10+ Years Later (V)

February 10, 2009

I am 28 years old, and had my child when I was 17. When I got pregnant I was 5’6″ and 101 lbs. and barely an A cup. I was never happy with my weight and wanted to weigh more, and wished my breasts were bigger.

Well, I got my wish! I had a beautiful baby boy 3 months before my 18th birthday. And at my heaviest pregnant I was 139 lbs. I had stretch marks on my belly, breasts, thighs, upper arms, everywhere it felt like. They were very deep purple. Those have all gone away or turned into silvery lines, as you see in the pictures. I quickly lost weight, and was back down to 115 easily. But I did not want to be that small.

I’m now 135 lbs and I’m very happy with my body except for my saggy breasts. They hurt my shoulders, I can’t fit in anything sexy, I can barely find a functional bra. I really have a love hate relationship with them. My husband loves me how I am. And they fed my son and will feed future children (we’re trying again now to have another baby).

Part of me wants a breast reduction so badly. But I would never ever do that, unless I start to have bad medical problems. I’m just not that concerned about my looks to have a surgery. It’s not worth the risks.

The pictures are of me now at 28 years old. 10 years 7 months post-partum.

    Hi, I think you look great and if you like to leave your breast as they are that’s also fine, but as someone who had a breast reduction I can tell you that, besides the vanity aspect there’s a bunch of health problem you can be avoiding if you decided to go that route, for me by the time I was 18 they were so heavy I had shoulders, back and waist aches all the time, so I got the surgery, and yes they look fine but it also save me tons of pain……..dunno just talking from my experience but large heavy breasts can be a pain sometimes for more reasons than looks.

    I think you look great, I have big boobs and find it hard to find nice bras too! Should really start a business! Good luck with the next baby and enjoy!

    Nothing wrong with your breasts! They look fine! Very natural, which is good.

    I think you have an awesome body. I had my first at 19, so you give me hope that I can too have another baby like 10 years or so later.

    I too have big breasts. I just found a website that carries bras in all sizes, figleaves.com. I’m a 30E. Definitely get a band small enough measure yourself and a cup big enough.

    I’d be lying if I agreed with you. I think you look beautiful and natural. You look like every woman in my family–beautiful!

    Hi there, you have a great body. I had small saggy breasts at 22 (from gaining and losing weight so much). I ended up getting a boob job and that helped a bit, but now I really wish I had gotten a lift instead. I definately understand how the shape of your breasts can affect how you feel about yourself. Ive gained weight since my breast job and so they seem large and saggy now. Not really saggy, still much more full and better than before… After my son is born I may get a lift and go with a smaller implant. Or I may just lose weight and see how that helps. Either way, my point is… you look great, but I know how you feel.
