KUSH Support- a pillow to save your decolette?

April 2, 2011 Reviewed by admin 11 Comments
People are always making up odd inventions and for the most part, they don't really pan out. Most of them seem like gimmicks that leave me scratching my head and wondering "Does that actually work?" Enter Cathinka Chandler and quite possibly one of the oddest creations in recent memory. Like many women, she's tried creams to remove wrinkles on her chest and decolette area but wasn't making progress, so she began to think about the cause of the wrinkles in that area.

Chandler would sleep on her side, as many people do, but in doing so, gravity and the pressure of her breasts would cause wrinkles in her chest area. It was simple, any motion that squeezed her chest together for long periods of time would aid in wrinkling faster. To combat this, Chandler created the KUSH Support. The KUSH Support is essentially a mini plastic pillow that fits between both breast and acts as a support. This will help alleviate the pressure of one breast resting on top of another and possibly, help slow wrinkling in the decolette area.

It seems to be an interesting concept which has help bring it attention from numerous outlets.

So far, the KUSH Support has made it's way to several shows including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Wendy Williams Show, and The Doctors and despite people finding it a little funny, The Doctors did give it a nod of approval. It can be used by women in different scenarios but the ones most prominently noted are women with a C-cup and higher, women with breast implants, pregnant women, and nursing mothers. The KUSH support comes with a "slip-resistant surface" and is shaped in almost an hour glass form to fit more comfortably between a woman's breast.

The mini pillow of sorts runs for $19.99 and comes in multiple colors and there are also options for pregnant women, women with implants, and women with natural breast - though the only difference I can see between the three options are that different size KUSH's are offered.

The biggest cons it seems are that women with a smaller bust wouldn't find this effective and it may take some women some getting used to. We can't say for sure if this works as every woman's body is different, but it just might be something to look into if you're trying to possibly slow down wrinkles in the decolette area.

    Wouldn't a pair of tube socks rolled up do pretty much the same thing? Plus they would have the added benefit of absorbing any night time sweats induced either by menopause or just plain old summer without!

    I have to join this discussion- it's ballywackers! I've gone 60 and am a side sleeper. I've oft spoken of my sun worship and the damage my entire body should be exposing from it. My decollete is second only to my face. And I have nary a wrinkle between me puppies! Burt's Bees I tell ya! ~jk

    Ha! I was standing in the wrong line the day G-d handed out boobs but I also have no wrinkles, now I know why.

    The funny thing is that I have never heard of this product and was trying to come up with something the other day to do the same thing. I have tried different things, and am worried that I'm going to wrinkle pretty badly in that area if I don't put some sort of support there.

    It seems every time I come up with an idea someone beats me to it!` I don't care, I'm still going to develop my own.

    Ok picture this ~ I go to bed with some potion or lotion on every-night, even if I skip (which I hardly ever do) I at least have eye & lip cream on...currently I'm testing a 'hair growth' product, so NOW I also have blue on my eyebrows and at my hairline ;-)...hehe...can you picture it ~ so I do have larger breast and what is a V crease at my lower decollete, but I gotta tell you, I am actually afraid to even think about adding this to my bedtime ritual because I think my husband will just about have a cow...or at least a small calf! I like the idea, I really do. During my last pregnancy I used to pull a skinny pillow to my chest sideways for just this same purpose, and it worked. But I swear my hubby will think I nuts...he already makes fun of my blue oompa loompa eyebrows and THAT's where I draw the line ~ HA!

    I too am wondering about the different sizes...what do you choose if one breast is larger than the other?

    Good grief :)

    This does say April 2, right? Not April 1?
    This may be the funniest thing I heard all week.

    This might be more practical? And slightly less stupid looking for the benefit of anyone sharing the bed... (only slightly, though.)

    I am intrigued by the different sizes. Does one choose based on how pendulous - or not - one is? That was a rhetorical kind of question.
