Overview

Saggy breasts are usually the result of aging or pregnancy. The quickest fix for this problem is to have implants or a breast lift. However, these procedures are costly, require recovery time, affect nipple sensitivity and may look unnatural. Instead you can try natural methods to firm sagging breasts, such as aerobic and chest strengthening exercises as well as a few behavior modifications.

Chest exercises such as pushups work all of your pectoral muscles and do not require special equipment. Strengthening these muscle groups will help lift sagging breasts. To do a pushup, lie face down with all of your body weight shifted to hands and toes. Bend your elbows and dip down to the floor as low as possible then push up to the starting position. Do three sets of 15 reps.

Aerobic exercise will increase your heart rate and burn off the excess fat on your breasts. Try activities such as cross country skiing, elliptical training, rowing or swimming for cardio training that also works your chest. If you like running, walking, dancing or jumping rope, be sure to wear a properly fitted sports bra to keep your chest stable. Aim for at least half an hour of cardio most days of the week.

Yoga is a gentle exercise that can be incorporated into your regular strength and aerobic regimen. It focuses on improving posture and works all of your major muscle groups. Overall tone and better posture will help lift sagging breasts naturally.

Smoking is detrimental to your body in many ways and contributing to saggy breasts is one of them. Nicotine constricts blood vessels, making it more difficult for essential nutrients to reach the skin. This causes skin tissue to break down, encouraging it to sag. Smoking also inhibits lung function, which creates more labored breathing during exercise.
