Posture Corrector Brace by PostureNOW: FAQs

How does the PostureNOW Posture Corrector work?

PostureNOW posture brace frequently asked questions

The PostureNOW posture brace is worn inside or outside your clothes, for as little as 10 minutes a day. The tension band, which goes across your back, is not meant to pull your shoulders back, but rather, it is meant to tighten as your shoulders hunch forward, reminding you to stand or sit in correct, upright posture.


How is PostureNOW different from traditional posture correction braces?

The PostureNOW posture corrective brace is unlike any other posture brace available on the market. Traditional posture braces pull the user’s shoulders back, doing all of the work for you, which actually weakens your back muscles and make your posture worse over time. With the PostureNOW posture corrector, your upper back muscles do the work of keeping you in good posture, and PostureNOW provides a gentle reminder to stay in correct posture position. Since your muscles do the work, it strengthens your upper back as it improves your posture, and over time, you’ll need to use it less and less.


How long should I wear it?

You can wear the PostureNOW posture corrector as little as 10 minutes a day, or as long as you wish. Regardless, you will see positive results. But it’s up to you, you can wear the PostureNOW posture brace for as long as is comfortable for you. If it ever becomes uncomfortable, remove it right away.


Can people with osteoporosis or other back problems use the PostureNOW posture corrector?

If you have serious back problems including, but not limited to arthritis and osteoporosis, please see a doctor before using any posture correction device or brace.


What are some of the benefits of improved posture?

Improving your posture can help you reduce back and neck pain, increase energy, improve circulation and organ function, and even make you look taller and thinner. Having good posture also makes you look and feel more confident.


Will it restrict my movement?

Because the band across the back is made of flexible elastic, the PostureNOW posture brace will not interfere with typical day-to-day activities. But do not wear the PostureNOW posture corrector when driving or operating heavy machinery.


Can you wear it inside or outside of your clothes?
