I need help with current, ongoing bouts of back pain and of course I'm interested in preventing future episodes of back pain. I've often wondered if compression tops would help and I've tried quite a few. One of the things I've realized with compression tops is that the quality a brand starts off with is very rarely maintained, especially the quality of the material used, or the product is discontinued so you can't buy it anymore.
I have purchased a few body shapers in the past and found many are uncomfortable and just plain poor quality. Not this one! I am very pleased with the feel, I can wear it all day and no one can even tell. It does fit on the small side so maybe go 1 size larger when ordering.
I bought the appropriate size according to the chart, and the first time getting it on took a while and a pair of pliers, but I'm sure as all these do after some regular wearing it'll loosen a bit. Just because of the struggle to get it on the first time I plan on using it more as I continue to drop weight, and then I'm sure it'll be more comfortable as a regular use garment. I love the zipper which in many shirts hide the hook system, unlike the last couple of compression garments I tried.
I ordered the TAILONG Men Compression Shirt/Tank Top primarily for back support to wear while I play sports (soccer, mainly). I have moderate scoliosis and have a spine that curves to the side. As a result, I have suffered from varous degrees of back pain throughout most of my adolescent and adult life. I've always been caught up in that vicious cycle of 'take off the weight to ease the pressure off the back and knees,' but when you put on weight you experience so much pain so you can't exercise and then you put on even more weight, etc, etc. Plus, I work long hours and end up eating late in spite of my best (sporadic) efforts. Plus, I hate exercising. I'm one of those who much prefers to play sports (soccer and table tennis/ping pong mostly) rather than go to the gym, lift weights, or even jogging.
