Sagging of the boobs is an inevitable in phenomenon that every woman would undergo at a particular point of their lives, as a result of advancement in age, breastfeeding and so many other factors. This happens as a result of loss in elasticity of collagen, which is the connecting tissue to the breast. Thereby, leaving the breast flat or deflated.
According to a UCLA study, it was discovered that the breast tissue ages two-three years faster than other body tissues. The major causes of boobs sagging are:

Crash Dieting
Cycling back and forth between the same five to 10 pounds probably won’t make a dent in your set. But yo-yo dieting 30 or so lbs over and over? Definitely. Each time you gain and lose weight, breast tissue becomes more slack, kind of like old tights, says Michael Edwards, M.D., a breast surgeon and president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Even your breasts can’t escape the damage cigarettes do. “Any amount of smoking weakens and ages skin by decreasing the blood supply to the skin surface,” says Edwards.

Skipping Sunscreen
Exposing your face to UV rays without a protective coating of sunscreen can lead to premature wrinkles, and it has the same effect on breast sag by stretching out collagen and damaging skin, says Edwards.

Wearing an Unsupportive Bra
Whether it’s the boulder holder you wear during the day or the sports bra you change into at the gym, not sporting proper support is a big reason for droop. “The more your boobs bounce around, the more stressed breast skin and collagen become,” says Edwards. Stop in a lingerie shop and ask for a fitting just to make sure you’re wearing the right bra for your shape.

High-Impact Workouts
The research is scant right now, but some experts say that the back-and-forth repetitive motions that happen when you run or do a similar workout can lead to a breakdown of breast collagen. But before you swear off the track or treadmill, read up on the details (and keep in mind that exercise helps you keep up a youthful appearance in other ways).
