Large, round and firm breasts are what many women desire to have. For many, full breasts symbolize beauty and enhance a woman’s femininity. While some women are naturally blessed with firm breasts, there are many who are extremely conscious about the small size of their breasts.
The breast is a mass of glandular, fatty and connective tissue. Breast tissue changes during puberty, during the menstrual cycle, during pregnancy and after menopause.
During puberty, the breasts respond to hormonal changes in the body and begin to develop. Estrogen and progesterone are the two hormones that play a key role in the development of breasts. Nutrition and genetics also play an important role in determining the size of a woman’s breasts.
The beauty industry is flooded with a variety of breast enlargement options ranging from creams, pills and hormonal injections to expensive surgical options. If you want to go the natural way, there are some natural remedies that can give you good results.
Natural methods can be effective but will take time, patience and consistency in your approach. However, natural remedies may not help women who have small breasts due to hereditary factors.
Here are the top 10 home remedies for breast enlargement.
Certain exercises like pushups, wall pushups, bench presses, chest presses and chest compressions can help in breast enlargement. These exercises involve the movement of the arms and shoulders, which will tone the skin and muscle tissues in and around the breast area. This in turn will make your breasts firmer and appear larger.
Do these exercises daily for at least 30 minutes. To be sure you are doing them correctly, seek professional advice from a gym instructor or trainer.

According to the Institute of Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine, massaging the breasts regularly can increase your breast size. Massage helps in two ways. First, it increases blood circulation, and secondly, it helps stretch out the tissues within the breast to make them appear bigger and firmer. Use natural oils like olive oil or almond oil to massage your breasts.
- Rub the oil between your palms for two to three minutes to generate heat.
- Place your hands on your breasts and rub inwards, continuing around your breasts in a circular direction.
- Do a minimum of 100 to 300 circular rubs in the morning and again before going to bed.
- Follow this remedy twice daily for one or two months to get positive results.
Herbalists believe that fenugreek can help increase breast dimension as well as make them firm. Being a phytoestrogenic herb, fenugreek stimulates the breast-enlarging hormones like estrogen and progesterone. Additionally, it can help increase milk production in nursing mothers.
- Mix one-fourth cup of fenugreek powder with a little water to make a paste. Apply the paste on the breasts and massage gently. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes and then rinse it off with water. Follow this remedy twice daily for best results. To make fenugreek powder, dry roast and then grind fenugreek seeds.
- Another option is to daily massage your breasts with fenugreek oil, or a mixture of one part fenugreek extract and two parts body lotion.
- You can also include fenugreek sprouts in your diet or take fenugreek in the form of pills three times a day after consulting your doctor.
4. Fennel Seeds
Fennel seeds can also stimulate breast growth in regards to dimension. These seeds contain a high level of flavonoids that increase the estrogen level in the body and promote the growth of breast tissue. Plus, nursing mothers can take fennel seeds to increase breast milk production.
- Heat one tablespoon of cod liver oil with two teaspoons of fennel seeds in a pan. Allow the seeds to turn red. Strain the oil and allow it to cool. Use this oil to massage your breasts gently for five to 10 minutes. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes and then wash it off with warm water. Follow this remedy twice daily for one or two months.
- You can also drink a cup of fennel tea daily. To make fennel tea, steep one teaspoon of fennel seeds in a cup of hot water for about 10 minutes and then strain it.
5. Red Clover
Red clover is made up of four phytoestrogens that are believed to help increase breast size naturally. This herb can also make your breasts firm.
- Add one or two teaspoons of dried red clover flowers to one cup of hot water.
- Allow it to steep for 30 minutes.
- Strain and drink this tea two or three times a day.
- Follow this remedy for a few months to get the desired result.
6. Pueraria Mirifica
A study done at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand found that pueraria mirifica can increase breast size by up to 80 percent. It contains phytoestrogens like deoxymiroestrol, miroestrol and genistein. These phytoestrogens are known to contribute to balancing hormone levels in a woman’s body, which ultimately leads to healthy development of the body as well as the breasts.
You can find pueraria mirifica in the market in topical creams, gels, soaps or in oral capsule and tablet forms. The recommended oral dosage is 250 mg twice daily. For topical products, apply it to the breast area twice daily for three to five minutes until fully absorbed. These treatments should be followed for about three months to achieve the desired result.
