So I'm 50, 5'10", 185 lbs and I work in the ICU. I have to frequently lift and turn patients that weigh from 250 lbs to 450 lbs. Before I got this support belt my lower back was in constant pain. Since I've been using the belt the back pain is "gone". I expected the belt to help relieve the stress on my lower back from all the lifting I do but I did not expect the back pain to stop completely. I've been using this belt since August 2011 and all I can say is it has been a "God Sent". Now understand I only wear it at work and I only secure it when I'm moving patients. If I'm not moving patients then I keep the belt loose/unstrapped. If you do alot of heavy lifting at work or at home I highly recommend either this or some other kind of support belt. It's truly worth the money.
Update: So its been 5 months since I wrote my review (4/19/12 as I write this) and nothing has changed. I am using the same support belt(talk about getting more than your money's worth) and I still believe it was a "God Sent". Again, if you do any type of heavy lifting or pulling do yourself a big favor and get a support belt. Yes, I get back soreness every now and then but not that back pain that use to tweak my hips to the left and made it hard to function on the job(I know there's some of you who understand that pain).
Update 2/20/14: So I'm going to be 53 in March. Still have the same job and I have this same back support. Still working now as it did when I first bought it. My review has not changed. Talk about getting more than my money's worth. I'm still very happy with this product. I honestly believe if it wasn't for this belt I wouldn't be working where I do now(probably a desk job). I can't say enough about this back support and how much it has helped me at work. One of my best purchases ever...
Update 10/21/15: OK, I'm at work, it's 0230 and I'm bored so here's another update. No changes from previous updates except for now I'm 54. Belt still works as it did from the beginning. I stated this before and I'll state it again, "This was a God Sent". I can't think of anything in my life that has done so much for me and only cost me 16 bucks. Oh, patients jumping out of bed. Gota go...
Update 1/12/2018 I still have my original support belt I bought over 7 years ago. I seriously got more than my monies worth. I still believe this belt was a "God Sent". So I'm buying another support belt not because the original has worn out, still looks and works like new, but because I have put on 15 lbs over the years. So I'm going one size up. Turning 58 and still doing the same type of work. I don't know what else to say. Best money I've ever spent on myself. Great product. If your looking, don't hesitate, buy it.

Doesn't seem to work for overweight person2016年10月12日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I purchase this for my husband because we walk every night after dinner, but he is having so much back pain that it is getting difficult for him to continue this routine. It could be because my husband is just too large, but this did not make a difference. He is 6' and weight 320 lbs. I might have been expecting too much to hope that this would help alleviate the pain. It would be nice if it help even a little, but it did nothing. The quality of belt does seem to be very nice though and I can see how it might help someone that has back pain but is not overweight. By the way, we did make sure it was on correctly and also tried putting the belt on higher than belly button and much lower than belly button. Nothing changed the fact that he still had back pain when walking.
Buy two so you have one when/where you need it.2015年10月20日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I have a 46" waist and the XL is the correct size for me. I ended up buying several of these ... they are that good. Just the right amount of hold and support, and comfortable to wear. I tossed the shoulder straps ... the are not needed. You feel better and more confident as soon as you put it on. I routinely use this back support for outside chores, mowing, garage work, and other activities that require me to be moving, bending and lifting. I keep one in the truck, garage, and in my travel bag just in case I get into a situation where I need to help out with some physical effort, like changing a tire or whatever comes up. I give them to my buddies also, and they really grow to appreciate them. Inexpensive, very well made, comfortable, and durable. Very good product.
Awesome!2018年9月4日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Fits well, easy to use and put on. Doesn't fold-over where my fat belly curves, stays in place even when bending over. Fits as expected with even compression.

I bought the Extra Large because I am 6'4" tall with about a 38" waist. The fit is excellent on the suspenders with about 6" to spare if I was taller. The waist size is perfect to the point that if I lost 2" off my waist, I would be buying a Large as well, since the elastic velcro support adjusters are touching each other, so if you have a 36" waist, I would recommend the Large model. The brace is very effective, and helping me greatly. I have worn it to sleep in and all day long with comfort. 2 days now and no discomfort at all, works well for my Lordosis (no curve to my lower spine). It is putting my spine into a curve which is helping me with leg pain, sciatica, and the 5 herniated discs. 5 Stars.
