Dressing With Your Scoliosis Brace


Dressing With Your Scoliosis Brace


Figuring out what to wear with a big piece of plastic wrapped around you can be a bit challenging at first. Here you will find information about what to wear under your brace and what to wear on top.

The Ideal Undershirt

You want an extra layer of protection between your skin and your brace, so always wear a tight-fitting shirt underneath your scoliosis brace. Wrinkles are the enemy! They can create excessive pressure in certain areas and cause skin irritation.

If it’s summertime or if you find that you are always hot in your brace, try to find shirts that have cooling properties. Brands that specialize in athletic wear will give you a lot of options.


Under the Undershirt

Here are a couple of pro underwear tips. Bras without underwire may be more comfortable. In the underwear department, to making going to the bathroom easier, some people wear their underwear on top of the brace. Whatever you find easiest, do it.


Dressing with Your Scoliosis Brace

Whenever buying new clothes, be sure to try them on wearing your scoliosis brace. If you do not want your brace to be noticeable, stick with clothes that are more loose fitting. Our best advice is to dress in whatever clothes make you feel most confident and comfortable!

Pinterest and Instagram are a great place to look for fashion advice. Scolios-us even has a Pinterest Page. YouTube is another great option.
