Boost your bust, part 2: The natural way
If you can't face the thought of going under the knife to improve your bust size, why not try other, non-surgical options to get the boobs you want?
Get your bra fitted by a professional
It's amazing what a well-fitted bra can do for your bust shape and size. With up to 70 per cent of women in the UK wearing the incorrect bra size for their shape, that's a lot of boobs out there that could be improved - and even boosted - simply by wearing the right bra.
Most large department stores offer a free professional bra fitting service.
Think your boobs bigger
'I didn't want surgery but watched an amazing programme on TV about a therapist and her group who all wanted to increase their breast sizes. The women were taught to relax and centre themselves and gently massage their breasts and psychologically believe their breasts were bigger than they actually were. They were then instructed to do this as often as felt comfortable. It sounds bizarre I know, but I tried it and it really does work. I went from a 34B to a 36C in just under a year with no change to my diet or fitness.'
The Brava bra method
'If you want to boost your breasts, a good way is the Brava bra. It puts a strained tension on your breasts for 12 to 15 weeks, when worn for a minimum of 11 hours a day. After that time your breasts should have grown a cup size. You can see progress early on, but it's just swelling. After a while, the swelling becomes permanent enlargement.

Herbal remedies - real deal or fake?
Any search of the internet will lead you to numerous pills and potions claiming to be able to enlarge your bust size. Often these methods are expensive, offer little visible results and, unless you know exactly what ingredients they contain, may even be harmful to you.
Natural, herbal remedies may be worth a try. However, no pill or potion will be able to boost your bust to a 34DD overnight, so think carefully before you spend large sums of cash. A cheaper, more reliable option is to invest in a good push-up bra or a pair of silicone bust enhancers (aka chicken fillets!).
