This top is really outstanding. I wear it every day now without it being uncomfortable. It helps me keep my shoulders back and my head up. Incidentally, it is also very suitable for men if you remove the pillows
I have tried to wear the sports bra size Medium. Compared to the medium posture shirt, it feels quite constricting across the front of my chest/rib cage. I'm 5'3 130 lbs with a normal bra size of 36 A or B so a medium should work. I think I will have to return the Medium for a Large which may be more comfortable.
Best solution to my shoulder slouch while riding
I have hEDS and my PT recommended the Posture bra to help keep my shoulders aligned and in place, which is certainly does! I am a 32 DDD/E cup and tried the medium size as per the sizing guidance. The band is a little loose at the back and customer service have been great about offering to switch it to a small but as the compression is already a little tight over my chest suspect I will stick with the medium!
To my esthetician besties or anyone in an industry that requires a lot from your body. I know there are some of us going home aching from all the looking down or bending for long periods of time. That is why taking the time to do things like this bra is a total game-changer! I didn’t even know these existed until recently! Do what works for you and remember we want to last in this industry we have to keep taking care of our amazing bodies!
As other reviewers mention, this is a bit difficult to get on, but once the first hook is engaged it gets much easier. The bra is quite comfortable once everything is in place, but it definitely gives a “uniboob” look. Given the front closure system, I don’t see how it could be otherwise. So bottom line: I’ll enjoy wearing this for exercising, but can’t imagine it in other situations. For the price, I had hoped it would be more versatile.
Second bra I bought because I wore out the other from so much wonderful use. I highly recommend.
I like the construction of the garment, but it is too large so had to return it for a small. I already own a black one in full length and really like it. I just thought the short version ran smaller in size.
Has saved my back/shoulder! I have something called first rib dysfunction and my PT recommended the Alignmed sport bra. It takes a bit to get used to the feeling, but it keeps my shoulders back and down and keeps me from being in constant pain! I am going to purchase the shirt, too. Thank you!
Purchased for my daughter that has had shoulder surgery. She loves it
Great posture support for all activities!
I have been having shoulder pain, and this product helps my posture and eases the pain in my shoulder. Excellent product!
At first, I didn’t think this helped but then I tried some competitors bras, and this one is by far the best
I love this posture sports bra! It truly does help me sit up straight and relieves my back pain from a lifelong bad habit of slumping! I don't like sleeping in it, tough I wish I did. I find myself wanting to put it on as soon as I get up in the morning!
I never want to wear anything else! It's helped to stabilize my body, making me realize how much of a toll EDS takes on my energy when I'm not wearing it. On my way to buy 5 more!
It is great to see a posture corrector that is much less bulky than what I have previously seen. However, price is a bit too high, it should be more affordable!
I do like the way it feels; how ever, I did go down a size when purchasing and I don’t feel and tightness or pulling where I need it. For the price, I’m kind of disappointed.
I've been searching for a posture correcting bra for a LONG time. I've got chronic back issues and was looking for relief. Finding a front closure bra that had good reviews was really a task. I ordered align med bra with doubts but was pleasantly surprised!! I'm wearing it about 4 hrs a day to start. This is working with results! I hope to order another one in the near future so I can rotate. Thank U
My thermagrams have consistently showed an area of pooled lymph on the right side of my right breast. I like to sleep on my right side but it's annoying. I got the bra to sleep in. At first, I didn't think it would work but it's quite comfortable and I can sleep on my right side again.
I do have EDS and is hard to feel good with normal Bra. I love this one.
It really does work to train the muscles in my upper back.
It's very important while riding horses to keep your upper body in alignment with your hip and heel. The alignmed sports bra helps accomplish that position. I have one for each day I ride and love it!
My doctor recommended align med because I have hEDS. I purchased the sports bra to see if it would help my posture but I've had a lot of troubles figuring out the sizing and still don't have it figured out. I started with a small and it didn't feel supportive enough, although I'm not sure how it should feel. I decided to return it after customer service said I needed an XS, which is what I'm wearing in the photo. However the XS feels too tight and caused one of my ribs to sublux the first day I tried it, which was extremely painful but I'm trying my best to make it work. The bra is definitely well made and likely very helpful with posture issues if you manage to get the right size. I'm guessing I'm between sizes. I wear a 34A bra, 28.25” under breasts, 25-27” waist, 5’7” 102lbs.
