Re: My Poor Boobs!!!

The boobs are sad, but the belly is worse, in my case. I have seriously un-stretchy skin - got stretch marks during my teenage growth spurt! My belly never had a chance during pregnancy. It is totally TOTALLY covered in stretchies, and I think there's probably twice as much skin there now as there used to be. If I am on my hands and knees, my belly looks like one of those dogs that is nursing 15 puppies... It's pretty embarrassing.
I don't think there's anything that can take away that skin, except surgery, and that's not going to happen.
Oh well.

My tummy is bad too. I need something to tighten the skin some. I won't be getting a tummy tuck either.

Re: My Poor Boobs!!!

So far mine are holding up. The rest of my body has gone to hell, but my boobs are still good (knock on wood!).

I remember calling my moms boobs "long balls" when I was little.

Re: My Poor Boobs!!!

Here's my before and after pics:

I obviously didn't want to post a pic of my nip on here, so hopefully this shows enough, but it's even improved the distortion of my nipple (they were both stretched out, along with my boob). Looking at these, I think I could still do with another wrap, but it's made enough difference for me, that I'm happy and could go without.

I'm not alone after all!

I went through puberty FAST and furious, so believe it or not, after losing 80 pounds from my highest pregnancy weight (60ishpounds from 2 weeks pp), and then nursing twins for the last 8 months... They really don't look much worse or different (if at all?) that pre-preg.

That's how pitiful mine have always been. :-(
I'm totally getting a boob job when these guys wean.
