Pregnancy: Your boobs will never be the same

It’s no big secret that pregnancy changes your body in ways that cannot be reversed, especially for the poor boob region.
All I know for sure is that my boobs will never forgive me for having 2 kids in 2 years. Never.

I’ve never been well endowed in the chest area. itty bitty titty committee all the way, and I was ok with that- but once I got pregnant and they blew up to Cs, I was ecstatic. It’s what i’d always wanted but could never get without surgical enhancement… and then as soon as I got them, they were gone. And in their place were a sad shell of their former selves. No longer the small perkies i’d grown so accustomed to over the years.
Once I got pregnant yet again, I was ecstatic to once again have my bigguns back, even if just for a short period of time. I even hoped that maybe this time they’d stick around for the long haul.

No such luck. Gone again, and the tatas were even sadder this time around.

Ever since that point I have had a hell of a time finding ANY bra to fit me correctly. I am shamefully stuck between two sizes, awkwardly big, yet too small at the same time.

And as time goes on, it only seems to get worse. Each day I wake up and they seem to be a different size depending on their mood. One day, the bras that only SORT of fit when I bought them fit, and the next day they act like they are doing nothing but being a shield to my ashamed boobies.

I finally decided today to suck it up and buy a new bra. Maybe i’d just stretched mine out, and having a new one would solve all of my bra woes.
Again I say, no such luck.

I got a fitting just for good measure (see what I did there?), and was told I was a size smaller than the bras i’d previously purchased. No big shocker, I always thought my pregnancy ruined boobs were smaller than my cup size claimed- but once I tried them on, there was NO way. The smaller cup size was so tight it gave me double boob. You know what i’m talking about. It squeezed them into boob-butt.
Sigh. I gave up and went back to my fitting yet unfitting size… only… they didn’t have it in stock. My boobs are so weird that my bra size is not held in stock in BRA stores. What the hell, boobs?? Why do you have to be so difficult?

So now I have to wait for my bra to come in the mail… probably only for it not to fit correctly. And the vicious circle cycles yet again!
Remind me not to get pregnant again- I don’t think my boobs can take it.
