I have one but haven't been able to get in the habit of using it regularly enough to know whether it produces any results or not. Your post has inspired me to give it a real shot.

This is so cool! I was getting chest wrinkles from side-sleeping, so I trained myself to sleep on my back with a pillow under my knees. Then I developed nerve pain in my leg from the pressure of the pillow, which would shift up under my thighs as I slept. Lately, I've been sleeping on my side again (which resolved the nerve pain) with a pillow stuffed between my breasts to prevent the chest crease. Awkward! I'm going to have to try this; thanks for posting. Smile

I have used the Chest Saver for one night. This morning my chest is as wrinkle free as a baby's. To tell you the truth, I'm totally stunned. I sleep mostly on my back but do find myself on my sides quite a bit too. I am more well endowed than I would like to be (hate it) & my 58 year old chest is looking like it's 80. I've been doing wall push ups & that's helping tighten somewhat but using the Chest Saver last night really, really, really worked. I'm thinking of buying dozens in case they are ever discontinued.
Now for the down side. It looks a little weird but under a t shirt or pajamas who cares? (actually I might sometimes Smile ). I bought the neck wrap that came with it and I thought it was kind of strange too. Then the lights went out and it was okay. Also, both are definitely constricting to sleep in. That part may take alot of getting used to. I was more ready to rip the neck wrap off that the "bra" but I want to persevere with it as well. You apply your cream/lotion under the product then place a sponge-like thing (non absorbent) and then the actual Chest Saver items on top. I wake up often during the night anyway and at times I found it all a bit sweaty. But this morning I am DELIGHTED.
P.S. Neck "rings" are still there and my neck - even for my age - is quite tight- no cords or wobbles - but this morning it feels even tighter and certainly more moisturized and nicer generally.
If anyone wants to purchase one of these "gizomos" the shipping was pretty fast (even to Canada) and you had better order before I buy them all. Cool
I am very interested to see how everything will look after an extended period of use.

This sounds awesome, I have slowly developed a bit of chest wrinkles like most from sleeping on my side, I have attempted to train myself to sleep on my back but occassionly wake up on my side or if really tired and cant sleep lay on my side for a while. Im also paranoid of wrinkles around the eyes with side sleeping.
If they ship to Australia Im buying one of these.
Dont know what they will come up with next though Laughing

Night two was long Neutral . It is going to take longer to get used to the chest saver than I thought. Last night I used the foamy layer on my chest & neck (1st night I used neck only) & while I know that it made the products that I applied penetrate well, it was not very comfortable at all. The foam is quite stiff (and about 1/8" thick!). Sooooo...I am going to try night three without. The foam left some "dents" around the edges - they can't be seen & I know that they will fade as the day goes on but my chest looks as smooth as smooth can be. In fact I'm wearing a deeper "V" neck t-shirt that I have worn but not liked the look of as much as I do right now.
I was also thinking that, because the results were so immediate, that someone could wear it the night before an event or special day. I really don't know, of course, at this point about any cumulative effects Wink

Hi, just bought a chest savers bra, so great finding this forum and other ladies giving it a go. Thanks to Ruth Marion, I feel better prepared for some annoyance, I just hope I get the amazing results she has had! I am 39 and have just got engaged, and hate knowing that these creases on my chest are going to dictate which dress I choose. I will keep you all updated.

I"ll certainly keep updates going on my success with this little find.
Last night I ditched the neck thing. It was all feeling a bit (make that a LOT) confining. With both the neck saver and the chest saver on it was too claustrophobic. Not a problem though - I may work on using it later or just try something different for my neck. It was my chest that had an old lady's cleavage and there is a polar opposite of that now. Cool

I continue to use the Chest Saver with awesome success. I save it for upcoming special occasions (& I'm sure more often in the summer) - I just do not like to do it every night as it is very claustrophobic (still). Always on a quest to find the next best.....I found the sleep bra (www.sleepbra.com) ..... and, while the actual bra doesn't come in my size, the insert looks alot more tolerable than the Chest Saver plate of armour. I'm going to try it out with a sport bra that I have and I will report back.

