When to Wear a Posture Bra

With a design intended to relieve stress and improve posture, these bras are great to wear:

  • At work
  • Anytime you'll be standing for a long period of time
  • When you're doing something at a work station and you find yourself bending over or slouching (cooking, sewing, crafting, helping the kids with homework - any time you're at a work station and want to prevent slouching)

Because posture bra designs are a bit more robust, heavy-duty and restrictive, they may not be great to wear when:

  • Doing yoga or Pilates
  • Working out
  • Relaxing at home
  • Doing something that requires you to bend, such as gardening

Posture bras are great for certain applications, but they're not appropriate for all activities.
