Why we like this support..

We tested this for over 3 months before bringing it to you on our website. This patented support has many features that we particularly like which are designed with the wearers comfort in mind.

  • Over the shoulder area the material is soft and comfortable to prevent irritation.
  • Many posture supports can cause rubbing and chaffing underneath the arm but the design of this posture support brace eliminates this problem.
  • The lower front fastening avoids any rib irritation and also offers great lumbar support which is a key area of musculo-skeletal discomfort in those with poor posture.

When wearing this posture support your shoulders are encouraged both downward and back in to a natural alignment associated with correct posture. The Y shape design helps straighten and encourage your thoracic spine into a more natural postural alignment and the additional lumbar support helps eliminate lower thoracic and lumbar discomfort.

The construction consists of several semi-elastic areas that allow comfortable freedom of movement while still maintaining and encouraging postural correction.

  • Helps Prevent Slouching
  • Corrects Round Shoulders
  • Look younger and feel taller

Great and so far effective product but delivery took 6 days so a little bit disappointing hence the 4 stars rather than 5. However, would say the customer service team were very quick and helpful in tracing my parcel. I would shop with you again based on my experience.

Dear Gordon, thank you for your honest review and once again our apologies with the delayed delivery.
James (Customer Care)
My physio recommended this to me and I am very pleased she did. It has made a great improvement over the last 8 weeks. It takes a few times of wearing to get used to it which I guess is where my muscles were adapting but overall very comfortable and easy to use after the first few times wearing it.
Brian
StarStarStarStarStar
Dear Brian, Many thanks for your review and input. I would agree that for some people it does take the muscles a couple of times of wearing before they start to relax but I guess it's worth it if your posture starts to look better.
Tim (Registered Osteopath)
Purchased on behalf of my daughter who has, to-date, worn it on 8 days but finds that, although not too uncomfortable, the straps coming from underarm and initailly flat tend to be folded in half at the front of shoulders within a short time of fitting.
Keith
StarStarStarStarStar
Dear Keith, Thank you for your valued review. We are always interested in our product reviews whether they be good or bad as honest reviews help with decision making for other customers.
Daisy (Customer Care)
It takes abit if getting used to I have worn it for a couple of hours and my right shoulder pain has gone. The only problem I have with it is the shoulder straps need to be wider or very slightly thinner as I am finding them rucking up and irritating my under arms as I am a larger built person. Everywhere else fits.
Amy
StarStarStarStarStar
Dear Amy, Many thanks for taking the time to share your feedback, we always appreciate honest reviews of our products. Have you tried wearing your support over a vest/tshirt as this may reduce the rubbing without effecting the posture control?
Tim (Registered Osteopath)
Great product. I nearly didn't buy this simply because I had purchased a different one from a high street shop but it was very uncomfortable particularly under my arms where it rubbed. However, I did buy yours and as described it doesn't rub and is therefore really comfortable to wear.
Alex
StarStarStarStarStar
Hi Alex, Many thanks for taking the time to send us your review. We are pleased that this is very comfortable.
James (Customer Care)
Quality build, clear instructions, arrived within the 3-5 day delivery window. Immediate relief upon use. Easy to wear throughout the day with no unsightly lumps evident when worn under a shirt. Product receives 5 stars from me ��
ANDREW
StarStarStarStarStar
Hi Andrew, Thank you for taking the time to share your review and we are pleased to hear that you are getting immediate relief.
James Customer Care
I've had chronic, severe back ache since a horse riding accident 25yrs ago. This coupled with a blood disorder in which trauma doesn't heal properly has made life a misery. Loads of input has helped but lately more acute pain and slouched stance. So I have tried this Posture Support Brace and enjoyed virtually immediate relief. Have just returned from 5hr drive and a week's camping, wearing it daily all day. Fantastic! Sure it does get a bit busy under the arms, but the pain relief is worth it. So impressed I've bought a second one to avoid missing out on wash day. I'm 66 yr old man with heart disease and every little helps!

