Breasts say you are a woman, like nothing else does! It’s every girl’s and every woman’s primal desire to have sexy, perky boobs. But, our lifestyle habits and age can easily take a toll on our breasts. As breasts are primarily just tissue and muscles, they need all the ‘support’ and TLC you can give them. Surgery isn’t the only thing that can give you perky breasts. Here are some simple ways that will help you have ‘perkier’ breasts.
We can’t emphasise enough the importance of correct posture – shoulders back, chest out, abdomen in, chin parallel to the floor. When you maintain an upright posture, your breathing is more effective, your spinal alignment stays intact, and…your breasts stand out in their full glory! You can easily make them appear fuller and perkier, by simply adopting a good posture.
Weight lift for breast lift
Short of a surgery, a one of the best ways to lift your breasts is by doing pectoral exercises. Strengthening your under-breast muscle will kind of pump up your breasts to make them appear fuller and perkier naturally. All you will need for these boobercises is a pair of dumbbells. If you have never lifted weights before, please make sure to start lighter, say 1kg each, and gradually move to heavier ones. Remember to never over do things. Here are a few easy lift exercises you could try:
PushUp: Start on all fours, your palms slightly wider than your shoulders, feet close together. Your body should form a straight line from head to toe. Lower down until your chest almost touches the floor. Keep your upper arms at a 45-degree angle to your torso. Pause, then push back to the starting position. Do 10 push-ups and rest 90 seconds before moving on to the next exercise.
Dumbbell Press: Lie face up on a flat, firm surface, with your arms straight in front of you, a dumbbell in each hand. Lower the dumbbells until they’re close to the sides of your chest, then press them back up to the starting position. That’s one rep. Do 10 reps, then go to move 2 without rest.
Dumbbell Fly: Lie face up on a flat, firm surface, with your feet flat on the floor. Hold a pair of dumbbells above your shoulders with your elbows slightly bent. Keeping the slight bend in your elbows, lower the weights until your elbows are even with your chest. Keep the same bend in your elbows as you press the weights back up. Perform 10 reps. Rest 90 seconds.
Yoga is not just a weight loss tool. It is in fact a wholesome health and wellness system. There are many Yoga poses which you can try to firm up your breasts naturally. An improvement in your overall fitness and body shape can be a welcome side effect of these easy poses. Start with Surya Namaskar, a full body workout to tone and energise yourself. Once you get into a daily routine of practicing this set of asanas for a week, you can move on to adding targeted poses for your breasts.
Four most beneficial poses for your breasts are Bhujangasana (cobra pose), Vrikshasana (tree pose),
Dhanurasana (bow pose) and Virabhadrasana (warrior pose). Another exercise which you are familiar with and is all the rage currently, is a Plank pose. Planking will strengthen your core, tone your upper arms and firm up the pectoral muscles.
There are many lifting bras you can chose from, like Wonderbra, that can give you a fuller, perkier appearance under clothing. But the only way to enhance the look of your breasts, would be to do pectoral exercises. Although this won’t change the breasts themselves, these exercises can help develop the muscle underneath, which might make them look ‘perkier.'”
Collagen rich food
Often when breasts sag, the skin around them starts to appear papery and wrinkly, making them look much older. By consuming collagen rich foods, you can not only improve the skin, but you can improve the tone of the breasts themselves! Collagen combines the amino acids, which are the building blocks of all our muscles. Collagen foods are also rich in vitamin C, which further enhances the process of the essential nutrient absorption in our bodies. It’s best to get your collagen from food sources, like fish, tomatoes, red bell peppers, berries, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, etc.
You can also try applying collagen rich creams topically, directly onto your breasts, to further improve their appearance. Please try to use only natural products, which use ethically sourced ingredients, for better results.
You can fight against gravity with the above hacks. But remember, if you’re looking for something longer lasting, you’ll have to consider changing your diet, exercise routine, and maybe even consider surgery.
