    Hey Rosebud,
    I know - Milwaukee braces for sure cause a lot of wear on clothes. I don't know about the Boston brace particularly, but from my Milwaukee brace days I constantly had to buy little bigger jeans and shirts because of my brace. Then, the plastic on the brace made little white lines on the jeans when I sat down and it became tighter. But, we do what we have to and just move on I guess. The brace really is a good thing - I can't stress that enough. I'm sorry it's "such a pain" for you, I know. But, please stick with it. If it keeps you from having to have surgery, it will be well worth it. Believe me.

    Hi Rosebud,

    Please know that all are welcome on this forum, but have you checked out the Spinekids website? It is a forum very similar to this one, but on that site it is mostly kids/teens posting whereas this one is mostly adults posting. You'll find a few kids posting on NSF, but not many.

    Hi Rosebud9,

    Some kids wear a camisole over their brace to help protect their clothes from the brace.

    wears on us too, wore out sweat pants and jeans.

    I tried to make sure no rough edges are on it. And a T-shirt over it. A special car chair sport to avoid wear on the car upholstery
