Fashion with a Brace

Post by Em(brace) »

Hey y’all

Em here-

So, I’m getting my brace February 10th and wanted some fashion advice plus share some advice I found. Need to prepare for shopping. 😀 Let me know if you have any advice for bracing whatsoever! :)

I've found that jeggings are also great for braces! Usually the waistband is stretchy enough to go over compared to normal jeans (which I've completely ditched by now, but jeggings are a great sub!) I do agree with tips, I've definitely had to figure a lot of those out & realize that I can't wear certain things that I really like, so racking up clothes I wanna wear post brace lol

Ok cool! I’ll look for some jeggings! But assuming that I should wait to go shopping until I get my brace so I can make sure it works?

Yeah, definitely try clothes that you already have once you get the brace, & ID anything that you'd like/are missing/doesn't work anymore so that you can confirm!

I think flowy shirts go pretty well with your brace, because I've found that my brace always gave me kind of a "boxy" look that I don't always love, but for others it's really hard to notice, so yeah. Jegging and pants with a stretchy waist are good for me also.
