Breasts are impressive and fascinating organs. Women’s breast shape, size, and perkiness or sagginess change about six times throughout their lives.
The medical term for sagging breasts is ptosis. Breast changes such as ptosis happen naturally with age. Since there are so many factors that contribute to sagging, you can’t completely prevent it. However, there are some things you can do to try to keep your breasts from drooping.
- Practice good posture. When you slouch and have poor posture, you’re giving gravity more opportunity to pull at your breasts. But, standing or sitting in a good position with your back straight and your shoulders back, can help support the breasts and even give you a natural lift.
- Maintain a healthy weight. Eat a well-balanced diet, get a little exercise, and try not to gain or lose weight too quickly.
- Drink plenty of water. Keep your skin healthy and hydrated to try to preserve its elasticity.
- Don’t smoke. Quit or don’t start smoking. It’s not healthy for you or your breasts.
