Thus Summer Switch, too, may be considered a modern retelling of Vice Versa

This leaves Boris, who has essentially learned his lesson without suffering for his mistakes, blubbering with joy - but it's poor reward for readers who have taken in all the cheap crises and social insensitivity of Freaky Friday without.

I had a breast lift and a reduction. I was a 34 DD and went to and a cup B. I ordered this size 36. It fit ok a little big. I should it get a size either 32 or a 34. My breast went down little by little. But this was very comfortable a great for my breast. I whish it that it could come without the sleeves for the arms. I went and order other brand without the sleeves. But , I love this products. But, it great to wear and to sleep.

I have a confession to make: I do not wear these while driving around in a fur coat. I don't actually own a car or a fur coat.

I do wear them in my freezing cold office at night and around town all winter, though. Warm, well made and look, feel and smell great! I love these arm warmers so much that when I thought I lost them, I immediately re-ordered.

Compared to products sold at retail in the US, the sizes run a bit small up the arm. I'm pretty tiny and love that these actually fit me very well, but I'm not sure they'd be comfortable higher up the arm on someone with a larger frame. If knee-high boots are usually at all snug on you, these might not work. They're exactly as long on me as in the picture.

This back support has really helped me :very comfortable, soft, easy to adjust and put on by myself . Always had a problem slouching and wanted to change that . It's the first step and it's working great so far. After taking it off, I noticed my shoulders seem to remain straight. I try to wear it as long as I can and even while exercising.

Most comfortable posture brace that I have used to tackle my back pain. Far superior to the ones that are very slim or the large ones that wrap around your waist. I am using it on top of my undergarment as I found this most comfortable and then put a dress shirt on for work. It is pretty unobtrusive. You mainly feel it when your shoulders start to slump which is what you want so you get accustomed to straightening your back. Also used it on top of my shirt while exercising, the seams are reflective which is a nice feature when going for walks at night. I felt the difference in my posture from the moment I put it on and look forward to experiencing the long-term effects. The material seems durable and feels very breathable. The instructions for wearing the posture brace are clear too but putting it on and adjusting the straps is straightforward anyhow. Very pleased with this purchase!

I work in front of computer all day and my posture is really bad so I decided to give it a try on back posture corrector.
The instruction can be little confusing because it only has four photos but once you understand it it's really easy to put on.
I like the type of sticky they attached to this because doesn't stick on my hair or my clothes. But I wish sticky length was a bit longer for petite person like me.
I'm wearing this as I write this review. Good price!
My doctor recommended this after my recent car accident which messed up my back. I thought it would be funny looking and uncomfortable. However this has been a life saver. It helps me sit perfectly so the pressure isn’t placed wrong in my back. I wear under my sweaters and you can’t tell it’s even there.

The padding makes this comfortable and the straps are long enough to adjust without getting yourself into a pretzel. This is the most comfortable corrector I've tried and the added rubber band lets you do some exercises to help. I don't find posture correctors comfortable as my arms go numb, but I feel I resist the correction they are supposed to do.
