I breastfed for a combined total of 5 years (3y10m + 15 mo), and then also lost all baby weight (I'm 5'9", 62kg), and unfortunately mine have not recovered. They're not horrible, but I am definitely keen to have a boob lift eventually.
Pre-kids I was about a 12D bra, and am now *just* a 12C (ie not exactly busting out of it, but definitely not a 12B).

Mine are empty windsocks. But this also has to do with pregnancy and not just breastfeeding.
I was a 12c before, a 12-14dd during & after pregnancy.
After having 2 kids and bfeeding, they are a saggy 12c.

After my 1st bubs, they were saggy, baggy socks. Feeding DS3, they are definitely how I prefer them, I might keep feeding forever, not looking forward to seeing them after after 4 babies!!

I hate mine they Are socks with sand in them & I didn't BF either of my children more from the preg weight gain n loss. I was 10b before. DS I got to a 14f wearing my mums bras. Went back to a 10e fell preg with DD they're now 10d-dd depending on fit of bra & they're just not plump or firm like they used to be

I'm carrying a little extra padding so mine aren't really 'empty' looking, they definitely aren't as perky - but that comes with age too I suppose - but the nipple and areola has changed a heap - my nipple now folds up into the bra it is so long and my areola is a lot bigger than it used to be.

Mine were crap to start with all breastfeeding has done is fill them up a bit, I haven't weaned yet but I have always wanted to get a reduction and lift, was just waiting until post-breastfeeding.

I fed DS for 12mths and they were fine after. Fed DD for 12mths and nearly 3yrs on the are like little ski slopes, they never recovered. I was a 10b and I had hopes that I'd retain my fuller look but sadly not

I've recently weaned DS after a total of 5yrs, 9months of pregnancy and/ or breastfeeding. I had a couple of short breaks while pregnant, but fed for about 4 years in that time.
It's been 8 weeks since I last fed DS, and I've lost a bit of size, mostly on the top, so my boobies are more ski jumps now than they used to be. Nipples always give the impression I'm cold, so I'm wearing padded bras!
But underwires make a great difference and in a bra they look pretty good. Without a bra, I feel like I have pancakes on my chest.
Size wise, I'm pretty much where I was pre-first pregnancy.
I've weaned slowly all 3 times, so I think that may have helped.

Ah well, what will be will be I guess. I did have a quick read of something that backed up the idea that weaning slowly was better, and also that having a diet high in saturated fats while breastfeeding was also beneficial... That was from someone keen on Weston Price, so anyway... time will tell.
I used to be 14C, I'd be happy to end up 14B
