  How does it work? The garments gently pull the shoulders back, which in turn reduces/enhances the anatomical alignment of the spine, scapula, shoulder and arm and improves forward head and shoulder posture. The user is consciously aware of improved posture while the largely unconscious process of muscle balance and body alignment is enforced during any daily activity; including sleep. Over time the user can improve and maintain good posture by wearing the garments intermittently as there is a carry-over effect of good posture when not being worn.[...]