I was so skeptical of the other reviews, but figured that I've tried just about every other remedy for shoulder bursitis that I might as well as this to my toolbox. But this bra... is amazing!!! As soon as I tried it on, I felt immediate relief in my shoulder. I plan to order a few more **right now** because I plan on wearing these non-stop until I can rehab my shoulder and rebuild my core strength to keep my shoulder issues from coming back. Thank you for making such a wonderful product.
I love the way this bra feels when I wear it but it absolutely hate how it looks under a shirt. The zipper is very visible and therefore I can’t really ever were this outside of my home. Luckily I work from home so it’s not a huge deal but it’s still very annoying and something that I hope they can fix in the next revision.
I wear the bra at work under my scrubs to keep my posture in line!!
The Alignmed Sports Bra gives instant back strain relief, and instantly improves posture, which is why I ordered it at the recommendation of my Physical Therapist. I have frozen shoulders complicated in part by years of poor posture. The home exercises I've been doing improved noticeably following starting to wear the Alignmed Sports Bra.
- Instant back strain relief
- Improves posture and neck alignment
- Elastic bands cross the scapula giving added support
- Improves exercise response/strengthening
- I had issue with one elastic band scratching my scapula, I sewed in a shoulder pad with relief.
Yes, I plan to buy more so I can wear one everyday.
Wasn’t quite sure this bra would live up to its hype. Boy was I wrong. It is everything it was suppose to do and more. Love it…so does my neck and back
Best supported sports bra ever! I had a revision breast surgery and purchased this for the recovery process. Every single surgical bra id try would be uncomfortable, this bra however was perfect! The inseams are soft and don’t dig into your skin like other brands.
I now use it as my sports bra as it gives me plenty of support. Will definitely purchase more.
I am 34-36 DD 156 lb 5’8 purchased size M
I love mine. I am an icu nurse and it makes such a difference on long shifts. I have pain when I don’t wear it. My only thing is I wish you couldn’t see the zipper in the front through my shirts. Find a way to hide that zipper and I’ll never buy any other bra again.
Helps after rotator cuff repair
It is fantastic. Great support
I have the shirt and bra, and I got a bra for my daughter. I loved the shirt, but when they came out with the bra it was a game changer. It straights me up and relieves my middle back pain as well as the lower back we walk 2 miles in the morning and I come home without pain, I get the biggest size as I am big breasted and it works. The product is so well made, zipper and hooks great quality, great products.
It has changed my posture in a way I never imagined. Even when I am not wearing it, I am aware of my posture. The statements by the company are accurate and the results are felt from the moment you begin to wear their product. Love it, and will purchase more.

I have neck, back & shoulder issues & I wear the Align med bra all of the time when I am working & moving around the house & many times even when I go out. This bra really helps to support my neck & back & helps relieve some of the pain. I absolutely love it!
I love this bra! I am a hairstylist and have occupational back damage, including cervical stenosis. My orthopedist prescribed an AlignMed brace but my insurance didn’t cover it, so this was the option I could afford. It really helps me stay more mindful of my posture and alleviates my upper back pain. Most posture garments cut into the armpits but this one doesn’t and is very comfortable. Highly recommend. I am 5’ 4”, 115 lbs, 32A and I wear a small in this bra.
I have liked the bras, I own three now. I am not sure if I get the proper "pull" for my shoulders.
This is the first posture product I have used that does not dig under your arms and has gentle pressure. Comfortable to wear all day. Love it!
Great fit. I love it so much I’m buying more.
I wish they came in more sizes!
Immediately pulled my posture together. Shoulders back and tension released. Even helped to tighten my core by taking the pressure off of my shoulders and neck. It’s like wearing KT tape without the pain of repeated placement and removal but all the benefits!
I had surgery and I was recommended this product. It really helps! It has been really helpful to wear this product. Other sports bras do not work as well as this.
Very comfortable, but expected more tension in back, straps lay loosely on my back, but i can’t zip up a smaller size.
