The breasts can start to droop or sag for a variety of reasons. Caused by anything from pregnancy to rapid weight loss to aging, sagging breasts can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance and reluctant to wear certain styles. While breasts are made up of connective tissues, glands and fat, there are exercises you can do to improve the appearance of your breasts. You might not turn back the clock to when you were 20, but you'll certainly see a noticeable difference.

Step 1

Perform push-ups to tone the muscles beneath your breasts. Lie face down on the ground and place your hands shoulder-width a part. Put your knees or feet on the floor and make your back straight. Lower down until your chest is close to the floor and your arms are bent at a 90-degree angle, then push back up. Repeat at least 10 times.

Step 2

Do dumbbell pullovers to tone your chest muscles and give your breasts a lift. While lying on a workout bench, hold one dumbbell in both hands. Your hands should overlap. Put your arms above your head then lower down until the weight is above your head and your arms make a 90-degree angle. Push the weight back up and repeat at least 10 times.

Step 3

Do pec presses to lift your chest muscles. Lie on the floor with your knees bent, feet flat and your arms stretched out in opposite directions. Grab onto weights in each hand and lift them until they are above your chest. Your arms should be extended and your abs should be tight. Slowly lower the weights back down to the ground. Repeat at least eight times.

Step 4

Lose weight to reduce the size of your breasts. In some cases, droopy or saggy breasts are caused by too much fatty tissue. Perform cardiovascular exercise to shed pounds. The standard recommendation is 30 minutes a day, five days a week to lose fat.
