The straight story—will my wife get her breasts back after the baby?

Author GreatDad Writers

New dads may often worry about whether their spouses’ breasts will recover their former shape and appearance. While sagging due to pregnancy is not necessarily permanent, generally breasts do sag with age. Here are some facts related to sagging in breasts:

  • Usually, about six months after a woman stops nursing, her breasts usually start regaining their pre-pregnancy appearance, though there are some cases where it may even take up to a few years.
  • Generally, bigger breasts seem to experience more sagging. Therefore, smaller breasts may seem to retain their original shape better.
  • The process of the breasts returning to their original look is supported by breastfeeding and later, by weaning the baby gradually.
  • As the natural elasticity of the tissues in the breasts continues to wear with time, some amount of sagging due to age is inevitable.
