Rated 4 out of 5 by Fibrokat Fibromyalgia Fighter
I purchased this hoping to improve my posture. What I got was much better. I found I no longer had pain in my shoulders or neck. For someone with fibromyalgia that is a VERY big deal. When I told my chiropractor I was using this he was excited for me, especially since it helps correct my forward head posture by helping me stand up straight.

I don't love this thing. It's not very comfortable at all (the straps really dig into my underarms and I'm fairly average in size - 5'6 125lbs) plus, it's incredibly overpriced. My girlfriend has the exact same brace and she paid only $29.99. I'd say skip it and shop around. Find one that you can really wear throughout the day. I wanted mine to help my posture while on the computer, but it's so uncomfortable that I find myself never wanting to put it on.

while great in theory, even over an undershirt or longsleeve, these velcro straps still cut into your skin. i've chosen little times of day to wear it and can't last longer than an hour or so. is this still effective? at least it reminds me to think of my posture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by one4review Helpful, well-designed product
Upper back discomfort during long hours at the computer prompted me to try the shoulders back product. It works well, relieving tension and soreness in my upper back and neck area. The product is well-designed, with good materials and velcro adjustable straps. I recommend wearing a fitted, lightweight cotton t-shirt underneath and adjusting the tightness/angle of the shoulder straps carefully to avoid possible discomfort in the underarm area. Worn under a sweater, it doesn't show.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AlexandraB Does what I hoped it would
I have scoliosis and my right shoulder slopes forward slightly. I got this and tightened the right side more than the left and it works just fine. It does pinch the armpits a little bit but it's about as comfortable as a brace like this can get. Works over or under clothing, and I like that it's fully adjustable. Helps me stand up straight on the treadmill.
