We offer many different braces that can help to support your lower back. Additional weight increases the amount of strain that is put on the back. One of our most common back braces is the bariatric back brace that goes all the way up to size 6XL and fits hip circumferences up to 68 inches. The brace helps to diminish lower back pain that associated with weight. It is composed of a high-quality elastic that is comfortable and breathable. Malleable stays also help with a comfortable fit as they prevent the back belt from rolling or bunching up when wearing.
A similar product that also features support and compression is the bariatric low back support belt. This back brace can help with numerous sources of low-back pain, including strains of the lumbar back or lumbar muscle weakness.
Another one of our popular plus size back braces is the back pain relief compression brace. This plus size lumbar back brace in black is composed of a mix of neoprene and elastic material and can be secured with a simple contact Velcro closure. This obese back brace comes with pockets that can hold gel pack inserts for heat or cold therapy or a pressure pad for additional compression.
This lower back pain brace features a simple corset design. It takes just seconds to adjust the compression that the back brace applies, so one can easily transition from standing to sitting and the like. A nylon mesh side panel improves the breathability of this lower back support wrap for obese individuals.
Extra Large Posture Corrective Brace for Men & Women
Our adjustable plus size posture corrector is big enough to fit chest circumferences 34” and up. It is also adjustable in the front so you can apply and adjust it easily as you need and the front is completely free from constraint. Carrying excess weight can lead to poor posture and cause back, shoulder, and even spine pain. This big and tall posture brace helps to pull your shoulders back into a proper posture position. Practicing good posture will help you to receive increased oxygen levels which in turn can eliminate fatigue and migraines. This is because when you are slouched over, your body squeezes your lungs, making them smaller and reducing your breathing volume.
Additionally, wearing a posture brace can help to make you look slimmer. Read this blog post to see why.
