It is said that the breasts are the true symbol of a woman’s beauty and femininity. Sagging of breasts can be due to many natural and also unnatural reasons like ageing, drinking alcohol, smoking, pregnancy and even over-exercising. While the natural causes cannot be avoided, there are surely ways to prevent the unnatural sagging of the breasts.
Wear properly fitted bra
Gravity affects your breasts the most as compared to other parts of your body. Wearing ill-fitted bra is one of the most common reason behind breast sagging. It is essential that you know your breast size and the cup size and wear bras that fit you perfect to prevent sagging and also improve your overall appearance. Your breasts should not be bouncy and spilling out after wearing a bra. Tighten the straps or replace the bra, if the straps become loose. If you are unsure about your size, then consult a professional and have them measured properly.
Massage your breasts daily with some moisturizer to keep the skin soft and supple and help the breasts maintain their elasticity. Just massage your breasts gently in circular motion clockwise and anti-clockwise for about 10 minutes every day. This will improve the blood circulation in the tissues present in the breasts and hence, keep them soft and elastic. You can even use aloe vera gel, almond oil or any other vegetable oil.
A healthy and balanced diet can go a long way in preventing breast sagging. Vitamin E and D keeps your skin healthy. Whole omega-3 fatty acids can prevent the risk of breast cancer. Eat a lot of green leafy vegetables, fishes, carrots, whole grains etc.
A balanced diet and regular exercise can help you to maintain a steady weight. Weight fluctuations result in stretching of the skin tissues and this affects the elasticity of the breasts in a bad way by enhancing the tension between the connective tissues present in the breasts. It is important that you stick to your recommended weight and maintain a steady BMI to avoid breast sagging. This would prevent many other health problems.
Too much of anything is bad and the same goes for exercising as well. Excessive running can be really bad for the elasticity of your breasts and this can be more prominent, if you have large breasts. The weight of large breasts can damage the connective tissue and ligaments present in the breasts. Make sure that you wear a proper sports bra while jogging or doing any other kind of exercise. Maintain a correct fitness routine to keep your breasts firm and do not include too much of jogging in that. Push-ups and chest presses can help.
Keep your system hydrated and drink enough water every day. Dehydrated skin can become wrinkled and saggy. Keep the skin moist to prevent sagging and apart from water, you can also drink a lot of fruit juices as well.
These are some of the simple ways to avoid sagging breasts and keep them perky.

When asked about how she manages the two very different professions, she says, “Construction business is what me and my husband who is a civil engineer dreamt of together and I am glad we succeeded but writing is something I have been doing years before I stepped into the construction world. I was very young when I realized that there was a hidden passion for writing in me and I unveiled it through my school magazine for the very first time and there has been no looking back since then. Though construction contributes more in running my world, writing is something that completes me.”