Hi Stephen, great to hear you're in less pain and discomfort and many thanks for taking the time to share your review. Have you seen our video review offer?
Tim (Osteopath)
This is really helping my posture after only a few days it was noticeably better and it is easy to wear all day at work without anyone noticing it so far. If you want to help your posture I would recommend this product highly. Delivery took a bit longer than expected so 5 stars for product but 4 for delivery.

I am pleased that this is not at all bulky (your picture makes it look slightly) and I am able to wear it without it being obviously noticed. It is comfortable although I wear it over a base layer at work. Thanks.

Excellent product simply because it really does correct my terrible posture. I wear it for several hours a day and feel that even when I take it off my posture remains better.

Questions
Question from Lucy Holmes
I have a lot of shoulder stiffness and pain slightly rounded shoulders and fhp. Can this be used to retrain my body or will it be required permanently to support my shoulders?
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (18/04/18)
Dear Lucy, Thank you for your question, firstly just to let our other readers know that 'fhp' is Forward Head Posture. The Posture support brace is designed to help retrain your muscles and joints that are responsible for your spinal alignment and posture. Most people with poor posture will have developed this over a period of time and during that time muscle tensions will often become unbalanced which will result in the over shortening of important postural muscles. The consequences of these muscle imbalances will also be seen in the spinal alignment which is all too often pulled into a hunched upper back with a FHP. This is often a cause of pain in the neck, shoulders and upper back as the spine is pulled into an incorrect alignment and the muscles are subjected to increased physical loading. An average adult head weighs 12lbs and as fhp develops the perceived weight of the head increases dramatically, some reports suggest a FHP of just 2 inches is the equivalent of a head that weighs 32lbs! To answer the second part of your question you should not require to wear the posture support brace permanently. As your posture improves and your muscles re-learn a natural alignment then you will need less input from the support. I hope my reply answers your questions but please feel free to ask if you require any further information.
Question from Ahmed
Hi Tim, Where can I find out for which periods of time this should be worn? eg an hour a day to start off with, after how many weeks should we wear it all day? Thank you.
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (28/03/18)
Dear Ahmed, I would recommend that you initially wear the Posture Support Brace for short periods of time. The length of time should not exceed an hour at a time for the first week or even two since your muscles and spinal joints that are responsible for your posture take time to adjust. You can wear the support for 2 or even 3 separate sessions per day in the first one or two weeks. As your posture starts to improve then you can increase the time worn. The advantage of this posture support is that you can vary the degree of posture control while wearing it. This feature not only adds to the overall comfort but also allows you to 'slacken' off the tension after a period of wearing while allowing it to still work in the background until you reset the tension a little later in the day.
Question from Leanne
I walk with crutches. Would the support hinder me using my crutches efficiently. Thank you in advance
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (18/03/18)
Dear Leanne, You haven't said which type of crutches you use but if you use the forearm/elbow crutches then I forsee no problem. If you use the underarm crutches then there is some chance that they may contact the support. If you do use the underarm crutches perhaps the best suggestion is why not try the support and if it is not compatible then we will happily refund your purchase upon return of the support. I hope that helps with your decision.
Question from Delwyn Hopkins
Could the posture support brace be worn when playing sport ie squash Thanks Delwyn Hopkins
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (15/01/18)
Dear Delwyn, Yes it could be worn when playing squash but we suggest that you wear the support before and after any sporting activity which allows for a full range of motion to be achieved for your muscles and spine during your sporting activity and then the use of the posture support can help retrain your posture after your activity when you have stretched out as part of a cool down program. We do however get some good feedback from those that wear it during activities such as golf and horse riding but for activities such as squash I would abstain from wearing whilst playing. I hope that answers your question fully
Question from Julie Rackett
