Donnie Thompson Casual Bowtie

Developed by powerlifting legend Donnie Thompson and Spud Inc., the Casual Bowtie is a simple accessory for everyday life, helping to counteract the slouched posture that often develops when working at a computer, driving, or using a cell phone. Made from a softer material than the Thompson Formal Bowtie, this design is optimized for wearing over long periods of time as you go about your day. The webbing harness is light and comfortable and doesn’t encumber movement. It works by subtly encouraging sustained upright posture, easing tension on the muscles behind the shoulders and also applying light compression to the bicep tendons.

By wearing the Casual Bowtie on a regular basis, the user can create a sense of muscle memory, as the brain will start instructing better posture long after the bowtie is removed. This can have a huge impact on reducing the problems of shoulder pain and tight pecs, and limiting the risk of more serious injuries down the road.

You can track your package each step of the way using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

Donnie Thompson Casual Bowtie is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uncomfortable but in a good way As a Powerlifter and BJJ player posture is a hugely important thing that gets overlooked. I also drive a lot for work so I wear it under my scrubs and as part of my warm up at the gym. Every chest day, every pulling back day I have my Bow tie on for all warm up sets. This thing is Amazing! Just stiff enough to do the job and just thin enough to wear under my scrubs and my hoodie. The biggest change I have noticed is that because my posture has improved I have better power overhead. This is a great investment if you want Better posture. Especially if you love to bench press! Five stars!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bowtie Feels good wearing it, although I don't think it is helping my posture; which was the reason for buying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant Back Pain Relief I am US Veteran who has suffered from multiple injuries on active duty and several car accidents. I have managed to work my way back but always seem to have nagging back pain that just doesn't go away until today. My Donnie Thompson Casual Bowtie take a lot of pressure off my upper back and prevents me from slouching. Thank you!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit at all I'm 205 pounds and bought the L size as per the sizing chart. Feels awful, pushing my neck forward, and is definitely a size too small. Knew I should've bought the XL since I wear XL shirts. Smh. Was looking forward to this too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from To small I am 181 cm tall and my weight is 95 kg and I have the feeling that it is too small for me because it is very tight and my arms are constricting

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Bought this about a month ago to use for when I’m at work or driving long trips. Even just around the house or at the gym. Great way to fix your posture

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy posture control We all need this product to combat our rounded forward posture from sitting, working at desks, living on our phones. It helps to wear it while doing those activities, but more importantly, it helps the shoulders stay in proper position when lifting weights. this is key to avoiding injury or while coming back from injury.
