relieved my upper back pain, ordering a second one
I bought this for my mom. She loves it and said it really gives her the support she needs
Have been wearing it for 2 weeks. I had back surgery Dec. 1 and I feel more comfortable. My restrictions are BLT no bending, Lifting, twisting.
It keep me supported.
The posture shirt was recommended by my physical therapist and it really does work the upper back muscles. At 5'3" and 130 lbs, the medium fits me well but I wish It didn't have to be so long. I plan on trying the sports bra next.
This really works. It's very comfortable to wear and adjusts my posture to a better position which has relieved tendinitis in my shoulder.
It was a little expensive, but it came quickly and fit as advertised. I felt some relief from my chronic back pain immediately. The only thing I’m not crazy about is the neckline of the garment. It shows with most of my tops unless I wear a turtle neck. I’m 5’9”, 160 lbs and 36DD bra size and I got the large zipper garment. I can’t imagine trying to pull this down over my head. Glad I got the zipper version.
A physical therapist recommended this product and it helps so much with symptoms from Ehlers-Danlos and fibromyalgia! I normally wear a medium top and bought a small for this shirt
Is tight but comfortable. Helps tremendously with upper back/ shoulder issues.
I’m really happy I decided to try this! I have a mid-back injury, right below the bra strap area. This shirt has allowed me to be more active, it gives me a feeling of stability and safety as I paint a room, do yoga, or just make my way through the day. It has given the injured area a chance to heal more deeply, so I feel more confident even when I’m not wearing it.
It was tighter than I expected (this is the Medium, and I’m 36 bust, 30 waist), but it quickly came to feel like a second skin. I will probably invest in a Large at some point, as I had lost weight with illness just before buying it. I’m so grateful that it can go in the wash.
Wonderful posture shirt
Wonderful posture shirt! Helping me with my posture
Ordered sm and med quite a size difference tighter is better.
Wore my shirt hiking in the Dolomites. My back never bothered me. Great product
Using the taping shirt has helped with my awareness of my posture and alignment and reduces the pain through my shoulders and neck whilst studying.
Thinking of ordering one in white.
I called for size assistance because I was unsure whether to get an xs or small. I was advised to get an xs. Way too tight. So I got a small. I feel that the small is way too snug too but I wear it sometimes. I feel that it compresses too much in my rib area. I gave the person my measurements. 34 chest, 106 weight. My problem is that when I'm home, I mostly sit at the computer, watch tv or work on a hobby. I feel that it feels best when I'm standing up. My hobby of birding is outdoors and it's way too hot to wear the shirt. And I can't see me wearing it under a blouse when I'm out.
My Physiatrist recommended that I use your zipper shirt because I injured my back and I was in a lot of pain. A few weeks later we talked by tele-health, and she asked how I was doing and when I told her my back was 90% better. And she started to cry, she was overwhelmed. Now, a few weeks later without the shirt on I can stand up straight without a problem. But I still wear my shirt!
It’s really great tool for correcting posture.
It works! I will be buying another product.
Love both zipper and pullover t-shirt. even bought the taped vest. will be ordering again!!
The posture shirt is great. I have hypermobility of both shoulders and good posture has helped my healing and treatment. The zipper is visible in certain tops, but it’s easy to put on with my shoulder issue and fits well. I plan to get the sports bra next. Highly recommend!
I either pulled a muscle or even more likely pinched a nerve that was causing excruciating pain and numbness from my shoulder down to my fingers. After about 10 days with little to no improvement, I went to see a neurologist. He gave me some exercises to work my neck and shoulders that all focused on good posture. That's when I remembered hearing about a posture shirt and decided to get one. Everyone was so great and helpful. They sized me up and after a few days of wearing the posture shirt, I am so happy and relieved to report that I'm well on my way to recovering. I am beyond thankful for your amazing products!
The shirt is definitely helpful in holding my shoulders back. However, I needed a larger size for the bust and it wasn’t available. I kept and use. The one ordered even though it flattens my bust.
