Spas and Salons Have To Adapt For Larger Women

As airplanes make their seats wider to fit the larger passenger, now spas and salons are trying to accomodate women’s curvier shapes.

An innovative and quirky new support device spells the end of rolled-up towels and discomfort for the nation’s increasingly larger-busted treatment lovers. Suitable for all, but ideal for those with naturally large or surgically-enhanced breasts, the Ladypillo ( offers optimum support and comfort without constricting sensitive breast tissue, via strategic contours that fit women’s curves. Research into its design and creation came after speaking to hundreds of therapists and treatment providers (as well as users) from all around the UK, and rigorous testing over many months.

The most recent statistics from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) show that breast augmentation is still the commonest surgical procedure, and the number of women undergoing ‘boob jobs’ rose by over 50% in the last five years. With the influence of curvier celebrities such as Christina Hendricks (including the advent of a so-called “Mad Men boob job”) it is not surprising that – like airplane seats becoming wider – adjustments are made for people’s evolving shapes.

Ladypillo (£59.99) is a contoured upper body support pillow, which relieves pressure on the breasts for women lying on their front, eliminating discomfort and providing total support for the upper body. It is particularly suited to times when breasts are sensitive, such as pre and post menstrual, pre and post natal, pre and post operative and breastfeeding.
