breastfeeding does not cause saggy breasts

| | Comments (4)

contrary to popular belief, breastfeeding does not cause a woman's breasts to sag. pregnancy does. okay, i'm over-simplifying a tad because actually gravity, smoking, bmi, and aging also contribute to breast ptosis (the technical term for sagging). and here's an interesting tidbit, resesarch has shown that high-impact activities like jogging and running may actually cause more stress to the ligaments of breasts than pregnancy. and, silicone breasts, because of their weight, cause the most stress (during high-impact activity) with the result that the breasts sag in a shorter time than natural breasts of the same size. so, maybe there's something to be said for the au natural sedentary lifestyle. if so, i'm all set.

but back to the subject at hand, the fact remains that if a woman is pregnant the stretching is already done. so, hopefully she will not shy away from breastfeeding because breast truly is best for baby.

if a woman knows that she or her spouse are going to be particularly conscious about perkiness, it may be a good idea for that couple to consider adoption. because adoptive breastfeeding is possible, and it won't alter breast appearance either.

Good info Smock, although this post would've been even better with pictures. :-) (That was for Mr. Luse.)

i agree. pictures would have made the post even more top notch.

on the (frequent) days i skip working out, i'll now look at it like i'm preserving my breasts. dutifully!

Mr. Luse has been checking back every day waiting for the pictures.

What a line. Seriously though, ahem, I really hope there aren't any couples avoiding children for the sake of "perkiness".

that's the mr. luse i know and love. and, you kinbetchyer bottom dollar that there ARE women who avoid children for the sake of their figures. i've had the displeasure and misfortune of meeting several of them.

pictures. . .i'll keep that in mind for my next pro-breasting article.
