Found 22nd Jan
Was on the look out, for a posture corrector, to help alleviate an issue I have with my upper back. This corrector, is available for £8.99, for the 70 - 110 version. Reviews seem very positive, highlighting that it is both effective, as well as comfortable.
Importantly, it is also not too bulky, so shouldn't be noticeable under clothing (if that is a concern).

Someone voting cold, without even a reason is in my opinion, quite rude. …Someone voting cold, without even a reason is in my opinion, quite rude. If a better deal is available, at least take the time, to post.


Absolute nonsense, people have the right to vote either way based on if they think it's a good deal or not, why do you need an explanation? People are allowed to have a different opinion to yours.

I don't think, they are applicable, for anyone with an on-going injury, but would be useful to help with posture and therefore may avoid future problems.

Should have mine, within the next 2 days, so can report back then. Problem is, reduced price, may not be available then.
As it's Amazon, I'm happy to purchase, as I can return if I don't feel it's fit for purpose.
IMO most people on the street using their phones while walking should use of these! It's so annoying when all you see is people not looking looking where they're going with their heads buried in their phones. Really bad posture!

Going to give it a go, looking at amazon reviews (although taken with a grain of salt) it seems promising. Thanks for posting

Only the smaller size at this price unfortunately.
Only 2 sizes. Being low build I doubt it will fit

This sort doesn't work, I've tried them. I'm not particularly round shouldered nor an abnormal shape. But these ride up, you need something round the waist to pull them down. There are others which do have another strap round the waist

I voted cold. My doctor said these are bad for you. They put pressure on muscles and nerves around the front of your arms/chest which could cause more troubles.

It's the same for wearing heavy rack sacks.

Someone mentioned going a kensio tape route. Where you tape your shoulder blades back and it's less pressure on your frontal joints.

Get in a habbit of standing against a wall, shoulders, head, bum, elbows and heels against the wall.
Hands cross and placed on your chest.

Stand like this for 5 minutes a few times a day. It'll soon help you get into the routine of standing straight.

I can't really comment on these products. I had something similar and it was uncomfortable. Didn't seem to help much.
I had one of these, as I had thoracic outlet syndrome. I would strongly recommend you seek advise before getting one of these.
There are plenty of exercises and Youtube videos out there that can fix posture over time.

Not only that, these really dug in under my arms.

I've been to the gym a lot (I mean 5 times or more a week) It really doesn't help IMO if your natural posture is a bit round shouldered

With some notable exceptions round shoulders are not particularly due to someone's innate 'natural posture'. More likely what you do during the day that's sculpted your posture. You can go to the gym 7 nights a week if you like and actually make the problem worse. Depends what you are working. You might need guidance from a physio. My physio has his own mini gym and teaches exercises and stretches which can be incorporated into your own routine.
