Stand against a flat surface (wall, floor, etc) and see how far away your shoulders are from it. That's the amount of bad posture you must correct. Roll your shoulders back until they lie flat on the surface, but make sure to stay relaxed other wise you won't do much. That's where your shoulders should be.<br />
<br />
Now for the first bit you will get back aches as you stretch and use new muscle groupings in your back, but it's just like strengthening anything else: you have to keep at it.

LIke everyone will probably say. Posture exercises. Make a conscience effort to hold your shoulders back a bit...this is easier when you are sitting in a high backed chair. Practice holding your chin level, as it's hard to hunch when you hold your chin up. Think about how you sleep and try to sleep on your back. Be conscious of how you walk. If you carry a handbag, you might consider getting one that is made to promote good posture. Perhaps a crossover. <br />
Meanwhile, don't be TOO self conscious about it. It's probably a lot less noticeable than you think. We are our own worst critics.

That exercise that was about holding a book on your head as you walked...that was a bit about straightening the spine, holding the chin up, and the shoulders back a bit. :) Thanks for choosing my answer, and the best of luck.

It's all about posture, Fishees. You've got to practice sitting up pencil straight, shoulder back. Pretend you're a super mawdol. Also... you probably don't look weird in a dress at all. (:

Practise better posture. My friend had the same problem and she switched to more supportive shoes and made a conscious effort to stand/sit up straight during the day. Now her spine is much more aligned. And she looks taller too!
