Let’s start by saying there is no need for you to learn how to make your boobs bigger. You’re perfect the way you are, and your body was made uniquely for you. That being said, there are still some ladies out there who would prefer something a little more prominent in their chest region.

Can you increase your breast size naturally?

There are so many reasons why you would want to know how to make your boobs bigger. Maybe it’s to deal with insecurities, feel more confident, feel more empowered, or just because you want to.

The assumption is that surgery and other procedures are the only ways to increase your breast size, but that isn’t the case.

While surgery is definitely up there with the easiest ways to make your boobs bigger and perkier, that’s not the only way *especially if you’re petrified by the idea of going under the knife for a bigger boob*.

You can increase the size of your boobs naturally through lifestyle changes, diet changes, and even birth control. So, when learning how to grow your boobs, know that it doesn’t always have to mean going under the knife. [Read: Fun and fascinating facts about breasts]

When does breast development begin and end?

It’s important to remember that every girl is different, and everyone reaches puberty at slightly different ages. However, on average, breast development begins somewhere between the ages of 8 and 13 years of age.

A woman’s breasts are usually fully developed between 17-18 years of age, but some women notice growth into their 20’s. [Read: How to feel more confident in your body and fall in love with you]

Factors affecting breast size

Boobs are as unique as the person they’re on! There are many factors that can affect a woman’s breast size; some of these factors change depending on circumstances, while others are set in stone. They include:

1. Genetics

2. Body weight and body fat

3. Age

4. Pregnancy status [Read: Pregnancy experiences – The stages for mothers-to-be]

5. Where you are in your menstrual cycle

You can’t do anything about your age or genetics; these dictate your breast size to a certain degree. However, if you’re heavier, you’ll probably have larger boobs. You might find that when you lose weight, your boobs shrink a little.

Hormones also play a huge role in breast size. During pregnancy, a woman’s breasts grow considerably and then usually settle back down after the baby is born and/or throughout breastfeeding *if she chooses to*.

Also, during certain parts of your menstrual cycle, you might notice your breasts feel heavier and larger – thanks to hormones. [Read: A girl’s ultimate survival guide to period woes]

Myths about how to grow your boobs

There’s a lot of B.S. on the internet about ridiculous ways to make your boobs grow, and we need to put a stop to them ASAP.

So before we get into how to make your boobs grow, let’s first discuss crazy myths about breast growth that won’t do squat for your rack!

1. The foods you eat affect your boobs

There are plenty of myths about eating certain foods to make your chest larger, perkier, and firmer. Some of these foods include sunflower seeds, tofu, flax seeds, and other foods rich in estrogen and protein.

While these foods may be good for you, they aren’t exactly going to be an alternative for breast augmentation. [Read: Birth control options and what they can do for you]

2. Sleeping on your side is no good

One booby trap myth suggests that sleeping on your side will prevent breast growth. The theory goes that while sleeping on your side, you are putting negative pressure on your chest that prevents circulation, therefore stunting your breasts from attaining perfect fullness.

The reality couldn’t be farther from this ridiculous myth. Your body knows how to take care of itself, and lying on your side isn’t going to cut off circulation or flatten your ta-ta’s.

3. You can exercise to make your boobs bigger

No, no, no. While exercise has a ton of health benefits, both physically and mentally, that makes it totally worth doing, causing your breasts to grow isn’t one of them.

Certain exercises can make the muscles in your chest larger, but this does not actually affect the breast tissue or the size of your boobs. [Read: How to increase your sex appeal effortlessly]

4. Wearing a bra to bed will flatten your boobs

There are many myths about bras and boobs and what, exactly, we should be doing with them at bedtime. In this particular myth, some might have you believe that wearing a bra to bed will flatten your breasts and contribute to a flatter-looking chest.

False claim! Wearing a bra to bed won’t really do anything for your breasts, one way or the other.

5. Toothpaste can make your boobs bigger

Really? Just no, no, and no again.

Toothpaste is for your teeth, it’s not for your boobs. [Read: 20 hugely false dating myths you need to banish from your mind]

Upping your cup size!

The internet is littered with hoaxes about how you can increase your breast size. From pills to creams, they’re everywhere. But how do you know what works and what doesn’t?

Well, that’s where we come in! Instead of spending hours scouring the internet and dumping hundreds of dollars on different methods that “guarantee” you’ll go up two cup sizes in a week, how about you just give these steps below a try? These are the legitimate ways you can actually make your boobs bigger.

You can even try all of these and see which one works best for you! [Read: Boob talk: Yes, your breasts are perfectly normal!]

1. Surgery

Having surgery and getting implants is an obvious way to get bigger boobs. Many women do this, and they look natural and great.

The drawbacks of this are obviously the risks involved with going under the knife. And it’s also fairly expensive.

The upside is that it is 100% effective in making your boobs bigger. If you have the money and you’re willing to go through surgery to make your boobs bigger, why not give it a try?

This is one of the most common and effective ways to make your boobs bigger, via either a breast augmentation or breast reshaping. [Read: Body trends – Plastic surgery for your genitals?]

2. Birth control

It turns out that, for some women, the hormones in birth control actually add size to their breasts. This is all down to the hormones in certain types of birth control, such as the contraceptive pill.

Birth control is specifically known to help you gain weight, so if your weight does increase a bit, chances are, your boobs will get bigger as well! [Check out: Birth control options and what they can do for you]

3. Weight gain

The thing is, you need to be ready to gain weight if you want to make your boobs bigger. If you’re really desperate to put on some boobage, gaining a few pounds will definitely do the trick. Although this isn’t the healthiest option, it will happen naturally.

4. Boob massages

Although this is a debatable method of increasing your breast size, many think it works wonders. If you give yourself regular breast massages, it increases blood flow and circulation to your boobs, which not only makes them appear larger but promotes breast health as well.

Not to mention, it’s incredibly therapeutic and relaxing on a particularly stressful day! [Read: Massage etiquette – A newbie’s guide to the types, tips, do’s and don’ts]

5. CoolSculpting

There are a few procedures that don’t involve going under the knife, such as CoolSculpting. This procedure eliminates the fat cells around your breast area, and, as a result, it can help you make your boobs look perkier and more lifted.

It’s one of the best alternatives for surgery, though it costs just as much. Although, it does work on making your boobs perkier!

6. Pueraria Mirifica

Pueraria Mirifica is a herb that is popular in Thailand for medicinal purposes. While we all tend to raise our eyebrows at “superfood magic herbs,” many women swear by this one’s breast-enhancing side effects.

Other side effects include healthier nails and hair and an increase in estrogen. Since none of these benefits can be confirmed, it’s best to consult your doctor before adding Pueraria Mirifica supplements to your big-boob journey!

7. Pregnancy

Pregnancy is nature’s gift for your breasts! In the early weeks of pregnancy, your milk ducts will begin to grow.

Basically, your boobs are going to grow and grow, and just when you think they’ve reached their porn-star maximum, they’ll fill with milk and grow a little bit more!

Larger breasts come with the territory of baby-making. Of course, be sure you’re entirely ready to have a child before you try on this method! [Read: Ways to know if both of you are ready to have a baby]

Increasing your breast size: Appearance

Not all of us want to go under the knife to achieve larger boobs. Not all of the natural methods will work for all of us, either.

So what’s your next option? Well, you can do a number of different things to make your boobs look bigger… even if they’re still the same size.

1. Wear a push-up bra

Sure, this one is obvious, but so many women just wear normal bras and then complain that their boobs look small. Wearing a push-up bra works wonders for making your boobs look bigger.

They actually work better if you wear a size smaller than you should because it helps push them up a bit more. So go ahead; it’s time to go shopping and pick the perfect push-up bra for you! [Read: Why do guys like feeling boobs? The real reasons why men love breasts so much]

2. Wear two bras

If you really want to up your game, put on that push-up bra and add a bra underneath that. Sure, it’s a little bit of extra padding, but it pushes your boobs up even more and makes them look a whole lot bigger.

Don’t worry, it’s not going to be noticeable or very obvious when you’re wearing a top. It’ll give you your desired boob action minus the surgery!

3. Wear tighter shirts

How to grow your boobs? Look at your clothes. When you wear baggy shirts, there’s really no way to tell how far your boobs stick out from your body—which makes them look smaller.

Wear tight shirts if you want to increase their size appearance. It’ll create more of a slope from your neckline to your chest, and that’ll make them look bigger.

This is one of the best tricks to learn when you want to know how to make your boobs bigger. Every Instagram model knows this, which is why you’ll see them wearing bodycon dresses and fits all the time! [Read: How to feel sexy and desirable all the time]

4. Use makeup to outline them

You may be familiar with contouring your face, but have you ever thought of contouring your chest? Well, pick up those brushes because… BOY, does it work!

There are a number of different tutorials you can find online that show you exactly how to do this in order to make it look natural! Just make sure not to overdo it, as it can look a bit crazy if done wrong. [Try: Physical attraction tips to look way hotter]

5. Stand up straight

A bad posture rounds your back and makes your boobs look smaller by concaving in with your chest. If you stand up straight, your boobs will be forced out more, and this will obviously make them more prominent and large.

We know you feel insecure about your boobs, so you try to hide them by slumping your shoulders, but posture is everything if you want to know how to make your boobs perkier. So stand up straight, open your chest, and hold your head high!

6. Wear small necklace pendants

Drawing attention to your boobs will always make them look bigger because people will actually see them. This is especially true if you wear small pendants.

The contrast in size will make your boobs seem larger in comparison. Use jewelry to your advantage, and start wearing small necklaces. [Read: 18 secrets to feel sexy, and look and be seductive without really trying]

7. Wear tops that show off your chest

You can never show off your chest properly if you keep wearing turtle-neck tops and t-shirts. Rather, you should go for crop tops, tank tops, or even v-neck shirts if you want something with sleeves. On top of that, wear a push-up bra and that’ll work wonders for your boobs!

If you want to know how to make your boobs bigger, it’s all about choosing the right set of tops. [Next, read: The best ways to get your boobs noticed without looking trashy]
