does this sometimes happen to you when you put a shirt on and u suddenly see the whole(s) from your brace? i hate when it happens to me :mad: .. I once tried to cover the hole on my brace with cloth and then put the shirt on but you can still see it... yesturday i went with a shirt and i suddenly felt very embarressed since you could've seen the brace just by the holes.. does anybody understand me?? is there a way you know how u can cover it?

well, what i usually do is get a tank and then put my shirt over it.

it works for me atleast. what type of shirts are you wearing?

The holes in your clothes are probably caused by screws or other metal on your brace. This used to happen all the time to David.

I suggest that you find the part of the brace making the hole - probably a screw or something - and cover it with moleskin - which you can buy at any drugstore. It can be cut into pieces to fit over the screws. I did this and it took a LOT longer for the brace to wear a hole through David's clothes.

Good luck,

also, you know how people wear a tank then wear their shirt but roll up the shirt and tie it in the back with a hairtie? i do that so i can still wear the shirt. =]

When I wear my brace (Boston Brace) I try to wear more loose shirts so that you can tell about the holes and bumps, also avoid really starch white shirts they can sometimes be a bit see-through.

katie,
thanks for replying.. as you said.. i also wear kind of loose shirts as they are the most "non-see through" shirts. About wearing white shirts: I dont have any white shirts as they are the most see- through shirts for me.. the one think i look for when i buy shirts is that they are not made of thin fabric.
Thanks for taking ur time and replying =]]

I agree with Katie, you should wear loose shirts.
