What We DID NOT LIKE About The Posture Now Brace:

Even though we at Posture Brace Reviews highly recommend the Posture Now brace, it does come with a price tag. Currently, the posture brace sells for $39.95 plus shipping and handling. I don’t blame Posture Now for being proud of their posture brace, it is the most innovative on the market.

Using tension bands to correct you posture is ingenious and being able to wear it inside your clothes makes it extremely practical. It would seem that they have developed a posture brace that solve all the complaints that traditional posture braces had.

A second complaint we have is that it only comes in black. This may not matter to most, but if you are wearing a white dress or thin white shirt it would probably show through. Normal everyday clothing you would be fine. In the future, we hope that Posture Now will develop a beige and maybe even a white version of this posture brace. Maybe even some designer colors like pink for those who don’t mind showing off their posture brace.

Overall, what the Posture Now offers that other posture braces do not is the use of tension bands. By using these tension bands the Posture Now can offers a natural way to correct your posture. When you slump into bad posture, the tension bands tighten. You then are reminded that your posture is out of line and you correct it. This process is repeated as long as you wear the brace and the results are that you teach yourself good posture. After that the posture brace does not need to be worn as much, or at all. Personally, I think this natural process of correcting your posture is the best.

How To Remove The Posture Now Brace

Cons of the Posture Now Brace:

  • The product colors are limited to black (It would be nice if it came in beige or white)
  • Shipping in the past has taken longer than expected for some customers (Posture Now seems to have solved that issue)
  • Not the posture brace that people are used too (I think this is a good thing, but some people are not good with change)
  • The price (The only posture brace that uses tension bands and the price reflects it)

Pros of the Posture Now Brace:

  • It has a natural way of correcting your posture(Some posture braces force your posture, which can work but can be very uncomfortable)
  • The material used in the construction is extremely reliable and strong (Nylon will not tear with normal use and pretty much last forever)
  • Has an easy and gentle way of showing you when you slip into bad posture, that your posture needs to be corrected. It does this through the use of tension bands. (Traditional posture braces can cut off your circulation and pinch. Posture Now teaches you how to have good posture)
  • The Posture Now doesn’t need to be worn just on the outside of your clothes, but can be worn on the inside as well. (You can wear it wherever you go, probably not in the swimming pool though)
  • Comes in multiple sizes (It gives you a comfortable fit)
  • 90 day money back guarantee (Try it to see if you like it, if not get your money back)
  • If you workout it can still be worn (This is a posture brace that can pretty much be worn everywhere. Again, wearing it underneath you clothes is a nice feature)

Recommendation and Results

Overall, this is probably the best posture brace out there. It uses tension bands to naturally correct your posture and help you sit up straight. When you start to slouch the Posture Now reminds you to correct your posture. Overtime, your posture is corrected.

Recommended: Yes (This is one of the best ones out there.)

What We DID NOT LIKE About the Shoulders Back Posture Support

While this is one of the better-reviewed products, it’s still not immune to that perpetual complaint: it scratches under the armpits. When, oh when, shall we find a posture brace that is comfortable in this way? Nevermind the restrictiveness — we expect that from a brace. But do they all really have to chafe and scratch? One way to keep it from chafing is to wear it over an undershirt. When you wear it directly against you skin it will tend to chafe and scratch.

On the bright side, as we’ve mentioned earlier, this is one of the better-reviewed products. It’s thinner than many others, easy to size and put on, and it does what it’s supposed to do: it straightens the shoulders and back.

Our suggestion if you find it scratchy: wear it over a thin shirt, like these users did. Read the stories here, and here.

Or you can simply wear it for a shorter time, like these users here and here.

Cons of the ShouldersBack Posture Support

  • You need to measure properly for the correct fit. (This is not as complicated as it may sound. If you’re 24 inches or less, get Small. More than 37 inches, choose Large.)
  • Seams feel scratchy to some users. (Product can be worn over a thin shirt.)
  • Chafes under the arms if you wear it too long. (One hour a day is really all you need to develop muscle memory.)

Pros of the Shoulders Back Posture Support

  • Made of thin, lightweight material. Because you wanted posture support, not sparring protection equipment.
  • Vest-like design. Easy to wear. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to put it on.
  • Forms a smooth silhouette under your clothes. Wear it, don’t advertise it.
  • Fastened with Velcro straps for easy adjustment.
  • Comes in two colors: black and white. Matches practically any outfit.

