FAQ

Where is Formewear® manufactured?

We believe in having a positive and enriching impact on the community, which is why all of our products are manufactured at home in Southern California. We want to foster great relationships with our vendors, support for our community and maintain excellent quality control by staying local.

Many of our facilities utilize clean energy and we have incorporated biodegradable elements into our packaging.

When should I wear Formewear?

Formewear is designed to be worn daily and can enhance your daily activities, from your desk to your workout. The technology within Formewear is seamless and powerful, delivering effective posture correction in a high performance garment that looks just like normal activewear.

How does wearing Formewear improve my posture?

You will notice an immediate difference in your posture when you first put on Formewear. However, with daily, regular wear, your body will develop muscle memory to restore ideal posture without conscious effort. Ultimately, the goal of Formewear is to create a biomechanical awareness of your body’s alignment, so that it keeps you in alignment subconsciously much like walking or breathing. Forme is about redefining your standard of performance, and redefining the basic form of you.

How do the clothes fit? What size should I buy?

We suggest purchasing true-to-size, but if you want more information before making a decision, please check out our sizing guide, as well as on each product page. Please remember: the items are designed to be form-fitting, but should not be uncomfortable!

Is there a specific way to care for the item(s)?

Take good care of your Formewear, and it’ll take good care of you. We recommend washing the garments on cold and air drying them. Avoid using fabric softener or dryer sheets, as they can inhibit Formewear’s moisture-wicking and UV protective quality, as well as break down the fibers that make them stretchy and firm.

What are the products made of?

Our garments are made from various blends of spandex, polyester, lyocell, and nylon.

How will Formewear correct my posture?

Formewear is designed to naturally teach the wearer’s body and musculature what good posture feels like, allowing the shoulders to rotate back and down, while opening the chest and hips. This change in posture lengthens the spine, while promoting better blood and oxygen flow to the brain.

What is FormeTech?

This technology is the secret sauce behind our products and allows them to work effectively without being constricting or uncomfortable. FormeTech is a patented system of lightweight tensile materials, deployed in a variety of proprietary applications to deliver focused tension on the body to retrain muscles, motivate realignment, and support joints. 

Formewear is the first-ever line of apparel that uses this technology to correctly re-align the body for perfect posture. 

How do these shirts differ from other products on the market?

We prioritized a natural look and feel to the products, so that they are able to be worn daily without the restriction of braces, wiring, or being oppressively tight. As you move out of the “good posture” range, the shirt will begin to gently tug on your shoulders. This tug is not enough on its own to pull you back or lock you in place. Instead, the muscles of your back have to react and naturally pull you back into the ideal posture position. In this way, your body "learns” good posture through positive muscle memory, as opposed to depending on a strap or brace that ends up atrophying the muscles by preventing them from working on their own.

Who needs Formewear?

Everyone! Our products are great for people who spend time on their cell phones or computers by keeping them upright, while preventing neck and back tension. For active athletes or people in a physical therapy program, our clothing can provide outstanding support as well as allow optimal air flow during training. For healthcare professionals and frontline workers who spend hours upon hours bent over their patients, our product reminds them to care for themselves too. Elderly who have trouble standing straight are finding our products to be more comfortable and effective than anything else on the market. Asking “who should wear Forme?” is like asking “who should have good posture?” The answer is, “Everyone, including you!”

Why should I care about having good posture?

Medically, there are a slew of reasons to focus on improving posture: better breathing, reduced muscle tension, increased muscle recovery after a workout or physical therapy, taller stance, and potentially fewer tension headaches, to name a few. Moreover, your posture sends a social message. Having great posture, holding your head up high, shows confidence and quietly announces your arrival. Add that to our fashionable styles, and not only will you feel great, you’ll look great!

Will my improved posture habits diminish if I don’t keep wearing Formewear?

You will notice an immediate difference in your posture when you first put on Formewear. However, with daily, regular wear, your body will develop muscle memory to restore your ideal posture without conscious effort. Ultimately, the goal of Formewear is to create a biomechanical awareness of your body’s alignment, so that it keeps you in alignment subconsciously - much like walking or breathing.
