How to tone your breasts

Updated April 17, 2017

Sagging breasts or breasts that lose their perk and elasticity can be hereditary or caused by ageing, hormonal changes, pregnancy and changes in your diet. Learning how to tone your breasts eliminates the need to spend money and time on surgery.

Press the palms of your hands together in front of your chest. Apply pressure by pushing the palms against each other for up to five seconds. Do eight to 10 repetitions of this exercise. This exercise can be done both standing up or sitting down.

Do modified push-ups, also known as girl push-ups. Push-ups tone and firm the entire chest area and additionally give your abdominals, shoulder and arms a workout. Come down on all fours and lower your buttocks so your body forms a straight line. Keep the abdominals tight and your hands a little more than shoulder-width apart. Bend at the elbows and lower your body towards the floor. Push back up to your starting position. During each push-up you will feel the pectoral muscles contracting. Never lock out the elbows. Do as many repetitions as your fitness level allows.

Do butterfly exercises. Lie on the floor with your knees bend. Hold two to three pound dumbbells in each hand. Dumbbell substitutes can be water bottles and food cans. Extend the arms sideways to form a "T" with your body. Lift the arms up while holding the weights. Form a "V" with your arms before bringing them back down to the side of your body. Work your way up to 15 repetitions.

Massage the breasts three to four minutes per day with a breast toning and firming lotion. Cup the breasts with your hands and use the palms and fingertips to massage them in a circular motion using light pressure. Combine this with gentle kneading motions.

Shower the breasts with cold water to promote blood flow and to perk them up. You can also use ice cubes on the breasts for a similar effect.
