Here are six natural tips on dealing with sagging breast:
- Maintaining a Steady Weight:
When Igbo women of the past dealt with sagging breasts, one of the best things they usually did was maintaining a steady weight.

- Saying No to Tobacco Smoke:
Each time Igbo women of the past attempted dealing with saggy breasts, one principal thing they did was stopping or, never starting to smoke! Tobacco smoke causes sagging breasts just like it causes wrinkles.Tobacco smoke causes the skin around the breast to lose its elasticity and flexibility over time. So avoid it like plague.
- Supporting the Breasts:
Another way Igbo women of past generation prevented sagging was to support them with proper artistic bra when they are engaged in their daily chores.Excessive movements of the breast can cause a lot of bounce and the tearing of some supporting ligaments in the breasts. Support your breasts with an appropriate bra, when you’re working.

Having good posture not only helped Igbo women of the past look more confident and slimmer, it also helped their breasts appear perkier. A slouching posture makes the breast droopy and saggy.Sit and stand straight all the time.
- Massaging the Breasts:
In the past generations, Igbo women dealt with sagging breasts by massaging them to keep them in tip-top shape. Massaging the breasts can help release stagnant fluid, which facilitates the re-shaping of the breast to give them a lift.

Igbo women in the past generations enjoyed pounding staple foods like yam, coco-yam, and cassava, because the exercise builds their area muscles behind the breasts and makes them firmer which also boosts the appearance of the breasts.
