Road Test: Intimia Breast Pillow
This project was a very interesting one, to say the least, and definitely a new experience. However, trying something new is a challenge that can result in a positive or negative outcome - or even a mixed review. Naturally, I like a challenge, so I was excited to try this product out: Intimia, a Breast Pillow for women. Yes ladies, it does exist!
Let’s start out by giving you a quick description of the actual contraption. It was designed to prevent wrinkles and improve existing lines in the cleavage area. Intimia was also created to be a comfort pillow for your breasts. It alleviates symptoms such as tender breasts, effects of breast surgery and breastfeeding. The actual pillow sits in between your breasts while the straps wrap around your arms, similar to a backpack or razor back bra.
How does it feel? Does it actually work?
Initially, figuring out how to put it on and tighten the straps to make sure it fit snugly and comfortably against my body was the hardest part ... but it wasn't that difficult. Once you have it on your bare body (according to instructions; the enclosed picture diagrams help tremendously!), you are good to go. From then on, you can toss, turn and easily get in your comfortable sleeping position.
It's a little weird because you can feel the product when lying on your side or your stomach. Personally, I did not feel any different effects of the product, other than a bra-like contraption on my body (which I hate wearing and can’t wait to take off!). I would imagine that this product helps with the above symptoms and becomes more comfortable over time. But in my opinion, free-styling is the way to go while you sleep!
So, I would use this product if it were given to me as a gift (but it would probably be hidden in a drawer somewhere). Ladies, if you want to see if it works for you, visit intimia.com for more information. It is worth checking it out, just for curiosity's sake alone!
The specter of heredity has lurked in the darker corners of Cheryl Perkins’ mind for as long as she can remember.
Her mother died of colon cancer four years ago, and nearly all of the women on her mother’s side of the family had hysterectomies between age 45 and 50 because of cancer diagnoses.
