    hey ladies,

    I was just looking for some opinions/experiences on how breast growth was effected by both pregnancy and non-pregnant weight gain.

    After pregnancy I know breasts shrink when the milk is gone, but did you keep any extra size? What about simply from gaining weight as you got older... or that you've observed from other people getting older?

    My gf is quite petite (5'4" 125lbs) and a healthy c-cup. I love her body but I also think she'd look good with some extra meat on her especially if it increased her bust.

    Or is this a thing where it just depends on where the person stores their fat?

    thanks!

    Ahhh...I fondly remember when my marriage was visited by the tit fairy. I woulda had more kids but my wife said: "Not with this wife, you ain't!" But she lost 'em after the births, so I have been in search of breasts since then...

    My wife's 45's were a bit bigger as a breast feeder and they didn't shrink that much after the birth. She retained a few pounds around her midriff that she referred to as baby jelly. I think you can look at her mother for an answer. There is a saying "Mother in law is what your wife will look like 20 years later." If she takes care of herself.

    After the milk was gone there was a good cup added and determined to stay there. Just recently (years after the last pregnancy) my breasts started to grow again, not from gaining weight though, I'm losing weight. Maybe my hormones are on the loose.

    I think it is true that some women get the breast gene's from their mothers. I know that I did. My mother did not breast feed ......I did breast feed......but I have ended up with the same size breasts that she has now. I was at her house for the Thanksgiving Holidays and I ended up having to borrow a bra from her and she and I wear the same size bra. I was able to wear her 44 D bra. (I think I have put on some weight lately, I normally wear a 42D.....must have been all that Thanksgiving food.) And I think I over produce on the estrogen.

    I never had any kids, so I cant say anything about that..

    but I have gone up and down with my weight A LOT, but my cup size has always been the same (D cup). It really does depend on the person, I guess.
