I was looking forward to having the shoulder brace.It was out of stock.
After wearing the brace only once my skin was bleeding from the chafing caused by the band edging. I snipped the stitches in the sleeve to open the fit up. This has helped but it’s still not great. I tried both the medium and small and kept the small because the medium was too big. I love the fabric and the ease of putting it on but the design does not have the flexibility to adjust the fit. It is not for everyone.
Helped some, but should have ordered one size up
I own several products by this company and they all work super great! This does too, and I feel bad taking one star off, which is for the fit. I ordered this in the size small, and it feels too loose with gaps that look a bit too big. Looking at the pictures of it here, it looks like there maybe should not be so much space between the body and the brace as I am experiencing. I did order the smallest size, which is small, and maybe I am a bit smaller than the average, middle aged woman. My measurement around the arm fits bang on (no problem with the fit around my bicep), but my measurement right around my body, just under my bust, is only 27 1/2. This might be a bit too small for the correct fit in the small size? Hope that will help some of you decide on fit if you are more petite like I am. It is too loose to chafe or anything as others have mentioned here (the side strap is actually floppy and does not sit against my body at all, and yes, I have it on correctly, maybe that is okay to be floppy?), but it does not have a "comfortable" fit simply on account of how loose it feels around my shoulder and chest area. But, it does seem to be helping, so I will have to get used to how loose it feels. I have been wearing it only about 15 minutes and my sore shoulder feels better already. I have a sore shoulder from a bit of an exercise injury with dumbbells. But, like the other products,I have no doubt that it will indeed take care of this for me, so I can get back to my fitness routines!
Bought this for my husband. He finds it is helping his shoulder problem, but the strap that goes around under his other arm is not very comfortable in the long run.
