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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loriandjet Great Purchase
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by typbarb It really helps!
I habitually slump which in turn causes neck and shoulder pain. This keeps my shoulders back and relieves the pain. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MaryClaire Shoulders back- it works!!
I just had back surgery and am wearing a brace which helps my spine and keeps my posture straight, but I needed something to help hold my shoulders back, because I'm so tense and my shoulders alway hunch forward. I really like this shoulders back vest, because its lightweight, you can wear it with any bra you want and it does keep my shoulders back. I make the straps very tight and I do wear it over a tight t-shirt, because it does rub underneath your arms if you dont wear anything under it. I'm so happy I found this and took a chance on ordering it. It really does work! The reason I rated it 4 stars was because of the rubbing underneath your arm (if you DONT wear a shirt). And that can be solved-just wear something tight under it.
