As women, our boobs are a marker of womanhood.For most of us, our boobs are the first sign of the transition between childhood and becoming an adult, often long before our period crashes the party and makes us question if growing up is really for us.
Of course, along with great boob comes great responsibility, and we have to learn how to make our unique boobs work for us. We study our boob-idols like Tyra Banks (how do her boobs look that good in literally anything?!) and watch with amazement as Jennifer Aniston pulls off the no-bra-tight-sweater look flawlessly. What are their secrets to firm and perky ta-tas? Well, ladies, the answer lies not in your boobs themselves, but in how you carry them.
POSTURE AND YOUR BOOBS
The best way to give the girls a wake-up call without going under the knife or strapping yourself into a complicated, triple push-up bustier, is to improve your posture. If you’re skeptical, try this:
Stand in front of a mirror bra-less or with minimal support. Slouch, letting your spine curve and shoulders cave. How are your boobs looking? Probably not so great.
Now, stand up tall. Straighten out your spine, tighten your abs, and set your shoulders back with confidence. See the difference? Now imagine what a little extra work strengthening and lengthening could do.

2. TRIANGLE POSE
Triangle pose (or Trikonasana) is all about lengthening. It will release and strengthen your thoracic spine and stretch the rest of your spine in the process. This long spine helps you stand tall and show off your boobs. Bonus: Triangle also improves blood flow if you need a mid-day pick up.
3. COBRA POSE
Cobra (or Bhujangasana) is an incredible thoracic stretch and ab-strengthener. Ab strength is key to not collapsing inward and hiding your boobs. Bonus: Cobra is a great way to increase lung volume so you can take deep, calming breaths.
