Aging causes the breasts in women to lose their elasticity and eventually leads to sagging. It is pointless for a middle aged woman to expect her breasts to look the same as they were when she was 20. However, following few simple tips can slow down the sagging process.

Avoid See-Saw Weight Loss and Gain

The skin around the breasts is prone to stretching as it is relatively thin. Women who are suffering with weight loss issues subject their skin to a lot of shrinking and stretching. As breasts are composed of fat mainly, sudden fluctuations in weight can cause breasts to droop.

Give the Bra a Break

Many women are under the wrong impression that breasts wouldn’t sag by wearing bra day and night. However, excess of support can result in weakening of pectoral muscles and enhances the rate of the drooping process.

Ensure to wear a good support bra during Cardio

Cardiovascular exercise and high-impact sports such as aerobics and running can lead to loss of elasticity. As breasts are supported by ligaments, the stress due to vigorous exercise can result in decrease in elasticity.  A good sports bra should:

  • Restrict the movement of breasts during strenuous activities
  • Should offer individual cups for women who are large breasted
  • Should offer firm straps
  • Must not stretch when pulled
