Very useful back support,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Neoprene Double Pull Lumbar Brace - Large (Personal Care)
If I take care of my back I have no trouble but I need some support if I am going to be lifting stuff. I need something to just hold the lower back, muscles and structure correctly in place. I have been using a simple neoprene wrap round support but this is worn and needed replacing. This new belt does the same but is better. It is in two parts - a wide neoprene partially elasticated wrap round. That is nice and wide and also has some useful vertical 'whale bones' either side of the spine. My waist diameter at top of pelvic bone is 36" the belt (marked large) is 42" long and needs to overlap at ends to fasten by means of its continuous Velcro type facings. Belt is 9" wide and thus covers a good depth of the lumbar region. There is also a stronger elasticated overlay belt which separately pulls to your own tensioning and secures to the same large Velcro facings of the underlying belt. There is therefore a large range of fit and tension that you can adjust to suit needs. This works very well for me. The whole thing is not cumbersome and it is quite light and sufficiently flexible to make it comfortable to wear and work in. Obviously not as comfortable and flexible as having a sound back and not having to wear a belt at all! I find it easy to put on and wear and I have not had any back problem since. Very good value and a well made basic support belt for everyday relatively light uses. I do not have any major back problem such as slipped disk - this belt may be inadequate for that or for more significant such back problems.
