Women in Lubbock see the world through individual preferences and tastes. What one person thinks is perfect doesn’t accurately reflect the likes and dislikes of the next person. When you are discussing the ideal breast size, even though people have their opinions, consider a study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery® that found most people prefer breasts with 45% of their fullness above the nipple line and 55% below the line. Participants also said they like a more natural, teardrop shape.
What Affects Your Breast Size and Shape?
- Genetics is the biggest factor in determining your breast size and shape. Genes from both your parents influence your breasts’ hormone levels, tissue density, shape, and skin tone.
- The aging process happens whether we like it or not. You can’t fight the ticking of the clock or the effect of gravity over time. The Cooper ligaments in your breasts are bands of tissue that hold your breast structure and tissue in place. These aren’t true ligaments that are connected to bone so over time they can become stretched like overworked rubber bands. This stretching will eventually cause breasts to have a saggy or droopy appearance.
- Weight can affect your breasts. A portion of your breast tissue is fat. You can understand why your breasts will expand when your waistline does. If your breast composition has large amounts of fat, your breasts sag when you lose significant amounts of weight.
Some life choices have a greater influence on our breasts’ appearance than others. Pregnancy and breastfeeding have a much more significant effect on our bust than exercise does. And a healthier lifestyle supports your skin elasticity, muscle tone, and weight consistency.
