Reduced frequency of feeds and bra size

DD2 is now mostly feeding just morning and evening (except this past week 'cos of an upset tummy) and I was thinking I might treat myself to some new bras. Are my boobs likely to change size again when I stop feeding altogether or is this it? I'm planning on feeding her until 12 months then seeing if she will self wean by 18 months and if not work on stopping altogether then, or maybe not... I don't really know!

Mrs J, Hun
C still has a little suckle on the odd occasion - maybe once or twice a week. He was down to once per day for several months before that. Only recently have I noticed a change in bra size (for the smaller) - I can still wear my feeding bras, I just don't fill them quite so nicely anymore although the largest one (38G) is VERY roomy. My pre maternity bras (38D) are a bit too small, my boobs are swimming in the lovely bras that I bought in August last year (very sad as they are really gorgeous and rather expensive ones) and new ones are just not in the budget for the next few months so I am not even going to try to find out what the correct size should be. Unfortunately part of the booby size thing is also related to my weight fluctuations :(
All in all I think that I am trying to say - you will probably stay at your current size for a little while but it will still be subject to change again when your DD fully stops feeding...

Thanks for that Rene. Will hang fire for a bit then. I have some underwired feeding bras that are getting a bit big but I think that might be due to general weight loss rather than feeding. Anyway, they are comfy enough and becaus eof the wire, will do for post feeding as well. Have you thought about getting some chicken fillets to put in yours? (The gel type thingies for enhancing your cleavage, not real chicken fillets, that would be unpleasant!)

I had several sets of chicken fillets that I donated to the less fortunate in the mammary tissue department. I can live with the deflation I currently have experienced as I am still pretty well endowed anyhow lmao...

I've thought of getting some for DD to hold whilst feeding to save her pinching me. I have little bruises and scratches all round the top of my boob and I've tried giving her toys and and clothes to hold but she just wants flesh. I wondered if chicken fillets might be the solution.

Maybe stuff some pizza dough down there then she can knead it whilst feeding? May as well get her doing something useful i reckon!
