Our back sometimes play us tricks. Sometimes it might need help to stand straight or to grow without twisting, and the spine may need to be sustained for some time, as a plant may need a guardian. It is then called an orthopedic corset. But at the time where there is desire to please, to be good in sneakers, having more freedom… what it to provoke to wear this armor of plastic and foam ?
What is a corset?
We won’t discuss here the aesthetic corset, underwear of our grandmothers arrears, which was a torture and fashion accessory used for nothing else that compress the size to make it more (too) fine; but the Orthopedic corset, medical device necessary to avoid problems of back sometimes requiring heavy surgery.
The Orthopedic corset is custom made. It is usually ‘ twisted ‘, since it must offset the scoliosis (twisting of the spine). It is made of plastic, with the foam inside. Underneath, to wear a Jersey of specific body in jersey without seams (a t-shirt with short sleeves), to protect the skin.
For girls, we can find also a hole for the chest even for those who haven’t yet because we don’t compress this area growing.
Some models can be customized and you can choose a color, a pattern on the plastic (a print jeans, leather, or even hearts…). Looking good the undershirt he can also have a different color than the conventional white or beige.
A new body
Adaptation to the corset can be difficult and it may take a little time so that it becomes an ally. When you put on this big ‘ thing ‘ for the first time, it feels often very steep and we must relearn to do a whole bunch of gestures like picking up her pencil on the floor or make laces by bending the knees.
As if it was wearing a Shell or armor, the shape of our body such that others see is changed. Find clothes that go us is often a puzzle. “We ask lots of questions:”is what I want to show or hide my corset? How to be comfortable but all the same cool or sexy? How does not get too hot? Can I please someone with it?«» …
In full adolescence, when you have want to be like everyone else, we’re a little evil in her skin these issues can seal us the morale. But if we recall that the corset is a medical device that is essential for our good health then you have to accept this bulky shell and why not make an ally, a friend of everyday that helps us grow, grow.
My corset: an asset
The look that others will wear is often the biggest fear of teenagers who wear a corset. Often want to then hide (under loose clothing for example), be as discreet as possible. But as you know more we try to hide something most others are curious and more attention!
Your brace you see or we guess. So as to assume it, and without showing all the time (if you have not envy) when a small scratch exceeds, tell yourself that it’s not so bad.
If for some, the corset will be part of their daily life, for the most part is only a (bad) time to spend.
Often talk, explain, tell his story and even offer to teachers to approach this subject in the classroom is a way of silencing the misunderstandings (and gossip) and attract a lot of goodwill. School facilities may be provided and the implementation of a PAI (project of home personal) can be offered to you in order to make your time more enjoyable school. And if the handsome or the bomb in your class you offering to help you to carry your bag… let the.
Finally, if in your school you’re the alone in wearing a corset is not as long as you’re the teenager alone in the world to be spent there. Internet contains many sites of mutual aid and youth forums that will give you their daily tips. And why not start a new topic on the wire health youth forum or join the existing discussions on the subject: you want to play!
