    Hi Big Blue Frog,

    My dd has been wearing a TSLO for 5 months now. She is supposed to wear her brace 23 hrs/day, but because she dances competively, it is more like 20 hrs/day. She just had her...

    I do assume bracing works while it is working. If dd went in tomorrow and had progressed, I'd assume it wasn't working. The literature doesn't sway me in either direction but I do read a lot of the...

    I want to clarify that statement. I would consider it a success(not in the clinical definition of successful bracing, but for her specific needs) if it holds her curves until she is done growing...

    What about my daughter's surgeon who recommended bracing? Is he not as smart as the doctor's who disagree?

    I don't get where all the hostility to the OP is coming from. Why this has become an...

    Hi Catinhat,
    My dd has had her brace for a little over a month now. Her curves were very close to your daughter's when she was first diaganosed(30*, 19*). We didn't brace then and she progressed...

    The denim shorts we bought her are stretchy and fit closely to the legs, but are easy to button over the brace. The problem with Jr tops is they are cut smaller than kids clothes so they are fitted...

    Hi Mama Bear,

    My daughter is 11 and just got her Boston brace last Friday. Her brace also goes midway down her bottom but sits at her hips in the front. We are having a hard time finding clothes that conceal the...

    My friend told me to go to JCPenney's and go to the PLUS sizes and try on clothes there. The best articles of clothing or baby-doll tops and stretchy-ish pants.

    Hey. It's Michele again. That heat rash will go away soon. It is pretty common to have a heat rash because your brace is so tight and you sweat under it. Ask your mom to treat it with some type of...

    Thanks Concerned Dad. This, of course, was what I feared would happen with the wait and watch approach. But, the doctor really didn't think it would progress too much and he did say that he...

    As it stands, the night time brace is not even an option now. We went in today and her curve has progressed 10 degrees in 6 months. Her top curve is now 40 degrees :eek:! The doctor said the night...
