For those who have been following along, I had the opportunity to be a Vanity Fair Ambassador the last few months which gave me the opportunity to learn A LOT about bras, and how they should fit. I learned the reasons why I was always tugging at my bras in certain areas (and solutions to the problem). It has nothing about your body being a “weird” fit, but has everything to do with making sure your bra has the RIGHT fit. In case you missed my previous post: 8 Rules for Finding a Properly Fitting Bra. Those tips will be super helpful for future bra shopping!
Today I wanted to give 3 tips for the post-baby chest. Mothering those little babies is a miraculous and amazing life experience, but our bodies definitely take a toll, even our breasts. Anyone who has had multiple children understands that the breasts just aren’t the same as they used to be.
Although I consider the trade-off to be worth it, there are a few things you can do to help with the “sag” of the breasts if it’s something you experience post-baby, or as you get older (and no, it doesn’t involve surgery).

Here are 3 Tips for Postpartum Breast Sag:
- Exercise your pectoral muscles. This will do a lot for giving you a natural lift because you are replacing fat with muscle which will firm things up a bit. Doing pectoral muscles is also a great way to have a little growth in that area if you are small-chested.
- Always wear a sports bra when you exercise. This is REALLY IMPORTANT will help to prevent further sag!
- Wear a bra with some lift. Vanity Fair's new Flattering Lift Bra is comfortable, gives support, and just enough “bump pads” to give you a natural “lift.” For more info, watch this short clip:
