Muscle development: Certain muscles hold shoulders up & back, i.e., the favored military posture. These muscles stressed by your breasts (5-6 pounds each). See physical therapist who can show how to strengthen rhomboid & superior trapezius muscles. Beefy muscles less subjected to mechanical stress & development of painful chronic spasms. You will also have to put aside shyness about holding breasts up & out.