Hi Iím short 5ft nothing but clearly a bit tubby measured my waist and itís 100cm so would it be worth me getting this as I think I would need the petite size but my waist seems too big for it - also does this loosen throughout the day so that you have to adjust it - i was thinking that if you werenít sitting/walking straight the brace would end up adopting that shape as itís not rigid - thanks
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (09/01/18)
Dear Julie, The support is held in place by the fastening at waist level so you should choose the size that corresponds to your waist size. We have had other people with a very similar body size to yourself and we have advised they order the standard size and in most cases this has been suitable. You do of course have a 30 day money back guarantee when shopping with us. The support is not designed to loosen whilst wearing it but if your posture starts to improve then you may tighten/adjust it to continue with further improvements. In terms of rigidity the support is flexible. It is designed to re-educate and assist your postural muscles rather than hold them fixed in one position which would ultimately be both uncomfortable and of no long term postural benefit.
Question from Mrs Pamela Griffiths
I am 83 yrs old, X-ray showed OA at base of spine with grade 1 forward slip of L4 upon L5, also narrowing of L1/2. Cannot stand comfortably with back or knees straight pain soon comes on walking. Would this posture support brace be suitable for me to help relieve pain? Many thanks Pam.
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (12/12/17)
Dear Pam, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately I do not think this posture support will help with your lower back problems. Your symptoms are potentially a combination of the degenerative changes in your lumbar spine and the grade 1 spondylolisthesis. In terms of helping your pain I would suggest a lower back specific support would be the best support option.
Question from Amy
Hi Tim I have suffered from childhood with round shoulders and now i am paying the price with a painful right shoulder and lower back. Would this help correct my round shoulders? Also I am at the end measurement of the standard waist ie Iím 110 cm will it fit without coming off? Kind regards Amy
Answer from Tim (Registred Osteopath) (22/11/17)
Hi Amy, With regard to size these come up true to size, so when measuring around your middle, which is where the fastening level is situated, check that you are within the range. If you are above 110cm I would advise not to purchase this. If you look at the video, seen at the bottom of the website product page it will help you see just where it fits and therefore hopefully allow you to get the correct measurement. With regard to your shoulders the support is designed to help correct round shoulders, but I would also add it would be worth getting your GP or other Health Care Professional to check that your right shoulder pain is being caused by your posture, ie. that you do not have two separate conditions. If you are still unsure you can always order it, try it on and if you are not happy with the fit return it to us for a refund. I hope that helps but please do not hesitate in coming back to me with any further questions.
Question from Mari
Are the shoulder strapes adjustable?
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (10/11/17)
Dear Mari, Yes. The waist fastening is adjustable for both comfort and posture support of the thoraco-lumbar area of your lower back and then you have individual adjustable control over both shoulders so that you can find the correct degree of posture control depending upon your activity. The shoulder adjustment can also be altered without removing the support.
Question from Julie
Hi Tim. I don't have brilliant posture but have never suffered back pain, although I am terribly tight and knotty around the shoulder area. Recently, I have had rotator cuff problems, caused they think, by impingement. If I can pull my shoulders back, I immediately feel some relief. Do you think this product might help or, is there something that may be better for my problem. I definitely have rounded shoulders and tend to jut my head forward, Many thanks.
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (10/11/17)
Dear Julie, Thank you for your question. The simple answer is yes. This should help because your shoulders are most likely internally rotating as they come forward,which is a very common cause of impingement. This internal rotation will in turn also overload the muscles in the back of your shoulders, particularly your rotator cuff muscles before they form the rotator cuff within the shoulder capsule.This is why they will feel knotted and tight. By encouraging your shoulders back this will help set the shoulders in a less internally rotated position which will help reduce your impingement symptoms and also take the load off of the knotty areas. I hope this is helpul but if you need any further info please feel free to ask.
Question from Bill
Hi Tim, How long each day should this item be worn?
Answer from Tim (Osteopath) (11/10/17)
