EquiFit ShouldersBack Lite ShouldersBack Lite was developed by a leading orthopedic team to assist rider's improve their posture. it offers the same upper back support as the ShouldersBack Original however the Lite is constructed with a lighter, sheer fabric that is ideal for warmer climates or seasons. Many individuals wear this, such as professional athletes, dancers, chiropractors, dental hygienists, actors and models. With consistent use ShouldersBack helps retrain your mind and muscles to remain in a correct, upright position. ShouldersBack is comfortable, breathable and does not restrict or hinder your movement. Because ShouldersBack does alter your positioning, we recommend beginning slowly and listening to your body. Slip it on for just one hour a day and, if it feels good to you, gradually increase the time to your comfort level. ShouldersBack is great for both men and women.

1) Get a very soft, thin, snug fitting t-shirt (with short sleeves) and wear it under the brace. This prevents itching and irritation and makes all the difference in the world. I found a thin scoop neck so it doesn't show under my clothes.
2) Don't tighten up the brace right away. Start off so you barely feel it at first and gradually work your way up to having it tighter. This allows your body to adjust slowly to the changes and makes it much more comfortable. The one disadvantage I have is that there is exposed velcro (the 'hook' side) exposed and against your clothes. It probably would be a good idea to wear a second thin t-shirt over the brace when you are wearing a sweater or fabric that might stick to the velcro.
I recommend it and hope you have as good of results as I did.
Based on all the great reviews I got this, and yes, it works, and great at that!
It helps you to keep your shoulders down and back, which as we know is awesome at helping with everything from neck strain, upper to mid back pain, and posture. HOWEVER, after only about six months of wear, ( about 4-6 hours per day) , the straps are fraying loose from the center stretchable material that covers your upper back...one corner under the arm has completely separated. I wear this over a very thin cotton t shirt, because it does dig into your skin and redden it, and make it sore after a while. (I learned the hard way. Just always wear a super thin cotton t shirt under this and you won't have that problem.)
So, anyway, back to the straps that are coming apart....I'm always careful to make sure that when I'm wearing this support device, that it's not unnecessarily tight, to avoid over taxing the material. But it came apart anyway. So disappointing, Now I'm debating whether or not I should just give in and reorder another one, or try a different model or company all together. This one is not tough enough for everyday wear and is poorly constructed. So beware- if you buy this, it will work, and make a difference, but plan on getting a new one sooner than you'd want to, which is ridiculous, especially at this price.
I am 5'8", 125 pounds, and I feel like there's a little extra fabric when I have it as tight as I like it (medium). So there is a visible "rumple" on my sides, just below my armpit. Because of that, I can only wear it in winter, or in the evenings at home when it's warmer out.
Function: this actually prevents me from getting headaches related to my constantly bad posture, and will save me a trip to the chiropractor if I wear it on days spent in the car or traveling in general.
I also have to say - I am a phenomenally sweaty person, and I can ruin a tshirt in as little as three wears. After over three years, this thing STILL doesn't smell like BO, despite pretty much living in my armpits when I'm wearing it. I'm confused, but grateful. It must be a side effect of the material.
I have also noticed that if I wear this too long, it can actually give me a headache - I have taken it off at the end of a day and felt my headache go away. Overall though, I use to prevent or treat posture-related neck and shoulder pain, and headaches, with pretty good efficiency. It doesn't replace a chiropractic treatment or good hot yoga session, but it keeps me going with less pain in between treatments.
