I plan on breastfeeding bub till she's about 2 years old, but I've noticed my breasts are getting saggier by the day! She's only 4 months old and I went from a B cup before pregnancy to a DD now. Is it true the longer you breastfeed your child, the saggier you get? I plan on sticking to my plan even if my boobs touch the floor haha but just wanted to know some of you ladies' experiences

Re: Saggy boobs?
Its pregnancy that causes breasts to sag, not breastfeeding

Re: Saggy boobs?
With DS2 i increased again in size to an E cup. I breastfed for 2 years but my boobs would have been ruined all the same regardless.

Bf will not make them saggy but will "empty" them .. Not always though .. Also after you stop BF .. They can take 6 months to a year to " firm" up again ..

As others have said it it pregnancy that sags breasts, not breastfeeding - when you finish breastfeeding it can take a while for the breast to firm back up though.
I breastfeed 2 children, one for 8 months and one for 15 months, and my boobs did not sag - they were a bit smaller but still perky
Now i am pregnant with my third i am noticing they are sagging a little though

i was 18 when i had my ds1... i didn't breastfeed and my boobs sagged really bad!!! i was a C cup... i got breast implants about 6 years ago because i was so self concious about them!! i'm now 29 and i've now just had ds2 (and didn't breastfeed) and my boobs are a little lower, but still a great shape and just look so natural!... i was so worried about them sagging badly again, i called my surgeon about it when i found out i was pregnant and he just said to support them as much as possible, wear the best supportive bras, even to bed!! and that's what i did, the only time they were out of a support through my pregnancy was in the shower!!

It is pregnancy that causes them to sag. Breastfeeding doesn't come into it. If they are going to sag, they are gonig to regardless of whether you breastfeed or not.
They are heavy and full of milk. I suspect any body part that was filled with milk would find it a bit difficult to work against gravity too.
You may find that once you finish breastfeeding, they will return to a more desirable shape. They may not. Whether or not they sag afterwards will have little to do with breastfeeding though. A good, supportive bra will help. If you find it really bad, there's always surgery.
