Curvature of the Spine
There are multiple types of spinal curvature disorders that can make wearing a bra more difficult. Some problems that can be caused by a curved spine include the bra band rolling up your back or the straps falling off of your shoulders. If you have a curved spine or sloped shoulders, you may think it’s impossible to find a bra that supports you comfortably. Don’t fret! There are plenty of styles available that will work for you.
Proper Bras for Spinal Curvature
Wearing the correct type of bra will not only reduce daily annoyances, it can make you look and feel much better. The key here is to purchase a bra with a wide bra band in the back. A bra with a wide band will lie flat against your back and prevent the bra from riding up.
Another type of bra to look for is a posture bra. This type of bra is designed to support the back. You may also want to try a longline bra which extends to the waist. A longline bra will stay in place all day long and offer great support.
If your bra straps fall off of your shoulders, make sure to buy bras that have fully-adjustable straps. Many women with curved spines need to adjust one strap tighter than the other, so be sure to adjust your straps to fit your body. Bras that have straps that are close together in the back are best for spinal curvature.
