Here are few facts about the causes and possible ways to tackle this issue proactively.
What Causes Breasts To Sag?
Breast tissue starts aging faster than the rest of the body. Crash diets strain the breast tissue and cause sagging breasts. Make sure to maintain a steady, sustainable weight at all times. Avoid an ill-fitting bra as it stresses the breast skin and collagen. Improve your posture and keep your breasts supported during exercise. Also, smoking and excessive exposure to the sun reduces collagen and boosts skin ageing.
Does Breast-Feeding Cause Saggy Breasts?
Lactation creates denser tissues in your breasts. After breastfeeding, both the fatty tissue and the connective tissue in your breasts may shift leading to saggy breasts. Once you stop lactating, breasts may appear less full, smaller or saggy. Other causes for saggy breasts include number of children, weight gain, breast size and shape, smoking, genetics and age.
