this depends on the type of brace you are getting

:)if you are getting a boston brace (otherwise known as the low profile brace or underarm brace), I suggest something that isn't soft and that the brace won't tear through. anything would be fine (I know, I have one) :)

:)if you are getting a milwaukee brace, I suggest a turtleneck to hide the metal ring around the neck:)

:)if you are getting a charleston bending brace, that's a night time bracing system that you wouldn't really need to wear anything special (just your PJs):)

:pif you have any more questions, feel free to leave a message on my post:p

For a boston brace, what I would wear is mostly shirts that are the "baby-doll style" because they seemed to flare out right where my brace started and since they aren't tight you can't see the places where the brace sticks out. I found that lower rise pants didn't work too well too because they would sneak there way under the brace witch was uncomfortable, so I wore pants with a higher rise too.

Hope this helps!
