In brief: See below
When slouching, the muscles of the back are stretched to a point where they can no longer do their job of keeping you upright.
If the muscles are not working correctly, most of the pressure of your upper body is transmitted to your spine without the protective function of your muscles. Bottom line: don't sit slouchy!
