Some women desire bigger breasts for increased self-esteem and to feel more attractive. Women seeking changes in their breast size may not consider breast augmentation an option due to the fear of surgery, moral issues or financial reasons. You can enhance breast using a variety of at-home treatments and procedures. Most are low-cost and take just a few minutes as part of your daily routine.
Bra and Breast Enhancers
Consider wearing a push up bra filled with foam to give breasts a temporary lift and add extra curves. Bras are commonly padded with foam or water inserts to imitate the appearance of additional cleavage. Underwire bras add additional lift and form. Wearing silicone breast forms with or without a bra gives the illusion of a larger bust line. Many breast forms are self adhesive or use tape to attach to the skin. According to Beautyliesbeneath.com, silicone inserts may not last as long as traditional bras.
Exercising the pectoral muscles will give the look of larger, firmer breasts, suggests Dr. Philip Chua of Cebu Doctors's University. When the pectoral muscles grow larger, a woman's breasts push outward, giving them more prominence. Practice the "Angel in the Snow" exercise using dumbbells. Lay flat on an exercise bench. Hold dumbbells above your head, arms out and parallel to the floor. Slowly begin to circle the dumbbells around the outside of the body, as if you are making a snow angel. Return to the beginning position and repeat.
A second exercise is the incline bench press. Lie on an exercise bench, holding dumbbells on your thighs. Bring the dumbbells to the chest with the upper arm under each dumbbell. Extend the arms upward, with elbows to the sides, and then lower them. Practice the exercises two to three times a week.
A variety of herbal supplements promote breast enhancement, though no scientific evidence backs up most claims. Still, some women are firm believers in them. Common herbs associated with breast enlargement include fenugreek, fennel, saw palmetto and wild yam, suggests Mothernature.com. A variety of different treatment options are available, depending on the herb. Some are ground up and made into a paste that is used topically, while others are taken orally. Mothernature.com suggests the following herbal brew to potentially increase breast size. Boil 2 cups of hot water and pour over 1 cup of fenugreek sprouts. Add a pinch each of anise, basil, caraway, dill, fennel, licorice, marjoram and lemongrass. Allow the tea to come to a second boil, and then let cool. Drink one to two cups of tea a day. Fenugreek contains chemicals similar to female estrogen. The other herbs also may aid in breast growth, according to ancient folklore.
