How to prevent sagging of breasts?

With these tips keep your breasts firm and perky

Tanya is no stranger to plastic surgery. She had a nose reshaping job in her teens. What she is worried about are her breasts - simply because they are too good right now. "I consider my bust to be my best asset and that is my problem. While I know I can simply have a breast lift when they sag too much, but what can I do to keep them perky for a long time without surgery?" she asks.

Indeed it is true that breasts start to sag the day they start to grow. It is simply the power of gravity. And while we all love large breasts, the larger they are, the faster the sagging. The drooping is also more pronounced for busty women. However, there is hope. (Related:  Breast implants)

What can you do to keep your breasts perky and firm?


Body size changes, in other words, weight fluctuations should be avoided at all costs. The breast size changes somewhat during our lifetime because of hormonal changes, pregnancy or breastfeeding. Although hormonal changes are difficult to avoid, weight fluctuations can definitely be avoided or at least kept to a minimum. Below are a few tips to maintain perkiness and firmness of breasts.

Keep a stable weight. The breasts will always lose volume if you lose weight, but it will lose even more volume if you lose it rapidly. Therefore, no crash diets or rapid weight loss.  (Related article:  Gaining weight to increase breast size)

Wear a good support bra. It is fine to wear something sexy for those special moments with your man, but at other times, make sure that your bra also provides you with adequate support. Also find your right bra size. Most women end up using wrong bra size. Some lingerie boutiques offer this service for free and find out where you can get your measurements in the area you live. A good quality bra will make your breast look better. This is especially important if you have big breasts.  (Related:  Breast augmentation pros and cons)Sleep on your back. This way you do not put too much pressure on your breasts while you sleep.

Keep the skin in the chest region moisturized. If you expose this area to the sun, always use sun block. This skin is very delicate and most women do not put a very good lotion or cream in this area. You may want to use natural oils such as hazelnut, rosehip, evening primrose or mosqueta rose. You can also use a breast cream. 

Develop a good posture. More than wearing a good support bra, good posture is essential to keep your breasts firm and perky. Take a look at the way you walk and if you have a wrong posture, try to improve it. You may need to seek assistance from a chiropractor if you cannot improve your posture on your own.

Regular exercise. As I said above, the breast has no muscle tissue, and therefore, does not benefit directly from exercising, but it benefits indirectly because you will improve your posture and develop your pectoral muscles. 

In the future, we probably will have non-invasive procedures to make our breasts grow by growing breast tissue (stem cells have potential in plastic surgery too), but at this time to have bigger/firmer breasts, breast augmentation is the only choice. Or you could do what Teri Hatcher does - use sticky, plastic tape for a fake breast lift.
