Saggy breasts not only make women feel less attractive, but it also makes them lose self-confidence. It is a desperate situation to find yourself in.

Luckily, there are certain things you can do to keep the perfect look of your breasts longer and prevent them from sagging. However, it is best to start by looking at why breasts sag in the first place.


Ideally, breast should start sagging once you hit 40. However, should the skin lose elasticity, become old or loose, then sagging of the breasts can happen earlier. You need to keep breasts in good shape because they are made of connective tissue, fat and milk producing glands. Not muscle.

Menopause, smoking, bad nutrition, improper bras, over-tanning and rapid weight loss and weight gain can also contribute to sagging breasts.

It is also very common for breasts to sag after pregnancy, however not because of breastfeeding. It is usually as a result of stretched ligaments due to the drastic weight gain during pregnancy. To avoid this, you need to make sure that you keep an eye on your weight.

Diseases like breast cancer and TB can also cause saggy breasts. Carbonated drinks and alcohol also tend to have a similar effect.

Cigarettes and over-tanning

Prolonged exposure to UV trays destroys collagen. Smoking, which is not only harmful, also promotes the sagging of breasts.

Wrong size of bras

It is important to choose bras that have holder pads. There is a higher risk of having saggy breasts if you wear the wrong size of bra.

Wearing the wrong size of bra inhibits the growth of muscle tissues and developments. This makes bras the major reason for saggy breasts, as a French research has pointed out.

Not only does the research suggest that the breasts should be exposed to gravity, it also suggests that wearing a bra for long hours will greatly affect their appearance.

Ideally, breasts have more natural support and better developed muscle tissues in women that do not wear bras. Additionally, in women that do not wear bras, their nipples are more lifted.

Even though this particular study applies to women who participated in the research, it is worth noting that the effects are different in other women and especially those whose entire lives have worn bras.

There are a few tips that will help you not only curb saggy breasts, but lift the weight of those creams and lotions that you use to help with the situation.

You need to use plant oils, essentials oils, massages and masks and pectoral exercises to keep your breasts firm.

Proper exercise and diet

You can maintain the firmness of your breast and lose weight by just exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet. You have to ensure you balance what you do to guard against rapid weight loss or improper weight which can cause your breasts to sag.

A good suggestion that helps to melt the excess fat, strengthen the pectoral muscle and improve how you look is push-ups. Also, chest presses, dumbbell flies and lifting weights are quite beneficial.

Foods that are rich in calcium carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, essentials fats and minerals are also critical in helping to support the breasts and keep them in good shape. For even more fantastic results, eat broccoli, garlic, tomatoes, onions and carrots.

Optimal weight

Weight gain destroys the elasticity of the skin while weight loss makes the breasts lose fats which are essential in their support. As a result, rapid gain or loss of weight will give you reverse results.


The cells that are located in the skin under the breasts are largely comprised of water. Lack of water destroys the suppleness of the cells, causes wrinkles and destroys the skin. This definitely leads to saggy breasts.
