    Hey I'm Syd ,
    I've never had the brace because it was a little to late for me with my curve but my friend has a brace & she said it can get uncomfortable at times but it's just mostly annoying to her haha! It's not all bad using the brace because in the end it will help ya in the long run(: Good luck with everything! & i hope I helped a tad! Sorry I didn't know much! Have a nice day!

    Sincerly,
    Syd(:
