Slouching Is In Again

Have the starlets been forgetting their skim milk? Many are hunching over as if osteoporosis has set in 30 years early. Is an unhealthy bone structure the new it item?

Have the starlets been forgetting their skim milk? As Trend de la Creme aptly points out, many are hunching over as if osteoporosis has set in 30 years early. Why is this? Is an unhealthy bone structure the new it item? Does the slouch really make your collarbones protrude that much more (this is why I believe they're doing it). Either way, it's not a good idea, and these ladies need to keep tabs on where their shoulders are at all times.

May we suggest the iPosture - a handy new device that detects when your body is slouching, emitting a series of subtle vibrations to let you know it's time to straighten up. The device can be worn three ways: as a necklace, attached to your bra strap, or adhered to your skin below the collarbone. I found myself hyperextending my back at first, but after a while, I relaxed and it definitely corrected me during long, hunched over hours in front of the computer.
