1.  Don’t get too much sun.  Too much of it can damage the skin on your chest, cause wrinkles, and limit how elastic your skin is.  So it can’t hold everything up as well.

 

 

2.  Losing too much weight too fast.  Everything tends to get a little looser if your skin doesn’t have time to adjust.

 

 

3.  Going braless all the time.  Bras keep things from moving around too much, which can cause your skin to stretch over time.
