ALIGNMED Posture Shirt 2.0 & ALIGNMe Active Bra

* I happened to win the Alignmed Posture Shirt 2.0.  I was so impressed at how well it worked, that I wanted to do a review to let all my readers know.

Those of you who visit my blog often, know I complain about my back, neck and shoulders from sitting around working on the computer.  Between my age (I will be 64 next month) and the computer, my back is a mess.

I exercise daily for it.  The exercise helps, but the problem is always still there.   I get a burning feeling in my left shoulder blade that gets worse the longer I sit on the computer.  I can rub the spot and feel a knot there.     The burn ends up being a pain that can really hurt.  It also itches sometimes.
I also have a slight curvature of the spine and lower back problems from a Hip Replacement. 

I seen a giveaway through Palooza Radio that had an ALIGNMED shirt along with other prizes.  I wanted to try the ALIGNMED shirt really bad to see if it would work for my aches and pains in my neck, back and shoulders.  So, I kept tweeting the giveaway daily.
Guess What!!!  I won!!!   
I was so happy and couldn't wait to get my ALIGNMED Posture Shirt 2.0.  Plus, they sent me the ALIGN Me Active Bra.

The ALIGNMED Posture Shirt 2.0 (The One And Only Posture Shirt) Is engineered with AlignMed's patented NeuroBand Technology that uses a propietary blend of variable elasticity to activate muscles, increase postural control and provide important biofeedback for muscle retraining 

The Posture Shirt 2.0 comes in a pullover style and the zipper style I have on in the picture. 

If you have and upper extremity condition or you are recovering from an injury or surgery, you should choose the zipper style.

I know there are some days my muscles hurt in my shoulder so bad that I wouldn't be able to pull a snug shirt over my head.


When you first start wearing the Posture 2.0 Shirt, you will experience
. A gentle pulling
That is so true.  When I first put the shirt on, I could feel a slight downward pull on my shoulders.  It didn't hurt, in fact.. it kind of felt like a massaging pull.
 . Thermogenesis / Muscle Heat
This is your muscles activatiing and it feels really nice.
. Pain Relief
In the beginning, I only had relief from the pain while I was wearing the shirt.  After wearing it for a couple of weeks, I had longer periods of relief from the pain.
. Muscle Fatigue
Due to the increased muscle activity from wearing the Posture 2.0 shirt, the muscles in my shoulders did feel a little tired.  Not bad though.
. Correct Body Alignment
I felt when I wore the shirt that I was standing straighter, but then my Hubs told me that  my shoulders looked more squared.  That is good, because at my age, old women get these stooped looking shoulders.  
I am wondering if this shirt can help with my curvature of the spine.  I have had slight scoliosis since I was a kid.
. Improved Performance
When you don't hurt, you feel like doing more things.  
. Faster Recovery Rate
. Increased Mobility

How The Alignmed Posture Shirt 2.0 and the AlignMe Active Bra Worked For Me
I mentioned I won the AlignMed Posture Shirt and the Active Bra.  But since they work so well, I want to make sure all my readers know.

By the way, I wore either the AlignMed Poster Shirt 2.0 or the AlignMe Active Bra every single day after I got it.   I would wear it while doing all my housework, exercise, shopping... I just wore it like it was part of me.     Since I had both the bra and the shirt, I could wear one and wash one.      I wore them under my clothing so no one knew I had anything helping with my pain or posture.

When I received the Posture Shirt and the bra, it was bitter cold out so they felt like they came out of a deep freezer.  I couldn't wait to warm them up enough that I could try them out.  My shoulders had really been hurting from playing on the computer and I was ready to see if they would give me some relief.

When I first put the shirt on, I felt the gentle pulling that AlignMed says you will experience.   It didn't feel painful, in fact it kind of felt like I was getting a slight massage.   I told my Hubs right then.... I like this shirt.!!
He told me that when I wear the shirt, my shoulders look more squared.

The first night, and for a few nights after wearing the posture shirt all day, my shoulders felt really tired when I took it off.    They actually almost ached.  The next day, they even kind of felt bruised. 
  I had read where that can happen because the shirt is re-training your muscles.    The achy, bruised feeling at night and during the day only lasted about a week.  Now when I take the shirt or bra off, I don't get that ache.     I am sure my muscles aren't completely retrained, but they are getting stronger.   

I got up out of bed one night to go to the restroom, It was about a week and a half after I had been wearing the Posture Shirt and Bra.  I noticed I was holding my shoulders back.  I wasn't even thinking about it... it just happened.  That is how I knew it was working.

How do the AlignMed Shirt and Bra work while I am on the computer?    At first, I could feel the burn and pain in my shoulder wanting to come.   It would feel like it was almost burning, but never seemed to get to a full burn and pain that goes up my neck and down my shoulder.

The longer I wore the shirt, the less I felt like my shoulder was even starting to burn.   By the end of 3 1/2 weeks, I no longer feel like I have a problem.
I don't know how long I will have to wear the shirt and the bra.    I don't care either.  If I have to wear them the rest of my life, then so be it.   They work!

The CEO and Founder of AlignMed Bill Schultz started the AlignMed company in desperation to avoid spinal fusion surgery.
Alignmed is a new generation of performance apparel.  We’ve spent ten years merging medical science and clinical research with fabric technology to produce garments that use controlled resistance to stimulate muscle and nerve activity.  It’s a wearable workout that interacts with the user’s natural movement; the end result is better posture for improved performance, injury prevention and reduction in pain. 

Good Housekeeping also put AlignMed through the rigors of their Good Housekeeping Institute, testing their  shirts with a large group in the consumer panel they created. Those members wore the shirts for a couple of months, worked in them, wore them at home, washed them, worked out in them. It all lead to them awarding  AlignMed their highest endorsement in the magazine, their "TRIED. TESTED. TRUSTED." endorsement.

  4. This sounds like an amazing shirt! I'd get one for Jason, but his issue lies in his lower back. We have spent a fortune on chiropractor this past year, but thankfully that seems to be working. If it goes up to the shoulders, I am definitely getting him this shirt!

    1. I have lower back issues also. This seemed to help with that too. But maybe my upper issues cause my lower issues. Who knows??

  5. I am going to be 65 in September and I agree, my posture just isn't what it used to be. My upper back, neck and my right shoulder really do hurt a lot lately. I am going in to see about this right away!

  34. Would you recommend the bra and the shirt to alternate or just 2 shirts?

    1. Jill,
      I really like the shirt to wear with sweaters and longer sleeves. The bra works with more summery clothing. They both work great... It just depends on what I am wearing as to which I choose.
      I think if it were me... I would have to have the shirt and the bra.

  35. I missed the part about how you won. You'll have to make sure you share this review with the company. I'm sure they'll appreciate it. It's a good review.
