Default Curve change with brace

It was always my understanding that the boston brace would either stop a curve from progressing, slow down the progression or make no difference at all. I was recently surprised that having only worn the brace for six months or so that my daughters curve went from 34degrees to 21degrees. The orthatist thinks that maybe it was partially postural when at 34degrees and having worn the brace tightly and for recommended hours a day has her standing straighter. Has anyone else had results like this? We are still having to brace (getting measured for a new one in 2 weeks) and will have next x ray in Jan, so it will be interesting to see.
