As we age, our skin loses elasticity and firmness – the cause of wrinkles and sagging. Additionally, because we gain weight during pregnancy, and lose it thereafter, our skin may stretch, which can also cause sagging. Whether or not a woman chooses to breastfeed, nature is going to run its course!
What can help is proper support in the form of a good bra during pregnancy, and while nursing. Wearing a bra that is too small, does not provide enough support, and not wearing a bra at all when your breasts become fuller, can be detrimental to good breast health. Leading Lady’s fit calculator and downloadable measuring tape can help you to determine the right size and level of support you will need from morning to night.
Don’t let the fear of sagging deter you from breastfeeding if it is something you want to do. Just make sure you’re properly supported, both physically and emotionally.
