The garments definitely help with postural support as they encourage optimal horizontal extension and retraction of the Scapulae, (upper central key points) giving a Scapulothoracic neutral posture. The value in this for function is to lessen kyphotic stress in the primary curvature which physiologically eases counter-stress in the secondary curvature of the segments. The wearer should therefore be aware of less effort and mechanical stress particularly with prolonged standing or sitting and may, indeed, notice improved ergonomics with upper limb activity.

Looking Your Best - Men's Style Tips

If you want to lookyour best - start from the inside out - beginning with your underwear. Compression garments such as ours will streamline your look, while giving you posture support. This means that no matter how you layer your look you'll be standing taller and looking trimmer. Then whatever you wear will look better - but that doesn't mean that there aren't some commong fashion rules you should follow if you want to make sure you look as good dressed as you do undressed.

To make the most of your look, remember to, where possible, buy tailored outfits with good quality fabric to compliment your body shape. Whether you're wearing a t-shirt or a suit, poor quality fabric can lose its shape quickly and detract from your overall appearance. A tailored outfit will enhance all that hard work you've done at the gym, or if needs be, will also help disguise the work you failed to do.

Remember, not all clothes are created equal and while a garment may be in fashion and look great on that eighteen year old male model, it doesn't necessarily mean it is going to suit your body shape or even your own personal style.

So how do you choose the right clothes for you?

Stay tuned to this blog next week as we give our top ten tips for creating your own personal look.
