The breasts lose elasticity with age and they become saggy.

Causes of sagging breasts
You must keep your breasts in perfect shape since they are not made of muscle. They have fat, milk-producing glands and connective tissues. Although saggy breasts usually appear after the age of 40, they can appear earlier if the skin looses elasticity, becomes old and loose. Sagging breasts are especially common after pregnancy.
Other causes of saggy breasts are: menopause, improper nutrition, rapid weight gain or loss, over-tanning, improper bras and smoking.
It is a myth that breastfeeding causes saggy breasts. Weight gain during pregnancy is the true culprit since the ligaments get stretched due to the weight gain. Pay attention to your weight gaining during pregnancy to avoid sagging breasts.
Alcohol, carbonated beverages and diseases such as tuberculosis and breast cancer can also be the reasons why your breasts are saggy.

Triggers of saggy breasts
Avoid the following triggers of sagging breasts:
Over-tanning and cigarettes
Long exposure to UV rays destroys collagen. Foods high in fats and low in nutrients, as well as smoking increases the risks of having saggy breasts.
Wrong sized bras
Not wearing a bra or wearing a bra that is the wrong size increases the chances of sagging breasts. Bras with holders or pads are an excellent choice to prevent saggy breasts.
Bras are harmful over time
According to a French research breasts needs to be exposed to gravity. Wearing a bra for a long period of time can be harmful and cannot bring any benefits for the appearance of the breasts.
In fact, women who don’t wear bras have a natural support. Their muscle tissues are more developed after a long period than the muscle tissues of women who wear bras regularly. The nipples also get a natural lift among women who did not wear bras. To conclude, according to this study bras prevent the development and growth of the muscle tissues and this may be the main reason for sagging breasts.
However, this study applies only on the women who participated in the research. The same effect may not be seen in other women, especially those who have worn bras their entire lives.
