I'm struggling with shoulder pain and have been sleeping in the shoulders/back. It is effective in keeping my shoulder from rolling forward and has helped to cut the morning pain.

This wasn't enough for me. I wish I had read the read the reviews. this serves to 'remind' you to sit up straight, but I need something to actually do it for me. I hope the Cincher back can provide that. I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me get the sizing right. I'm a 5'8' 140lb guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamie Even though I cannot wear it all day because it is uncomfortable around the underarms, I love what Shoulders Back has done for me. From the 1st day after only a few hours, I took the brace off and noticed my posture improved. And I have no more neck and shoulder pain. I sit and type on a keyboard all day and when I went to my chiropractor and told him I had no pain for the first time ever, he was impressed. He says it's retraining my muscles and he noted that the muscles in my neck and shoulders were more tender than before which indicates the correction.
Thank you, Gaiam, for providing yet another products that's effective and one I love. I'll be purchasing another so I can rotate between two.
P.S. Also... even though the laundering instructions indicate to hand wash, I've been washing it with my regular laundry and letting it air dry. It comes out beautiful.

It did help a ton with alignment, but if it came into contact anywhere with my skin it left red marks. The velcro rubbed pretty bad if you weren't completely covered by clothing between you and the brace. Sad, because it would have been great otherwise! I had to return it.

Love it!!! I have been having neck pain for 2 years now. I have tried, or I am currently doing, yoga, massage, acupunture, physical therapy for my neck pain. Continued use of the computer and my posture (didn't know my posture was poor, but it must be), aggravate my neck pain. I wear the brace whenever I can. It is the best help I have had so far. It constantly reminds me to throw my shoulders back. I wear it over a shirt so the velcro doesn't irriate my skin. It feels like I am wearing a bra and a sports bra. So not the most comfortable...but definately better than beng in pain. I feel it is realy helping me!
