The female breast can move and stretch up to 20 cm during exercise.
However the ligaments in the breast, known as the Coopers Ligaments, are unable to stretch to match this force, even during moderate exercise.
With continual stretching of these ligaments together with the decrease in skin elasticity, and the continuous affects of gravity, our breasts droop over time.
A well-fitting and supportive bra is therefore essential throughout life. Surgery to reposition the nipples and tighten the skin can restore a more youthful appearance.
It can also achieve a practical size and shape and provide daily comfort from neck and back aches and pains.
