"And her breasts fell like hanged men."

Breast Ptosis, or sagging breasts is a medical term for the drooping or sagging of the breast. Some women have this condition naturally whereas many won't experience it at all, until after pregnancy or weight gain and loss. Age and size is also a factor in breast ptosis as many women with large breasts have some degree of ptosis as they get older.
