36-24-36. These numbers have become a universal measure of the perfect female body. While these numbers are just statistics, and it is a well-known fact that statistics lie, many women tend to wrongly rate themselves based upon these numbers. The reality is that a very small percentage of women have the perfect breasts.
However, this does not stop the rest of the sisterhood from striving towards being better endowed, thereby falling prey to the countless hawks that frequent the cosmetic industry.
These women are offered anything between breast implants, breast enlargement pills and breast creams, which are said to increase breast size, but which, in reality, can have harmful side effects.
It needs to be borne in mind that the size of your breasts depends upon your hormones. In many cases, actual breast enlargement may not be possible. However, there are some natural ways that could be used to make your breast seem larger, firmer and more attractive.
Exercise your bust area. Push-ups are extremely beneficial in this regard, and so is the bench-press. Your breasts are mounted on muscles. Therefore, as your chest muscles are built up, your breasts get firmer and tend to look larger. Tone down your stomach and improve your posture so that your breasts are given prominence when you walk.
Massage your breasts twice a day, for ten minutes, with olive oil. While the oil, in itself, does not have breast enlargement properties, massaging tends to stimulate the mammary glands. Stimulation, over time, will cause breast growth.
Get enough sleep. Sleep tends to boost your metabolism, which, in turn, helps your body function as it ought to. Your hormones have a higher chance of working as they should. Lack of sleep will cause your entire bodily functions to go awry.
Eat smart. If you are not very well endowed, you can make up for the lack of hormones by choosing foods that contain natural hormones known as phytoestrogens. Some foods that help increase breast size are fenugreek, fennel and wild yam. Taken regularly, results can be seen within a few weeks. These foods are also quite safe and do not come packaged with the risks of breast cancer and endometrial cancer.
Wear a well-supportive bra. The right bra size will help enhance the beauty of your breasts, irrespective of their size. If you would like to try out the different bra options that are there in the market, you could go in for padded bras, push-up bras, wired bras or water bras.
If you would just like to add a little extra dimension to your torso, padded bras or water bras would be ideal. However, if you would like to make the best of what you have, push-up bras and wired bras will create the illusion of voluptuousness.
