How Do I Perk Up My Bust?

I am 19 years old, 34C but recently I have noticed my bust isn't as high as it should be. It's quite saggy and for my age I find this a bit weird. I am a size 8 in clothes so I know I don't have a lot of fat on me but surely because I am skinny this can't mean my bust will sag, does it?

My Answer

Honestly, I am not the "best" person to answer this....I'll try my best.....

I think lack of exercise could have caused this "sagging".

And genetic make up could play a part too.

Sagging of breasts occurs naturally to all women at some point. This is because breasts do not have muscles in them. They only have ligaments and connective tissues.

When the gravity pulls the breasts down, the ligaments and the skin could stretch and so the breasts droop.

The extent of "drooping" and "sagging" depends on the elasticity of your skin and of your ligaments, as determined by your genes and diet, and it also depends on the aging process.

Another cause for sagging is when you lose too much weight in too short a time.

This is due to the fact that some of the fat would melt away from your breasts. As the skin and the ligaments inside your breasts do not align accordingly, your breasts would end up looking "down".

That said, I am more inclined to believe that you may be overly-conscious of your breasts to think that they sag.

Don't build images of breast shapes based on those projected by supermodels, actresses and movie stars.

Nine out of ten of them have been fixed and changed and the photos airbrushed, modified, you name it.

You would then define beautiful breasts as like the perky ones these actresses, movie stars and supermodels have.

Anything less than that is sagging, drooping, weird, even.....

Naturally, when comes to sagging breasts, there's not much you can do (but I really think yours is not sagging, honestly).

I really believe exercise helps to a certain extent. Try this chest routine as it helps strengthen and firm up your chest muscles which in turn lend good support to your breasts, making them "stand up" more uprightly.

Besides exercise, I think it helps too if you eat foods that provide extra good nutrition for your skin.

Try vitamin C. It is crucial for the collagen synthesis within skin. Flax oil is good too as it keeps skin from drying.

Don't go for surgery because the results are not going to be permanent as the skin and ligaments will stretch again eventually.
