Can you suggest foods and exercises that enhance breast growth?

Can you suggest foods and exercises that enhance breast growth?

Very few: Enlarging your pectoral muscles (see a trainer) can push your breasts out and make them APPEAR larger. But there are no exercises to increase breast tissue.

What are some ways thats you can increase breast growth for teens?

What are some ways thats you can increase breast growth for teens?

Be patient, be you: Breast development is different for everyone. Some of us are early "bloomers" and some of us are late. You can try a padded bra if you are feeling self conscious. Having big breasts is not all that it seems because many women undergo breast reduction to make them smaller. Be proud of who you are and your breast size. You want to be known for more than a cup size. ...Read more
