Estoy intentando encontrar el nombre de este corsé en inglés, no parece haber resultados con Swain brace, pero sí con el resto de corsés que busco.

Quedo pendiente.

Explanation:
It's Swan, not Swain, and it only seems to be used in Spain. Maybe it is a Spanish brand. I can't find anything for swan brace or corset, so it might be better to say what it is.

I think you are right about Swain/Swan. It is probably named after its inventor and Swain is a surname. I still can't find it in English though, seems to be used in Spain mainly.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Gracias, Marie. Yo he encontrado TLSO también, pero hay varios tipos de corsé que hacen las veces de TLSO y este es uno de los tipos. En español es Swain o Swan. La médica que lo ha escrito se refiere a ellos siempre como Swain incluso como hablamos. En español la verdad es que también hay muy pocos resultados, pero he visto uno en francés. Voy a comentarle. Mil gracias :).
