You might be worried about how you look in that perfect LBD or in your swim-suit. If you are worried about sagging breasts, then it is probably due to your body type, the type of diet you are on, age-related issues, pregnancy and of course, lack of exercise. As they grow old, many women tend to lose the firmness of their breasts. The breasts sag down and reduce the overall charm and grace of a woman. Many women, due to frustration and anxiety, tend to resort to surgery in order to get back, that same firmness. Though, it may sustain for sometime, surgery is definitely not very efficient for recovering the natural firmness of the breast, but is recommended as a last resort in some cases. Also, all those ‘magical’ creams, over-the-counter pills and other products that are sold in the market that guarantee the firmness and growth of breast tissue, do not really help that much. This is because of the fact that, the breast is made up of mostly fat stored in the adipose tissue and is not the tissue itself. Check out how to firm up your breasts by following the exercises given below.
Exercises To Firm & Tone Breasts
Modified Push Up
In the modified push-up, you need to lie down on your stomach, while bending your knees and crossing your ankles. Bend your elbows and keep your palms flat on the floor, parallel to your shoulders. Now, lift yourself up by straightening your arms, in a way that your body is balanced on your knees. Your chin should be tucked towards your chest and your forehead should face the ground. Your abdomen should be tight and you need to hold your breath. Now, slowly come down, while bending your elbows and lowering your body together. Instead of touching the chest on the floor, lower yourself until your upper arms are parallel to the floor. Do 2-3 reps in a week.
Lie down on your back and place your feet flat on the floor. Take a dumbbell in each hand and push up your arms, so they are right above your shoulders and the palms face away from you. As you inhale, pull your abdomen in and make sure your back remains straight and does not arch. Your chin should be tilted towards your chest. Lower the dumbbells to your side till the elbows face the ground. Push up again with the help of your shoulder blades and don’t lock your elbows.
Lie down on the floor and support your head, neck and upper back with pillows. Take a dumbbell in each hand and press the weight right above the chest, with your palms facing one another. Imagine you have a barrel lying on your chest and you need to spread your arms wide to take them around it. Maintain a constant bend in your elbows and then lower your arms so that, the elbows almost touch the floor. Lift up the weights and complete 1-2 sets.
Hit the gym! Or practice some yoga at home. Losing weight in some cases can help droopy or saggy breasts tone and can help you get rid of excess fat. Cardiovascular exercises are not only great to shed a few pounds, but also help in stimulating growth cells that will help your breasts appear firmer.
How To Firm Up Your Breasts
There are other ways of firming up your breasts than just exercising or walking on the treadmill. You can now try hydrotherapy and if nothing works for you, you still have the option of visiting a renowned plastic surgeon for some advice!
Yes, hydrotherapy can be just as effective as burning a couple of calories in an hour. Not only does hydrotherapy improve your health, it also increases the circulation of blood in tissues in your body. So how does this help your breasts? The next time you step into the shower, spend a few minutes alternating between hot and cold water, while massaging the glands under your breasts in a circular motion. Continue alternating between hot and cold water for several minutes. This will stimulate the production of collagen in the tissues and the development of skin proteins that are required and responsible for toning the breasts. The end result? Firmer skin and a beautiful body!
Most women, at some point in their lives, feel conscious about the size and shape of their breasts. If these natural breast firming techniques do not work for you, you could try surgical methods that can help increase your breast size by two cups. However, give this a try first and you will definitely see a noticeable difference!
