We hate to be bearers of bad news but the truth of the matter is that, whatever you do, your boobs will sag. Having a baby, Breastfeeding and age are all contributors to the loss of elasticity of collagen, the connective tissue under the skin—leaving your set more deflated than firm. Genetics also play a huge role in you having sagging boobs.
Here’s the thing: Some boob behaviours that seem like they have nothing to do with sagging can actually contribute to it—so if you avoid them, your breasts will be better off. Luckily for you, all hope is not lost. We’ve managed to find five activities we do usually which cause our boobs to respond more to gravity.
In case you need another reason to add to the 12,568,709,876 reasons, here is another one. Your breasts can’t escape the damage cigarettes do. Any amount of smoking weakens and ages skin by decreasing the blood supply to the skin surface.
2. Forgetting to Rub them down
Yup! Forgetting something as simple as applying moisturizer to the twins can cause them to sag. Moisturising your breasts keep your breast skin hydrated, which is important when it comes to slowing down the sag. This shouldn’t be hard to do… I mean, bae can help you out with that…
3. Crash Diet
This is especially for people who are obese; losing weight could make the breasts to sag. In the process of losing weight, a breast would also give up its fat and some ligaments and if the diet is deficient of fat and some calcium-building elements, it would eventually sag.
4. Sleeping posture
It can be tough to control how you sleep – since of course, you’re asleep at the time. But your sleeping position at night might impact how perky your bust looks by day. Bad news if you’re a side sleeper or a stomach sleeper though!! The thing is, over time, those positions can affect the shape of your breasts. Sleeping on your stomach compresses your breasts into the mattress and can prevent healthy blood flow to the area while sleeping on one side can cause the ligaments and tissue to stretch unevenly as gravity pulls the breasts down further on that side.
Your best bet is sleeping on your back or using a body pillow for support while you sleep on your side to prevent the effects of gravity from working their dark magic on your unsuspecting breasts while you sleep.
5. Wearing a bra all the time
Well according to a study published by French researchers, the ‘support’ of bras weakens the muscles in the chest, making the breasts droop.
But on the contrary, wearing a bra can help to stop premature sagging, as they won’t be bouncing around and stretching connective tissue.
Lesson to be learnt: Not everyday bra! Sometimes show them titties!