It has really helped with my shoulder pain I was experiencing
I love how it instantly fixes my posture. By the end of the day my muscles are tired, which means this shirt is doing it doing its job. The only problem I found is the type of material that makes me sweat more than normal. Since I wear it all day, I would like for the shirts to come with a cotton cover on the underarm (armpit) section.
Very pleased with the shirt. My physical therapist can see a difference in my posture already. Thinking about ordering the bra next!
I am 78 years old and never gave a review. This shirt is my life saver for playing tennis without pain. Love it and would recommend it to anyone with back problems. I am 5.3 and 132 lbs and the medium fits perfect.
I now need another one in white.
Thank you for a great product
Perfect support shirt for me with the zippered front because shoulder issue. Would be even better with more color choices!
Fits great. I’m 5’0 tall, 115 pounds, size small. Only problem is the white color. Need to wash it after each use. For me it was daily.
Fits tight like it should.
One day I forgot to wash it, it stained yellow under the arm and it’s never the same.
I could not get that same white color anymore. My advice buy black.
Bought a white color zipper posture shirt. Fits well. Only problem is it’s white. You have to wash it every time you wear it, otherwise you will have yellow color under the armpit area after a couple of days if you don’t wash.
Customer service can’t do anything about it.
My advise is buy any color but white.
5'8", currently 150#, 34A. I usually wear a small, so that's what I ordered. I've gained weight recently due to pain from hypermobility, so I probably could/should have gotten a medium, but I would probably lose some support with a looser fit. Snug but comfy, not super breathable. Rides up and rubs a bit after a full day of wear, so I'll probably get a second one in medium. My back does feel better and fewer rib subluxations with wear.
had some issues getting proper fit. AlignMed was TREMENDOUS help and very satisfied. Love it.
I am already feeling the difference in my posture by wearing this and it's very comfortable. I will be purchasing another one that is a pullover so that I will have all I need to use under my clothing.
Like the way shirt helps back and lower back! Didn’t find it helped my upper part of my back and shoulders! I do have less lower and middle back pain.
I’ve purchased both the bra and the corset-like model in S and M. The S is quite tight - can’t wear it all day and the M is loose, doesn’t engage my shoulders or back. Have any other customers had this problem? I wish there was a small-and-a-half!
I have been using this for over one month. I am a nurse for over 30 years and have chronic back pain, this has completely alleviated the burning pain I have at the end of most days, as well my overall muscle pain is greatly reduced. I am going to order another shirt as I have been wearing this shirt 5 days a week. Highly recommend. For ladies, I ordered a medium shirt and have bust circumference of 35".
So far so good. Fits very tight. I hope it isn't too tight. I have the overhead T-shirt and love that one. This one should be easier to get in and out of.
I love this zip-up top so much I bought another one. It is very comfortable. I think it's designed to wear another top on top or a jacket as I would never wear it with a pair of pants. The weather is cool now where I live so I just put on a jacket or sweatshirt over it. But come summer I guess I won't be able to wear it because it's way too hot in Texas to layer tops.
Also, unfortunately, my top started unraveling at the bottom. I'm sure that's not normal and that I just got one that wasn't as well made like the rest. Overall this top is so comfortable and I feel it helps keep my posture straight.
I have tried several different compression/posture correctors and this by far has worked the best. The front zip makes it much easier to put on and take off. At first I thought it wasn’t tight enough but then could feel it gently supporting my shoulders and spine. This design does not cause irritation/soreness under my arms like other supports. I work 12 hour days as a server and my mid back and shoulder pain has been drastically decreased.
I love this product!
Had to order a large recently because the XL was too big!
I lost about 25 lbs in Sept & Oct - hurt my back Sept 23 and spent next 38 days in bed, in too much agony to move! Didn’t eat much either, so now back down to normal size that I’ve been since 1958!

It's comfortable and helps posture a lot, but I'm disappointed in the quality. Something that expensive should have finished stitching held in place, not loose threads hanging all over. The manufacturer should teach basic sewing skills and enforce quality control or lower the price by three-fourths.
