Food to increase breast size

Updated November 21, 2016

While an individual's breast size is usually determined by genetics and hormones, certain foods and herbal supplements can help increase breast size. Increasing bust size through diet is also a natural and safe alternative to breast augmentation surgery.


Fennel, an oestrogenic herb commonly found in Mediterranean cooking is rich in phyto-nutrients, a nutritional substance found in plants that can help increase breast size. Fennel also has been widely used for centuries as a natural way to increase milk production in the breast. Likewise, fennel seeds are rich in flavonoids, which cause cell tissues in the breast to grow. Incorporate Mediterranean recipes that use fennel or fennel seeds into your daily diet, or rub lotions containing fennel on your chest.

Sesame Seeds

Sesame seeds, which are commonly found on bagels and buns, are rich in calcium, phosphorus, iron and protein. This unique combination helps firm and enlarge the breasts. Sprinkle sesame seeds over your salad, choose breads with sesame seeds and eat hummus regularly, which contains tahini, a paste made from sesame seeds. You also can apply sesame oil directly on the breasts.


Fenugreek, which has a long history in herbal medicine, contains high amounts of diosgenin, a chemical compound that promotes breast cell growth. Fenugreek also helps regulate hormones in the body which may also contribute to breast enlargement since hormones also effect breast size. Take daily fenugreek supplements to increase breast size.

Wild Yam

Wild yam, a natural sexual stimulant, also can help increase breast size. Like fennel, wild yam is rich in phyto-nutrients that promote healthy breast cell growth. Wild yam can be taken in supplement form, infused into a tea or added to a lotion that is directly applied to the cheat.

Saw Palmetto

Saw palmetto has earned its place in both ancient medicine and folklore for being a natural breast enlargement remedy. Used for centuries, saw palmetto contains phyto-nutrients like wild yam and fennel, which helps promote breast growth. You can take daily saw palmetto supplements for breast enlargement.

Other Recommendations

Vitamin E, Dong Quai, Blessed Thistle, Dandelion, Kelp, Watercress, L-Tyrosine, Soy Isoflavones, Red Clover and Black Cohosh are also popular herbs used for breast enlargement, and they help reduce the risk of breast cancer. Whole grains, vegetables and chocolate also can help stimulate the breast enhancing process.
