Nowadays, many women are opting for various methods - natural, cosmetic, or surgical - for the enlargement of their breasts.
The onus could lie on the young female celebrities from the world of fashion, Bollywood or Hollywood, who are vivacious and ooze oomph due to their appearances. They inspire a lot of women to work on their overall looks and grooming by devoting extra care for beautiful hair, smooth and vibrant skin, pearly teeth, good figure, and superb dressing sense.
Large breasts, especially for the women with smaller breasts, may be one of their most popular desires. Do you know yoga can benefit such women by making their wish come true? Before we find out how, let us explore more about breast enlargement in general.
Reasons For Smaller Breasts In Women
• Genetics or heredity: Genetics could be a major reason for a woman to have small-sized breasts. It could be due to the mammary hypoplasia, the lack of sufficient IGT or grandular mammary tissue that failed to develop when the woman was an adolescent, leading to smaller breasts.
Apart from this, some women may suffer from the Turner syndrome, which is a chromosome-specific anomaly that makes one of the X chromosomes missing or altered. The direct consequence is lack of overall development of the female, and underdevelopment of breasts is one of the effects.
Also, any sort of abnormality in the distribution of fat in the body could be a genetic reason for the breasts not getting developed fully.
• Hormonal imbalance: The lack or excess of two sex hormones in a woman's body - estrogen and progesterone - could lead to various side effects, including smaller breasts.
Some of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance in a woman could include the appearance of acne, unexpected and excess hair growth on the face or body, hair loss, fatigue, lack of focus, gas, bloating, etc.
• Deficiency of vital nutrients: Deficiency of nutrients such as vitamins and minerals may be the potential cause of underdeveloped breasts in a woman. Poor eating habits could lead to the insufficiency of required nutrients in the body.
• Depression or emotional problems: For a few women, emotional stress or a distressing experience during their teenage years could have stunted the growth of breasts for them.
Various Ways To Enhance Breast Size:
2. Breast Massaging
3. Making Changes In Diet
1. Exercise: It can be really helpful in increasing size of the breasts. Few exercises that may put the chest to use are wall press, chest press, crunches, pushups, lifting dumbbells, and so on.
2. Breast Massaging: One of the most effective ways to enlarge breasts is by massaging them on a regular basis. If practiced at least twice a day (morning and night) for a total duration of 25-30 minutes, the desired result could be achieved within 2 or 3 months. The trick is to stick to the same direction (preferably inwards) while massaging the breasts, to enhance the blood circulation and strengthen as well as stretch the breast-muscles.
3. Making Changes In Diet: Incorporating various foods, fruits, seeds, etc. in the regular diet, that help balance hormones or improve the overall health, can also help make the breasts bigger. Few examples are flaxseeds, fenugreek seeds, fennel seeds, banana, radish, apple, spinach, carrot, cucumber, ginger, beans, chickpeas, olive oil, sunflower oil, sesasme oil, etc.
4. Supplements: Certain herbal pills or supplements can help enhance the breast size too.
5. Surgery: This is for women who are looking for quicker results, and don't mind going under the knife! There are two ways of increasing the bust size by surgery:
i) Fat drafting - Through this procedure, the extra fat from the saggy areas of the patient (e.g., thighs, stomach, etc.) is removed, only to be injected into her breasts which would be lacking in fat.
ii) Silicon implant - It refers to the surgical method of enlargement of breasts by implanting breast-shaped silicone cups filled with saline or silicone gel.

• Dwikonasana Or Double Angle Pose: Practice every morning and evening, and hold the pose for 10 seconds and repeat at least 10 times.This pose leads to the breast-tissues becoming longer and thicker and therefore results in firmer breasts.