I have 2 of the zipper tops. It is very helpful in holding up shoulders. It doesn’t hold me rigid, but makes slouching harder and uncomfortable. I would have preferred a wider cut across the shoulders to allow for more open blouses and dresses. Also, it rides up under the arms.
However, I like it.
I am diagnosed with hEDS and Stiff Person Syndrome and suffer from severe spastic episodes. The alignmed zipper shirt is great to support my posture and giving me a hug that helps prevent the episodes. Without the zipper I would not be able to get the pullover on related to my upper body challenges. It protects & supports my trigger areas which are my upper back and rib cage. I typically wear them when I expect a long day; traveling, flying, appointments and during PT sessions.
Love it. I have curb back and it cause me back pain and tired during working. Sitting 10 hours front of computer. When wear this alignment shirt it really help me and I m
Happy with this product
When I’m going to be on my feet all day, my Alignmed shirt helps me keep my posture in check and cuts down on the fatigue!
I have EDS and experience major back and shoulder pain. I was introduced to these posture shirts years ago by my physical therapist and have been wearing them since. They reduce my back pain greatly and I am able to stand longer and do more things. I cannot say enough good things about them, they really help me out.
Unfortunately, the bottom of the posture shirt does not stay put... it rolls up. I don't think this style works for people with curves. I ended up buying a sports-bra style through intelliskin which stays in place.
This product helps to hold me up a little bit better. I use it everyday!
This shirt has been so Amazing in helping my scapula get out of pain. I am a Dental Hygienist, and I was just about at the point where I would have to retire, or have an operation. Physical Therapy helps, but my new shirt is amazing!!! I have worn it everyday since I got it. I wash it out at night and air dry it overnight, and it is good to go by morning. I have ordered a second one, and I likely will get more in time.
AGAIN, wearing this shirt has truly helped me to be able to continue to work, and my pain levels are so much better. I am beyond Grateful for this product!
I tell everyone about this! It helps me with my backpain especially if I am standing on concrete!
I am amazed at the progress I have made with better posture with this vest. I still have a way to go but this keeps me cognizant of my posture at all times. I love it!
I have just ordered the zipper shirt in black. I wear the white shirt part of every day. I want information from you specifically about the spinal support please. Thank you
I had to lie down to force the zipper to hold. The zipper enclosure is short so it pops out. Once I had the fasteners hooked, the zipping was easier. The shirt definitely holds a corrected posture. I look forward to wearing it and losing weight around my abdomen!!!! Thank you very much for designing such a needed garment ❣️
Tommy Copper is better
The zippered posture support shirt is very helpful in cuing me to engage my scapulae and pay attention to spinal alignment. Even without paying attention, the shirt helps keep me aligned.
I have noticed pain reduction and less fatigue.
I wish the material was more breathable.

I love wearing my align med shirt and knowing it is supporting the back. My posture definitely improves when I wear. Thanks, align-med!
The AlignMed products are a life changer for me. I have kyphosis and it has gotten to a point where at the start of the day I am standing almost erect but sadly by the end of the day I walk looking at the floor. This change in my posture makes normal activities difficult. After trying 3 different braces, meant to help this situation, I have almost given up. The braces do not help at all. So I spent an afternoon searching for an answer to my problem and found AlignMed. Just looking at the design and reading about the technology they use to create their items made me know I found the help I needed.
First I ordered the bra and then the zipper shirt. Within 10 minutes of wearing the bra I could feel muscles shifting. And as for the shirt I was in for an exciting surprise. I decided to wear my shirt for a market trip. I got in my car and said "oh my goodness", I was sitting so straight in my car, due to the shirt, that I actually had to adjust my review mirror! Every day there are more and more changes to my posture. Of course there is a little discomfort with my muscles, kind of the way one would feel if they had a gentle workout or had a great massage.
I can't say enough about AlignMed. Thank you for amazing products and fantastic, helpful and caring representatives.
