the bre@st seems to be one part of a woman’s body that means different
things to different people, and that could be the reason why women pay
so much attention to it.
the fact that it is the source of food for a newborn baby, men see it
as more of s*x organ that makes s*x more pleasurable, and for women,
apart from its being important for breastfeeding after childbirth and
being a body part that enhances their outlook, it is one of the routes
to s*xual satisfaction, as findings have shown that fondling the bre@sts
is one of the quickest ways for women to reach or!gasm.
Such is the importance of the bre!ast, or b00b as some prefer to call it, to all concerned.
it has also been found that the firmness or otherwise of those two
soft, protruding organs influence women’s self esteem, and they also
impact on how attractive they are to men.
most men, the bigger the better, and the more firm the br!easts are the
better, which make women to do all they can to make them look firm,
including using all kinds of bras.
should be noted that the br!easts tend to sag with age and after
childbirth and or breastfeeding. But be that as it may, there are some
human activities that could increase the likelihood of sagging.
given the much importance men and women attach to the firmness of a
woman’s br!easts, it seems helpful for women to know how best the
br!easts should be treated to avoid sagging (quickly).
1. Mismanaged breastfeeding
It is largely assumed that a woman’s br!easts tend to sag after
pr!egnancy and breastfeeding, and this is entirely understandable
because of the release of some hormones and the secretion of milk which
could increase the size of the br!easts. In fact, some people assume
that with the way the baby draws the n!ipples in the process of suck
ling the mother’s br!easts, the br!easts would lose firmness and end up
being droopy afterwards.
those assumptions may not be true. According to a gynaecologist, Dr.
Bolanle Shukra-Okesina, women can retain the firmness of their br!easts
even after breastfeeding, depending on how the woman manages the
br!easts during and after the period.
said, “Breastfeeding per se does not make the br!easts to sag. If the
woman uses the appropriate bra size and she takes enough of fluid,
especially water, when breastfeeding, the br!easts will not sag, even
during pr!egnancy, the woman is expected to change the size of her bra
as the br!easts increase in size. She is supposed to use the appropriate
size at every stage because the br!easts need to be supported by a firm
the milk stops after breastfeeding, the br!easts would on their own go
back to their normal size. So, if the woman does the right thing, the
br!easts have no reason to sag.
2. Crash diet –
This factor particularly applies to women who are watching their weight
and are doing everything to lose some weight, especially people who are
obese, because according to Shukra-Okesina, losing weight could make
the br!easts to sag.
said in the process of losing weight, a br!east would also give up its
fat and some ligaments and if the diet is deficient of fat and some
calcium-building elements, it would eventually sag. “If a woman who is
watching her diet is not taking balanced diet, perhaps to lose some fat,
it can make the br!east to sag,” she explained.
a br!east surgeon and president of the American Society for Aesthetic
Plastic Surgery, Michael Edwards, in his piece on Women’sHealth, said,
“Each time a woman gains and loses weight, br!east tissue becomes
also believes that excessive exposure to the ultraviolet rays from the
sun could take its toll on the br!easts by stretching out the connective
tissues and damaging the skin.
3. Wrong bra size:
One other factor that has been found to influence the firmness or
otherwise of the br!easts is whether women use the bra that is
appropriate for their br!east size.
to the gynaecologist, the br!easts would likely sag if women with
(relatively) big br!easts do not use the size of bra that can lift the
br!easts and keep them in position.
for women who wear the kind of bras that make the br!easts to shake,
perhaps to appear buxom, Edwards warned that the more the br!easts
bounce around, the more the skin of the br!easts and collagen would be
stressed, eventually leading to sagging. Thus, women should wear bras
that keep the br!easts intact and in shape.