  • Unisex style. Can be worn by both men and women — preferably not at the same time, but you bought it, so do what you want!
  • Comes in three sizes:  small, medium, and large. You get one for your children and take mommy-daughter outfit matching to a whole new level.
  • Effective even when worn for just an hour a day. Wear it when it matters most and be free the rest of the day.
  • 30-day warranty against manufacturer’s defects.

Results and Recommendation

The ShouldersBack Posture Support is a thin lightweight brace that gently straightens your shoulders while being practically invisible under your clothes. We find this to be a product that works; our only reservation is that, like many others, it chafes under the arms unless worn over a thin shirt.

Other than the scratchiness, we find little to complain about in this product, so we at Product Brace Reviews consider it highly recommended.

Relaxo Bak Review

What We DID NOT LIKE About the Relaxo-Bak Original Comfort Seat

If we were to redesign the Relaxo-Bak Original Comfort Seat, we would probably have put in some padding and covered it with a less slippery but still easy to clean material — genuine leather perhaps?

Because that’s what everyone seems to be complaining about: the product is too stiff. Look at what one user says here.

A genuine leather cover would have made it less slippery, more comfortable, and cooler on the skin as well.

Admittedly, our design would add a few (or a lot of) dollars to the price. Still, it’s a premium that some people may be willing to pay for. Other products with cushioning could easily cost twice as much, as this user says here.

In fact, Relaxo-Bak Original Comfort Seat has released a deluxe version, which does feature and easy-to-wipe closed-cell foam: The Relaxo-Bak Deluxe. And yes, it does cost twice as much. See the what the user of the newer version says here.

Of course, as far as durability is concerned, nothing beats pure, hard, unadulterated plastic. The Relaxo-Bak as it is right now could last for as long as — well, you’d be gone long before it disintegrates, and it won’t take an environmentalist to tell you that.

We just don’t know how interested your grandkids would be to find out this is part of their inheritance. If their backs hurt too, they might be overjoyed about it.

Why? Because despite the slipperiness and stiffness of this product, you will find that it works. We begrudgingly admit that the manufacturers have come up with a good, ergonomic design despite the fact that they didn’t hire us as consultants. (If they did, the product would have been covered in foam and soft leather, remember?)

And how do you know it works? Listen to what its users say here and here.

Cons of the Relaxo-Bak Original Comfort Seat

  • No cushioning. Stiff. Can be slippery. (Don’t wear silk bottoms with this. Try non-slippery materials such as jeans and cotton.)
  • Limited colors. Sorry, no hot pink or mustard yellow available.

Pros of the Relaxo-Bak Original Comfort Seat

The Relaxo Bak conforms to bodies of all shapes and sizes!  No silly measurements or embarrassing weight requirements.  It is U.S. Patented and FDA certified, meaning even your doctor might try and swipe your Relaxo Bak if you’re not careful!  The Relaxo Bak manufacturers have been providing quality products and similar remedies since 1963… that’s a long time!  A clinical study, using more than 300 persons, was conducted using the Relaxo Bak with very favorable remarks and findings.  Over One-Million satisfied users and the customers that have tried The Relaxo Bak exclaim: “The Relaxo Bak helped after sitting on a hard surface.  The normal searing pain that ensues when I stand up was gone!”

  • One size fits all bodies.  So breathe a sigh of relief — you don’t need to reveal your size and weight to anybody just to purchase this product.
  • One size fits all seats too. You can use it with your computer chair, dining chair, armchair, etc.
  • Easy to wash. Just put it under running water and wipe it dry.
  • Comes in three colors:  black, tan, and gray. Whatever your home’s color motif is, you can find a Relaxo-Bak color to blend with it.
  • Portable. Easy to carry around with you. Use it at home, bring it to the office, use it in your car, on an airplane, at the bus, or at a ball game.
  • Only $17.95!  Enough said.  In an economy where every dollar counts, you can get immediate comfort at an affordable price.
  • Prescribed by doctors and chiropractors. Ask your doctor about it today.
  • Over one million satisfied users. One million people can’t be all wrong, could they?

Results and Recommendation

The Relaxo-Bak is a practical alternative to posture corrective braces if your main trouble is back pain that comes when you sit for long periods of time. The Relaxo Bak is cheap and offers a reliable product, but it can be stiff and slippery, unlike the padded Relaxo-Bak Deluxe.

So we at Posture Brace Reviews do recommend this product because it works and costs less than $20. But if price is not your concern, we would say look elsewhere for something more comfortable, like the Backjoy posture seat.
