About the Product
Hope's Embrace®, our inaugural product, is a cute and comfortable brace undershirt, worn under a scoliosis brace to prevent chafing and perspiration. It is also designed to help boost the confidence and brace compliance of girls in their adolescent and teen years.
About the Company
Our mission is to empower youth with idiopathic scoliosis by boosting confidence, self-esteem, and brace compliance.
Hope's Closet® was first to market with Cute and Comfortable Clothing for Scoliosis Brace Wearers.
Hope’s Closet was founded in 2012 because my daughter, Hope, couldn’t and wouldn’t wear any of the available undershirts on the market under her Scoliosis brace. Brace shirts offered by orthotists and orthopedic supply companies were too drab and clinical looking. So, we tried lots of tank tops offered by popular girls’ retail stores. If we got lucky and found a shirt long enough to go under the brace, Hope would either sweat in that shirt, or get abrasions under her armpits because the undershirt holes were cut too low. Plus, none of the shirts held up against Hope’s brace or our laundry machine. After many frustrating trips to the mall and spending hundreds of dollars on shirts that simply did not work, Hope asked me why no one had designed a cute and comfortable shirt specifically to go under a Scoliosis brace. My daughter’s question was the seed that launched Hope’s Closet®. A brace shirt brand specifically for Scoliosis bracing that is known for its unique design and product features, which combine fashion with function. In the five plus years that
we’ve been selling our Hope’s Embrace® undershirts, we’ve been told that our shirts have helped many children to meet their brace wear compliance hours. As Hope said, “I may not have control over how many hours I have to wear my brace, but at least I can make it more comfortable by wearing the right shirt under it!”
The Hope’s Embrace®™ tank top has not only earned the endorsement of Curvy Girls, the leading international support group for teens with scoliosis, but is endorsed by highly respected physicians, researchers, orthotists and physical therapists.