Third time is a charm!
My daughter has several chronic pain conditions and deals with joint hypermobility. One of her most problematic areas is her shoulders. They sublux frequently, and even with gentle chiro care weekly, it's a struggle to keep them in place. The slightest movement can cause them to pop out of socket and back in, so there's a lot of wear and tear causing pain. She asked for a compression shirt after seeing one mentioned in a Chronic Pain talk focused on (Complex Regional Pain, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and Mito). We tried two other brands but due to lack of XS sizing and lack of enough support in the front of the shoulders, they were of no help. The $95 for the AlignMed shirt was money well spent!! Thanks for making a great product.
My neck and shoulder felt better after the first day. Ordering another today! Love it!
After reading the reviews, I took others’ recommendations and ordered a size up, which fits well and is supportive. The zipper is very helpful for putting on and removing without subluxing joints, especially in my neck. The scoop neck helps me stay cooler than a crew neck would. The only negative is that, at the same time, the scoop neck and larger size diminish the garment’s compression for my upper torso.
I appreciate that the top needs to be extremely snug, I wish there was a bit more comfort through the bodice. would also love a long sleeve and other colors.
Words can’t express how awesome my zip up Alignmed shirt is! The first couple days I wore it all day… after that I have put it on when I feel my back muscles stressing… immediately I feel relief and can go on with my day!
When my chiropractor suggested Alignmed I checked it out. I thought I could find something cheaper. So I bought different back supports online. Finally, a whole year later and still suffering with back pain I bought the one from Alignmed! So don’t waste money on something cheaper like I did. I’m now saving up for a second and maybe third one… that’s how much it has helped… that’s how much I totally love it!!!
I use the Alignmed shirts for my 12 hour clinic shifts. The posture shirts really help me to maintain better shoulder posture. I chart at a computer. Before I started wearing the shirts, my shoulders and neck were sore at the end of shift. My posture also suffered. With the Alignmed shirts, my shoulders aren't as tired and my neck is definitely better.
Thank you Alignmed!!
This is my third Alignmed posture shirt.
I love it. It makes my back feel so much better. Gives good support.
Just five minutes after putting on the alignmed shirt, 101 1/2 years old, felt instantly supported and her posture shifted incredibly! Her physical therapist came upstairs at the same time as the shirt arrived and was able to witness the change in her posture.
It has reduced my pain significantly and my posture improves when I wear it.
I was skeptical about how helpful this shirt would be for someone who spends 12-16+ h a day at a computer. An orthotics specialist at the spine clinic recommended I give this a try before trying more aggressive/firm posture aid options. I generally know how my body is supposed to feel when it's in good posture, but need reminders to adjust my posture when I'm at the computer for long periods of time. This shirt is like having someone gently tug at your shirt when your shoulders start to round forward. The shirt doesn't stop me from rounding my shoulders (nor did I expect it to), but I can feel the back straps against my upper back which is a reminder to me to adjust my posture. I'm a fan. My bust size is 33" and a small has worked well. I often wear it over another shirt so I can wear it more frequently between washes.

I have had poor posture for many years & now I am having back & shoulder pain. I read about Alignmed posture shirts in an orthopedic office waiting room. I ordered one of the zip up shirts. I work 10 hr shifts on the phone & computer most of the time. So posture & body alignment are extremely important. I have only been wearing the shirt for a few weeks but it seems to be comfortable & I feel my posture is improved with it on. It does roll up at the bottom but that will not keep me from wearing it. However I will probably order the Alignmed bra & give that a try as well.
I have EDS and when I wear this shirt I can tell I am getting the support I need. My one complaint is the color as there are only 2 options: black and white. Please make one in the color nude as it will do a better job of blending in under my clothes. Thank you.
