Braceability is one of the leading manufacturers of support braces in the market. In this review, we look at the Braceability posture brace and what we think about it. By the end of this Braceability review, you will know whether or not to purchase the brace support.
Overview of Braceability Posture Corrector
The Braceability brace is one of the posture devices that you can easily put on without needing help from someone to tighten it. The company behind the posture aid has a great reputation and the device comes at an affordable price.
To improve your posture, Braceability pulls the shoulders back to straighten the back. According to the company, the posture brace is also suitable for use during recovery after back surgery. Other conditions that can be alleviated by wearing the posture brace include mild scoliosis, kyphosis and migraine.
Editor’s Note: Generally, posture correctors that do not pull the shoulders back are recommended. This is because the correctors retrain the back muscles to be in the correct posture.
Braceability Review: My Experience
I ordered the Braceability posture corrector from Amazon. While there were not many reviews of the product, the company’s reputation made me confident to try the corrector.
From the looks of things, this is not one of the bestselling products by Braceability. One of the things I noticed is that the posture aid has a thick form. Wearing the brace underneath the clothing is impossible unless you are comfortable with it bulging and people knowing you are wearing it.
While the company advertises that the brace is thin, this is not the case. However, this is not to say it does not work.

No Instructions Included
When I got my Braceability package, I looked for the instruction manual but none was included. So, it was all a game of trial and error trying to adjust the brace to fit.
While I was able to get all the straps in the correct position, it took me quite some time. The failure to include an instruction manual in the package is something the company should address.
Adjusting the Brace
The brace I ordered was the large size one. However, there is also a smaller size one if you have a small body frame.
One of the points I have to give this corrector is that you can wear it by yourself without requiring help from someone else. However, to get the straps to be tight enough, you may need some help.
The Braceability support brace goes on like a backpack. If you have tried the PostureNow brace, you may know how complicated it can be trying to put it on. This is not the case with this corrector.
Another plus for the brace is that it can get quite tight. You can adjust the straps to the level of tightness you prefer. However, be careful not to adjust it too tightly as it can end up restricting blood circulation and make you numb or even sore.
A posture corrector is meant to help reduce back pain. If you adjust it to be too tight, you can end up with back pain rather than eliminating it.
The Braceability posture brace works by pulling the shoulders slightly to the back. Therefore, it does not feel unwearable. If you have severe back pain and would like to wear a corrector the whole day, I highly recommend this brace support.
Value of the Posture Corrector
While Braceability is one of the top rated brace support aids in the market, it is definitely not top of a line. This is more of a budget brace support meant for use at home. You can wear the brace for a couple of hours in your home office.
Wearing the support brace will help to align your back in the correct posture and alleviate back pain. The easy-to-wear brace is also quite affordable.
Using the Braceability Support Brace
When you purchase the Braceability posture corrector, you should not wear it for too long at first. Instead, gradually ease yourself until you get used to wearing the brace. Ideally, you should start wearing the corrector for 30 minutes, and then gradually increase over the days until up to 3 hours. It may be quite some time before you get used to wearing the brace for long periods of time.
Braceability support brace is made from polyester and latex-free nylon. You should wash the brace to keep it clean. Washing is simple: unstrap the Velcro pieces and use mild soap and warm water to hand wash the straps. From there, rinse the straps and air dry them. Do not use hot water to wash or hot air to dry.
