While this thread may be better suited to the Body Consciousness forum, I figured posting in this forum might get a better response since apparently a lot of people have dropped shoulders and there are probably a few doctors on this site. What is the usual reason for a dropped shoulder? Is it just posture, anatomy or a result of disease?
it's natural, people are not symmetrical. I have only had 2 clients that did not have a low shoulder and that is over 36 years.
It's probably an issue with your back. I cannot overstate how much good a good osteopath can do for you, when dealing with this and other issues like it. There is no need to be complacent about this.
If it produces breaking under the arm, front and back and it bothers you, then yes. A tailor will add a pad. That will pick up the shoulder and even you out, side to side. If shoulder pads are not your thing, then the sleeve is removed, the shoulder points reduced, armhole resized, sleeve set on the jacket. Now hope your tailor's skill level matched the original workmanship, otherwise one sleeve will look different from the other. Your bill will increase with the second method.
