If a woman gives birth, will her breasts shrink back to normal size without breast feeding?

Some do, some don't. Most commonly, yes, after pregnancy women's breasts go back to their original size both with and without breastfeeding. Having said that, some women experience that their breasts are smaller after pregnancy, and some women experience breasts that stay larger. Age, weight gain and pre-pregnancy weight can affect this as well.
