This actually improves your posture... WOW!!!
Reviewed in the United States on June 6, 2019
I couldn't wait to write this review. I had bought and returned other flimsy posture devices. Until this one. It actually had a firm section (with metal that is somehow cushioned to be comfortable) that goes against the upper part of your spine. So with this on, I feel my spine straightening, my shoulders getting pulled back, and wowza... it actually works splendidly!!
A bit about me: I'm middle aget, was a triathlete when I was younger, and I currently to go the gym about 4 or 5 days a week. I'm in good shape. But I work at my computer most of the day and have developed a desk-job slouch with my shoulders rolling forward. As I am over 50, tightness and pain have been happening in my shoulders over the last year. I go to yoga classes in addition to my gym strength training, get a massage or two a month, try to stretch on my own, and my shoulder tightness and pain persists. I believe the pain is from from my rolling my shoulders forwards when I'm at my desk and computer.
This brace works to correct my posture and it's like my body is breathing fresh air in getting it's posture corrected. The good news is this device is so effective, my "muscle memory" is springing into action. I wear it maybe 30 minutes, take it off, and then I want to pull my shoulders back and sit upright rather than having sloppy posture and rolling my shoulders forward.
One side comment, I did not find this device initially comfortable. It initially cut into my arm pits with a very thin tee shirt on. But they advise wearing over clothing and I'm wearing a sweatshirt now and it feels great. You can also order a couple sheepskin seat belt covers to wrap onto this if you want it more cushy around the shoulders and armpits. What I'm trying to say is don't give up on this just because it's not cushy when you first wear it. It is effective, which is what I care about.
Here is to your health and long life!
(P.S. I have absolutely no affiliation with the manufacturer and they don't know me from blue. I rarely write reviews, only when something is really bad... or really good. This is really good, in my opinion, hence my review!)
