My name is Charlotte and I was diagnosed with scoliosis at age ten. From the beginning, the most difficult part of having a brace was not wearing it, but instead, finding something to fit it in. Right away after I received my first back brace, I noticed this problem on the plane ride back home. On the dreadful 5 hour long plane, when I got uncomfortable, there was no where to store the brace, nothing was big enough. During gym class at school, I was forced to hide my back brace in the principle's office so the other kids did not know about it. So, with this problem in mind, I have since been unsuccessful in finding a remedy. So, for this reason, I created embrace bags. Embrace bags are trendy bags, specifically designed to conceal one’s back brace. By removing the discomfort of being insecure about one’s brace showing to the public, embrace bags aid in boosting self-esteem and confidence. Ever since I started using this bag for my brace, not only did I suddenly feel secure but also others around me who did not own braces began to ask where they could get a bag for themselves.
Our mission is to provide insecure scoliosis patients with the remedy for hiding their bulky back braces, in a trendy fashion. Simultaneously, these bags will empower young patients to carry their braces with courage, pride and style, now unafraid of others noticing their braces.