I wore the bra all afternoon/evening yesterday after receiving it and I can hardly believe how much better it makes me feel. I put it on this morning for my 3 mile walk and same result! An amazing difference in my entire upper body!
The bra has helped relieve my thoracic and rib pain by 75-80%. Actually, I wear it 24hrs because it helps control my scapular winging and muscle dysfunction. Love, love the bra.
I have hEDS and this bra was recommended to help retrain my muscles in the proper position. I love that it opens in the front as I suffer from shoulder subluxations almost daily.
Good fit but kind of hot in the summer. Would be great if there was an option with mesh for cooling.
I am 5'2", weighing about 120 lbs, and B cup. I ordered the extra small size. I wear it when I ride bikes and it has ELIMINATED the pain I always had between my shoulder blades. Really improves my posture. I am ordering 2 more!
New level unlocked! I've started wearing my alignmed bra while using the foam roller at the end of the day, and there's been so much more popping. It helps put additional pressure on my shoulders and aligns them better, so when I roll the spine is straighter.
I ride bikes and usually my back hurts at the end of my ride. But when I wear the Align me sports bar My back felt so much better after 35 miles. I plan on buying a couple more to wear every day.
I absolutely love my new Align Med bra. It's easy to put on with the hooks and zipper and is so supportive and comfortable. It's definitely uplifting and also helps to keep your shoulders back and improves posture.
This bra is wonderful to wear. It has helped me so much. I have less tension in my shoulders and neck at the end of the day. It offers great support without the use of wire! At first, I just ordered one bra; but, after wearing it for 1 day I ordered two more and I plan on ordering more in the future.
I purchased the posture bra. It fits well, definitely helps my posture. Very satisfied.
I like the support it supplies without underwires. It does not look well under tighter shirts due to the bunching in the back. I pull the back down, but there’s still bunching.
I had a knee replacement 2 years ago with residual discomfort in my R knee and hip with walking more than 3 miles. A year later I had a bad fall that required 8 months of Physical Therapy for muscle injury to my hips, knees, upper back and both shoulders.
It was after completing Physical Therapy that I was introduced to Alignmed. Their Posture support Bra and Posture Shirt provided extreme relief. The Posture Support Bra offers more posture support, and the shirt offers milder support and is a compression garment. In addition to a physical restriction, they both signal the brain to pull the shoulders back and maintain posture. This surprisingly occurs even on the few days one decides not to wear the garment. It helps me on the computer and while walking. I use one or the other almost daily with relief.
I immediately felt improvement in my neck and shoulder pain. The alignmed bra helped me realize other bras were contributing to my pain. However, if your back pain is caused by really big knockers, order a size up because although it fits around the ribs there isn't enough room for my girls and they got a little bruised.
Posture is greatly improved
Having mid- back scoliosis , the ALIGNED gently corrects my body posture. I play pickleball and after wards my back feels great and not fatigued.
Great for my shoulder injury!! Likely to avoid surgery! Helps develop and maintain good posture as I age
This has been a gamechanger for me and definitely helped with my back pain. The one design feature I'd change is the location of the front zipper. It does create a bump under shirts. If that was at the bottom under the breast it would make a lot more sense.
Dr. Amber B.
As a Physical Therapist we’re often faced with the challenge of correcting posture to reduce pain. One such condition where this becomes crucial is Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS). We’re often successful in reducing or eliminating radiating pain but unfortunately reoccurrence rates can be high, especially if the patient participates in more challenging or longer duration activities utilizing the shoulders. The AlignMed sports bra has been a critical tool to address these patients symptoms. All four of my patients in the last 6 months with TOS whom have utilized the AlignMed sports bra rave that the product allows them to perform activities pain free that would otherwise cause them discomfort. My patients believe the bra helps teach them how to properly retract and depress their scapulas outside of therapy. More amazingly, most have stated that even several hours after they remove the sports bra they’re able to reproduce or maintain that desired posture. Another recent patient, whom is a primary care physician, finds relief from the sports bra so much she wears it daily as her primary undergarment and has found it to eliminate her upper thoracic spine pain completely. As a Physical Therapist I will continue to recommend the AlignMed sports bra to patients with various upper body impairments as a tool to help them succeed in reducing and eliminating their pain.
