Product Description

Brand New Style

The essential posture support is just what you've been looking for to help correct those hunching, rounded shoulders.

Bad Backs posture improving supportive shoulder brace is also a dream to keep clean ( just throw it in the washing machine on gentle wash), it's soft and padded where it counts for added comfort and is almost invisible under your clothes!

This lightweight postural device is designed to assist with correcting round shoulders, and is comfortable and gentle enough for everyday use thanks to its ingenious Australian design.

A gentle but firm shoulder support brace, it allows the shoulders and arms to swing and move freely a very important requirement when you are sitting at your computer and need to reach for files and documents, for physical labourers working on a building site, relaxing watching TV or even working out in the gym! You will feel the brace really work its magic when your shoulders are relaxed (most of the time for most of us) and it is then that you will feel them pulled back into the improved postural position, keeping your shoulders back and with the end result being that you sit straighter and stand taller!

Many people suffer from round shoulder syndrome without even realising until its too late - hunching forward, your shoulders tense, until those painful neck tension and muscle aches start... Our supportive shoulder brace works especially well for those times when you can feel yourself getting tired and starting to 'droop' and 'slouch'. The shoulder brace is also appropriate for use as an all day shoulder support to correct rounded shoulder syndrome caused by unbalanced and/or excessive muscle spasm or contractions.

How are you sitting at your computer right now? Do you have to make a conscious effort to keep your shoulders back?

The shoulder support is made of a unique elastic material that is padded where it counts for a soft, luxurious texture against your skin especially under your arms where other braces can rub. This means that the brace can be applied directly on bare skin and worn with comfort under clothes (did we mention this shoulder brace is invisible under clothes?).


  1. Padded straps under the armpits, giving you greater comfort.
  2. Comes in two parts, left and right.
  3. An adjustable fastening tape that allows for easier fitting and comfort.
  4. It is invisible and inconspicuous when worn under clothes.
  5. The shoulder brace allows unrestricted movement, delivering all day comfort,
  6. AND is completely washable, and therefore more hygienic than other shoulder braces available.



This supportive shoulder brace is available in an extensive size range to suit all body types ranging from Small, Medium, Large, X Large and XX Large. To work out your size, measure full 360 degrees, around the scapula, under the arms (see picture).

Review by:
I measured myself according to the guidelines and yet this product is very tight around my stomach. Why does it apply force there? It seems completely unnecessary and if it's over my diaphram it makes it hard to breath. From the product description it seemed like this product was designed to just pull my shoulders back, not apply compression around my waist. What a shame! I was looking forward to using this. One thing I did notice is that the website instructions don't mention that you should expand your chest fully when taking the measurement, whereas the packaging instructions tell you to do that, so perhaps I should have gone for the XXL rather than the XL, but of course this is not my fault. I notice that all the other reviews are high 5-star ones, so I hope these reviews don't get filtered, surely that's illegal. Also, unrelatedly, it looks like the woman on the packaging is actually wearing the brace incorrectly - assuming the soft padding is meant to go under your arms. She's got the soft padding part going over her back (I tried that and it hurts my under arms). (Posted on 18/01/2019)

This back brace definitely helped to pull my shoulders back and straighten my posture, and my posture improved when I wore it. However after prolong hours of wearing it, the straps (although fabric), started cutting into my skin under the arm section and around my waist. It would be fine if you wore it over a shirt. I also noted that after a while of not wearing it, I started slouching again, so it is only effective, if you train your body to not slouch, even when not wearing the brace. (Posted on 9/03/2018)

"I work on the computer for long hours and I have started slouching. I'm very young to start doing that! The shoulder brace certainly met my expectations and now provides me with great support." (Posted on 6/07/2016)

"I found the shoulder brace very comfortable and not bulky like so many other braces I had researched and tried. The shopping process with Bad Backs was user-friendly and secure, especially considering this was my first international purchase. I'd definitely purchase again from Bad Backs because of the quality products and good customer service." (Posted on 6/07/2016)

"I have shoulder pain as a result of postural problems, linked to driving. I bought the essential shoulder brace and have been wearing it frequently while working. I have had an excellent response, as the days when the brace is on I have no pain or discomfort. If you have a bad back and a looking for a real solution that in the long term will save you time and money try bad backs." (Posted on 6/07/2016)

I was noticing a "hunch" within my shoulders, also experiencing some pain as a result. I was a little unsure how the brace was going to work but now I am used to it and am definitely very happy with it! (Posted on 5/07/2016)
