As we age, the skin loses its elasticity. In women, this means the breasts become saggy. It also loses fullness. By developing the muscles underneath the breast tissues, you can restore or enhance the look of your breasts. They could become firmer, perkier and fuller. So forget about plastic surgery or creams. You can achieve fuller, perkier breasts through these exercises:

The dumbbell bench press engages the muscles under the breast and tones up the arms. To do the bench press, lie face up on the bench. Hold dumbbells in each hand. Keep the arms straight. Now, lower the dumbbells until they are close to the sides of the chest. Press them slowly back to the starting position. Do ten reps.
Push-up is an excellent exercise that tones both upper and lower body. It also effective in keeping the breasts perky! While on all fours, keep your palms slightly wider than the shoulders. Keep the feet close together. You want the body to form a straight line from head to toe. Now, lower yourself down using your upper body strength. Your chest should be a few millimeters from the floor. The arms should maintain a 45-degree angle to your torso. Do not arch your back; it will strain your back muscles. Hold the position for as long as you can. Then, push yourself back to the starting position. That’s one pushup. Now do ten and give yourself 90 seconds to rest.
This uses a weighted fitness ball called a medicine ball. The chest pass tones the upper body, including the breasts.

If you can’t do traditional pushup, you can always do press ups. It’s easier to perform than regular pushups. Press up engages the upper body muscles.
Stand one or two feet away from a wall. Now, place your hands on the wall and rest your palms flat on the surface. The distance should be at arm’s length on shoulder level. Push yourself down by curving your elbows slowly. Once your arms are perpendicular to the wall, stop pushing. Hold this position for several seconds.
