A posture bra, sometimes called posture brace, is bra
intended to keep the spine in proper alignment, promoting good posture and
possibly reducing pain.

in the back, as well as extra support in the front and sides to help carry some

material in the back, front, and sides, often has much wider shoulder straps

wear. The majority of reviewers support this claim, reiterating that, for everyday
wear, posture bras are very durable and comfortable, but not the most
flattering bras for tight outfits or night out.

get based on activity level and body type. One type, called longline design, is
long enough to provide support to the entire torso to help maintain good

for women with larger breasts who may need more support. An athletic posture
bra would be recommended for those who regularly engage in physical activity.
Third kind of posture bra is made to closely resemble normal bra, which may be
the most comfortable for those transitioning from normal bra to posture bra.
