Re: back to original size?

Before E I was a nice A - after nursing him I ended up a small C on one side and a B on the other. Now (currently pumping & trying to nurse) I am a C on one side and a big D on the other.

After Ollie is weaned and my milk is dried up, my "girls" are getting evened out and put back where they belong!

Lexi...no DDs here...but I am at least hoping for a matching set!
Well, I hope you get your matching set! It took me about three months to get back to my pre-nursing size.

Re: back to original size?

If your LO weaned gradually and not abruptly I wouldn't expect a big change. My youngest DS weaned at 18 mos(had cut back gradually form a year) and they were already much smaller than when he was nursing full time. I can't say that I really noticed a change after weaning him. I would look into an insert or find a top with removable pads and only remove the one on the big side. If you plan on having more babies just try to make a real effort to have your next baby even you out.

Oh my...that scares me! Please don't say that they will stay as one C and one A! I am not having any more babies...so there will be no more nursing to even them out.

Re: back to original size?

Before dd I was a C, then when I started nursing they were up to a very full D. By the time I weaned dd (2.5 years) they had shrunk down to a "saggy" D. Now, 4 months later I'm back into my pre-pregnancy C cup bras.

Re: back to original size?

Anyone else have experience with drastic size differences on each side?

Thumbs up Re: back to original size?

I hope mine don't sag too badly after I'm done. My cousin tells me she has puddles in her bra and that's just depressing. Before I got married, I was barely a B and couldn't fit into a ball gown for a party so I picked up a set of these things. You can get them at BB&B. They might help to balance out the lopsidedness.
