The Right Bras for Curvature of the Spine, Scoliosis
Curvature of the spine is a form of Scoliosis. There can also be symptoms of pain and other complications. This condition can be mild and can also be serious. Scoliosis cannot be cured by exercise and good posture. However for mild and moderate spinal curvature, you can feel and look better with exercise and wearing the right style and properly fitting bra. Finding the right bra is a common problem for women suffering from curvature of the spine. It seems that regular bras from stores never fit right, so it becomes very difficult to find something that you can wear the whole day and still feel comfortable.
Bra straps falling off from shoulders is an issue to women with spinal curvature, because one shoulder tends to be lower than the other. The solution to this is buying a bra that has U back design or racer back straps. It does not necessarily have to be a sports bra, but the back of the straps of these bras look like a letter “U” or “Y”. Even if your right shoulder is one to two inches lower than your left, the straps won’t fall off. They are easy to find in almost every specialty stores.
If you can’t find the type of bras mentioned in the above, then perhaps you should buy a bra with straps that are sewn close to each other. If this and all else fails, you can try looking for a small strap that will hold the two bra straps together when attached. This small strap should run parallel to the back straps of your bra, so they won’t fall off.
Another issue faced by women with spinal curvature is when the band rides up their backs. If you are one of these women, don’t worry, because it takes only the right bra type to solve your problem. Get a bra that offers maximum support, not only at the front, but also at the back. The wide back bands will keep your back straight and your head high. Such features can be found in posture bras and long line bras. The posture bras will control your posture. The long line bras go down to your waist and provide support and comfort to your back. They will stay in place even if they are worn for a long period of time.
