Why Do I Need This Bariatric Back Belt For My Back Pain?
Low back pain is one of the most debilitating and expensive conditions in America. According to ABC News, 80% of Americans will suffer back pain at some point in their lives and this condition costs more than $90 billion each year in terms of lost productivity and days of work.
There are a number of things to blame for chronic or acute lumbar back pain. For example, some include general degeneration of the discs, vertebrae, joints, a sedentary lifestyle, poor posture (especially when sitting), improper lifting form, wearing shoes with overly high heels or carrying a heavy purse can all contribute to lower back pain.
I Have Muscle Strain, Sprain, or Weakness. Will This Brace Help?
Yes! This xl or 4x brace is great for those who are suffering from a muscle strain, sprain, or weakness in their back. Since all of these are very likely to recur, it’s extremely essential to provide your back with the support it needs during the recovery process.
Back muscle strains, sprains, and pulls are caused by many different factors. Some that may make you more prone to such injuries include lifting heavy objects frequently, partaking in high contact sports, having poor posture, and being overweight.
Wearing extra large supports such as this one can help tremendously with your pain. By wearing lumbosacral obesity braces, the pressure or strain that otherwise would be placed on your spine will be relieved. Girdles like this one for back pain, help apply that compression you need to heal your strain, sprain, or muscle pull.
If I’m Oversized, Does This Discreet Brace Fully Support Me?
This brace definitely helps those who are heavy or xlarge as the many closures completely support your belly. This men’s back brace allows you to completely customize the level of compression you’d like. You can adjust it throughout the day depending on what you’re doing or you can tighten it to increase the level of support. If you are overweight, this plus-size back brace for the low back can enable you to partake in a more active lifestyle by supporting the lumbar back and applying compression to reduce inflammation that is often the source of pain.
There have been many studies that have shown a correlation between being overweight and lower back pain. The excess weight or fat that is being carried around by a larger individual directly results how much pressure is placed on your spine. The more the weight, the more the strain or work your spine has to endure to keep your body upright. This ultimately leads those individuals prone to many different back conditions from obesity, including moderate or mild back pain.

Good but Plus Size?
I thought I ordered a regular size large, but received a plus size in medium. The brace itself feels good and does relieve my pain. However, I've got it pulled in as far as it will go, so if I lose any weight (and I'm not a "plus" size), I'm guessing the brace will no longer work - it will be too loose. I realize it may have been my fault when ordering but if I have to order the same brace again I will be paying attention and making sure I order the REGULAR (not plus size) brace in large.
Braces for the Large People
The Brace fit my husband perfectly with room left over. He was measured at 58" so we bought the XL.
