Do lactating breasts (not engorged or full) feel different and look different than breasts that aren't lactating?

The only thing that was different for me was my nipples.

In the beginning, mine were extremely firm and kind of lumpy.
After about 8 months, they felt and looked normal unless I became engorged. Then they got hard and lumpy again.

when my breasts are full they are harder and perkier than when they are empty after a feeding.

Looked and felt like I had bad implants.

When my breasts are engorged they are hard, but after a feeding they look normal and feel ohhh so much better.

I'm talking about after you've stopped lactating.
You're breastfeeding and your b**bs look one way and then you wean your child off and are no longer lactating, do your b**bs look different than when they were lactating?

I understood what you meant :)



When lactating and not engorged my b**bs looked the same as after I stopped breast feeding. The only thing that looked/seemed different was my nipples. It's kind of hard to explain, but when breast feeding they seemed soft and squishy, maybe swollen? but now they are harder and much lighter in color.

I've been wondering this too! I'm hoping to stop breastfeeding soon, and my b**bs seem normal size (as in, the same size as before I got pregnant) when they aren't engorged, so I'm hoping that's how they'll look after I wean her. I really don't want them to shrink down to nothing like some girls say happens to them.

While Bfing they looked normal and very perky but with dark nipples. After, yeah they deflated and now they look like old lady b**bs all saggy and flat. They looked so good before and during Bfing but after they went to hell. I was a small C before I was prego and went up to a DD while Bfing. Now that im prego again they still are flat and sad! I hope they decide to perk up soon. Ive already made the decision that after im done having my kids this momma is getting a b**b job. :) Im 22 and I would like to have normal b**bs once its all said and done. At least for the rest of my years. I wouldn't change my mind about BFing though. Its all worth it for their sake.



However I have some friends that have stayed their regular size and have no issues with deflating. Its all about how much your skin got stretched.
