Pelham And Strutt Posture Improving Undershirts

Pelham and Strutt aims to help you stand taller and eliminate your back pain with their line of compression-wear undershirts and shapers for men and women.

Although not new on the shapewear scene, I recently learned about the UK-based company via a DailyMail article about the company’s posture improving gear.

On the surface, the gear looks similar to other popular men’s shapewear gear, but instead focusing on the slimming/shaping aspect, Pelham and Strutt’s upper-wear items (tops) have a technical design aimed at posture improvement.

    • heya t — good to hear from you and thanks for your question!

      yes, i tried the pelham & strutt posture improving compression/shapewear undershirt a long time ago.

      can’t really say that it improved my posture, but it performed reasonably well in the shaping area.

      if i recall correctly, i believe equmen had slightly better control and pulled my shoulders back some, but again, that was many years ago when i first wrote this article.

      since then, equmen went out of business due to the death of the founder, and pelham & strutt may have improved their product since then.

      though, in looking at the pelham & strutt website, they are discounting their women’s products by 80% and their men’s selection is rather limited.

      maybe they’re restocking — or maybe they are winding their operations down. i really couldn’t tell you.

      are you looking for posture improving undershirts, or simply men’s shapewear?

      • A combination of both would be nice but primarily back support.

        I’m an ER nurse so very busy at work and a back brace is just too bulky.

      • for posture, your best bet is checking out posture shirts/undershirts like the ones from evidence based apparel (eba) & intelliskin.

        you can do the following search on my site to learn more:

        i have both eba and intelliskin and they’re pretty much identical in function.

        that doesn’t really surprise me because one of the original doctors from eba left and created intelliskin (:

        you do get a little smoothing too which is kinda nice.

        outside of that, if you really want to focus on posture, there are some low-profile posture bands on amazon that you may want to take a look at:

        hope that helps!
