Bust after having a baby.

Hello there,
I gave birth two and a half months ago and was wondering when I can expect my bosom to return to its normal size! It has gone flat and saggy, are there any exercises I can do to help, or is it normal? Should I just leave it? Thanks.

The size and shape of your bust will change as your weight and hormones change.
If you don't breastfeed, your bosom should return to its usual size shortly after the birth as hormone levels drop. You should also lose your pregnancy weight quite quickly at this stage.
It's not serious if things take a little longer to get back to normal though, once your hormones eventually level out your body will feel like it is yours again. Try doing exercises to strengthen the pectoral muscles which support the breast to help things along.
Don't worry, in a few months you will look like yourself again.
