    Enlightened,
    Hope you know that breasts do NOT have muscles in them. They have ligaments and connective tissue. When the gravity pulls the breasts down, those ligaments and the skin can stretch, and so the breast then droops. The amount of drooping depends on the elasticity of your skin and of your ligaments, as determined by your genes and diet, and also on normal aging processes.

    You can do some exercises that strengthen your chest that will make you look perky.


    Get Physical
    1. Shore up your pectoral muscles, the muscles supporting the breasts, through everyone's favorite activity--exercise.<LI id=jsArticleStep1 itxtvisited="1">Go swimming. Swimming is one of the best exercises to firm breasts, because it requires the pectoral muscles to continually work (that's why you don't see too many Olympic swimmers with saggy breasts).
    2. Go to the playground, find the nearest pull-up bar and try a few. Yes, you can do it, girl.
    3. Drop to the ground, and do as many push-ups as you can.
    Dumbbell Press
    • Lie on your back with 3-5 lb. free weights.
    • Raise the weights over your head with your arms fully extended from the shoulder.
    • Lower the weights to your chest, squeezing your pectoral muscles.
    • Raise the weights back to the original position.
    • Complete two sets of 15 repetitions.
    Butterfly Press
    • Repeat Steps 1 and 2 of the dumbbell press.
    • Open your arms perpendicular to the sides of your body, with the weights not quite reaching the floor.
    • Raise the weights back to the original press.
    • Feel the pectoral muscles working as you complete two sets of 15 repetitions.
    Give 'Em Some Support
    • Pick the right bra for you. An average-sized woman should wear a good underwire bra to help beat the pull of gravity.
    • Get more support if you're large-breasted or extremely active, because you will have more pull on your breast tissue and muscles.
    • Purchase a sports bra to give your breasts some extra help during sports activities.
