Overview

Many women turn to cosmetic surgery to enhance their breasts or increase their breast size. However, there are natural methods to increase breast size—and even the appearance of bigger breasts. As there are no muscles present in the breasts, only fatty cells and glands, there aren’t exercises that can actually make your breasts bigger. But underneath the breasts lie the pectoral muscles, which, if built up, can make your breasts look higher and more firm.

Fenugreek

This herb is used by mothers who are breastfeeding to increase milk supply. It also increases healthy breast tissue, so it can enhance the look of breasts, too. Fenugreek has an age-old reputation as a breast enlarger and contains diosgenin, which is used to make synthetic estrogen and has been shown to promote the growth of breast cells. Fenugreek is available in capsules or tea form.

Talk with your doctor before taking any herbal supplements, especially if you are taking medications of any kind. Herbal supplements have a biological effect and might be harmful if mixed with other medications.

Saw Palmetto

Used for centuries, this herb, among other uses, can increase a woman’s breast size. It blocks male hormones and allows female hormones that contribute to breast growth to become more prominent. Saw palmetto is a common ingredient in most breast enlargement pills.

Fennel

This is a tasty vegetable that can be eaten, consumed in a tea form or massaged into the breasts. It acts as a dose of estrogen to the body, which can overpower any male hormones and cause your breasts to grow.

Pectoral Press

Start with five-pound dumbbells. Lie on your back with your knees slightly bent; you can lie on the floor or use a bench. Extend your arms straight out to each side. Then slowly bring them together in front of your chest. Hold for one second, and slowly lower them again. Repeat this 10 to 12 times for three sets.

Push-ups

Start by lying on your stomach. Cross your feet, and put your hands flat on the floor, just in front of your shoulders. Slowly lift yourself until your arms are extended and you’re balanced on your palms. Keeping your back as straight as possible, bend your elbows and lower yourself back down until you’re parallel with the floor. Try not to touch your chest on the floor. Do two sets of 10.

Push-ups may be done either with or without your knees touching the floor.

Incline Bench Press

Using dumbbells or a bar, lie on an incline bench or board. Bend your arms at the elbow until the weights are nearly touching your shoulders. Push up until your arms are fully extended, but without touching the weights against each other (if using dumbbells). Repeat for two sets of 12.

Butterfly Press

Using dumbbells, sit upright (this exercise can also be done on an incline). Put your arms all the way out from your body. Using your pectoral muscles, extend the weights straight out in front of your chest. Repeat this for three sets of 12. There are also machines at the gym that specifically mimic this motion.

Wall-ups

These are done by standing about two feet away from a wall. Place your hands on the wall at about chest level. Lean slowly toward the wall using your arm and chest muscles until your nose touches the wall. These are also known as standing push-ups.

Yoga

There are a variety of yoga poses that encourage breast enhancement, according to Ayurvediccure, a website that promotes natural remedies and supplements. Those include Stabdhasana, Dwikonasana, Sajah Stabdhasana, Bhujangasana and Ushtasana.

Swimming

Swimming is a superb exercise that can enhance your bust by exercising the pectoral muscles against the water's resistance.