I love this bra. I wear a 44c or 46b and bought a 2xl. This bra has hooks in the center behind the zipper. The hooks make this so much easier and more comfortable. I wear it when I’m walking and it is just enough of a reminder to keep my shoulders back and straight. If you are looking for a torture device, this is NOT for you! If you want a comfortable bra that helps remind you to correct your posture, this is the ONE!
I ordered a medium because I tried to judge by other comments but I returned it for a large. The return process was very easy and free so don’t be concerned if you’re not sure of size. I have scoliosis and tend to round my shoulders forward and this bra does help me stand straighter. It took a while to get used to it but it has become more comfortable. I would buy it again.
For size info: 138lb. 5’1” 36” bra band 80 plus years.
Love the way it feels and feels
However, after three wearing a the underarm area turned yellow (from blue)
Major bummer considering the price of the item
I received the posture bra today and it is fantastic!! Instantly less pain! It cannot get better than that!
This has really helped my slouching at work. It took a little bit to get used to, but now I’m ordering a second one!
This is a great bra! It has amazing support and it definitely helps my posture. It takes a little getting used to at first to get it on. But after that, it's a winner.
This bra has changed my life! My posture is so much better it has brought a new intensity to my workouts. It is so comfortable I forget I have it on and end up wearing it all day long. Thank you Alignable for this amazing bra!

It is helping my posture but is tight and flattens me down. I can only wear it for a few hours at a time
This is a game changer! I told my Pilates instructor about it and my friends at the gym. My posture has dramatically improved even when I take it off! It trains your muscles to work correctly. lOVE it
I absolutely love Alignmed’s posture bra. I have been using it as a post-op alternative to a regular bra to help maintain a straight posture….. and it works!
I needed a new sports bra so decided to try this first before the shirt. It is comfortable. At first I didn’t think it was that helpful…until I took it off! Then I could tell how much it helps in my shoulder area. I am 5’6” 123 lbs., cup size B-C, so I ordered size small. Well made product.
The sports bra is really helping me keep my shoulder back and aligned. I would recommend this to anyone who has back and shoulder issues.
I bought the sports bra because I previously bought the posture shirt after my first shoulder surgery 10 years ago. Then about a year ago I had to have surgery on my other shoulder (poor posture likely contributed to the rotator cuff tears that I had to have repaired). I like the posture shirt, but I wasn't wearing it anymore. Started wearing it again a month or so ago to help with posture (I work at a computer/desk, which makes posture very important). The shirt isn't always the right thing to wear, depending on what I want to wear over it - so I decided to try the bra. Unfortunately I ordered small and need to order a medium instead - after wearing it all day I noticed it had dug into my shoulders. I'm about to order the medium and I also plan to order a posture shirt that zips up the front. I can definitely recommend the shirt and I think I'll like the bra - these won't fix your posture but they'll help YOU fix your posture by leading you in the right direction and reminding you to do your part.
Bought this for my daughter. She was diagnosed with hyper mobility EDS. It definitely helps her stand up straighter. She pretty much only wears it at home. My only complaint is that some of the fabric puckers out on the back in a strange way. Other than that, it does the job
I like the posture bra. It fits well and seems to help me stand straighter. My only complaint is that you can see the zipper through my shirts. If it flipped over the top and stuck down into the bra, like a reversible jacket zipper, it would be great!

This is great for casual hanging out, but I wouldn’t run in it. Definitely helps with posture!
Once I get it on the bra is helpful and comfortable. But some idiot designed it. The front is very hard to attach. The hook and eyes are tiny and black! Very hard to see and attach. The zipper is also very hard to catch. Requires deep neck flexing to see the snaps (x4) and attach each one. Maybe some Velcro to hold the sides together to facilitate the fastening. And snaps that contrast with black. I’m amazed someone was paid to design this.
Recieved it and had to return - there was nothing to tell me where or how returns work for your products - I mailed it back to the 3pl address in Santa Ana CA as that was the only info provided - still waiting on replacement or refund or response from your team???
