It is natural for breasts to droop with age, particularly in women with large breasts who have had several pregnancies. Jogging causes saggy breasts. Research from the University of Portsmouth, UK, in 2006 found that when you jog your breasts move in a three-dimensional figure-of-eight. With the average 36C breast weighing 200–300 g, this puts a lot of strain on the fragile supporting tissue. A very supportive sports bra can reduce bounce by 765%, but does not eliminate it completely.
