Best boob lifting creams and masks for saggy boobs

The best creams, lotions and masks to help lift and firm your boobs

4th February 2024 | Author: Katherine O'Shea

As we get older or our weight fluctuates, our boobs tend to droop and sag. If this is something you’re worried about, here is our pick of tried-and-tested boob-lifting creams, serums, lotions, and masks


WHAT CAUSES SAGGY BOOBS AND CREPEY SKIN

Your breasts are made up of two types of tissue – fatty tissue, and glandular tissue.

Both overlie the pectoral muscles on your chest. The fatty tissue determines your boob size, and the connective tissue and ligaments give your boobs their overall shape.

For many reasons, your connective tissue may worsen and your ligaments will start to stretch, causing your boobs to sag.

Eventually (sob) our lovely, once-pert, boobs are going to drop or start to sag.

Whether it’s down to ageing, menopause, weight loss, or because you’ve had a baby, there will come a time when you’ll face the so-called “boob drop.”

If it’s any consolation, breast sagging is completely natural and experienced by nearly all women.

It’s also not something to be ashamed of.

At mamabella we’re never critical of women’s bodies – we have sagging boobs, stretch marks, dark circles, and all the other wonderful things that come with age too – but we do understand the need to want to ‘fix’ them.

Or at least delay their onset.

If it’s something you’re worried about, or it’s impacting your self-esteem, we’ve put together a list of the best boob-lifting creams, serums, and lotions below.

We’ve previously spoken to Dr Ross, Medical Director of Cosmedics to get his expert advice on how to get rid of the boob drop, and you can read that here. We also have a list of firming creams that will do the job and have handpicked the best neck and chest creams


Best products for saggy boobs

The most important ingredient to look for when it comes to firming your skin is B3 or niacinamide, which will help to improve the elasticity of your skin and reduce wrinkles.

Here are the best products we’ve found for helping to tick these boxes.


1. Editor’s Pick: Bloom and Blossom Lovely Jubbly Gel

£30 | Buy now

Bloom and Blossom Lovely Jubbly GelBloom and Blossom

This Bloom and Blossom gel will help to shape, tone, and firm your neck, making your skin look plumper. If you have crepiness on your chest, this gel will help to smooth out your skin and make it look firmer and less saggy.

Although to get the best results, you’re going to want to use this product daily.

This bust-firming gel contains co-enzyme Q10, which helps support collagen production in the skin, making your skin appear firmer.

There’s also Quince-hydrogel, which helps support your skin’s natural lipid production (the bit that keeps your skin feeling firm and toned).

Finally, it has Angelica Root Oil which helps boost the radiance of the skin on your chest.

The only downside we found with this boob-firming gel is the smell of the product isn’t the best. It’s a little flowery, which suits the name of the brand of course, but this makes it a bit overpowering.

2. Budget Buy: The Ordinary 100% Niacinamide Powder

£5 | Buy now

The Ordinary 100% Niacinamide PowderThe Ordinary

This isn’t a cream in its own right. Instead, The Ordinary 100% Niacinamide is a powder you mix with your current moisturiser.

Niacinamide is an ingredient that has been shown to be fantastic for the skin on your chest and boobs.

It helps improve your complexion by smoothing textural irregularities, as well as helping to minimise your skin being oily.

You can personalise how much you mix in with your water-soluble moisturiser or face cream. All you need to do is to mix about a quarter scoop in the palm of your hand into the moisturiser you already own.

This can also be a much more affordable way to introduce boob-lifting cream to your routine.

3. Luxury Buy: B-Perky Firming Mask by Maelys

£49 | Buy now

B-Perky Firming Mask by MaelysMaelys

The clues are in the title for the B-Perky Firming Mask from Maelys and while it’s expensive, you most certainly get what you pay for.

Not only does this boob-lifting cream help revive your skin’s natural elasticity and improve the overall appearance of your bust area, but it will also cleanse your skin, reduce redness and give the area a lovely glow.

This chest-firming mask has gone through clinical trials and consumer testing, which has shown that after 28 days of use your skin should look firmer and smoother.

The Palmitoyl Isoleucine works to firm up your skin and the Kigelia Africana will help give a tighter look to your loose skin. Finally, the Jojoba Oil will leave your skin feeling smooth and looking more radiant.

Please note, though, that this mask is specifically designed for your boobs, so don’t go using it on your face!

It’s also not possible, or certainly not easy to get this product in the UK so you’ll need to ship it over from the US. This will potentially add customs charges and shipping fees to the overall cost.

