Finding the right fit
Back pain, neck strain, ongoing headaches, chronic pain. If you experience these symptoms regularly, it may point to an underlying medical problem, or bad posture. Either way, your doctor or allied healthcare professional will likely recommend a posture corrector or brace.
With so many on the market, it can be a little tricky to choose, so here are a few things to take into consideration when shopping on eBay for a posturer corrector or brace.
There are almost as many types of braces and posturer correctors as there are human body parts. They range from back or shoulder braces, to posture belts and corrector bras. Be guided by the area of your body you need the most support.
Size & adjustability
We all come in many different shapes and sizes, so it’s important to look for an adjustable brace or posture corrector, especially if are very tall or short. If you believe your weight may fluctuate rapidly in the future due to your exercise regime, perhaps consider purchasing a support in two different sizes to accommodate your changing shape.
Braces and posture correctors are available in a variety of materials such as cotton, neopreneor spandex, and leather. Spandex, lycra and neoprene models are well-priced, long-lasting and easy to care for, but not ideal if you’re sensitive to rubber. Should this be the case, you may like to consider a cotton covered brace or posture support. They breathe well, are very comfortable and machine washable, but they do absorb copious amounts of sweat, which is not great if you need to wear them for fitness purposes.
Comfort, support and ease of use
There will always be a period of adjustment when first wearing your brace or posture corrector, where all you want to do is rip it off and go back to normal. But persistence is a must if you want to achieve results. That’s why it’s vital to a select model that feels as comfortable as possible, has the right level of support for your needs (ask your health care professional), and is easy to get on and off.
