Curving at the top

I have a daughter that is 9 and she is curving at the top..what we can say is hunched

I remind her all the time..walk straight or sit straight but it seems that it comes naturally.

It is not bad now but I fear what might happen later.

I know that in the past there was a vest that could be used
a posture vest or something like that.

Where can I get that please...or is there any other

I am not on medical aid so I cannot buy something expensive

Hi Susan - best to have your daughter examined first. She may need more than a device to straighten her up -
