Blog: Say goodbye to posture problems

Katie Smith | 27 January 2014

Problems with posture are set to be a thing of the past, with the introduction of a T-shirt designed to make the wearer stand tall.

So how does it work? According to UpCouture, the French fashion firm behind the product, bands of elastic film sewn into the upper section of the top apply light pressure to remind the wearer to stand with his or her shoulders back. 

The company made more than 30 various prototypes before the final product was reached. 

The manufacturing process comprises several steps, including sewing and bonding together an extra-thin film to the garment.

The bonded fabric is then cut into five specific shapes for the stress points of the T-shirt. The final garment is assembled layer by layer, with the shapes placed on the appropriate parts of the T-shirt and then bonded together.

But this dream posture comes at a cost. Each T-shirt is priced at GBP105 (US$172.50), and is available in a range of sizes, colours and styles for men and women.
