The woman who wants larger breasts but does not want to go under the knife may be at a disadvantage if she is looking to enlarge her breasts by two cup sizes. But exercises can enhance the breast and give it a fuller, firmer and perkier look. Certain herbs also contain phytoestrogens, or plant substances similar to female estrogen. Changing the way you wear your bra also can give your breasts a firmer and healthier look.


Herbal Supplements

As breast enlargement surgeries can be expensive, ineffective or botched, women turn to herbal supplements to increase their bust size naturally. However, there are certain herbal supplements on the market that may not be herbal at all and should be avoided, not only because they are ineffective but because they could be dangerous. Always talk to your doctor first when starting an herbal regimen. She will be able to tell you if the herbs have side effects. Find herbal supplements derived from fenugreek, fennel, saw palmetto, wild yam and cumin. These plants and herbs have an estrogenic effect, which means they contain substances that act as synthetic estrogen. The synthetic estrogen promotes growth and fullness in the breast tissue. Fenugreek seeds are especially useful. According to Mother Nature, the seeds contain a large amount of diosgenin, another semi-synthetic form of female estrogen that promotes growth of breast tissue.


Exercises

Exercise will not enlarge your breasts, but it will give them a firmer appearance. Exercise will also improve your posture, which improves the look of your breasts. Press your palms together as hard as possible in front of your chest for five seconds and release. Repeat 10 times. Then curl and link your fingertips in front of your chest and pull as hard as possible without letting go for five seconds. Repeat 10 times. Lastly, grasp your forearms in front of your chest and pull outward without letting go for five seconds. Repeat 10 times. Push-ups and other arm exercises that repeatedly bring the palms together in front of the chest will give your breasts a firmer look. For the best results, use a personal trainer to help you find the right techniques.


The Right Bra

Many women are actually making their breasts look smaller due to an ill-fitting bra. Never wear a tight fit and have a bra-fitter at a department store help you find your right size. The looser the bra is, the more blood circulation will reach the breast to give it a fuller look.
