Breasts are a beautiful thing, but with age, they begin to sag. Every woman wants to have perfectly shaped breasts that remain that way throughout her life; sadly it just doesn’t work like that.
The physical process usually sets in when a woman reaches her 40’s, certain factors can lead to a woman developing saggy breasts at a very young age, even as young as early to mid 20’s. Finding out the exact reason for saggy breasts is half the battle won in trying to find out a way to correct them.
- Improper Care
- Nutritional Deficiency
- Existing Medical Ailments (Breast Cancer, tuberculosis etc.)
- Wrong Sized Bras
- Gravitational Pull
Now we come to the fun part, fixing the problem in its tracks. Most women opt for surgery to correct sagging breasts, but in addition to being extremely expensive, these surgeries would not deliver desirable results in most cases. Not to mention the worry of side effects that could be detrimental to the individuals overall health.
Natural Remedies and exercise are a more suitable alternative. In addition to being equally effective as the other conventional treatments, these remedies will not cause harmful side effects and they don’t cost as much either. Here are some of the best and most common home remedies for saggy breasts.
- Nutritional Deficiency
You are probably asking yourself how a nutritional deficiency can affect the firmness of your breasts. But, in fact, deficiencies can prevent the nutrients needed for breast growth and support from reaching the breasts. A simple protein deficiency can result in the breast muscles losing their strength and firmness, thereby leading to saggy undesirable breasts.
So, the solution would be to eat foods that are nutritionally rich and contain essential nutrients like proteins, vitamins, calcium, minerals, carbohydrates and essential fats.
This is a no brainer, you must incorporate exercise into your daily routine. Exercises that target breast tissue and pectoral muscles around the chest.

- Push ups
- Chest Press
- Chest Pulls

- Ice Massage
Ice massages are a wonderfully effective way to lift those sagging breasts. The cold temperature will cause the tissue to contract, in turn making the breasts appear firmer and more lifted.
Take 2 ice cubes and massage them in circular motions around each of your breasts for one minute. Dry the breasts with a soft towel and immediately put on a properly fitting bra. Stay in a reclining position for 30 minutes. Do this at regular intervals throughout the day.
- Regular Massage
Aside from ice massages, regular massages are a great way to get those breast back in shape. Massaging your breasts in an upward motion for at least 15 minutes every day can be great for your saggy breasts. Repeat rubbing generates heat and energy improving blood circulation to the breasts; strengthening the connective tissues and muscles, thereby preventing breasts from sagging and improving the breast shape effectively.
Massaging with olive oil is another excellent technique if you want firm lifted breasts. Olive oil is a rich source of antioxidants and fatty acids that can reverse the damage caused by free radicals. It will also improve skin tone and texture.
- Cucumber and Egg Yolk
Cucumber has natural skin toning properties and egg yolk has high levels of protein and vitamins that can help treat sagging breasts.
Puree a small cucumber in a blender and mix in one egg yolk and teaspoon of cream. Mix the ingredients into a paste. Apply the mixture onto your breast and leave it for around 30 minutes. Wash thoroughly with cold water. Use the mask once a week to firm and strengthen breast tissue.
- Bra Fitting
A wrong sized bra can make your breasts sag in no time. Not wearing a bra at all doesn’t do you any favors either. Your best option is to opt for bras that have special support holders or pads at the bottom of the cup. These would keep your breast in place and prevent sagging. Go to a bra store and have someone fit you to ensure that you are wearing the correct size.
- Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera has natural skin tightening properties that can help get rid of sagging breasts. The antioxidants present in aloe vera prevent damage caused by free radicals and help firm sagging breasts.
Apply the gel to your breasts and massage gently in circular motions for 10 minutes. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes and then wash it off with cold water. Repeat this 4-5 times a week to get the desired results.
