As much as women love to keep this part of them attractive at all times, it is depressing to know that nature and perhaps age doesn’t help this part of them stay in shape. Having full and firm breasts is something every woman love to have. Having firm breast makes women confident; it also makes them more attractive to the men.
But the fact is, some breast sag is inevitable. Having a baby, breastfeeding, and racking up more birthdays all contribute to a loss of elasticity of collagen, the connective tissue under the skin—leaving your set more deflated than firm. Sag can also be a matter of genetics. If your mother had a droopy pair, you might be predisposed to one, too (thanks, Mom!).
Here's the thing: Some boob behaviors that seem like they have nothing to do with sag can actually contribute to it—so if you avoid them, your breasts will be better off. And considering that a recent UCLA study found that breast tissue ages two to three years faster than the rest of your body, you might want to quit any habit linked to a flaccid pair—like these.
Some of the things that could cause a woman’s breasts to sag are:
1. Crash Dieting Amazingly, going through the same routine exercise may not have as much effect on a woman’s breasts as much as weight gain and loss would. Adding weight and losing it slackens the breast tissues. Avoid yo-yo dieting
Although most women avoid breastfeeding in order for their breasts not to sag, breastfeeding is not a direct cause of sagging breasts. The breasts expand during pregnancy; breastfeeding has little or no impact on this.
2. Wearing an Unsupportive BraWhether it’s the boulder holder you wear during the day or the sports bra you change into at the gym, not sporting proper support is a big reason for droop. “The more your boobs bounce around, the more stressed breast skin and collagen become,” says Edwards. Stop in a lingerie shop and ask for a fitting just to make sure you’re wearing the right bra for your shape.
3. SmokingWhile most advert or jingles about cigarettes stresses that it is dangerous and smokers are liable to die young, smoking also affects the breast and causes them to sag over time. It destroys elastin, the protein that is responsible for the elasticity of the skin. Lower levels of elastin makes the breasts sag. Avoid smoking in order to prevent this.
4. Exposure to sun
The sun can cause premature aging and unwanted sagging of the breasts with frequent exposure to it. This could be reduced by using sunscreen. The breasts should be cared for and protected at all times.
Wearing protective clothing also minimizes the effect of the sun on the breasts.
5. High-Impact Workouts
The research is scant right now, but some experts say that the back-and-forth repetitive motions that happen when you run or do a similar workout can lead to a breakdown of breast collagen. But before you swear off the track or treadmill, read up on the details (and keep in mind that exercise helps you keep up a youthful appearance in other ways).
