PCOS / droopy boobies

I hope I'm posting in the best place - this is as much about boobs as PCOS...

Anyone else have PCOS and droopy boobies?!

I've always thought my boobs were not as perky as friends' / my sister's, ever since I was a teenager. I'm now 35. I'm currently a 30F so I guess size doesn't help these days either.

Recently I was reading an article that a friend shared on Facebook about IGT (Insufficient Glandular Tissue) which can result in problems producing enough breast milk for a baby. I am thankful not to have ha such problems. But when the classic IGT breast shape was described it sounded just like my two! The cause of IGT is thought to be hormonal imbalance during puberty and a link was made with PCOS.

So I've come to the conclusion that my PCOS may have affected my breast development. Luckily it has had no practical implications for me (I have had no more than the usual BFing hiccups) but I do feel there are aesthetic consequences. (Thankfully DH has never seemed to mind so I don think I'll be drawing his attention to it!!!)

Can anyone else relate?

Any ideas for perking the little lovelies up a bit?!

YEEEEEESSSSS!!

I'm also a 30F! I've actually been to Boux Avenue this morning to swap some E cup bras!

And yes my boobs I think are not quite normal.

I also couldn't breastfeed. Not at all.

I totally relate you are not alone!! xx : D

Hmmm... Have to say that I am not in this boat. At least I don't think so.
When I was younger and slimmer I considered myself to have pretty nice boobs at about a 34-36 C/D and I could go braless before I gained a LOT of weight. It was only as I grew sideways and ended up a 38-40DD/E in my early to mid 30's that I thought my bust was a touch droopy but even then I could get away with light to medium control bras.

I had absolutely no problems with milk production as evidenced by C's weight gain approaching 500g (a bit over 1lb) per week when he was exclusively breast-fed.

Now I definitely have droopy (o)(o) but - considering I breastfed for 3 and 1/2 years, currently wear a 42E/F and am 43 years old - I don't think they are too bad...

FYI - I was first diagnosed with PCOS at age 19, confirmed again (different doctors) at 32 and 34 years and if you go through the PCOS symptoms, I don't think there is one that I can't tick off... Except for this...

I'm so jealous Rene!!! My boobs are "empty" but big, but I only have a small back.
