Smart nurses around the world are trusting our Babe Brace to protect their back and necks, and for good reason.
With our own Bust Supportive Design, our Babe Brace is specifically made for nurses' needs so you can protect your beautiful body and feel comfortable doing it.
And word is getting out. Since 2019, we've sold over 10,000 Babe Braces already!
In this super brief article we're going to explain how to use yours, more about it works so well, and the posture issue as a whole.
First, make sure it fits right.
The Babe Brace can go over or under your clothing (most wear it discretely under their scrubs or home clothes). It should be snug and secure, but not uncomfortable.
It should not pinch your shoulders or any part of your body.
It should remain comfortable the entire time you have it on and shouldn't feel less comfortable as you move around.
If it's too tight, just let us know at email@example.com and we will send you a FREE replacement of a larger size.
You won't even have to send it back!!
Wear it for short periods FIRST
This is because if you ordered a size too small, it can cause discomfort if you wear it for too long.
And sometimes you get so caught up in work that you might leave it on too long, and that can lead to pain or discomfort.
We strongly suggest that you wear it for 15-30 minutes first, so you can see how comfortable it is for you.
Take it off for at least 15 minutes after, and if you feel good, feel free to put it on again whenever you want after.
How to Use it for Posture Correction
Wear it a few hours a day and it will help you "set" your muscles in the correct position.
When you have it off, you'll be used to that set position and you'll more naturally hold your muscles the way they should be held.
To improve your posture, it's important that you make an attempt to hold your muscles in this position - with your shoulders back and your chest out!
For longer term posture correction, we strongly recommend doing some very simple exercises as well, which we have outlined in our Busy Nurse's Amazing Posture Program (more below!)
First, if you have severe back or neck pain with an underlying cause, PLEASE consult with your physician if you have any questions.
That said, the vast majority of back and neck pain can be solved quickly by improving your posture.
Just put the Babe Brace on and let it do what it does best!
Because it puts you into proper posture once you put it on, nurses have told us countless times that it's helped back and neck pain IMMEDIATELY.
This said, we still strongly recommend posture correcting exercises (see our program below) just to create a stronger foundation so you only need to use the Brace occasionally if you want.
That way, you can aim to be pain free with no assistance!
Unlike other posture correctors, the Babe Brace is designed for maximum comfort and support for nurses' needs.
It accomplishes this with our Bust Supportive design. It does this with:
Simply put, your posture is your body's foundation, and if it's weak you can expect aches, pains, and injuries over time.
As nurses, we all know that we're on our feet all day. Lifting, moving, running, etc.
When your posture is weak, your body is unable to prevent the wear and tear on it. And for us, unfortunately that wear and tear is particularly damaging because of our incredibly demanding workload.
50-80% of nurses report moderate to severe back or neck pain at LEAST once their career. This costs money, stress, aggravation, and a lot more. This also means the chances of this happening to you are very high - unless you do something about it now!
As a nurse - you need a strong, healthy body, so you can live a long caring career! But fortunately, that's what we're here for!

How long does my order take to arrive?
Over 90% of our nurses in the US get their order in 3-5 business days. Over 90% of our nurses in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Europe get their order within 5-12 business days. Depending on demand and the shopping season, on very rare occasion it may take 12-18 business days to arrive at your doorstep for orders outside of the US. Please allow an average 4-8 weeks for Middle Eastern orders.
Will the Babe Brace weaken my back muscles?
No it will not! Our Babe Brace is an aid that helps your muscles maintain the correct posture, acting as a constant reminder to your and your muscles that keep your posture straight. Your muscles will develop over time to maintain the better posture that you've developed!
Will the Babe Brace pinch my arms or shoulders?
Only if you're wearing it too tight or your shoulders are too rounded! If it feels tight, loosen the straps to your comfort level and pull your shoulders back! If you are slouching, it will become uncomfortable, forcing you to keep your shoulders back to regain comfort. It is the perfect way to strengthen your muscles to develop long term healthy posture!
How long can I wear the Babe Brace?
Your body will not be used to your new position, so it will take some time. Many see great results in their posture in a week, and it often takes 2-5 weeks to see true long term results. Stop wearing it as soon as it becomes uncomfortable; take a break and wear it again. Don't wear it to bed. Most of our customers achieve great success wearing it 1-2 hours at a time.
What size of the Babe Brace is right for me?
Please see the sizing when you select the size of the Babe Brace you want!
If you somehow choose the wrong size - we will send you a free replacement!
Can I wear the Babe Brace under my shirt?
Yes! Our Babe Brace is designed to be sleek so that it fits undershirts or clothing, so you can wear it in public without anyone noticing. In fact, many of our nurses say it fits just like a bra!
Should I wear the Babe Brace to work?
Yes! If you wear it to work you will probably want to wear it under your clothing. This is totally up to you - it is not 100% necessary to wear to work. We generally recommend wearing it at home after your shift, or for a few hours on your days off.
What if I select the wrong size?
We offer a FREE replacement if you select the wrong size Babe Brace! Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure that you are happy with your brace!

Amazing!! I'm a 34DDD and I get pain in my shoulders and neck after too much time charting at work. And sometimes I get back pain from standing on my feet too long. I put this on and instantly....ahhhhhh!!! I wear it everyday now. It goes right under my clothes and over my bra. No chafing pinching or discomfort. AND NO UGLY VISIBLE BRACE!!! 5 stars for sure. I'm ordering another in nude.
- Jessica , The Babe Brace
The Babe Brace arrived in 3 days to my home in New York and works great! I notice the difference in posture right when I put it on. Can't recommend it enough.
- Carla , The Babe Brace
The back brace has helped a lot with my back pain and posture! One of the best purchases I've ever made. Seriously can't recommend this enough to nurses with back pain or posture problems.
- Lauren, The Babe Brace
I injured my back around my shoulder blades and I was in so much pain, so as I started to recover I wore your babe brace for 15 minutes and the relief of my back pain was insane. I have no idea how just 15 minutes of wearing this would improve my comfort so much! I can’t wait to try this in a clinical setting.
- Anonymous, The Babe Brace
Nice and very sturdily built. Helped me stand up straight right away. I think it takes time before it makes me stand up properly without it, but it made me conscious of my bad posture immediately. I definitely recommend this brace!!
- Kasey Roberts, The Babe Brace
Well stitched together... the fabric of this posture corrector is both durable and breathable. I've tried a few other posture correctors and this is the best by far. It's comfortable and fits just like a bra. LOVE it!
- T H, The Babe Brace
Fits really comfortable over or under my bra! I've tried several posture correctors and this is the best by far in terms of comfort!!
- Amy Kling, The Babe Brace
Very happy, fits perfectly! I had no idea a posture corrector could be so comfortable. Really has helped my posture in just a few weeks. LOOVE!
- Nicole, The Babe Brace
It got here fast, and I feel really comfortable using it. It really did improve my posture right away. We'll see in time if it helps me to stand straighter and not hunchbacked. Thank you very much!
- D H, The Babe Brace
The Brace came in about a week to New Zealand. The quality is very good!! The threads do not stick out, and it's stitched well. My posture really holds!
