Still, "she's been open about it to friends," notes the first insider.
Richie flaunted her fuller physique while vacationing with pals in Mexico on Sept. 24. It's a stark contrast to the flat-chested bikini body she showed off just one year earlier.

The second source adds that the House of Harlow 1960 designer wanted to improve her bustline for hubby Joel Madden, 32. "The pregnancies took a toll. She said breast-feeding killed what boobs she did have!"