4. Best boob mask: Juicy Pair Boob and Bum Duo

Best boob mask: Juicy Pair Nourishing Boob and Bum DuoInc.Redible

Packed with Vitamin C, antioxidants, and a slice of watermelon extract – plus a pinch of pure peach for the bum cream – this double-use mask will help make the skin on both your bum and your boobs more hydrated and moisturised, making it less likely to sag.

This is a great product if you want to make the fine lines on your boobs less noticeable.

All you need to do with this product is cleanse your boobs with warm water, let them dry, and then lay the mask taught over each boob. With the arch of the watermelon under each of your nipples.

Unlike most boob-firming products this one targets the boobs, rather than the chest area.

We love the cheeky design of this product, with its watermelon and peach-shaped sheets. Who said getting rid of boob and bum sag can’t be fun!

As well as toning your skin and improving elasticity, this neck cream from Prai gives your skin a lovely glow.

It uses so-called Sepilift technology, as well as hyaluronic acid to lift and tighten sagging skin, reduce fine lines and help improve any crepiness.

This cream feels luxurious and is really easy to apply.

The Shea Butter and squalane ingredients help to trap in the moisture, leaving your skin feeling hydrated long after you’ve applied it.

There’s also the added benefit of reducing the appearance of age spots thanks to the addition of mulberry, saxifrage, and grapeseed extracts.

Simply spray this serum on your skin and let it sink in.

It contains 5% niacinamide with 4% Idealift Peptides to fight the visible effects of sagging. To boost the impact, lock the hydration in with a cream or lotion on top.

6. Best boob pads: Booby Tape Silicone Chest Pad 

£23 | Buy now

Booby Tape Anti-Wrinkle Silicone Chest Pad Booby Tape

The Booby Tape Anti-Wrinkle Silicone Chest Pad does exactly what it says on the tin.

It’s a sticky pad that you put on your chest, in between your boobs. It’s made from silicone, which has lots of benefits for the skin around your boobs because it prevents wrinkles by increasing collagen formation.

It also increases your skin’s elasticity and helps to restore its natural glow.

We prefer to wear this pad at night because that’s when our chest area is most creased. You can instead wear this pad for 30 minutes in the daytime, making it quick and easy to get in your daily boob-lifting fix.

To get the best results, you’ll want to use a silicone chest pad about 3-4 times per week. You can read more about the benefits of these pads in our science of silicone patches.

We also recommend the Oia Skin patches. They’re more expensive but we have a unique MAMABELLA discount code should you want to use it, to get 10% off. This depends on your budget and needs.

What causes “boob drop”?

Although there are many causes for your breasts changing shape, in all instances it’s gravity you can blame for your boob drop.

“As we age, it’s only natural for skin to lose its elasticity and moisture levels,” Dr Ross Perry, Medical Director of Cosmedics told mamabella.

“This includes our breasts because the skin is very sensitive and thin; it contains fewer sebaceous glands and limited melanocytes meaning it’s more easily damaged.” But you can prevent your breast ligaments from stretching as much, or at least make it look less obvious.

Firstly a good-fitting bra is an absolute must. This will help support your breasts and prevent your ligaments from stretching over time. Make sure (as we always recommend at mamabella) to not skimp on the SPF. Damage from the sun will make your chest look much older prematurely.

Smoking is also something to be avoided, for all the obvious health reasons, but also because it will damage the skin on and around your boobs.

Another natural way to boost your pectoral muscles (which your boobs rest on) is by doing push-ups or using a bench press to give them a boost.


What is a boob mask and do I need one?

You’re likely familiar with using a face mask to help the skin of your face and a boob mask is no different.

Unlike the skin on your face, the skin on your chest and around your boobs has fewer hair follicles and oil glands. This makes the skin more sensitive.

Women’s chest areas and saggy boobs have been largely overlooked when it comes to keeping our skin looking younger for longer, probably because they’re under our clothes. But a boob mask is a really easy option to help make your boobs perkier, supple, and hydrated.

The stick-on ones are particularly great to wear at night because when you sleep, particularly if you sleep on your front or on your side, the skin on your chest area will fold or crease. This means fine lines or wrinkles are more likely to appear and deepen in this area. However, by wearing a boob mask you can help stretch out your skin, helping to keep it smoother.

The benefit of using a boob mask, in a cream form, is the ingredients can help draw moisture into your skin. They can also increase elasticity, help to smooth out your wrinkles and repair any damaged skin.

What’s not to love? You apply the product to your skin, wait for it to dry and once it starts cracking, remove it with warm water and a flannel. Much like you would do if applying a face mask.
