The Breast of Times and the Worst of Times

A year ago, I was sporting 40 pounds of post-pregnancy weight.

I was not a pretty sight--my boobs however, were fucking fantastic (38D!)

I was always a 36B chick. The girls were smallish but perky, and like they say, more than a handful’s a waste.

They were nothing special, but nothing to be ashamed about either.

When I was pregnant, I loved having huge boobs. That was the only good thing about pregnancy for me.

Fast forward one year. Today I have finally shed that 40 pounds but I have lost the lovely bosoms.

My stacked set has been replaced by a couple of flaccid empty pouches.

Oh, the injustice.

It’s been such a tumultuous year for the girls. Full of ups and downs.

I think they’re beyond recovery. They’re sagging with defeat.

They have capitulated.

My only question is, what happens if I do this baby making thing again? Can they sink to new lows? How low can they go?

Boy do I ever want to know the answer to that question.

It has been the hardest thing to reconcile about the body changes post baby. I too am a smallish chested girl who was in love with her new found cleavage while pregnant and breast feeding only to be shocked to see a pair of deflated balloons in their place. I'll never go without underwire again. Sigh.

I mourn the lose of the ladies perk everytime I see myself niked. I too wonder how much more south can they point. I swear they are empty sometimes!!!! Sigh is right.

I can't say I can relate, other than that if I ever do have a baby, if they can reduce to anything smaller than they are now, I will be amazed!

When I was weaning (suddenly and explosively) I was in so much pain, but oh! they were nice (in an aggressive kind of way). At least you get them back out on loan with the next pregnancy...

Oh how I feel your pain! I didn't think I could get smaller than I was prepregnancy, but boy was I wrong - and I still have 5 baby pounds to lose. If only they were in my boobs I really wouldn't mind!!

A word of optimism - my girls have made something of a comeback about six months after weaning. Right after weaning I literally cried one day when I caught sight of them in a mirror, but they're sort of okay now, except the stretch marks which can't be helped.