This was the second Alignmed black zip up shirt I have purchased. There is a big difference I think between the two. The first one I had for several years and loved it. It was a huge help in helping my breathing while working out. I have COPD and have had it for years. A trainer told me about alignmed to help keep my shoulders down while working out. For years I have been raising my shoulders io get more air in and this shirt helps keep the shoulders down so that I breath better and deeper. Both are small. The older one has 18 inch zipper in the front with 8 hook and eyes. The new one has 16 inch zipper and 6 hook and eyes. The problem with the new one is when I drive to the gym or sit, it flips up and does not remain down around my hips. I have to always adjust the new one to help keep my shoulders down and improve my breathing. Just thought I would let you know. You may want to have more than one design in length. Thanks Pam McAtee
Being blessed with a lot of old injuries and re-injuries is a real pain. When I first tried the women's zip front posture shirt, I was a little skeptical since lifelong chiropractic care, EMS, laser therapy and gentle exercise have always fixed me up. Unfortunately at my age, they weren't working fast enough on the latest and greatest injury. Um, a little miracle happened! My Mother ordered me this "interesting" shirt. Not only was I able to get into the shirt with my torn shoulder ligament and muscle and dislocated ribs, but it felt GREAT, like wearing a hug :) The posture shirt was instrumental in helping keep me in place after my chiropractic adjustments and retraining the damaged bits to stay where they're supposed to stay. Fast forward a couple of years and I've managed to tear myself up again, same shoulder and ribs and neck is pretty tweeked as well. Back on with the shirt, and back on with my go to therapies. And order two more shirts that I now call "Magic Shirts"! This is an outstanding product and it is a genuine pleasure to call William and ask annoying questions and not only get the answers but also answers to questions I hadn't thought to ask. Helpful people, US based company, excellent product, there is a lot to love here.
Alignmed was recommended to me by a health professional when I had to start using a cane. I had a tendency to lean forward due to pain. With alignmed it immediately keeps my posture in the correct position and allows me to move more freely. I would highly recommend it for anyone who needs help in maintaining a correct posture which also aids in healing.
That said, I was most upset that the only method of delivery was Fed Ex at a cost of $45 and with the US exchange put on the Canadian dollar my alignmed vest became a cost of $185. For any future purchase of this type of aid I will do more research and ensure that I purchase only in Canada where I live. I would recommend that anyone purchasing these items research the country they live in prior to ordering. Not because the vest I received wasn't of good quality but because I didn't live in the U.S. I found it cost prohibitive.
I really really like this product. It does what it is advertised to do. In fact, I ordered 2...one zippered and one unzippered, both in size 2XL. My only problem is it squashes my breasts flat, even without a bra on. Admittedly my bra size is 38D, but this is very uncomfortable and noticeable outside my clothing. Still I suffer through wearing it about 6 hours each day for the past 3 weeks and notice great improvement of posture and tiredness in back.
Sizing for XXL was much too small. Otherwise I would have loved it.
Fits great, feels great
I do not have a back ache if I were this. Only issue is it rids up if you are on the heavy side. needs to be more a frame to give space for a wide waist.
It has been 1 week and I'm quite happy with this purchase so far. My partner commented on how straight my posture was immediately after I put it on.
Fit: In women's clothing, I fall between size 4 and 6 (pear shaped). The customer service representative kindly recommended size S. The zipper folds oddly while sitting and bottom does ride up after standing back up, but it is an easy to pull back down. There is also an elastic band along the hem that helps to curtail that.
My greatest concern would be with how well the bands will hold up with continued use. Like many others, I intend to wear and wash this near daily.
I purchased the zipper front Posture Shirt 2.0. I’m experiencing ALL the benefits and comforts mentioned in the advertising of the Posture Shirt 2.0. My issue was daily shoulder/low back pain. Since wearing the Posture Shirt, no more pain! I feel energized, more flexible and my posture is corrected! I’m 84 y.o. 5’6” 36b cup. 168lbs. Medium fits me perfectly! It’s a very rewarding investment!
