Can a Pillow for Breasts Fight Chest Wrinkles?

As the editor for the RealSelf blog, I get a lot of interesting press releases.  So when one came in for a breast pillow that reduces chest wrinkles, I had to ask our doctor community about it.

That's right -- you put the Intimia Breast Pillow on at night and wake up with a smoother, less-wrinkled decollete.  Sounds fantastic right? Well, don't get too excited. 

"If a product seems to good to be true then it probably is," says Cleveland plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Medalie"The pillow may be comfortable, so buy it for that reason. It is unlikely, however, that it will make much of difference in whether your breasts get wrinkles or not."

The satin-y pillow-bra is also marketed with a wrinkle cream -- sold separately, of course.  Is it required for a noticeable difference? 

"The use of our cream is strictly complementary to the benefits of the Intimia Breast Pillow," Intimia creator Irene Komsky, R.N.  told RealSelf.  "As many women use a cream on their face, our cream is used to moisturize and revitalize the skin below the face."

So let's say the wrinkle-fighting aspect of this pillow (+ cream) might work.  Why would a woman strap this on in front of her significant other?

Komsky says it's worth the lack-of-sexiness: "Women already use ear plugs, teeth retainers, eye and face masks, and other types of health/beauty accessories at night. Women all over the world are using the Intimia Breast Pillow in front of their husbands and boyfriends. If she truly cares about her appearance or is seeking sleep comfort and/or pain relief, she wouldn’t be thinking twice about using [it]."

Hopefully we'll get a sample and have someone test it out.  At the very least, I'm sure my boyfriend would enjoy resting his head on it since I wasn't blessed with poofy pillows of my own.  Until then, consider this comment from Dr. Ernesto Hayn:

"Wrinkles come from loss of dermal and muscular thickness and volume. There are many ways to restore these with procedures; i.e. lasers and or therapeutic cosmeceuticals. It is unlikely that this bra does either of those things."

Do you think this pillow is worth the $70 price tag (not including the $30 cream)? Have you tried it? Let us know in the comments below.

I have used the Intima breast pillow for about 4 years in conjunction with Silc Skin silicone decollettte reusable pads (the pillow secures the pad making the pad last longer) & DO DOUBT this product works & has 2 benefits. 1) DECREASES & MINIMIZES further formation of chest wrinkles (yes ladies, we have this to look forward to as we age- but don't expect more than this for this price range). 2) COMFORT! I am a 38C & compression of my breasts when sleeping on my belly or sides is uncomfortable! Using this routine plus religious use of sunscreen during the day has left my chest looking better than most 40-60+ y/o's! My husband is used to it especially when my 5 y/o grandson noticed it peeking above my nightgown & reacted by saying "I like your jewel" (referring to the little decorative bow & jewel on the pillow). Since then my husband always repeats that line & we both laugh! Of course I don't wear it during sex. Use this routine & you will DEFINITELY notice a difference! YOUNG ladies start EARLY in life- be proactive. It's a less expensive way to ward off the signs of aging & creases that form from having larger breasts. I don't work for either company but would love to be their spokesperson because I believe that strongly in the products & results! My husband says "Amen to that!"

I have used the intima breast pillow for about 4 years & NO DOUBT it helps minimize & decrease the formation of chest wrinkles. It's benefit is also 2-fold- I'm a 38C & as we get older, compression of our breasts while sleeping on our sides or belly is uncomfortable. This product does for the breasts what pillows do for our heads, provide comfort. Combine this with SilkSkin decollette silicone reusable pads & you will DEFINITELY see improvement (the pillow anchors the pad in place). My husband has even noticed that my chest looks a lot better than many of my 40-60 y/o friends. Young women- START this routine EARLY to ward off chest wrinkles & during daytime use sunscreen religiously. My 5 y/o grandson once saw the contraption above my night shirt & noticed the little decorative bow & bead & actually said "I like your jewel"! Now my husband always says the same thing PLUS he's impressed with how much better my 58 y/o chest looks! I DO NOT work 4 either company but would be glad to be their spokesperson because I am thankful for their products!

I think Intimia Pillow bra is worth $60 and more (the $70 price tag is incorrect). I've been using this product for more than two months now and I love it. My cleavage wrinkles has gradually disappeared and I sleep much better with the pillow on. What a great idea!

I have been an Aesthetician for 34 years. Lines on the decollete area have always been an issue for many women. First of all, lines form on any area of the body due to constant compression which breaks down collagen. A smoker will develop lines around the mouth. Laughing, over time, causes wrinkles around the eyes. Frowning will cause lines between the brows...etc. Yes, Collagen will rebuild itself with the use of Lasers, Retinol products, Microdermabrasion, Glycolics and fillers. Collagen is a triple helical molecule...somewhat like three bed springs intertwined. Constant pressure will break collagen down. This pillow, which I purchased and use all the time, prevents the lines from forming. The pillow supports my breasts and keeps them from falling together which causes the wrinkles. As for "the lack of sexiness", don't confuse Sex with Prevention ! Have Sex and then put the pillow on for the night. I have never received anything but cute responses about the pillow. I have missed a few nights in a row and my decollete still looks smooth. Men are used to women doing all sorts of female things. This pillow is one of the BEST tricks you will ever have in your bag ! What is sexier ? Wrinkles on your decollete or a smooth youthful one ? Try it...it's comfortable, washable and it WORKS !! This pillow has become the only gift I give my girlfriends !!

Thank you for sharing, Silky & Smooth. I'm glad to hear this is actually working for people! If any of your friends love it like you do, we'd love for them to come on and tell us, too.
