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.

I bought this for my daughter she shows in horses. She picked up a bad habit from her last trainer which was slouching on her horse and then to her everyday walking. I bought this for her for Christmas and she just tried it for the first time yesterday and really liked it and thought it was very comfortable. I held off buying one for me because I have always been a sloucher since childhood and wanted to wait and see what the quality was first and now I'm getting ready to order one now.

I had severe pain in my shoulder and my neck and my doctor could not figure out what was wrong (bursitis, rotator cuff injury, tendinitis). I went to the chiropractor for temporary relief then went to the acupuncturist which helped a little. But, unfortunately the pain was still there. So, I purchased this item and I wear it almost every day. I still have some pain but only when I don't have it on. My doctor still says I need an MRI -- they think I actually have a pinched nerve or a dislocated disk in my neck but this item actually reduced my pain to almost nothing and I have fewer headaches. It is so good for posture. The only thing I would recommend -- put heavy moisturizing cream on your skin (near your arm pits) prior to putting it on -- and wear a layer before wearing this (i.e. moisturizer cream, shirt to cover arm pits and then place item on. I would recommend this to anyone who has really bad posture. It also helped me out in the gym when lifting weights.
