a bit saggy and unproportunal (MommyB)

September 10, 2009

I am 23 years old, and I got married November of 2007. I had my son in May 2008…it was very very stressful, and i wanted my husband to enjoy my body…the only time my husband has seen my body is either filled with milk or like show below…I am not sure whether or not i was unproportional at all before i was pregnant, but I deffiently am now…its like one of my breasts got larger and stayed that way, and the other went back to the way it was before…

i believe the saggyness came from breast feeding for 5 months.

i get so frusterated about my breasts, alot of the time because I dont feel like I can give my husband the perfect
breasts he deserves and probably wants! I have a good man tho, and he just says “you are you and i love you…” :)
but it still diggs down inside me, that i am unattractive, etc…and that all other girls my age are perky and beautiful.

this site is amazing… i love it…it made me feel alot better about my chest and my body…but i thought i would show my body so those who have a chest like mine can know that they are not alone…that other girls have it too…

these pictures are taken 15 months after birth.

    Honestly, I think you look amazing. My breasts don’t look anything like yours, but I have the same “issues” after having a baby. Actually you can see my most recent post on the main page right now along with yours. Its called 3 months after a baby boy. Anyways the only thing that bugs me right now is the breasts because I pretty much don’t have any left from breastfeeding! My husband says “boobs are boobs. Big or small.” And he right! Try not to get down on yourself. Your husband doesn’t deserve “perfect perky” breasts.. he deserves YOU..His hot wife! And trust me, alot of girls our age with and without kids don’t have perfect breasts. Take care! You look great!

    Mommy B, thanks for sharing but you have got to be kidding. No one and I repeat NO ONE has two PERFECT breasts. Your husband sounds like an incredible guy and you should accentuate all of your other strong points rather than dwelling on your breasts not being TWINS. Believe me, all other girls’ breasts are not all perky and beautiful and I know you know that, lol. You have no stomach and few,if any, stretch marks. More importantly, you have a supportive and loving spouse and a body that brought a brand new life into this world. Be happy, smile, and continue to be blessed. Thanks again for sharing.

    Not ALL girls your age are “perky”! Lol
    There are many who have been through the wondering experience of becoming a mom and their bodies are beautiful in a new way! And in my opionion perkiness doesn’t necessarily equal beautiful. A beautiful woman is one who has given her body to bring another human into this world.
    I had my first at 23, in May 2008 also, and although I don’t look like I did when I was 22 I wouldn’t trade my baby boy for anything!
    Your body looks great, in my opinion! Remember, a beautiful woman is one who shines from the inside! :)

    Your breasts are fine!! I haven’t even had kids and mine are quite similar to yours. The comment I found a tad bit disturbing in your post was when you said, “i get so frusterated about my breasts, alot of the time because I dont feel like I can give my husband the perfect breasts he deserves and probably wants!”

    I can understand your frustration, but your worth is not in how perky your breasts are or the shape of your body after baby. Hun, he wants all of you. More than likely it doesn’t even compute to him the flaws you see in yourself. He loves you for you, not your breast size or how firm etc. they are. You honestly look fabulous.

    You are definitly not alone! I’m 25 and just have my first child 6 weeks ago. One breast has always been bigger than the other, even before pregnancy. And now that they are a bit saggier (from being ingorged with milk- ouch!)the difference is more exaggerated.

    In my opinion your body looks great. you have a beautiful shape and the difference in your breasts are hardly noticable.

    i think you look fantastic! i’ve had the same fears about my hubby seeing my changed breasts in the bedroom. But my hubby said that breasts that have nursed children are real woman’s breasts and way more sensual because they are so womanly, esp with the areola change. the shape of my breasts and proportion really bugs me sometimes but i love the changes of my areolas because they are larger and more pink- just really soft and womanly to look at, i think. i think your breasts are beautiful and so are you!

    My breasts look just like yours. They were a little uneven before kids, but lactation made the difference much more noticeable. They have evened out for the most part since weaning, but they are still not as full and perky as they were pre-baby. My doctor tells me that the breast changes are due to pregnancy, not breastfeeding. I think you are beautiful!

