About the Toros Group Posture Corrector
The Toros-Group Comfort Posture Corrector is a back support brace designed for general use, as well as to help kyphosis, lordosis, kyphoscoliosis, and winged scapula. The company also recommends it for recovery after either an injury or surgery on the spine or clavicle (collar bone). It is intended to prevent curvature of the spine. It offers six different sizes to help customers get the most comfortable fit. They recommend using their size chart as the product doesn’t use standard US sizing. The sizes range from XS to XXL to fit a 23.5″ to 47.5″ waist.
Wear the brace for three to four hours each day after building up from shorter periods. The back brace is adjustable and has lumbar pads for comfort. Both the shoulders and the waist can be adjusted. The brace is intended to be worn directly on the skin or with a cotton undershirt, but due to its bulk, it’s not ideal for wearing under clothes, making it best to wear at home.
The brace is cotton and elastic, with Velcro fastenings. It also has metal for support in the structure of the brace. Many people who have reviewed it say that it’s very comfortable to wear, although it could make you warm to wear it during hotter weather.
Reviews of the Toros-Group Comfort Posture Corrector on Amazon are positive, with the majority giving a four or five-star rating. Many people say the brace is comfortable and helps them correct posture. However, some people do have various complaints about sizing, while others say it doesn’t give as much support as they had hoped.
I ordered the Large size because my waist is almost 38”, and this was the recommended size. I was looking forward to using a full upper torso wrap because I’d never tried a brace that has so much torso support. When it arrived, I put it on, but the brace was way too small for me. I couldn’t even get it close to stretching around my stomach area, and I needed at least 4-6 more inches. So, I went ahead and asked for an exchange.
They do not offer refunds, but I asked about getting one because of a sizing issue, and they allowed it and emailed me a prepaid shipping label. I did get a refund for the original one in a few days, and I had to order another one in the bigger size (XX-Large).
The larger size fits much better. Putting on the brace is easy, and I do it by myself, with the simple straps. I can also tighten it by myself to maximum tightness. One thing I noticed immediately was that this is a bulky brace. I don’t recommend trying to wear it under clothing. I decided to wear it at home for about half an hour on minimal tightness, and that worked great. I put it on the second time and wore it while driving. I wore it under clothes during this session, but there were bulges sticking out, so it was still noticeable. I had great posture support, though, so it was positive overall.
The torso support on this brace doubles as a back support for heavy lifting and work around the house. Overall, this brace is a good quality brace, and it does not come loose. It is highly reviewed and has good ratings on Amazon, which is why I chose to try it. My main dislike on this brace is it appears to mostly just pull the shoulders back. As a result, one shoulder can get tighter than the other. I try to avoid braces that just pull the shoulders back for posture correction. A lot of research has shown that training back muscles and having good spinal alignment should be the ultimate goal for better posture.Purchase Toros-Group Brace Here
The Toros-Group Comfort Posture Corrector offers an interesting option for posture correction and back support. However, it does have its limits, so don’t expect it to meet all your needs. If you’re thinking about buying it, remember that it mostly helps to pull your shoulders back. It’s also a good idea to keep the sizing in mind and order a size up from what you think you need.
