The four things you’re doing daily that could give you saggy boobs… and here’s how to give your bust a boost

SAGGY boobs is sadly a fear most women will have to face over the course of their lifetime.

And even though breasts are to be celebrated whatever their shape or size, there are a few things that most of us do everyday which could be causing our beloved boobs to sag prematurely.

Always wear a sports bra when exercising to prevent stretched skin

Most women's breasts start to sag as we get older. It's a fact of life that we have to accept.

Dr. Kremer of Harley Street Aesthetics told Glamour that "as we get older, our skin becomes less elastic and thins so gravity has an easier time pulling us down."

Basically, there's no way to avoid losing that youthful lift.

But with boob jobs remaining the UK's most popular cosmetic surgeries among women, here are some habits you could easily break to keep your boobs looking lifted for longer.

Sleeping on your front

Yes it may be the most comfortable sleeping position, we get it.

Yet according to plastic surgeon Dr Kremer, this actually the worst cause of prematurely saggy boobs.

It does make sense after all, sleeping with your breasts crushed against a mattress only causes the skin to stretch and loose elasticity.

But all is not lost, if you're determined not to give up of your favourite sleeping position then simply place a pillow underneath your breasts for support. You're welcome.

Crash Diets

How bad are crash diets? Let us count the ways...

Not only do faddy weight loss regimes wreak havoc on your metabolism but they also damage breasts' elasticity.

Dr Kremer said: "Each time you gain and lose weight, breast tissue becomes slacker, kind of like old tights." Sexy.

High-intensity cardio

No matter how supportive your sports bra is, Dr Kremer says that "the back-and-forth repetitive motions that happen when you run or do a similar workout can lead to a breakdown of breast collagen."

But let's be real, no doctor is going to recommend you give up your work-outs.

Instead, Dr Kremer suggests breaking up your routine with other forms of exercise and highly recommends swimming because of its low-intensity.

But keep wearing a the sports bra, of course. They're non-negotiable.

Dodging the suncream

As if we needed another reason to slather ourselves in SPF each morning.

Yes not applying suncream to your chest means that the sun's rays break down collagen and damage the skin.

Seriously, the sun is not to be messed with - even if it can be a pain to apply every single day.

Wearing a bra 24/7

Yes this common misconception could actually be doing us more harm than good. But it's still subject to medical debate.

According to French researchers, wearing a bra long-term "weakens the muscles in the chest" and causes the breasts to droop."

But let's not discard everything we've ever been told about bras.

After all, the extra support stops them from bouncing around all day and sagging prematurely.

So while the jury is still out on this one, why not treat yourself to a skimpy cami-top and go bra-free? Your wardrobe will thank you.

Your smoking habit

This one has got to be the most unsurprising saggy boobs factor of the bunch.

It will come as no shock to anyone that "any amount of smoking weakens and ages skin by decreasing the blood supply to the skin surface."

If you're thinking of ditching the expensive habit, then why not use your boobs as an excuse?

But if you're among those with these boob-sagging habits, then all is not lost.
Here is some extra support on how you can fight premature drooping. Pun totally intended.

Wearing the right bra size

Again, it may sound obvious but a recent study found that a third of women in the UK are wearing the wrong bra size.

Dr Kremer warns that a ill-fitting bra "can change the appearance of your breast and if your bra isn't supportive enough, it may cause them to sag or droop."
