Breast Lifting Exercise

The breast is not just a part of a woman’s physical feature; its importance has a far deeper meaning. The breast is the fountain of life and the cradle that nourishes life. After the womb, the breast is perhaps the purest aspect of a woman. Through ancient times, a fulsome breast was considered to be the sign of health, which can partly explain the male infatuation towards ‘full’ breasts. As can be seen in the depiction of mother in early paintings and sculptures, they all come with heavy breasts. However, due to the sexual imagery, the aesthetic significance of breasts is lost in the background. While many women are not shy to admit that a firm breast is a lure for men, men are also quite brazen about pinpointing their disdain for women with sagging breasts.

That is why women attach considerable importance to their breasts. Perfect well-shaped breast is a confidence booster and no women would like to see their breasts sagging due to age or disease. Thousands of women spend considerable amount of money just to make their breast firm. All these can be prevented if you do exercises that focus on toning the breasts. These exercises will not only keep your breasts in top shape but you can also be justifiably proud of making your bosom look perfect. To know more on these exercises read the article given below.
Exercises For Lifting The Breast

  • Stand at least 2 feet away from a wall. Join the hands to form a triangle by joining the thumbs and pointer fingers. Lower the hands slowly so that they are directly in front of your breasts. Now, extend the hands so that they touch the wall. Lean forward on your toes so that your forehead touches the wall and then push yourself using the arms and upper chest so that you are upright again. During this exercise, keep the entire body firm.
