Good posture has many benefits, from strengthening your back to helping you look taller and slimmer. With this in mind, and the help and advice of the British Chiropractic Association, we’ve developed Perfect Poise lingerie – the latestÂ in a long line of exclusive productÂ innovations at M&S.
The Perfect Poise range ofÂ bras, knickers and shapewear has been specifically designed to increase awareness of good posture by supporting you in key areas.Â The braÂ and body incorporate specially-designed back panels which sit across the centre of the shoulders. This adds support which encourages the wearer to keep their shoulders back and avoid slouching. With seam-free cups you can also expect a smooth silhouette so you can wear these pieces under everyday clothing. The bra isÂ available in sizes 34BÂ to 40E and the bodyÂ is available fromÂ 34B to 38DD.
The Tummy Control Knickers from this range have been specifically designed to encourage the right posture by supporting the lower back. They’re also â€˜NoÂ VPL’Â Â and feature our ‘Stay in Placeâ€™ technology for enhanced comfort and security, and areÂ available in sizes 8-22.
Wearer trials are really important to us in lingerie, and on this newÂ range we carried out an independent test of over 100 women. We’re happy to say thatÂ 86.9% of those tested felt these products gave support to their back, which is a great reason to give them a try.
We’ve also linked up with the British Chiropractic association to produce a special swing ticket attached to each product to emphasise the importance of looking after your back. We can all find ourselves slouching or hunched over a desk but keep your back in mind, because if you treat it wellÂ you’llÂ be more likely toÂ walk taller, and look and feel better too.
Top tips for looking after your back:
- Imagine a plumb line hanging from your ear through your shoulder down to your hip, knee and ankle. This should help straighten you up when standing
- Itâ€™s important to have your spine supported when youâ€™re sitting down, with your hips slightly higher than your knees. The plumb line should hang from your ear through your shoulder and hip
- In bed, try sleeping on your side, as this puts less physical stress on your back than being on your front. Take it slowly when you first get up – try some gentle stretches.
