As a woman ages or has children, her breasts can start to sag and not look as perky as they once did. Breasts come in all shapes and sizes, so there’s no single perfect look. Nevertheless, it can be hard to watch as they begin to change the way they used to be. There are some simple measures you can start to do at home to try and help your breast tissue stay healthy. Your body needs vitamin C and B to build good and supportive elastic tissue and collagen, so try adding a glass of OJ to your morning routine. Also, try cutting back on junk food, since over time your breasts will start to turn fatty. You should also make sure to rub yourself with some lotion before bedtime to keep them hydrated.

But what should a woman look for in a bra if she wants to minimize sagging? As most women know, the wrong size bra can lead to an array of issues. But sporting the wrong size brassiere can also result in saggy boobs. All of a bra’s support usually should come from the band—if it’s too loose your boobs will drag down because of the weight. It’s easy to check if your bra is the correct size. Just place two fingers under the bra band and see if there’s a lot of space. If so, then the bra is too big for you. Make sure to look for a bra with at least three fastener hooks. Also, it’s important to look for a bra with really great side support to keep you comfortable. Here are some types of bras you should look for to keep your breasts well supported.

The Minimizer

Minimizer bras are great at keeping control of your chest. Much like a traditional sports bra, they’ll flatten your chest a bit. Even though you may want to hide your cleavage, there are still some really sexy minimizer choices out there. Many are made of soft material but still have a full-coverage design. The goal of the minimizer is to offer enough compression for a woman to participate in sports, fit into clothing, and not have her breasts sag.

The T-shirt Bra

If you are dealing with the issues of your breast sagging, there are a couple of options out there in regard to bra support that can make them look lifted. A T-shirt bra is a great option since they are designed to look seamless and sleek but still offer a good amount of coverage. Most have molded cups which also give good support. This bra is good at lifting as well and can be worn in a casual, everyday way.

The Full Cup

Many would argue that a full cup is the best option for most women. It’s certainly helpful for women who are big-chested. This bra offers full coverage and also a sturdy support system for your chest. This garment will still give you a nice feminine shape even if you do not have the perkiest of boobs, and it’s full cup design means that your breasts will be fully covered.

The Underwire

Most bras come with wire already in them. There are some women that do not like wire because at times it can poke through and harm your skin. But, that being said, an underwire bra is the top of the line when it comes to all-around support. You do have some choices when it comes to underwire bras—for example, you can go without extra padding if you want to minimize the size. An underwire bra will give you a nice, natural look. Searching for a soft cup is a good idea too, especially for those extra-long days.
