There is no magic potion to make your breasts grow a cup size or two larger. However, there are some ways to make your breasts look fuller and to help keep them from sagging, which will make them look a lot less flattering. Whether you are looking for a lift or a bit more fullness, there are some things that you can do to increase your breast size naturally. Be patient while you perform one or more of these tasks on a regular basis. You may not see results overnight, but you will over time.
Anatomy of the Breasts
The breasts are made up of special gland-like structures that produce milk. The milk then flows through ducts to the nipples where the milk can be accessed by a hungry infant. Surrounding these milk-producing features are layers of fat and connective tissues. Although there is no muscle in the breasts themselves, the breasts lay on top of the muscles that make up the chest wall.
Breast size can often be determined by your genetics. You can inherit your breast size from previous members of your family. Some medical problems can cause you to have smaller breasts. Hormones, especially estrogen, can impact the size of your breasts. This is because these hormones are the signals that tell your breasts when they need to produce milk, which makes your breasts fuller and larger. Increasing these breast-swelling hormones is one way to get the look of fuller breasts – you can use a natural herbal product like Breast Actives. When genetics or a health problem are responsible for smaller breasts, there is not too much that you can do about it, though the following tips and tricks can give you the illusion of more lift and fullness.
Larger Breasts with Exercise
A good way to gain the appearance of larger breasts is through exercise. Although the breasts themselves do not contain muscle, exercises that strengthen the chest wall, shoulders, back, and even the core can help to make your breasts look perkier. This can help to create the look of larger breasts because they will not be drooping downward from weak muscles or bad posture. Exercises may involve the use of your own body weight or of hand-held weights.
Using Weights for Larger Breasts
When choosing weights for the exercises you need to perform, you can use a barbell, a set of dumbbells, or even a set of wrist or ankle weights. It is best to use lighter weights, such as those that are from three to five pounds, for the best toning effects on your muscles. You can make your own hand-held weights by using soup cans or water bottles. To make your weights heavier, you can use old water bottles and fill them with rocks or any small, heavy items you may have around the house. There are many great exercises to help lift your breasts and make them appear fuller. Perform three sets of 10 to 15 repetitions of each exercise. You can do these almost every day, though you should take a break one day a week for your muscles to strengthen through healing.
Lie on your back, preferably on a bench but the floor is fine if that’s all you have. Holding a weight in each hand, lay your arms straight out on either side of you, then bend up at the elbows, keeping upper arms perpendicular to the shoulders. Breathing out as you lift, press your hand upward and above your chest lifting the weights for a count of three. Hold in this position for a count of three, then slowly lower for another count of three.
Standing Chest Press
Stand with feet shoulder width apart holding a weight in each hand. With elbows bent, bring weights up to your shoulders with palms of hands facing forward. Extend arms out in front of you, exhaling as you go for a count of three. Hold for three seconds, then slowing bring back, inhaling, for a count of three.
Stand with feet should width apart. With a weight in each hand, hold arms out at shoulder height and bend hands up. Lift arms straight up above head while exhaling and counting to three. Hold for a count of three then inhale as you bring your arms to starting position to a count of three.
Side Arm Lifts
Stand with feet should width apart and hold a weight in each hand. Start with arms hanging loosely at your sides. Exhale while lifting your arms up until they are in a straight line even with your shoulders. Slowly lower to your start position.
Using Body Weight to Increase Breast Size
If you have no weights or wish to start slowly, there are some exercises that you can do without weights.
Push ups are a great exercise for your chest, shoulders, and back. You can do regular push ups or modified push ups on your knees. It can work different muscles to do push up variations, such as wall push ups or performing your push ups with your hands on a table or other firm surface.
Standing with feet shoulder width apart, hold arms straight out to your side. Keeping your core tight, close in your arms to bring your hands together, then open your arms back to the starting position.
Increase Breast Size with Foods
Certain foods are high in plant estrogens that mimic the effects of natural estrogen in the body. Other foods are known for their ability to trick the beasts that milk production is necessary. When you eat these foods, it boosts the effects that the hormones have on your body, creating a bit more fullness in the breasts. Certain fruits and vegetables are high in phytoestrogens. Soy products, fenugreek, fennel seeds, and flaxseeds are other good sources.
Using Massage to Increase Breast Size
Massage can increase blood flow to the affected area, which can stimulate a look of fullness. Physical manipulation of the breasts may also result in a bit of swelling and tenderness, so be sure to use an oil or cream to prevent dragging of the skin. Coconut oil, olive oil, or another one of your favorites are good choices. You can also choose a cream that is specifically created to increase breast size. Massage gently using circular motions, working your way from the center of your breasts outward. Also, you can use flat strokes to move from the outer to the inner edges of your breasts. The great thing about using massage to help boost your breast size is that your partner can join in on the massage for double the pleasure.
Moisturize Your Girls
While moisturizers can be used during massage, good lotions and creams can also be beneficial to keep the skin of the breasts soft and elastic. This can help to reduce sagging and to keep the skin looking full and healthy for the look of fuller breasts. Choose a formula that fits with your needs. Some good choices are firming and lifting formulas.
Gain Weight if You Are Underweight
Because fat tissue comprises a good portion of breast tissue, you need enough fat in your body to make sure that your breasts reach their full potential. However, it is important to note that this trick only works if you are underweight or have a very low fat content in your body. When gaining weight, choose healthy fats combined with high protein for the most benefit.
Smoking is bad for your health and it turns out it could be bad for your breasts as well. Smoking really impacts the condition of the skin, weakening the elasticity and firmness. This can result in sagging and wrinkling of the skin of the breasts. Reduce further damage to breast tissue and give up the butts for good.
While You Wait
Creating fuller breasts takes time and effort. While you wait, there are some things that you can do to create the illusion of bigger breasts. Using any of these tips and tricks can help you to gain confidence and give you the motivation to keep moving forward on your natural breast enhancing endeavors.
Choose bra that fits
A good fitting bra will keep your breasts uplifted for a fuller profile. There are special bras that can lift and add more fullness for added cleavage. If you are wearing clothing that covers your breasts, you may wish to choose a bra that lifts and separates for better results.
Choose the right neckline
Wearing clothing with a higher neckline is a great way to disguise your lack of cleavage. Additionally, you can choose necklines that are adorned, gathered, or decorated in some way to draw attention away from the breasts themselves while providing a look of more proportion. Shirts with colorful prints can have a similar effect.
