Manage a steady weight

Try to maintain a stable weight by exercising and eating a sensible balanced diet. Gaining and losing weight causes changes in the size of breasts.

After this, when you lose weight, the breast skin may appear to be stretched and the breasts may appear empty and have a saggy look. One hour of walk or half an hour of aerobics every day helps to keep the metabolism up and the weight steady. Eating whole grains with plenty of vegetables and avoiding junk food also helps to maintain a steady weight.

Do not blame breastfeeding

Most of the women believe that breastfeeding is one of the main causes of saggy breasts. But many studies and researches have shown this as a complete myth. In fact, it has been found that it is the expansion and contraction of the milk glands caused by pregnancy, rather than breastfeeding that causes sagging. In an American study, 132 women seeking breast lifts or enlargements were interviewed. Just over half of them had breastfed at least one child for an average of 9 months. Researchers did not find any difference in the degree of sagging between women who had breastfed their babies and those who had not.

The larger the size, the greater is the force on the breasts and the more they need to be restrained to avoid harm to ligaments and connective tissue.
