After seeing far too many photos of myself with horrible posture—my shoulders fully rounded over, my stomach somehow pushed forward while my hips are pushed back—I wonder why anyone has ever voluntarily spoken to me in public. But I decided to do something about it. I’ve tested braces, shirts, a yoga strap, and more to figure out what can help fix my posture. Here are the best posture correctors we’ve tried.
None of these options will fix your problems overnight. Start using them 10 to 20 minutes a day, and add time as you go on (and listen to the product’s directions). If you have severe back pain, talk to your primary care provider before buying anything.
Updated September 2020: We’ve added an additional shoulder brace and Kinflyte’s posture bras and shirts.
