the big lines on chest above boobs in a 'V' shape... how do we get rid?

You know those lines you get, especially if you have big boobs and are a certain age?
I'm only 38 but I appear to be that age...
Is there anything to be done about it or do I have to have a big V on my chest forever now?

I remember someone saying you should always sleep on your back, not your side, to help avoid this. High factor sunscreen and lots of moisturiser.

Bunbaker Wed 24-Jul-13 19:36:56

I'm just envy that you have big boobs.

I lost weight and mine faded a lot.

FrameyMcFrame Wed 24-Jul-13 19:54:19

Oh well, I always sleep on my side, don't think I casn change that now though.
High factor sunschreen then

peggotty Wed 24-Jul-13 19:57:37

Oh god yes! I have this and actually now I think of it, it fa's diminished since I've lost weight - also have been religiously moisturising so maybe it's a combination of both? Have read that a light application of oil also helps the appearance of it.

peggotty Wed 24-Jul-13 19:58:01

Has not fa's!!

I don't see how anyone can sleep on their back all night. They say you change position 60 times a night in your sleep- so how you stay on your back beats me. Any fat in that region def makes it a lot worse.

Coconut oil massaged in at night helps soften lines like that.

shaggyrogers Wed 24-Jul-13 20:42:44

This sort of thing Po.
I always sleep on my back as I get uncomfortable on my side or front.

madmomma Wed 24-Jul-13 20:52:32

God I'm starting with those and I'm only 34. I see the beginnings of my Mother's decolletage. Can't be sundamage in my case cos I'm lily white and always covered in moisturiser + spf. For me it's definitely sleeping in crumply positions and carrying extra weight on my upper body. Joy joy joy.

I am 45 and have really only noticed it this year tis grim. I have extended my face serum/cream application down to my boobs and it looks a bit better-its more obvious when tanned.

missbopeep Wed 24-Jul-13 20:59:44

Mine are bad in the morning but soften a bit as the day goes on.You can get them filled with filler I've heard, but would cost a lot! Bras that push everything together into a cleavage don't help either- back to lift and separate!

FrameyMcFrame Wed 24-Jul-13 21:21:55

Yes I'm a bit sunkissed and that makes it more noticeable.
It's not as bad as that picture!!! It's just one clear line on each side.
I do have big boobs (34f) for my size but I'm not overweight, my BMI is 23 so I don't feel I should be loosing any weight necessarily.

TSSDNCOP Wed 24-Jul-13 21:34:56

I am 44 and it's a lot worse when I wake up than by mid morning. I sleep on my sides mostly judging by my hair when I wake up.

I moisturise like mad these days. Nivea in the blue bottle and I sweep Clinique moisturiser down my neck and chest. Vast improvement.

In the sun factor 30 mostly for the grease factor also works. Mine looks better when I have a tan, but that goes for me all over.

MrsDesperado Wed 24-Jul-13 21:39:25

I saw this Nightbra mentioned on another thread. Can't find any reviews but am intrigued if it works.

changeforthebetter Wed 24-Jul-13 21:46:30

Nearly £50 for a bra out of which your norks hang?? shock I. Would love a good night bra but not at all persuaded by that.

I've had those since I was about 16. (32FF.) Don't think they're going anywhere sadly.

2kidsintow Wed 24-Jul-13 21:50:52

I have these (39 years old). I find they look worse in the morning. I too have started moisturising my face and now carry on down my chest too.

Sunscreen on that area, and avoid too much sun.

Higher necklines are something I've got used to - although I have big norks, so have to balance the dip of the neckline to try and get something that covers this area a bit more, but doesn't cover up to my neck as it makes my chest look even bigger.

Dieting is something I'm trying to do (and failing!)

MrsDesperado Wed 24-Jul-13 21:51:13

Haha I do chuckle at what DH would think of he saw me wearing it change.
I've found reference to another one too, looked on Selfridges but doesn't seem to be stocked any more wonder why

£50 is a lot but it would be nice to stop the wrinkles appearing, no?

FrameyMcFrame Thu 25-Jul-13 09:38:13

oooh crikey that's interesting. and bizarre!

I think I would buy one but I'm saving up for my holidays at the moment so it will have to be after that.

That picture could be me !

I'm 45 so old but I am a size 8 0r 10 (always have been ) with small norks so its not weight thats an cause for me.

Have found the coconut oil so will try that tonight.

I'm 53 and have big norks. I massage coconut oil in after my shower and it seems to help minimise their appearance.
