Crash diets strain the breast tissue and cause sagging breasts. Make sure to maintain a steady, sustainable weight at all times. Avoid ill-fitting bra as it stresses the breast skin and collagen. Improve your posture and keep your breasts supported during exercise. Also, smoking and excessive exposure to the sun reduces collagen and boosts skin ageing.

Breast tissue starts aging faster than the rest of the body. Though we can’t counter genetic factors, here are few things you can be careful about to prevent sagging breasts. Here is what causes breasts to sag.

Causes Of  Sagging Breasts:

  • Crash Diets:

A balanced diet may be the key to healthy breasts.When you’re on a crash diet, you lose weight quickly and also put on weight easily in future. This causes a strain on the breast tissue. The skin tissue stretches to adjust to the weight gain, but it can’t indefinitely snap back into place when the weight comes back off again. It is very important to maintain a steady weight or right nutrition in a healthy and sustainable manner. 

  • Ill-fitting bra:

Wearing an ill fitting bra is one of the most common causes of sagging breasts. This may stress your breast skin and collagen, resulting in sagging. Go to any lingerie store, and get your right bra and cup size.

  • Bad posture:

Regular exercise can keep your chest muscles strong and firm. You must also ensure that your breasts are well supported during any form of exercise, especially high-intensity exercise. Also, keep improving your posture by walking straight.

  • Exposure to the sun:

Also, excessive exposure to the UV rays can damage your skin, and make it wrinkle and age prematurely. It is advisable to protect yourself from the sun and apply sunscreen.

  • Smoking:

Smoking can cause your skin to lose its natural elasticity, reduce the amount of collagen in skin and worsen blood circulation. It can make the skin age faster.
