Imbrace is a fashionable alternative to ease recurring low back pain in female millennials, arising from non-specific causes. It is directed at enabling them to perform activities in environments outside of their homes. Reinvigorating the traditional practice of tailoring and custom-fit clothing, Imbrace allows female millennials to create their style through an online configurator to bring their design to life. This paper describes the research and process of creation behind the project Imbrace.
