How to Keep Your Pair Perky

According to Halle Berry via InStyle, “If you don’t want your boobs to hit your knees by the time you’re 30, always wear a bra, even to bed.” There are actually a lot of factors and reasons why some breast sags and one reason might be due to genetics. Study shows that our breasts droop as we get older. According to the explanation of Dan Mills, MD, the vice president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. “Like all the tissue in your body, they’re made up of collagen and elastin, which break down as you age”. Therefore in addition to that, as one reached the menopausal period, a dense glandular tissue is substituted by fat that makes it droop.

Other people says wearing a bra can prevent your breast from sagging. This notion is actually not true. “A bra will hold up your breasts to give you the shape and look you want, but it can’t prevent further sagging, which is caused by age and gravity,” says Dr. Mills. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, running or any other tough aerobics exercise can cause your boobs to bounce up and down which results to break down of connective tissues. So it would be best to wear a supportive sports bra.

In the opinion of others, it is not really true that the right exercise contributes to keep the breasts perky. Push ups cannot actually reduce the droop as breasts are made up of fat and not a muscle so strictly speaking there is nothing to tighten and tone, but chest exercise can help to enhance the occurrence of your pectoral area by building up the surrounding ligaments which in turn makes you look more lively.