    Hi there! Thanks so much for sharing! I don’t think your breasts look terribly saggy at all. I can tell you that some breasts decide to sag even when you haven’t had children. My boobs are definitely softer and more southernly in the last few years (I’m 32) and I don’t even have a baby to show for it! So if it’s any consolation, those perfect pert boobs are often short lived regardless of whether one has a baby or not. At any rate, I think you have nice rack :) and I’ll bet your hubby does too!

    You are beautiful, you nurtured your child in your belly and then were able to nurse your child for 5 months. Your body looks like a mama. I breastfed my daughter for 18months and my breasts took a hit— however, I love them even more because they nurtured my beautiful daughter and were her life-source. Embrace your new body and breasts. Your husband sounds like a mature, wonderful man. You are blessed!

    The thing that sticks out to me from your story is this: Who ever said your husband “deserves perfect breasts”? Is he perfect? If so, then he is the first. He is lucky to have you just the way you are.

    Rather than telling you you shouldn’t feel the way you do, I’ll give you some tips!! I agree with the earlier comments that you look just fine, but I also know that doesn’t change your mind necessarily.

    I, too, have about a cup size difference between my two breasts and it drives me CRAZY! I was to the point of getting a boob job several times, after each baby, and definitely after my 3rd.

    Here are some tips. Since your husband probably doesn’t even notice the difference, the real issue is in clothes. My bras never fit right, my clothes look funny because my shirts always pull over to my larger breast.

    Purchase a bra in the size of your larger boob. Then get some foam or silicone cup enhancers. I prefer foam/cloth b/c silicone makes me sweat. You can also buy bras with open areas for inserts. Then stick the insert into the smaller side, and voila! Your breasts look even in clothes!

    Also, if you’re willing to invest a little bit of money, check out Bita Saviss bras. About $140 after size customization, but the bras are made individually to the person. They have like 80 sizes! And they will make the cup on the smaller breast padded 1-2 cup sizes for yoU!

    It’s not your husband who deserves ‘perfect’ breasts! He deserves a ‘happy’ you. Your breasts were created to nourish new life; although as someone who was a breast-addict, LOL, I also know how important they can be sexually, but that function can remain unimpared even if they don’t look ‘perfect’. Your breasts have done their job; that makes them perfect :)

    To me you look fit and fabulous, you have no tummy and your skin is gorgeous. No two symetrical body parts are exactly the same size, and to be honest I can hardly see what you are referring to. Enjoy your hot bod, I’d love to look like you and I had my DD in June ’08 trust me I’m not even CLOSE :)

    Honey, when I was your age I was a 32DD (all natural), and let me tell you–my breasts were NOT perky! My husband (fiancee at the time) thought they were great anyway. I’ve also always had one breast that was larger (like, a cup size bigger), and he never cared about that either. Men think differently about breasts than we do; they are not nearly as picky.

    Truth be told, I would love to have your breasts! I’ve been nursing for 7 weeks now and I’m up to a 34H; it’s impossible to find clothes that fit and they’re going to be down to my knees by the time I’m done! I think your chest looks great–you should celebrate what you have!

    I too am “a bit saggy and unproportunal”, and it drives me crazy. I’ve worked really hard to get everything else on my body in good shape, and my breasts still look the same. (You look GREATFor me, the baby liked nursing on one side more than the other, and so one breast got bigger while the milk in other one dried up.

    your skin looks great, and you don’t seem to have those bright red stretchmarks i have seen on many others…even your breast size is full and nice, the only thing i *might* consider is a breast lift but if your hubby doesn’t care, i wouldn’t either. plus during s**, guys can’t tell, they aren’t looking at you straight on like the camera.

    I’m the same age, same time post partum, and I look just like you. :) I really think you are gorgeous and you have a much prettier shape to your boobs than I do. I hope mine look more like yours as I breastfeed longer.
