We explore whether there are ways to increase your breast size naturally.
Can you increase your chest size without resorting to breast implants? The short answer is, no, you can’t.
Breasts do change in size in certain circumstances—but they’re largely out of your control.
You may notice, for instance, that bras feel a little tighter during certain parts of your menstrual cycle. That’s because hormones can increase water retention temporarily. Similarly, your breasts may grow a little larger if you start taking hormonal birth control, such as the pill, a shot, or a hormonal IUD.
Another thing that could make your breasts grow is pregnancy. When a woman is pregnant, her breasts could go up several cup sizes thanks to an increase in the hormone progesterone. Then, after she gives birth, her breasts may swell up as milk comes in. But breasts shrink back to normal after a baby is weaned off breast milk, usually within three to six months.
Your weight can also affect breast size, but putting on pounds isn’t a guaranteed way to make them grow. Every woman’s breasts have a unique composition of fat and supportive tissue. If your breasts have less fat and more supportive tissue, then gaining weight won’t affect their size much.
As for the adverts for things like herbal products and instruments for making breasts bigger, they don’t work, and they may not be safe, either. So stay away.
