    Shirts with hoods are great. You can even find short sleeve shirts with hoods out these days.

    Red face clothing tips

    Hi, am Nicole and I have scoliosis. Im sorry this post is so late I just became a member and am trying to find someone to talk to on here but no one likeuses the website any more, but anyway here are some tips.

    - Where loose bigger shirts that arent to big on top.

    - During the summer where shorts that are tight up top so they wont droop down.

    -if you are cold but hot during the winter throw your favorite sweatshirt on.

    If you have any more questions you can ask because ive had scoliosis for like 3 or 2 years now or more.
