Im finding it hard to find any decent good fitting bra's because my boobs are in such an awful state after breastfeeding!
I got professionally measured at a bra shop and im an 8D....do you know how impossible it is to find that size anywhere else? and a $50 a bra? c/mon, seriously? I didnt buy the 1 ugly bra they had in the shop, in my size for $56.
The lady at the shop couldnt help me with anything else, i was a lost cause! I walked out feeling resentful about breastfeeding and what it had left me with.
Im 26yrs old and i have these flat (Yet a size D!!), drooping, empty, soft, wrinkled things on my chest that cant fit into any normal priced bra that can be quickly purchased at any normal everyday shop. I have SO MUCH EXCESS SKIN, i dont know where to put it all.
A boob job is not an option, unfortunately.
So, how do you feel better about post breatfeeding boobs? because right now, they are the ugliest thing on my body even though i know they were what kept my two beautiful babies alive. What im left with, is depressing and im only 26.
i want to hide them away from everyone, DH doesnt even get a touch because im embarrased by them.
I'm dreading summer...bathers....bikini's.... that i USED to love wearing.

My boobs were like that after only feeding for 10 months! I was devastated but they slowly were getting their fullness back (I'm pregnant now so very "full" boobs now)!
How long since you stopped feeding?
I am also a 8/10 D & cotton on body do stock that size if you wanted cheaper bras or go to bras n things when sales are on.
Hope you start loving your boobs again

My boobs used to be one of my favorite parts of my body because I was a full 12C. After breast feeding (and I haven't breast fed in 10 months) the are saggy full of stretch marks and I just don't feel good about them. I wear push up padded bras now so they look better underneath clothes. I keep and eye out on sales websites and I recently bought some very nice triumph underwear for very cheap at $10 a bra

Pre pregnancy I was a 12D-DD so I'll be interested to see where I end up when I'm done bfing. I already hate my boobs though, so soft and my nipples point much further south than they should at 24!

I breastfed both my kids for 6-7mths each. I stopped breastfeeding only 2mths ago with my youngest. They never came back to normal after my DD. I shrunk down to a sloppy 8B 6mths after BF DD...then i fell pregnant again and they straight away got gigantic, rediculously gigantic! i hated them then too!
I dont have much hope for my boobies, possibly in the genes as mum's are a bit worse for wear too, she said her's were never the same after breastfeeding me for 12mths LoLT
Thanks i will check out cotton on

Try Freya brand a myer. They do that size.
To save some money go try them on there. Find the one u like then order from figleaves. It's a uk shop, just google it. I've used them many times and a lot cheaper to get them posted then buy here. I used to be an 8H before I had breast reduction surgery. Unfortunately odd sizes - small band or large cup - require a bit more cash outlay.
Baby #1 due 28/03/2014!!
18 months trying, pregnant 1st round Clomid.
