I know that my breasts have become larger since my son was born, but it was my understanding that they would shrink a bit after I weaned him. Is this an urban legend or does it take a looong time? He's been weaned for 9mos now and they are empty but still measure a 38DD/E.Secondly, if my boobs are supposedly so big, why do they look so damn small! I know they are empty now, but when I look at myself in my lovely truth telling bras, they look about the same size as before my son (36B/C). Does this have something to do with the size of a rib cage? My boobs didn't measure all that small before either, but braless wasn't a problem at all and they behaved more like an A. I dunno. The mysteries of boobs!
