    Well I'd suggest you wear layers, I start gym in a week and we have connectime (15 minute home room) aftr gym hour luckily that i can cool off, but I wuld say wear a tanktop or tshirt that covers it and bring a sweatshirt for when u cool off (if u do) otherwise drink water! I have tons of issues with not drinking enuff water which may add to my heat! best wishes~

    oh and btw, i adj. mine on my own and i went to get my first xray 2day, and all of my curves are exactly within 1-2 degreees of each other..so i guess my pads arent placed wrong...but thats just me :-\

    A Story

    It may seem like people will make fun of you, but really, they won't.
    I got my TLSO brace about 7 months ago. The first day that I wore it to school, one kid said to me "what's up, football player?!" I cried, and I was really upset because nobody else at my school has one. He did not realize that I had a brace, and when he found out he came and apologized. All of the popular girls at my school thought it was so cool, and they wanted to try it on! I found it so weird that nobody was picking on me, or laughing at me. Since then, anybody that sees me never notices it, and they're totally used to it! It's pretty neat.
