There is no ideal type of breast. Big, small or medium, all breasts are perfect.
It is difficult to change their shape, but there is always scope for improvement. You can enhance the appearance of your breasts by making them look firmer and perkier.
There are plenty of painful and expensive ways to improve the shape and size of the breast like going under the knife or investing in good push-up bras. But if you are looking for some inexpensive and long term ways then try strength training.
How does strength training help?
Weight training helps to strengthen your chest muscles to increase their mass. More muscle mass in breasts may make them look fuller and toned. It can change the appearance and the overall size of the breast. Yoga can also be an excellent way to tone and target your breast muscles. The upward movement can tone the muscles and make your breast look firmer. Here are some exercises to tone and target your muscles.