I am obsessed with this bra! It’s my first time feeling the difference of what a supportive bra truly feels like. It gives a slight pull back to ensure posture is always on point. Plus it looks amazing on!
I was searching for bra/sports bra with back and posture support. I’ve tried many and this one is by far the most supportive and most comfortable. I’m extremely happy with my purchase and will purchase additional. Thank you
I ride horses and love this bra. I feel the difference it gently reminds me to keep my shoulders back and have good posture
Estoy fascinada con mi sostén. Podría decir que es muy cómodo y en tan solo un mes de uso me ha ayudado a mejorar mi postura . Lo recomiendo a todas las que tienen dolor de espalda o simplemente les gustaría caminar erguidas
I have hEDS (note atrophic scar on my back) and I need to work on my posture. This helps! I also noted my gluts being more activated the days I wear the bra. I get very sweaty in it, that's my only con.
These products are amazing! Truly deliver results. It takes a few days to adjust as your muscles relearn good posture but the improvement is worth the effort!
I want to return this because of the color. It’s a dirty beige. I rather have a black support bra
This has been the most comfortable sports bra I have EVER worn!! I decided to purchase this to help me fix my posture and get a feel for how my body should be positioned. Not only do I feel my back is upright but I felt tension on my neck alleviate immediately from the sport bra supporting my back. I didn’t even realize I had neck tension until I felt my neck feel looser as I walked around. I started wearing this bra by itself while I ran errands and went to work, but I decided to use this bra for my workouts and WOW. It’s a game changer. I don’t struggle with my form like before and since this holds my back up properly, I am now activating and strengthening my weak upper back muscles correctly during my work outs. I am now more pumped up to head to the gym because of this bra alone. I will exclusively use this brand to help me align my posture. I love how it feels at the gym. Can’t wait to purchase more!!
I have always struggled with back issues due to my job, but was recommended this product by my massage therapist. I have only had the product for a little over a month and I am already seeing results. I wear it for work, but also for strenuous activities now!
I’m in pT for shoulder pain - rotator cuff issues. This has really helped me with posture and pain has lessened.
The Alignmed Posture Bra is a proven tool for improving your posture! I teach Pilates and even though I believe I am more aware than most people about posture I find myself stooping over, especially after working over a computer or at the end of a long day in my garden. The “pull back” support on my shoulders when I wear it is very noticeable and a constant reminder to re-arrange my spine and engage my abdominals to better support my frame. Try it! You won’t be disappointed!
I was recently diagnosed with hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos and suffer from constant neck, back and shoulder pain, as well as headaches and other CCI symptoms. I love the support this product provides. Seeing the difference in photographs is even more drastic than I immagined. I picked the zip-up thinking getting it on and off would be easier than the pull-on. Unfortunately, I find the clasp/zipper system very uncomfortable on my skin, as I do also have a lot of sensory sensitivities, and even seams can be a sore spot. It is helpful enough that I wear it anyway, but I have come back to order another, this time with-out the zip. Something to keep in mind for any fellow ASD shoppers.
Medium fits better than large did.
I bought this bra for my daughter who plays sports and was constantly complaining about back pain. After Wearing the bra for a few days she said her back felt so much better.
Look at the difference in my shoulders and hips. Right photo I’m wearing my posture sports bra. I can’t tell you enough how important our posture is. As an RN who takes care of surgical patients…I NEVER want to have back surgery. I’m doing every thing in my power to correct the effects that Thoracic Outlet Syndrome caused before and after my surgery 5 years ago. I definitely compensate on my left side due to the right sided muscle weakness.
Great helps with my slouching back and upper lower back issues
Very helpful with posture during the day and during exercise endeavors!
I love the fit and the fact that I can hook it in the front./ I have tried others and have to have assistance from my spouse to get them on. It aids my posture and is comfortable as any bra to wear all day. The one thing I don't like is that it makes me flatter across the front.
I have started using the sports bra for each ride and seen amazing results. While riding it is essential to have the bio feedback for scapula retraction without having restriction in movement. I highly recommend this sports bra for professionals, amateurs or youth equestrians looking for that next level of support for their riding position.
Great bra! Love it!
The sizing runs small. I used the sizing chart and ordered a small according to measurements and it’s uncomfortably tight..
