I miss them *sniff*. I want my old C-cups that rested closer to my shoulders than to my waistline. I want to wear my princess-seamed shirts tucked in to my slacks instead of t-shirts layered under a loose blouse.<br><br>
DD is nearly 1 y.o. and I guess I had this vague idea that by this milestone, she'd think Indian take-out was better than milk. I will feed her all the chicken vindaloo she wants if only she will leave my breasts alone.<br><br>
This weekend she suddenly started signing and saying some words and the power's gone to her head. I don't foresee her losing her enthusiasm for breastmilk anytime soon.<br><br>
So whenever this does all come to an end, will I fit back in those nice pink padded underwires from my previous life? Or am I doomed to droop like this forever?

I used to be a C/D and now I am an H. I would like to be ABLE to wear a button up shirt that's not so big I have to roll up the sleeves. (I still think it's worth it though. Being able to "happy" DS up everytime he falls over is priceless!)

OMG me too!!! I use to be a 36 C and now well lets just say I keep stuffing my boobs back into a 38 DD. I have totally got the muffin over the top and bottom. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I know I need a bigger bra but that would require me to admit that my boobs are gigantic. I am so tired of them... I know I never will get back into my cute little shirts. After DS my breast only went went back to a 36 D. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> The only thing I have to look forward too... when my childbearing and nursing days are over a breast augmentation. That will rid me of these beasts and get them above my belly button again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Oh, one can dream...

None of my tops fit either and I don't feel like going out buying new ones just to fit my boobs. I am so hoping that they go away! I want my little boobs back

I have been nursing for 6.5 years and my breasts have gone through major changes. First they grew with milk, then they returned back to their original size and now they have shrunk one size. They are small, but with a good push up bra they still look good. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

You all are giving me hope! I have wanted boobs my whole life, but was a B cup until pregnancy. When I was professionally fitted for a bra in my second trimester and it came out that I was a D, I literally had a party. Seriously. Took my husband out to dinner and everything.<br><br>
Needless to say, I'm enjoying every second of nursing...though things seem to be a bit more...ahem...jiggly than they used to be.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> I'm hoping I can at least be a C after all is said and done.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Me too! I was a 36 C and now I am a 38 J!!!! I keep thinking about how Maya Angelou said one time that her breasts were in a race to see which one could reach her waist first! I feel her pain!<br><br>
Do they go back? Of course I know they will always be LONGER than before... but will they get smaller? I just do not like how any of my clothes look and my back always hurts between my shoulders! Ds2 is almost 1 and he is 27 lbs exclusively on bm, almost. My boobs just keep growing!!!

Well, I had two bouts of big weight gain and loss before being pregnant and nursing. And I know for certain that quite a bit of the breast changes are simply b/c of getting bigger than smaller. It's not some magical and negative thing from nursing, it's mainly a matter of gaining then losing weight in them.<br><br>
DS is 4, but nursed like a "normal" newborn until he was around 3. I don't even want to talk about when he WAS a newborn, LOL. He's slowly weaning and when he does nurse it's for under 5 minutes. As this is happening, at the same time, I'm walking for fitness more and losing weight overall. And my breasts are getting smaller and smaller.<br><br>
Only a few weeks ago I was fitted for a bra and measured at 36DDD. The other day I went to buy a bra, and I don't know what was wrong with the measuring tape but dont' fit into a 36. However, I'm also NOT a triple D (aka F). I'm a DD. And one side is smaller than that b/c that side is floating a bit in the cup, LOL.<br><br>
So for me, I'm getting smaller the less DS nurses and as I lose weight. As they get smaller, they are less "scary", b/c there's less of them to flop to the side when I lie on my back, they don't go as far down b/c there's, again, less of them. For me it seems hopeful!<br><br><br>
Also with my mom, she was very big chested while nursing, but once all that was done with, she went back to her normal 36B. And then at 35 (when I was 10 and brother was 8) she had a hysterectomy and over the next few years I think she went down to an A. I'm not sure she was happy with the A, since it wasn't normal for her before, but they weren't scary and big for forever and ever.
