It took many relationships with experts from multiple disciplines to achieve the innovation of Posture Wings!
Posture Wings worked with global leaders in technical manufacturing, sports medicine (biomechanics and orthopedics), physical therapy, lymphedema, technical textile and garment construction. The bra industry is stuck in the 100 year old lingerie design or the 45 year old sport bra design of compression.
We must demand more medical science into area of breast tissue support!
51% of women suffer severe breast tissue pain and that does not include the pain of our neck, shoulder and back that is caused by the bra design. Our breasts go through many changes in our life - from Puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, nursing, menopause and for many, cancer.
Posture Study Conclusion
"The data demonstrates that the Posture Wings bra does affect the muscles of the upper back and causes scapular retraction to pull the shoulders posteriorly. There also appears to be a residual effect when the bra is not being worn, so the bra is providing either a strengthening effect or providing muscle memory. Either would be positive. It seems the Posture Wings bra would be a positive utility for someone who suffers from kyphosis."
The patented straps also stabilize breast tissue and reduces movement and the Posture Wings engineered bra is more comfortable and supportive than any current bra on the market!
The pain of our breasts cause women to not want to exercise. We know, if we have a day that our breasts feel sensitive, we don't want to bounce that tissue because it will hurt more, and are less likely to exercise.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the illnesses that women suffer more from than men can be improved by exercise. We suffer more:
Anxiety and Depression
Stroke and Heart Morbidity
What does this mean?
The lack of good, healthy comfortable breast support is killing us!
The bra industry pays for the science of breast tissue support - this is a problem that we must come together to solve by demanding more medical scientific studies be done and sign up to purchase a Posture Wings bra or Contact Us to support us in whatever way you can to help to disrupt the bra industry!
K L – Tacoma, WA It’s now been 2 months since I purchased my Posture Wings. I have to tell you that in the past 4 years I have NOT ONCE been able to sleep in after I awake in the morning because of neck pain waking me up (herniated C3/4, C4/5, C6/7). The first night I wore it and I slept in till 9 am! My husband was checking on me to make sure I was okay, cause I always get up around 6 am! And not only that, I didn't wake up with neck pain AT ALL! I can’t believe it, it’s like a miracle (that sounds tacky, but true)… I hope this helps with your future promotions of this wonderful product.
J. S. – Issaquah, WA I initially bought this bra because I had a fall & fractured 3 vertebra. It certainly helped with the pain associated during the healing process. I pulled it out again recently because I have had shoulder pain in my left shoulder for months. My massage therapist suggested it may be caused by postural issue. I have been using the bra again for a week, and my shoulder is getting better! I mean, REALLY better! I can’t believe it. If this clears up, which it appears to be doing, then that saved me the stress of an MRI and all the hassle of doctors. Thank You!
The next week - Just an FYI – I decided not to wear the Posture Wings this morning. Within 2 hours at my desk, my back and shoulder was started to really hurt. Stretching did not resolve it. Thankfully, I had one of the Posture Wings in my bag, so I put it on. Voila! My back doesn’t ache and my shoulders are back and comfortable. The difference is profound. I am comfortable. Thank you again.
R M – Woodinville, WA Your bra has really helped my posture and my overall sense of well being. I stand up straighter I walk taller and feel lighter. What I notice most is that when I wear it I don't feel the usual stinging pain in the back of my shoulders - during stressful times. Also it has helped tremendously in the awareness of standing up straight and it is now easier to put my shoulders back and retain it. This is something I have been striving for in the past few years and wasn't quite able to do it without the posture bra. The bra definitely works and works great! I’m so grateful you created it and I found you!! That may sound cheesy - hopefully you can use it for a testimonial - but really it does work great. Thank You so much!!!
E. R Ontario, Canada Mary, this garment is AMAZING. it's kind of miraculous. I don't know how it does it, but I’ve just never had an experience like this. Such a difference to my posture. Wow. This is really something that needs to be out there. It's better than I imagined. I'm going to wear only this from now on. I wish I could do something to help. THANK YOU!
J G – Kenmore, WA After wearing the Posture Wings bra for a year, I would recommend it for any female. However, I would consider it essential for a woman of my age (55 yrs) and whose job is very computer orientated. I have had various back, shoulder and neck pain for many years and sitting slumped over at a computer aggravates my problems. The Posture Wing bra gently reminds me to keep my shoulders back and head lifted taking stress off my problem areas and keeping my day to day pain under control. Not only does it provide me muscle memory guidance but the bra is also very comfortable to wear even when comparing it to many other expensive bras I have purchased.
I suggest all women try this bra!
I also must share my mother’s complete satisfaction with the Posture Wing bra. She is 88 years old and wears this bra religiously saying it is very comfortable while keeping her posture young looking….and it does.
D S – Kirkland, WA I want to thank you for your Posture Wings bra. I tried this undergarment after being frustrated by being self conscience about my chest size. As a result of my concerns, I found myself compensating by rounding my shoulders forward. Realizing the importance of good posture, I gave the Posture Wings a try and am delighted with the results. The bra helped 'train' my shoulders back, while providing good support and comfort. This small step helped revitalize my self confidence, and put me on track toward a more healthful and active lifestyle.
Who knew a bra could do so much? It must be true that real change starts from the inside out!
B V – Phoenix, AZ I am very happy with your product and have used it a few times already. It definitely helps me stabilize, especially with my shoulder injury. It is quite comfortable, I might add! I'll definitely recommend your product to the other girls on the project :)
S T – Bremerton, WA I have found my Posture Wings helpful. I have found that they are more comfortable and feel more natural every day. I believe my posture is getting better, and Posture Wings is has a lot to do with that! I believe it is making a difference in my life!
J B – Tahuya WA This bra has been a lifesaver for me. I have disc degeneration in my c~spine, t~spine and l-spine regions and I don't know what I would do without it. I want more!
The Posture Wings patented solution is for any embodiment for any gender. Men too can have adjustable shoulder positioning for improved posture support.
At N.C. State University, College of Textiles we designed a male version and conducted a usability study with 95% satisfaction!
