As women age, neglect to wear good support garments or lose a significant amount of weight, they may experience sagging of the breast. This condition, breast ptosis, occurs when from a loss of supporting tissue and fat in the breasts. This common condition causes round, globular breasts to morph into flatter, thinner breasts. During this slow process, the nipples may also relocate and move downward. Breast firmness can be improved with bust-lifting exercises, a good diet and supportive garments. Over time, your breast may feel and appear firmer.