Dear Bill, I would recommend that you initially wear the Posture Support Brace for short periods of time. The length of time should not exceed an hour at a time for the first week or two since your muscles and spinal joints that are responsible for your posture take time to adjust. As your posture starts to improve then you can increase the time worn. The advantage of this posture support is that you can vary the degree of posture control while wearing it. This feature not only adds to the overall comfort but also allows you to 'slacken' off the tension after a period of wearing while allowing it to still work in the background until you reset the tension a little later in the day.
Question from Lee
Hi Tim can this be worn under clothes
Answer from Tim (Osteopath) (14/09/17)
Hi Lee, Thank you for your question. Yes, this can definitely be worn under clothing.
Question from Johnny Hallas
I work in a workshop stood up all day bent forward looking down at my work and get neck,shoulder back pain would this product help ?
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (11/10/17)
Dear Jonny, The posture support will help re-train and correct your posture which in turn should help reduce or alleviate neck, shoulder and back pain. I would also advise that you assess your work station so as to further help reduce the strain on your neck and back. By this I mean it may be worth considering options to reduce the degree and/or time spent bending forward.Perhaps you could sit on a stool, increase the height of the items you are working on whilst satnding etc. Although most of us cannot achieve perfect work station ergonomics during our entire working day I personally feel that by varying your stance, as opposed to working in the same fixed position all day, these variations help reduce specific points of muscular and skeletal stress which tends to result in pain reduction and also help prevent the development of long term postural problems.
Question from Becky
Hi, I've recently had a cervical disctectomy and am trying to aid the recovery and correct my posture. Before surgery I had a severely knotted upper back and shoulders which has continued since. Can you advise if this would help? Many thanks Becky
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (28/02/18)
Dear Becky, thank you for your question and I hope that your operation has been successful so far. I would expect that your upper back and shoulders were very tight and knotted due to the neck pain you had and hence the operation. I would agree that your recovery from the operation will be assisted by improving your posture. The improvement in your posture and shoulder alignment should help rebalance the muscles in your neck, shoulders and upper back. With a more efficient posture and balanced musculature the mechanical strain should also be reduced on your spinal joints in your upper back and neck which should help reduce the pain. I would therefore expect the Posture Support Brace to be helpful in your recovery. Since I am not fully aware of all your symptoms both pre and post operatively I would therefore recommend that you check with your surgeon regarding wearing this support just to be totally sure. Keep me posted.
Question from Elaine
Does this product contain latex?
Answer from James (Customer Care) (01/08/17)
Dear Elaine, I can confirm that this product is free from latex.
Question from Owen McCann
Thinking of getting one for my wife she has very poor porture and suffers very bad back pain from neck right down to bottom of back she is on pain relief if i bought one of back brace will it help her?
Answer from Tim (Osteopath) (02/06/17)
Dear Owen, To answer your question I must assume that your wife has seen her doctor and that the diagnosis and cause of her pain can be described as mechanical. Poor posture is a leading cause of neck and back pain due to the mechanical strain on the muscles, ligaments and spinal joints. The Posture Support Brace helps to support and also retrain the postural muscles. An improved spinal alignment and a more efficient natural posture should help reduce the painful strain on your wifeís neck and back.
Question from Stephanie Bray
I'm interesting in purchasing the posture support brace and I've got a couple of questions. Firstly, what size should I buy? I'm 5'6"" tall but my waist measurement is 90cm, so should I order the small for the right height or standard to fit waist measurement? Also, does this only come in black as shown in the picture, as I would prefer a nude or white colour so it would be less noticeable when wearing. Thanks for your assistance
Answer from James (13/05/17)
Dear Stephanie, I would suggest the standard size as the waist fastening must be in plsce for the support to function correctly. The difference in the length of the back of the support between the Petite and Srandard size is approximately 85mm. We do offer a simple exchange or refund policy if you were to go ahead with the standard size but find it is not suitable for you. With regard to colour this product is currently only available in black.
