One type of fairly popular bra is the longline posture bra.  It is covered briefly in a previous article:  How to Choose a Posture Bra.  However, due to the popularity of the longline, we thought a brief article would be beneficial to readers. They have some unique characteristics that provide improved posture support.

Let’s look at the regular longline bra first.  This type of bra extends down your body like a corset, typically covering down to your belly button area.  Most women purchase a longline bra to improve their figure – the bra flattens the stomach and torso providing a much leaner effect.  This is very beneficial for tight fitting clothes or gowns.

The longline posture bra version has the same general look and tight fit, but is usually enhanced with the criss-crossed band support in the back – this helps pull the shoulder blades in and remind you to “sit up”.  Also, many longline posture bras have thicker torso support panels for added support.  The drawback of the extra support panels is that the posture version of this bra is usually not as flattering as the regular longline bras.  It becomes more of a functional bra.

If you decide to look for a longline posture bra, it is important to try it on at a store if possible.  Since the longline covers a lot more body area, you want to make sure you get a good fit – something relatively snug but comfortable.  Ideally, bring along a top with a similar fabric or fit to what you will be wearing over the posture bra.

One of the most popular longline posture bras we have seen is the Exquisite Form Women’s Original Longline Posture Bra 7565.  It is available at some retail stores as well as many online etailers.

In summary, the longline posture bras are quite effective due to their design – however, they often are not as flattering as normal longline bras.
