Breastfeeding causes breasts to sag is a myth
As women age, their bodies go through a whole of changes —from those that are hormonal to the more visible ones such as transformation of the breast and its shape. But most of the time, one can be at a loss to understand these bodily changes. And that’s because of a lack of proper knowledge about these physiological processes. Breast sagging is a topic that nags every other woman. But without proper information about it, women are at a loss. When discussing breast sagging, people usually talk about various baseless myths.
If you are confused between conflicting myths that you’ve heard from various sources, worry not. You aren’t the only one who’s facing it.
In order to bust some myths about breast sagging, here is a list of facts. In an Instagram post shared by House of Beauty (India), these facts are placed against their respective myths. The caption read, “Breast Sagging is of the many natural body changes that women experience when they age.”
Here is the list of myths put against facts:
Myth 1: Exercises keep your breasts from drooping.
Fact: You can never fully restore the original size and shape of breasts once you begin to age. But you can take certain measures to improve the lift and strength of the breasts. This can be achieved through exercise and body cups.
Myth 2: Breastfeeding causes breasts to sag.
Fact: Nothing can be farther from the truth than saying that breastfeeding causes breast sagging. Breastfeeding does not cause the breasts to sag.
Myth 3: Wearing a bra prevents sagging breasts.
Fact: A bra is definitely helpful when it comes to holding up the breasts. It also gives you the shape and looks that you desire. But wearing a bra cannot ensure that your breasts won’t sag during ageing. That’s because breast sagging occurs naturally during the ageing process.
