Could bras actually increase sagging? -- The Doctors
Do Bras Make Breasts Sag?
Here's the start of a study you don't hear every day: Researchers examined women’s breasts for 15 years…No, it’s not the start of an epic sexual harassment case, it’s a new French study. The finding: Wearing a bra may contribute to breast sagging.
Researchers looked at 320 women between 18 and 35 over the course of 15 years and found that nipples were ¼-inch higher for each year spent without wearing a bra. “The tension caused by not wearing a bra may increase collagen growth, making breasts higher,” says Stafford Broumand, MD, an associate clinical professor of plastic surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center, who wasn’t involved in the research.
The good news is that you don’t need to go braless for perkier breasts. Try working the underlying muscles instead. “Strengthen your chest and back to create balance, improve your posture, and lift your breasts,” explains Wayne Westcott, PhD, director of fitness research at Quincy College in Massachusetts, andPreventionfitness advisor. By building your pectoral muscles, you slightly increase the firmness of your breasts, making them perkier. But Westcott warns, “Stronger chest muscles will lead to poor posture if you don’t work on your back, too.” This means you’ll slump forward, pulling everything (including your breasts) down.
Westcott suggests pushups to address your chest muscles (here’s how to master pushups in 3 steps) and rows to strengthen your mid-back (click here for a video how-to).
So while you can’t change your actual breasts without plastic surgery, sculpt a fit body and everything else will fall into place. Or, in this case,notfall into place.
