The shape and size of your breasts change both before and after breastfeeding. To prepare for nursing, breast tissue and milk-producing glands enlarge and become fuller. Once you’ve finished breastfeeding, they shrink back down to their previous size. You may then notice that your breasts are softer and less full than when you were nursing, resulting in a droopy appearance.

The extent to which your breasts regain their pre-pregnancy size/shape depends on many factors, including age, weight gain during pregnancy, and even genetics. Also, if you’ve ever been a smoker, your skin may have less elasticity and therefore be prone to sagging.

Nipples after breastfeeding

During pregnancy, high levels of estrogen and progesterone affect the nipple area as well. Your nipples might increase in size, and the surrounding areolas can darken and develop striae, or lines.

Constant breastfeeding could also cause pain and soreness in your nipples. It’s unknown whether or not they’ll eventually return to their original shape and/or colour.

Does breastfeeding lead to sagging?

How to prevent sagging breasts

Although circumstances such as age and genetics are beyond your control, there are still several ways you can help slow your boobs’ downward march.

Ensure your breasts remain well-supported through the inevitable changes of pregnancy by picking the right bra size. Wearing a poorly-fitted bra, especially when you’re physically active, could lead to pain and injury. Also remember to remove your bra before sleeping, as it hampers blood circulation.

Your breast glands, fat cells, and ligaments probably won’t benefit from working out, but the muscles below your breasts (called pectorals) can. Toning the pectoralis major and minor will give your boobs a slightly more lifted appearance. Consider adding push-ups, chest presses, and free weight exercises to your routine.

  • Moisturize and exfoliate your skin

Hunched shoulders and poor posture equal unsupported breasts. If you’re not staying mindful of your posture, this will only add to your saggy appearance. Keep your shoulders back and your spine straight as much as possible.

Stay in peak condition for nursing and trim unwanted pregnancy pounds by eating a well-balanced diet rich in whole grains and vegetables. Replace high-cholesterol, saturated animal fats with olive oil, vitamin B, and vitamin E which combat wrinkles and improve your skin’s tone and elasticity.

Studies have shown that smoking significantly reduces your skin’s ability to repair any damage done to it. The regeneration of skin cells in your body is hindered by heavy tobacco use, leading to premature ageing, dryness, and wrinkles. Preserve the shapeliness of your breasts by saying no to cigarettes.

Hot water opens your pores while cold water tightens them up. That’s why alternating between water temperatures in the shower is thought to be an effective method for boosting blood circulation. Increased blood flow creates an even tone, delivers vital nutrients, and detoxifies your skin.

Minimize stretching by propping your newborn up on a pillow and raising them to a comfortable height when breastfeeding. Try not to lean over or angle your breasts downward because, over time, daily feedings will only aggravate droopiness.

If you’re ready to begin weaning your child, it’s wise to do so gradually to allow fatty tissues enough time to redeposit in your breasts. Decrease the frequency of nursing sessions little by little to restore your boobs’ pre-pregnancy form.

Similar to weaning, post-baby weight loss is a process you should never rush. Allow your body to adjust to all of these changes. An abrupt shift in size produces loose, excess skin, especially around the breasts, which can no longer bounce back. Eat healthily and work out in moderation if you want to slim down safely and sustainably.
