    Doesn't that suck? I wish you could pick and choose where you lose your weight from. I would love to keep my boobs and lose it all from my thighs and my butt, but my boobs are always the first things to shrink.

    I think most women deflate after BF. The way I view it, its a sacrifice we make having kids. All kinds of body parts are now worn out after my two! The boobs are just one.

    But what I traded, I got back in my LO's.....

    What can ya do!

    Dude
    You weaned while pregnant. Not the same at all. Jury is still out on your nursing boobs. I am sure they will be buff when you are done. Just like the rest of you.

    Way too lazy for formula

    WOW! Thanks for all the responses. It sounds like I have a pretty good chance of getting small again, which is what I'm hoping for. Right now, I'm as thin as I've ever been except for my chest. I'm in a wedding in August, and I'm impatient to get my dress fitted but want to wait till I settle out.

    Next question: I can still squeeze out milk sometimes. When do I dry up altogether?

    Thanks, LLLadies!

    Men... Someone posted a picture of me on their facebook page yesterday which then went to my facebook page. It is horribly unattractive and makes me look about 20 lbs heavier that I actually am. I showed it to him, hoping he would say 'ah, it's not that bad'. He took one look at it and said "um, yeah, you might want to email her and ask her to take it down." Thanks, I feel much better

    Same here. Before my 1st pregnancy, I was a solid 36B/C, while I was nursing they didn't get much bigger and were still a ~B/C, and now that we are weaned, I would be lucky to call these boobs a B. They are probably a large A, or a small B on a good day.

    I am so glad I found this thread! Glad to know I am not the only one who got smaller. I was a 32C pre-baby, a 36D Pregnant (I gained a lot ) and pretty much a 34 C nursing (it doesn't make sense, but I gained a lot of extra weight around my ribcage). Now I am barely a 32B and very saggy.

    As far as the milk, I could still sweeze a touch of milk out for a couple of months or so after I weaned until it all dried up.
