In brief: Surgery or exercise

Vaginal tone or tightness depends on pelvic floor muscle tone (pfm) & connective tissue (ct) only exercise can improve the pfm & only surgery can correct ct.
To exercise: imagine you are in a crowded room & really need to pass gas. Hold it in for count of 10. Relax for 10 & repeat. Problem:1/2 women can't squeeze pfm & don't exercise effectively. Physical therapy can help.

People also report the use of kegel exercise balls, weights or exercisers. These are placed within the vagina and the women attempts to hold them in or squeeze them in an effort recognize the muscles used or to strengthen them. A variety of surgical techniques which tighten up the "floor" (posterior) or roof (anterior) repair can be used if the vagina is excessively lax. The use of mesh is complex

In brief: Surgery

If you have significant vaginal relaxation (usually as a result of childbirth) you would likely need reconstructive surgery to restore your vagina to a more normal caliber and state.
Learn to do kegels by contracting the pelvic muscles to slow or stop the flow of urine when you are emptying your bladder. Once you have learned which muscles to contract you can do them anytime and anywhere.
