I wore it a little bit a few months ago, and wasn't happy with it. Recently I dug it out again and gave it another shot. I was a little more comfortable with it this time.
What I found was I couldn't adjust it to be exactly what I needed. It was either too tight or too snug. It did help me keep my back straight, but I found myself pushing my ribs out a little.

While at the studio I wore it for about 2 hours, but I kept it under my shirt (mostly so the little ones didn't constantly ask me why I was wearing a back harness.)
It was subtle enough under the shirt, though a bit itchy once I started sweating. I took it off for my later classes.

It's definitely helpful, but more than forcing your back straight, it acts as a reminder that you're trying to keep your back straight. If all you need is that reminder, this is the product you're looking for. If you need something more.. aggressive... maybe keep shopping around.
