engorgment made them huge, then after a steady two months of breastfeeding they seemed to be at least back down to a B cup.... now it seems they are getting bigger again. *pokes boobs* Make up your minds ladies! :
So what's the deal? Are they just producing more milk or what?
Anyone else experencing this and tried of buying bras?

Mine are unusually large for this time pp as well. To avoid buying a ton of bras I wear Bravado as I find them more forgiving as my size fluctuates (and I still need to double nursing pad too so dh is loving the girl's appearance now!) I actually would like them to shrink a bit as I am a bit self conscious with them now not to mention it sucks when I try to exercise

I started with a C and B cup and now both are Ds on a good day. I wear Bravado bras as well and they are extremely forgiving.

I was a 34 DD pre-preg and now I am just HUGE. I don't know my cup size b/c I only wear glamourmom tanks and bravado nursing bras which aren't cupped, but I'm probably an F or G at this point. I don't even want to know.

When dd was around 1, I seem to remember that my boobs got a lot smaller even though I was still nursing--smaller, stretched out and saggy, though .

I don't have a clue what size mine are. I don't wear a bra while nursing. Too much of a hassle, LOL.

I was a 34D pre-preg, and I figured I'd get nice and big. I didn't figure on a 34H!!!!!
I'd just be so happy if I could score a C cup when I'm done nursing. I want to remember what it's like to have shirts fit nicely.

Life with a toddler: it's not so much the volume, it's the pitch!

I wish mine were a bit bigger! I started out as a barely A, and I'm a B now. I would love a C cup

I'm typically a B/C cup when non-pregnant and non-nursing.

When nursing an infant I'm a D/DD cup and then drop down to a C/D when nursing a toddler.

My size fluctuates daily, it seems and I just buy stretch cotton nursing bras that will allow me to go up and down a bit.

yeah i always feel a bit like a porn star when nursing an infant. pre-preganancy (w/#1) i was a 32C. when my milk comes in i bust out of a 34DD/E stretchy cup bra. once baby is into toddlerhood they have always settled down to a 34C/D.

part of it for me has always had to do with weight. i think even without nursing if i was carrying 20 extra pounds i'd be at least at 34D. my drop in bra size both previous times has seemed to have more to do with how much i weighed than how frequently my toddler was nursing.

but "normal"? i would hesitate to use that word. after pregnancy, boobs are just different, even when they aren't busy breastfeeding. but they should calm down for you between 12-18 months, at least that was when my really did.

OMG!!! How do you do that? Mine hurt in something just a little less supportive...of course mine are a little big--I'm not sure what size but according to the bra people Oprah uses (there is a store in Atlanta where my mom lives) I was around a 34 G...I'm larger now...but if I buy a bra in a regular store it's usually a D or DD.
But what I wouldn't give to have a night of freedom from the boulder holder!!!
