I've been wearing it for short periods of time for 2 days now. Pros: really good back support (felt like instant relief for my lower back issues); does help me sit straighter; not too uncomfortable for shorter periods of time (30 min - 90 min). Cons: tricky to get on (lots of velcro and ties, like a straightjacket sans sleeves); no bending over, must bend with your legs. Overall: I'd recommend it as a good trainer to help you get your posture in shape.
Excellent for low back support. This is my second purchase.
Excellent support!! Bought it for a friend who feels the back support belt very comfortable and that adjusts great to the body.
Ordered this after having fibroid myectomy. This little gem was an absolute must for my recovery!! Nowadays I use it as a waist trimmer. Lol. Works well both ways!! I don't sleep in it but doing chores or something around the house it gives me good abdominal and back support.
This item is well made. I've purchased them before and they are quite durable. They are machine washable but I recommend air drying. They provide some lower back support as well as abdominal support. After losing seventy pounds (from 295 lbs down to 225 lbs) I needed some support in the area above the hips and this does the trick. The twelve inch wide belt doesn't fold over on itself like the nine inch ones will. So it is worth spending a little extra money to get the wider belt. It has a slimming effect, like a corset and I like the way it fits when wearing a suit jacket and dress pants. I would recommend this for people in similar situations.