Thank-you for the update! If you do come up with a method to make your own "sleep bra" please come back and share your ideas. I have a latex pillow that isn't being used and wonder what would happen if I cut out a chunk of it and custom shaped it so that it fits like a divider between the "girls" and then hold it in place by wearing a sports bra over it (much like the SleepBra). I would also cover the divider in bamboo material before using it so that it reduces any extra heat and moisture that can develop from the latex being next to your skin. That's all I've got for now, what do you think? Smile

While I think that your pillow might work, I don't know if covering it would keep it from being hot & not "breathing". But maybe you are onto something. How about some memory foam from an upholstery shop? Just make sure that it isn't too thick - I'm sure that they have different sizes. Good luck!

Hi Ruth - The one thing I do not like about latex products (ie., pillows & mattresses) is the fact that this material does not breathe. Since 100% bamboo fiber wicks moisture away from the body, I am hoping a cover made from this will offset any heat from the latex divider while I am sleeping. I love my bamboo sheets and find them very effective if you tend to perspire at night.

I don't know what would happen with memory foam, but the first thought that came to mind was that it wouldn't be firm enough to maintain the shape of a sturdy divider (since it compresses so easily when you put pressure on it). I don't want to be sleeping with a slate rock on my chest but at the same time I need something firm enough to keep the breasts separated and the chest area smooth. If you do decide to order the SleepBra would you mind posting a picture of the actual divider and telling me how firm it is (and what the actual thing is made out of)? I just know I won't be able to sleep in the other contraption that you really like and hope that a DIY sleepbra will address my immediate needs.

Thanks for your help! Smile

I've been using the Chest-A-Peel (see my thread on the skincare forum recently) and I love, love it. It's just thick enough without being too hot. I get night sweats being perimenopausal, so I can't stand wearing my sports bra to bed.
It doesn't leave marks, justs smooths and it's light.

Annie how's the stickiness of the chest-a-peel going now? Have you bought any electrode gel to try with it?

I have not bought the gel yet. The stickiness is still going fine, but I have washed it a couple of times in between to renew it. The corners don't stick as well as they used to, but the rest stays good.
Where do you find that gel?

I've tried putting this address in here twice but it's not taking me to the exact page. So put tac gel into the search box when you get to the page.

Thanks so much for the links. I wonder will it hurt when I pull it off with that stuff?
It kind of pulls now a little, but not too bad.

I missed the thread about the Chest-A-Peel, Annie, so thanks for mentioning it. How many times have you used your CAP? The biggest turn off for me is that the adhesive wears out after 30 days (with daily use, I am assuming). I am definitely interested in this product though, so if you find it lasts longer than 30 wears, or discover a way to extend the life of the CAP, I might just go ahead and purchase one.

In the meantime, I guess I will continue to work on making a DIY SleepBra and look around for a sportsbra made with bamboo material in it.

Just did a quick search and pulled up a bamboo sportsbra that looks interesting.

Quote:
Support, style and beauty all in one. You may not want to cover-up this sports bra. Made of 70% organic bamboo, 25% organic cotton, and 5% spandex. Three layers of fabric strategically placed allow for support along with freedom of movement.

Currently Only Available in Black

$19.50

http://bamboohomeusa.com/bamboo-bra.php

Worse case scenerio if it doesn't work as a DIY SleepBra, I'll use it when I work-out and hopefully feel cooler. Or I will try wearing it backwards at night and see if it keeps my boobs separated enough to keep the chest wrinkles at bay. Razz

It has lasted longer than 30 times for sure, plus it's somewhat lightweight. Now when the adhesive starts to not be as sticky, I'll try that tac gel and see how long I can make this baby last!

I will be watching for any updates from you regarding the average lifespan of the CAP and hope that if you try the tac gel later on, that it isn't too sticky or irritating to your skin.
