It is natural for every person to be conscious of some part of their body. That isn't to say that you shouldn't love yourself for what you've been blessed with but that it's okay to know that your imperfect and still love yourself. Some women wish they had a bigger butt, some want more toned arms and a few wish they were blessed in the bosom department. Conventionally, big breasts are considered more attractive and womanly and if you aspire to have bigger boobs and show off that sexy cleavage (not that you can't do it now), we're here to help! So read on to find out all you need to know how to increase breast size.
Everything in your body is determined by the genes that you've inherited from your parents. Your genes dictate everything - from your height to your hair colour to your breast size. Along with the size, your DNA also determines the skin quality, strength of structural components of the breasts as well as the shape. But you need to remember that only the base breast size is determined by your genetics but over time the environment your body is exposed to may alter your inheritance. For example smoking, alcohol and exposure of the breast skin to UV radiation can have a negative effect on your boob health.
Breasts are made primarily of fatty connective tissue. Which means that as you lose or gain weight, your breast size is bound to change because you'll be getting rid of/ piling on fat depending on what your goal is. However, if you're planning on gaining weight to increase the size of your breasts, it'll be best to do it in a healthy way by adding more proteins to your diet instead of blindly piling on pounds.
As you hit puberty, your body starts undergoing changes. These changes are due to the production of a hormone called estrogen which is responsible for the development of your breasts. Any imbalance of this growth hormone may result in smaller boob size.
Birth control pills may benefit you in more ways than one. While they prevent any unwanted pregnancies, they are also known to increase breast size. These contraceptive pills contain estrogen and as a (desirable in some cases) side effect, they also help you go up a breast size. But, birth control pills are really powerful medicines that contain a high dosage of hormones which may have other side effects so you should never self-medicate with them.
What you put in your body is what shows on the outside. So if you're looking to increase your breast size, here are some foods you should add to your daily diet.
Milk is one of the best foods to consume if you wish to increase your breast size. In fact, all dairy products work well to give you an ample bosom. The reproductive hormones found in them are similar to those found in the human body like estrogen, progesterone, and prolactin which are important for milk production. Ideally, one glass in the morning and one at night is the best way to consume.
Soy is almost magical when it comes to increasing breast size. The beans are rich in phytoestrogens, a hormone that is accountable for breast growth. With high levels of isoflavones, the soy milk imitates estrogen which assists in boosting the breast size. However, it is important to check the amount of soy milk that is consumed since high levels of soy milk can affect your menstrual cycle.
You may be surprised to see this one on the list and so were we. Papaya milk is said to be highly effective in successfully increasing your breast size. With the nutrients present in the fruit, especially ones that promote estrogen production, papaya is a natural boob size booster. No fuss, no mess, easy access!
Fenugreek seeds are useful in more ways than you thought - not only do they promote weight loss and hair growth, they also help you to make them breasts bigger. Like all other foods on the list, fenugreek seeds also contain phytoestrogens that encourage the production of prolactin. The easiest way to consume fenugreek is to buy fenugreek capsules and consume one per day. Using fenugreek oil to massage them will also aid in your quest for bigger boobs and they will also help you get a better bust shape.
Fennel, a well-known herb, is also a natural breast enhancement food. The seeds are quite yummy so you can eat them raw or make powder by grinding them and adding them to your food. With flavanoids, omega 3 and fatty acids, these seeds produce lignans which act like estrogen and help with breast development. Since it is an easily available herb, it has minimal side effects. Also, similar to fenugreek oil, fennel seed oil can be used for massaging your breasts to go up a few cup sizes.
Saw palmetto, or karkach tal as it is called in Hindi, is a small tree that grows only to about three or four feet. For the longest time, it has been used as a hormone regulating herb for both women and men. This is because it contains phytonutrients that can help increase the size of your breasts. Available as supplements, you should check the dosage to be consumed with a doctor.
These seeds, like fenugreek and fennel, are rich in phytoestrogens. As mentioned before, phytoestrogens are highly effective in increasing breast size. Since they have a nutty flavour, flax seeds can be consumed raw, sprinkled on top of foods like salads or sandwiches or ground into a powder and added to the dishes.
Wild yams are suggested often when it comes to maintaining the health of your breast tissues. With a phytoestrogen called diosgenin present in them, these yams help in increasing your breast size. Not only that, it is highly recommended that you eat them since they are beneficial to a woman's reproductive health as well.
What if we tell you that seafood like prawns, oysters, shellfish or seaweed could actually help increase your breast size? Well, you'd be surprised but it's true. With high levels of manganese, seafood boosts sex hormones that, in turn, will help you achieve the bra size you've been dreaming about.
The benefits of exercising are innumerable and it's a wonderful thing. But who knew exercising could actually help you increase your breast size? Well, here are some exercises you can do to increase your boob size.
Weight training has amazing benefits - it's a great way to improve your strength, mood, overall health and a lesser known way to improve your breasts. Pectoral muscles are your chest muscles under the breasts and strength training exercises of these muscles can improve the size, firmness, and perkiness of the chest area. Chest presses and push-ups are two examples of pectoral muscles exercises that can improve breast quality.
Apart from your chest muscles, you must also work on your shoulders and back to improve the overall look and appearance of your breasts. These muscles lie behind your chest and toning them can help you achieve the desired result as well as improve your total body strength and prevent injuries by removing the focus from only one muscle group.
We got 99 problems and Yoga probably has solutions to all of them. Practicing yoga, apart from putting you in a better place, physically and mentally, also helps make your breasts firmer, stronger and more shapely, creating an illusion of bigger breasts. Also, there are certain yoga positions that increase the size by increasing the fat and glandular tissue in the chest area while there are some that tone the muscles that support your boobs to make them stronger.
Apart from eating well and exercising, here are some other tips to increase breast size.
If you massage your breasts in the correct way, you might actually be able to increase their size. However, for these massages, you should use special oils like fennel seed oil or fenugreek oil since they are found to be highly effective. These massages also help you relax and may improve your mood or posture, making you seem taller and your breasts look bigger.
Estrogen can be prescribed to women for various reasons. For instance, women going through menopause are given estrogen to relieve the more troublesome symptoms of it. As mentioned above, estrogen can cause breast enlargement. However, undergoing this without consulting a doctor may have serious repercussions in the longer term so you need to be extremely careful.
Just like estrogen, progesterone is also a naturally-occurring female sex hormone which can lead to mild breast enlargement. However, just like estrogen, it is important to remember that progesterone is a hormone and it must be consumed very carefully and not just for the purpose of breast enlargement. Please consult your doctor first.
As mentioned above, you can consider making birth control pills a part of your routine to increase your breast size. However, it is important to remember that a doctor must prescribe this and that the boob size may go down again once you stop taking the pills.
First of all, let's get this truth out there - no body and nobody is perfect. We all have things that we view as flaws but they may not necessarily be so. Having a breast size that you aren't happy with is not the end of the world. It is only a small thing in the larger scheme of things. While it may seem like the biggest issue in your life right now, you'll know that all that worry was for nothing in the end.
Having a bigger breast size, like most things, is an unrealistic beauty standard thrust upon us by society. With genetics in play, you really can't help what cup size you are, but you can enjoy it. Believe it or not, having small breasts has its perks too, one of them being the ability to roam braless. So celebrate your body for what it is and love yourself for who you are. There isn't another you in this world.
