A bra to combat sagging breasts and wrinkles?
May 6, 2011
Rachel de Boer, a Dutch woman and former real estate agent, recently released a new type of bra that claims to help women avoid sagging breasts. The garment is meant to be worn while one sleeps, but does it really work?
De Boer told The Telegraph that she has been making bras for herself for years, but that this is the first one she's marketed. She decided to go public when she heard her friends discussing their frustration with sagging breasts and wrinkles around their chest.
The bra lifts and separates the breast, rather than pressing them together as normal, day-time bras often do. De Boer told the news organization that keeping the breasts apart while sleeping is the key to avoid chest wrinkles.
Breast enhancing procedures rank high in the US according to cosmetic surgery statistics from the The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Breast augmentation is the number one procedure followed by breast reduction (ranked 5th) and breast lift (ranked 8th).