I have a non-repairable torn rotator due to radiation tissue damage from cancer treatment. PT has helped but still have issues keeping the shoulder in place. This shirt helps relieve that issue and supports my shoulders and spine.
its not worth the price, it wasn't what i expected or they advertised about it , its useless and i regret buying it .I am just very disappointed to believe that ,it would be helpful and i spent all that money . I am trying to send it back
I have worn it every day, and I now have less back pain from being on my feet or walking. I have a small bosom, so I no longer need a bra. I ordered the shirt with the zipper which I love for casual wear, but I plan to buy the pullover style for other occasions because the zipper creates bumps under the clothes.
Very comfortable not tight but definitely noted I have pain relief when I wearing.
Comfortable and it is helping me to hold shoulders back. Thanks!
I love my Alignmed Zipper Posture Shirt! I have hypermobility issues and this shirt has helped so much. I'm 5'2", 34A bra size, and weigh 112 lbs. This small fits well. The sizing seems a bit inconsistent. The first one I received I ended up exchanging due to an issue in the stitching. It was also a small and was a bit looser around abdomen and the sides behind the arms. This second one is more snug of a fit which I do like better. However, the elastic around the waist is much tighter than the first one, and tends to ride up after a lot of bending and activity. Regardless, they both fit (albeit differently) and helped tremendously. I do favor the fit of the second one though! The 30 day return policy is fabulous. Takes the risk out of trying the product. I'm glad I called to exchange it. It was convenient and efficient.
I can really see and feel the difference the Postural Fitness shirt makes! I visibly have much better posture than I can when "I think" I am standing up straight. My neck, that has some disk issues also feels much better when I wear the shirt. Expensive, but worth it to me because I see and feel the difference. The shirt also runs small according to how it fits me even though I am within the weight range. I exchanged it for a larger size.
I ordered the posture shirt with zipper. It is simple to get it on and it has helped tremendously with my back ache! I’m an art teacher who is constantly leaning down or on my feet. With this posture shirt I have zero pain and feel comfortable all day! I highly recommended!
Wish I looked like your model in this photo, but I really like this product and am going to be reordering 2 more. They have really helped the support to my shoulders.
Yo lo recomiendo el Posture Shirt a mi me ha ayudado con mi dolor que tengo en la espalda y cuello y estoy muy satisfecha con el producto y el envio tambien llega rapido gracias.
It didn't do a darn thing for posture neck and back
The posture shirt has helped me tremendously! I am a hair stylist and I had a cervical and lumbar fusion. The posture shirt helps to keep my posture right and relieves my pain. When I do not wear it, I get fatigue faster and start to get pain. When I put the posture shirt on, within 5 minutes I notice a difference and feel like a new person.
fit is ok too long when you are 5ft 2in. needs to be shorter, I may try the zipper again in a Large ? better if it is shorter.
I like my shirt. I wear it when working in my home office with computer. It helps my posture and core.
Do you have any vests/brace like options?
Love this shirt! Got it as a recommendation from my orthopedic surgeon after shoulder surgery and it has helped my pain a lot. Highly recommend!
This shirt is just awesome, very comfortable, and more importantly, it helps relieves any back pain that i've been experiencing. On way my to buying a second set. Highly recommend!
I really like this posture shirt. When I first tried it on, I immediately stood a little taller and straighter. I wear it a lot but just wish they had one without sleeves for the summer tank tops. It really helps in so many ways. Worth the money. Brought one for my daughter, who also loves it.
I have tried a few posture shirt brands and BY FAR alignmed was the best one. The cost is absolutely worth it! I end up going less to the chiro and have less shoulder/neck issues!
Also, alignmedâ€™s customer service was impeccable! William was amazing and made sure that my experience was seamless as I needed to exchange an item to a smaller size.
I love my alignmed, zipper style shirt. So much, in fact, that I just ordered another one in a different color for myself and one for my husband. We can all use the posture control and muscular retraining...
I work lifting heavy bags Longs hours
And at 73 this product have help me
Work pain free. Everyone amazes at
How well I keep up with the younger workers. Love â¤ï¸ this posture shirt doesnâ€™t roll up over your Abdominal no matter sitting standing moving in it.
