Will gym exercises help sagging breasts?

Postby Hay » Fri, 17 Sep 2004 5:17 pm

Gravity has taken over and my tits and have failed the 'pencil test'!
Not into (and cant afford!) plastic surgery. Dont believe in those creams, so i guess the only thing is to get them toned through exercise. Will exercise REALLY do the trick? Which ones? How will they help, what muscles will they be working on? HOw long will it take before i see results?

actually i would not recomend this, it depends upon the type of exercise you are under taking. Sometimes even young teenage girls's breats' sag because of jogging in bad bra's
so sometimes the bounce generated by exercise can created saggadge. Sso you must buy a bra that will support you properly.

I would imaginge that a bra that held you breasts up, prehaps bra's like shapping bra's. Either that or see a doctor however if you wish to try and fix it youreself make sure youre breasts are always well supported, prehaps a push up ra would be best for this. It is well worth a try,

from sora chan...

P.S if you want to see some examples ring up one of the local undergarment stores aand ask about the different types of bras availible... if you play youre cards right you might be able to fix it youreself... i am using the supportive bra myself because the effects aof gravity are still in their earlist stages... therefore it might be worth a try for you....

A bra is a temporary measure. I am looking for a more 'permanent' method, as i have stated earlier, to tone the muscles rather than just 'hold them up' with a bra.

i see youre point, i'm only trying to help here ok... ^_^ you do raise a quite valid point. Prehaps surgery but even if you get the surgery that doesnt last forever either, but if it would give you more confidence then go for it, i'm not the one to judge... but in regaurds to what surgery i'm not going to point you in any "procedure"'s direction, the range is large... consider the choices carefully and in detail. :D but whatever you decide.. i'll be here when you need me... :D

Exercising certainly can halp sagging breast provided you do the correct one. One of the exercise machines to use is the chest press. it has the abiltily to tone up the chest. However, as i'm not an fitness exerpts. perharps you can take a trip down to your nearest gym and ask the fitness instructor there, they will be ready to advice you. Hope that helps :D

Hi,

Exercises do help. Maybe you can strat doing some chest exercises.
A good support bra is also as important.

Cliff, are you a guy i respect guys that understand these sorts of things. I agree, both elements are important, however diet could also effect, in a major way? i am unsure but it wouldent hurt as you would need to keep the energy levels higher than usual if you are going to exercise


best wishes,

Will gym exercises help sagging breasts?

Postby Bubbles » Thu, 23 Sep 2004 10:45 pm

OK, this is from a gym bunny who's been going there for 20 years, regularly every week at least twice.

Exercises for breasts in the gym..........will only strengthen the upper chest muscles as there ARE none in the actual breast. Yes, it may give you a little uplift, but the sad fact is............hardly any, and you will have to work real hard for that.

Sorry, it's the truth. Especially if you are over a b cup. I am a D cup and have had to fight this and believe me when I tell you, nothing will reverse it, not really, except surgery. And yes, I have thought about it, but as yet have not done it. But never say never.

Hope my reply isn't too late. :( I'm sorry this seems long but please read it all, whoever you are.

I am 18, and have had this problem since I started developing. Honestly, I am very unhappy. However, I will work on firming my chest muscles, or just trying to be happy with myself before resorting to surgery. You see, your breasts often look saggy only when you are not wearing a bra, and tend to bother people the most when they have no clothes on... If you have no clothes on, however, a surgery would still make you self conscious. You could wear bikinis just fine, but underneath, you will have nasty scars. The scars don't go away, though I hear after a few years they may lighten. I would rather not go braless under my shirt than to have scars and wear tube top.... Your breasts will sag again one day, and there goes your money. It's a part of nature, unfortunately. Nature always gets the last laugh, and thanks to the media, it's harder to deal with that. Thei mage of perfection in models is often false, even. Pictures get retouched, makeup, which is unnatural, accents their features, they pay thousands of dollars an hour for fitness trainers, too...

Don't let anyone bother you about your body image, especially how your breasts look. That is something you have nearly non-existant control over, and they would look very immature for being insultive for that.

And as a closing arguement, I am sure more women have imperfect breasts than perfect ones. ;) Underneath clothes, more people go against the image of beauty than they first appear.

I suggest making yourself feel beautiful in a less expensive way than surgery, and a better investment. Maybe setting a reasonable goal for your body, and durign working toward that goal, be saving money to treat yourself to something nice, like nice sleepwear, if you know what I mean. If you go to sleep beutiful, you wake up feeling the same way. That's what I am doing. I am going to even lose more weight and then buy some beautiful clothes for myself to keep me motivated to keep the wieght off. I won't gain it back if my money and clothes end up being wasted. ^-^

Bubbles is exactly right, there's pretty much no hope when its fully developed but if you started through the development stage, it definitely would have helped.

Some exercises may help

Postby Mermaid » Mon, 07 Mar 2005 8:02 pm

:) I love this topic and the grounded way you introduced it. I am 37 but a DD and feeling the same way. I have always said that surgery would be the apsolute last resort and I would do all I could in the gym before taking that drastic step. So now push has come to shove and it is time to get serious with exercises.
But the previous post is kinda accurate - there are no muscles in the actual breast! So how to do it?
Obviously a personal trainer should have the answers and I am talking my courage up to ask one. In the meantime my partner has weights at home and has made me up a program...bench press - working on the pectoral muscles (above the breasts)...the trick is to isolate the muscles and not let the large ones do all the work. Working with weights is really fascinating and I am now sorry I have put it off all these years!... Also just found this info on the web...looks legit!

[http://baptist-health.mydiet.md/kcenter/article.asp?contentid=2592]

So good luck - just know that we are not alone and I am confident that weight loss and toning can go a long way with this. (Still wish I was born androgynous!)
