Great article! For me the biggest myth I had was not believing that "size doesn't matter" - I always heard that, but seriously I had trouble filling out an A cup and could barely find bras small enough, I thought I really might not make enough milk. Instead I nursed on demand, round the clock, my baby topped the growth charts in both height and weight without ever taking a bottle, and I had a touch of OVERsupply (had to do some block feeding to keep it in check). Apparently the vast majority of boob you see is just fat storage, not mammary glands, and my boobs are like pure mammary gland tissue with no fat at all! I went from 34AA before pregnancy, to 36C/D when BFing, back to 36A or so within 2 weeks of weaning. Crazy.
