Your breasts will change regardless of you breastfeeding or not because even if you don't choose to feed your breasts will still make milk. Don't base your decision on whether to breastfeed or not on your concerns your boobs will sag, because unfortunately your boobs will change anyway.

Any sagginess/stretchmarks you get will happen because of pregnancy, not because of breastfeeding. Seriously. Don't base your decision on that, because you signed up for that when you saw the first positive pregnancy test, sweetie!

Not wearing a bra can make your boobs sag, not wearing a proper bra can make your boobs sag, genetics can make your boobs sag. My aunt told me to keep wearing a bra my entire pregnancy, to even sleep with one. Some nights are hard to do that so I opt for a sports bra on those night. My aunt is over 50 and breastfed two babies, for 50 her boobs are really perky. Could be genetics could be the bra thing. I plan on breastfeeding but in a few weeks I'm going to go to Nordstrom's and get a proper bra fitting and get good nursing bras that will grow or shrink with my breasts. I'm 33 weeks right now.

I didn't mean to sound rude. If I did I'm sorry! I asked the exact same question. Just because you ask doesn't mean that's going to decide if you breastfed or not. Best of luck!

Pregnancy will affect your boobs. Breastfeeding keep them nice linger.

I have always been large breasted. I'm 34 weeks and 4 days and my breasts are larger than my baby bump which is measuring right on time according to my doctor.  My boobs are as perky as thry can be for the size they are , but I also wear a properly fitted bra. You sgoyld replace your bra when the straps no longer hold your chest in place. I'm a 46F and I went to a store called Motherhood to get fitted. They have great maternity bras and I even got some coupons for baby stores from the checkout girl.

I know that your boobs will definitely be affected, but it won't be too bad. I've been told that your boobs are better off if you breastfeed. But when you wean the baby, do it very gradually and try between 1 and 2 years old. That way, your boobs can slowly go back to their shape. It's kind of like losing weight. If you lose it too fast your body won't look as good as when you exercise and give your skin and body time to shrink with it.  So don't just like cold turkey quit breast feeding.

But if you do quit just like that, it won't make your boobs too saggy. Because I did, they're not the same but they still have some perk in them. If you learn how to do those peck exercises that can help keep them perky. Try to research different thimgs you can do to keep them nice
