What Men Really Think About Saggy Boobs

For as long as I've had boobs, those boobs have been big boobs

I swear to you, I went to bed one night around age 9 flat as a board and woke up the next morning looking like Dolly Parton's little sister. 

As a girl with big boobs, I learned early on the sag is the foe that must be fought at every turn.  

It seemed like everything fun, relaxing or meaningful involving my big boobs meant cursing myself to a lifetime of boobs that looked like tennis balls straight chilling at the bottom of knee socks. 

Common causes of saggy boobs include aging, collagen deficiency, estrogen deficiency, gravity, high body mass index, larger breast size, menopause, multiple pregnancies, rapid weight gain followed by weight loss (or vice versa), and smoking.

There's no set age when a women's breasts start to sag, as everyone's genetics are different and it also depends on lifestyle choices and overall health as well as how firm your breast ligaments are. According to a UCLA study, your breast tissue also ages two to three years faster than the rest of your body so that could also cause sagging to happen as well. 

Saggy boobs cause anxiety in women because society has made women have self-doubt from breast sagging and that's why some women get plastic surgery as well to make their breasts perkier. Therefore, saggy boobs can be one of the many insecurities for some women which leads to them having low confidence and therefore worried about how men feel about them. 

In order to keep them perky, according to medical advice, all you need to do is maintain a healthy diet — but sometimes it's just unavoidable. And if your boobs still end up being a bit saggy... who cares?

I think we as women with big breasts our only care is because we've had this idea that saggy boobs are a turn-off to all men. (Wonder where that idea came from.)

I decided to put this sad little theory to the test, and I asked a group of anonymous men what they really think about saggy boobs.

Do men like saggy boobs?

There were some unfortunate responses, of course. But, by and large, what men had to say about saggy boobs left my heart (and breasts) feeling warm and happy.
