13 Best Posture Correctors That Work

With many of our lives spent in sedentary, it’s not much of a surprise that many of us suffer from poor posture. Because of all of our habits, there has been a whole industry created in order to support these needs — supports to aid us in correcting our posture.

Posture is important, however, there are all kinds of different posture correctors out there, and not all of them work. Some are agonizing or otherwise cumbersome to deal with. Others may not seem to be working at all in some situations.

To ensure that you don’t fall into the same trap, we’ve gone out and did some research into posture correctors that actually work and have created this list for you.

What Determines the Best Posture Correctors?

When looking at the various posture correctors, we considered a few criteria in our search. As a side note, because so many posture correctors out there haven’t been tested and everyone’s posture is different, we recommend talking to your doctors first before giving any of these a try:

  • Realigns your body – A posture corrector doesn’t only correct posture but rather realigns your body. From spine to joints, the idea is to relieve the aches and pains.
  • Not too punishing – You’re bound to experience pain at first as you put on a posture corrector and immediately go into your default posture. That being said, the pain should be gradual as you begin to adjust yourself over time
  • Easy to wear – You have traditional straps to even a few bras and back bands. Because there is a variety of them, you want to make sure that wearing one of them isn’t going to be complicated or require a lot of work to put on.
  • Can easily be hidden – While some of these can be worn over clothing, some people may prefer to keep these hidden. In those circumstances, these posture correctors are able to be hidden underneath your clothing easily.

Best Overall – Marakym

    Looking for the best overall posture corrector look no further than the Marakym brand. They use neoprene material making it comfortable and easy to slip on. The reason this posture corrector is great overall is thanks to the posture brace. It ensures alignment and stability without being too punishing.

    It’s this aspect where the material shines since neoprene is a strong and yet breathable material. It makes it comfortable for both men and women to wear them under or on top of clothing.

    Best Design – Evoke Pro

      One of the big complications with posture correctors is making sure you can get them on properly. Design plays such a huge factor in these circumstances. From our research, the best one we found were the ones from Evoke Pro. This low profile design is simple. All you need to do is adjust the velcro straps.

      We recommend wearing this over a top as many people have complained about armpit chafing. Furthermore, the material is durable but it might cause skin irritation for some.

      Best Budget – Bowtus

        For those on a strict budget, a solid option to make the most of your money is the posture corrector from Bowtus. There are two ways you can wear this: either strap this to your back or if you’re sitting for long periods of time, you can strap these to your knees and waist. No other posture corrector does anything like this.

        Aside from that, the material is high quality and the back brace is long enough to ensure the straps don’t dig into your armpits.

        Best For Back Pain – FlexGuard

          For those suffering specifically from back pain, you may want to consider getting a posture corrector for your entire back. The back brace posture corrector from FlexGuard Support is very helpful in this since it covers lower and upper back for both men and women.

          It’s also made neoprene which makes it durable, flexible and comfortable. It also comes in such a large size that it can fit on any person without causing too much discomfort.

          Alternative For Back Pain – Copper Fit

            Another option for those suffering from back pain is having a posture corrector that’s focusing on the lower back. One option that we found was the Copper Fit ICE Compression back brace. Unlike other products on this list, it’s made of 86% polyester and 14% spandex. This makes it highly flexible for men and women.

            The other aspect about it is that it serves as a cooling pad too. Both the compression and cooling aspects allow relief and support for the aches and pains. It covers muscle stiffness and soreness and promotes circulation too for fast recovery.

            Best For Office – Upright

              While all of these back braces are suitable for office use, not everyone wants to be seeing them. Furthermore keeping them underneath a shirt can be uncomfortable for you as well since the straps can irritate skin. In these circumstances, a small posture corrector is in order.

              One product that fits the bill is from Upright GO Original. This device is small and strapless, making it easy for you to place it under your clothes. Also since it’s small it doesn’t cause any skin irritation.

              In terms of function, this device is connected to an app that you can use to train yourself to sit upright. This device uses technology unlike other posture correctors to help you with correcting your posture. On top of that it provides you with a personalized training program that issues daily goals to improve your posture little by little. You even get statistics to get exact measurements and feedback.

              Best Bra Posture Corrector – Leonisa

                Bras were originally designed to help with posture though as many of us can relate to, bras can feel restrictive and uncomfortable. Thankfully you’re not going to run into this issue with this bra at all. It’s made of 88% polyamide and 12% elastane making it comfortable while also gently pulling you into a proper posture. It’s actually so comfortable you can use this as everyday wear and not realize you have it on.

                Best For Upper Body Support – Vokka

                      Best For Lumbar Support For Men – Aspen

                        Lumbar support is another way of helping with poor posture. After all, a stronger lower back can pick up the slack for the upper back. One, in particular, we found that was great for men was the one from Aspen.

                        Advertising

                        The main selling point of this product is that the braces are inelastic. This helps with improving trunk stability which is key in relieving back pain. You can also find it easier for the brace to fit you thanks to the dual pull tabs. This also allows you to focus on compressing certain parts of your lower back. All the while, the brace is comfortable for you to wear.

                          Best User-Friendly Supporter – Andego

                            The final product we’ll review is the one from Andego. It focuses on the back and boasts easy adjustments, conceals under clothes well, can be adjusted for children as well, and slips on easily. It also comes with additional straps for comfort and is very breathable, an overall great product for anyone to use.

                            Bottom Line

                            With so many posture correctors in the market, it can be difficult to find quality products.

                            10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

                            Advertising
                            10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

                            A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

                            To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

                            1. Camping

                            A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

                            Advertising

                            2. Staycation

                            You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

                            3. Island Getaway

                            People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

                            4. Fancy Resort

                            Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

                            Advertising

                            5. Road Trip

                            The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

                            6. Charter a Boat

                            If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

                            7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

                            If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

                            Advertising

                            8. Themed Retreats

                            There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

                            9. Working Honeymoon

                            Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

                            10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

                            Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
