A reader of mine asked me: "Hi Mr. This is Kait with an "i". How do you get that 'saggy boob' look while wearing a bra?
Let's get one thing straight: boobs are boobs. They can be round or flat, plump or small, pointy or saggy, wide-set or forward-facing. And did you know there are eight different types of nipples?
In a properly fitted bra, your breasts should look lifted, upright and perky no matter your age. If a bra doesn't give you this look, it's time for a new bra! While sagging breasts are a natural part of the aging process, the right bra can lift your breasts for a much more flattering look.
Boobs are like snowflakes. No two are the same, even if they're on the same person's body. Some are perky, and some aren't, and some are in between. And some used to be perky but aren't because, duh, life.
Saggy breasts are part of a change in breast appearance that most women experience, especially as they get older. This tends to be a completely natural cosmetic change. Still, some women may not want saggy breasts.
W hen Chidera Eggerue, now 23, was a teenager, she knew exactly what she wanted for her 18th birthday. The south Londoner never went through with the surgery. Instead, she had a revelation about body image.
Furthermore, smoking decreases skin elasticity, which can lead to early or more pronounced breast sagging. Supportive bras: Some people believe that bras help to prevent or treat sagging breasts. In reality, wearing a bra will force a breast into shape, using the structure of the bra, but it will not help prevent or cure sagging breasts.
Black women are the headhunters of the beauty revolution, reminding us all of our beauty that exists despite the patriarchal ideas that have shaped the standards for so long. Breasts are synonymous to woman, but their beauty and desirability is often minimized when they are not the right shape, the ideal size, or the appropriate amount of perkiness. Newsflash: saggy boobs matter.
Droopiness can be caused by age, dieting, hormonal changes, and gravity. But some strategies can fight it. They also get softer and less dense after menopause, as estrogen production in the ovaries is reduced.
Chidera Eggerue uses her Instagram account to promote body positivity, specifically when it comes to breasts. Eggerue started her campaign after noticing how few ads featured breasts with the normal, totally realistic amount of sag most women develop as they age or after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Eggerue says these haters remind her of why she continues to post her body-positive pictures.
