a back brace?
I was a bit skeptical about this at first, but upon receiving it in the mail I tried it out immediately. I am typically a small/medium in shirt size and ordered a small for the posture corrector. It seems that this is measured a little larger as I had a lot of excess strap. The good thing is that it is easy to adjust and can be done in a matter of seconds. I had on the corrector for maybe 30 minutes and could feel a release in tension already. It’s thin enough to still fit seemlessly under your clothing, but still provides the right amount of support in helping with your posture.
I was very surprised of how easy this posture corrector was to use. It has helped me lower my back pain and it forces me really keep posture straight!!! The cool thing is that you put it on, pull the strips to your desired strength and velcro them. Thats it! Ive been able to notice how Ive been so used to bad posture that i even develop a wrong posture to breath. Ive been using it every day and i am Very happy!
So helpful! I've been wearing this every day since I got it. I have a terrible problem of slouching. So much that I have a hump on the back of my neck!! After wearing this so much it's actually helped. My back doesn't hurt as much and I'm getting better at sitting up straight on my own. I highly recommend this!
The first day I wore this product, it caused my upper back to have a weird feeling but it is due to your back straighten out. I don't have a big upper body, and the straps were fine to tighten. It helps pull your arms/shoulders back so your upper body doesn't slouch. If you sit down in your chair with bad posture around middle spine, this won't help much. However, it keeps you conscience about your posture and you'll be more aware to sit straight up. Overall, for the cost of this product, I think it works nicely to help you fix your posture. It still takes effort, don't think this will magically cure you of having a bad posture. Even when I take off the back posture corrector from wearing it for 1/2 the day, my body and mind tries to fix my posture while I walk around the house.
So this basically feels like your wearing a back pack really tight. As soon as i put it on and tightened it, it cracked my back and relieved some pain I didn’t know i had. I initially purchased this because of my job, where I sit at a desk most of the time, I realized I slouched a lot in my chair. I didn’t have pain or anything but didn’t want something to arise in the future. It added a couple inches to my shoulder length and it definitely helps me keep my back straight and added a inch to my height. Now it looks like I walk around with my head high and added some more confidence in my posture. I wear it on my under shirt and you can’t tell I have it on. Would definitely recommend.
I got it specifically because I had some problems with my slouching shoulders, and them looking much broader than they actually were, and needed something that would eventually fix them. It did that very well! It wasn't very comfortable for the first day (I wore it continuously for 10 hours), but the second day it almost didn't hurt at all. After nearly a week now, it feels very comfortable and supportive of a more natural posture, and shoulder discomfort that I had previously is gone! I sleep much better now, and some problems that I didn't think would go away did (I had a protruding collarbone on my right shoulder that's settled back in where it goes, which feels much better). I even bought another for the family, since they wanted to use it too! Definitely recommended!
During this time while we've all been working from home, I've noticed upper back pain. Being at the computer for extended amounts of time makes you unaware of your posture, sometimes to the point where bad posture is comfortable. Knowing that it's not healthy long term, wearing this device reminds you of when your shoulders begin to roll forward, putting a firm pressure there, so you know when you need to stand up straighter. Over time, you get used to avoiding that sensation and a proper posture becomes comfortable again, which prevents back pain at the end of the day. Forcing yourself to stand up straight feels awkward without this device, but with it, it helps remind you when you're falling back into bad habits. I'm sure over time, it won't be needed once mentally knowing what proper posture feels like.
So originally I purchased this for my self just to try it... well my girl took it and pretty much Kept it and now it’s hers lol... she loves it! She says it really helps her not to hunch. You can still kind bend your back but it’s like a reminder to stay straight! She likes it so much she wears it while working out on her elliptical!! She says it’s easy to put on and easy for her to take off.. it’s been a little over 2 weeks now that she’s had it and she believes it real helps. Four stars for not having a family packs or couples set, so I wouldnt've share it lol
After using multiple posture correctors, I had pretty much given up on having pain relief for my upper back due to my minor scoliosis. This went on sale and I figured, why not? I gave it a shot and instantly felt relief. Be sure to follow the instructions provided on the little slip of paper they give you, as well as the ones listed on the page. They also provided velcro extending straps for those who may need them. Overall a great purchase on my end, and if this ever breaks or I know someone who needs it, I'll definitely be recommending this one!
I work 12 hour shifts in an office setting, three days consecutively. I noticed my lower back pain increasing and some rounding in my shoulders. My doctor recommended a posture corrector, and this one has worked wonders. I have not used other posture correctors in the past, but this one seems as good as any. I experience less pain in my lower back and no more shoulder rounding when I use this device. I recommend wearing it under clothing.
I love that this is adjustable so as your muscles relax and strengthen you are able to make it tighter. But it's also great when your starting to not pull your shoulders back. I believe this sets it apart from other products like this. This really helps take strain off my upper back and is helping my back to be straighter. It's not a one time use it and everything is corrected product, but it does help you work towards a straighter and less sore back.
Immediately seeing results. I tend to slouch a lot whenever I work at the office. From all the pain, decided to try this out under my blazer. I can feel whenever I slouch and it's been a few weeks and can immediately see that my back has improved!! My brother also has used this during the weekend! Awesome product!
It works very well. So why 4 stars? It's a bit uncomfortable, especially if you have to move your arms around a lot. Would love to have it in a softer model.
Firstly, it does work well. But for a big-breasted person like me the brace gets uncomfortable after wearing it for a while, especially in the armpits.
After a few weeks of use I can safely say this posture corrector 100% does the job! It's super light and comfortable and easy to quickly put on before going out, running errands, etc. I've always had a bad habit of slouching, especially while sitting down at my desk so having this strapped around my back keeps my back straight and my shoulders back.
Just got mine a few days ago. It's much more comfortable than I expected, and it makes me more conscious of my posture throughout the day! I typically wear it with either an undershirt or just over my regular clothes. My back is already feeling a lot better, hoping to see more improvements to my mid/lower back pain in the next week or two. Great purchase!
Really keeps from slouching, easy to adjust, the material is pleasant and high-quality. Thanks to the seller, I advice you to buy!
I was a little skeptical at first but this brace is the real deal. I'm surprised at how lightweight it is! I wear mine for about 2-3 hours througout the day with no issues.
Been wearing mine for a few weeks and my posture has improved so much already! I usually sit for about 4-5 hours throughout the day, and using this posture has helped me be more conscious of my posture and also relieves a lot of my back pain. I'm definitely happy with my purchase.
I don't have serious posture problems, but I definitely slouch way too often behind my desk and I was starting to feel some tightness in my upper back and shoulders. Been using mine for about 2 weeks and the tension in my back in shoulders has gone down quite a bit. I'd say this is perfect for people who find themselves slouching all the time and need a quick and convenient solution to correct their posture.
I have a really bad habit of slouching at my desk and I'm really noticing a difference with this posture corrector especially with my lower back pain. I mostly use mine at work and my posture has already improved in the last few weeks. Love it!
Ordered for husband. He likes it! Fixes the back and helps to keep good posture. The corrector itself is really well-made. I recommend!
This product works pretty well for daily use. But you have to wear it over your clothes or it is slightly uncomfortable. It would only really make sense to wear this around the house, or if you are working in an office where not many people see you. I couldn't really see myself wearing this out to do groceries., so for that reason, I took off a few points.
Got one for me and a friend. We both work in IT and it's great to prevent slouching!
