9 Bad Habits That Make Your Boobs Sag

Our crazy-hectic schedules, breast pumps, and that inevitable thing called time do us no favors when it comes to keeping our ladies looking up. Lucky for us, though, all hope is not lost. Turns out, there are some ways you can slow down the sagging process, says Dr. James C. Grotting, M.D., president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. All you have to do is be wary of these sneaky habits:

You don't drink enough OJ.

It's not just good for getting rid of that nasty winter cold, says Grotting. In fact, your breast tissue desperately needs vitamin C and B to build supportive elastic tissues and collagen so that they can maintain their shape. So, you might want to consider drinking a small glass of OJ in the A.M. in addition to your skim latte from now on.

You eat chips, candy, and donuts.

Obviously, junk food can wreak all sorts of havoc on our butt and bellies, but, surprisingly, your breasts can suffer from that bag of chips or morning scone, too. As we get into our 30s and 40s, Grotting says our breasts slowly become more fat-based. To put it another way, when you eat that donut, it's not going to go straight to your waistline.

You are hitting your weight-loss goals.

There's always a reason to celebrate when you lose those extra ten pounds after working your butt off, but Grotting says shedding a bunch of weight in a short amount of time might cause your breasts to droop. Of course, if you want to get to a healthier weight, you shouldn't stop your plan altogether just because of your boobs. Instead, Grotting says wearing a fitted bra every day should do the trick.

You smoke a lot.

In case you need yet another reason to ditch the awful habit, here's number 1293752: Smoking can ruin the skin around your breasts, causing it to become damaged and appear stretched and saggy. In short, it's just not worth it.

You forget to rub down the twins.

It may seem a bit weird to massage your ladies with moisturizer before turning in. Still, Grotting insists that the payoff is well worth the lotion marks you might get on your pajamas. More so than anything else, keeping your breast skin hydrated with a shea butter or a good moisturizing lotion is super important if you want to slow down the sag. Plus, we're sure your hubby will have no problem lending a helping hand with this one...

You go for long runs every day.

Marathoners aren't going to like this news. Grotting says the bouncing momentum from running can actually bog your breasts down and lead to excessive sagging. But no need to worry, though—a well-fitted sports bra will definitely help counteract the problem. Also, Grotting recommends trying to switch off between running and/or swimming and using the elliptical during the week, so that you can give your boobs a bit of rest.

You only wear a tee to bed.

We know it sounds annoying, yes, but if you tend to be full-chested, you might want to consider wearing a comfortable t-shirt bra as you catch some zzz's to maintain your desired boob shape, says Grotting. Just make sure the bra you choose is comfortable (and breathable).

You don't protect them from the sun.

Sunblock is always important when spending a good amount of time outdoors, so the same definitely goes for your breasts. Lathering the boobs up with sunscreen can prevent your breast skin from becoming dehydrated, damaged and, eventually, saggy, says Grotting.

You're wearing the wrong bra.

We've said it before, and now we're saying it again: never underestimate the power of a good bra. Grotting believes most of our boob problems can be fixed by simply wearing the right size bra that works for you.
