Elastic Back Brace for Sleeping and Daily Use
Constructed of premium-quality soft neoprene and elastic that contour to the shape of your body, this comfortable back support for sleeping provides a great, customized fit for anyone. This nighttime back brace is well suited for alleviating moderate to severe low-back pain, as well as muscle weakness, strain, or instability of the lumbar spine.
Adding to the benefits of this night support includes a pocket that can hold a gel-pack insert for heat or cold therapy (sold separately). This pocket can also hold a pressure pad for additional compression therapy (also sold separately). Heat and ice are great solutions to ease low back pain and reduce inflammation from injury or muscle strains.
The sleeping back support is closed via a contact closure, which means you will not need to excessively twist to secure the brace.
Comfortable Back Brace for Lumbar Pain
The lumbar spine is responsible for supporting the weight of your upper body, which is no easy task—especially when you throw in added stresses like poor posture, improper lifting, wearing high heels, twisting, and more. Not surprisingly, a number of people suffer each year from strains to the muscles of their lumbar spine, instability and other pain-causing injuries to their low-back.
The best approach for lower-back pain relief is typically a multi-faceted one that includes a limited period of rest, physical therapy to strengthen and improve the flexibility of the lumbar spine, education to promote good posture and form, and possibly wearing a brace for low-back support. In some cases, this might include the use of a nighttime compression brace, such as this.
Wearing a back brace at night can also prevent you from causing further damage while sleeping, addressing inflammation and encouraging healing while you rest.
Key Features and Benefits of This Nighttime Back Support Brace
This 9-inch tall, comfortable lumbar support is available in many sizes, fitting average to plus-size and obese men and women. The five best-rated features of this nighttime lumbar support include:
Made of Medical-Grade Elastic and Neoprene
The front and sides of this lumbar support belt are made of a premium elastic material, allowing the brace to stretch and conform to your body. The adjustable elastic material is durable enough for everyday activities, such as walking or exercising. The back side of the brace is composed of soft neoprene, which provides therapeutic warmth for soothing pain relief. This strong yet comfortable brace may also improve your posture by training your low-back muscles and spine to return to their natural alignment.
Holds a Cold / Hot Therapy Gel Pack or Foam Pressure Pad for Added Relief
Back panel has a pocket to hold either a hot or cold therapy gel pack or a pressure pad for added compression (both sold separately). The cooling or heating gel pack helps alleviate symptoms of chronic lower back pain, pulled muscle soreness, post-surgical recovery, arthritis of the spine, swelling, tears, stiffness, spasms, strains, bulging discs, herniated discs, hip pain and more.
Wearing a foam pad with your back brace helps to better stabilize and bring more pressure to the painful area. Providing additional compression and pressure improves blood flow and stimulates tissue repair for comfortable and speedy back-pain relief.
When should you use hot vs. cold therapy?
Cold treatment reduces inflammation by decreasing blood flow. Ice eases discomfort from acute injuries, sprains or strains, muscle soreness, spasms, and swelling. Apply within 48 hours after an injury. Hot therapy promotes blood flow and helps muscles relax. Use for chronic pain, cramping, stiffness, backaches, and arthritis.
Double-Pull Tension Straps Provide Extra Compression and Support
This back support brace features double-pull elastic tension straps in front for additional compression. This compression helps reduce your body’s load on your spine’s lower discs. Easily adjust the straps on by yourself by pulling them out and away from your body until you reach the amount of compression you desire, then wrap around and secure the fasteners. Readjust throughout the day you transition from sitting to standing or vice versa. Most people can apply this waist belt by themselves, without any assistance.
Plus Sizes Available
Perhaps one of the best features of this lumbar belt is that it fits a wide range of small to large individuals. You no longer have to be frustrated in finding a size that’s large enough for your specific body shape. This neoprene back support fits belly button circumferences up to 80 inches.

Should I wear a back brace to bed?

I wear it often at night and sometimes during the day. I have spinal stenosis and degenerative disks so it really helps keep that area stable. No pain!! I can wear it under clothes comfortably, too, and often to Tai Chi. I have not put an ice/heat pack I to it. The Velcro is holding strong yet.
I like this brace. It’s mor like a corset than a brace. It is light weight so easy to wear. It fits a bit too high for me but it works.. I wore it two days then took it off and my back hurt more because this brace makes different muscles.work. So I suggest breaking it in slowly. Try it one or two hours the the next day add time to it. I noticed it made me stand up straighter.
A good brace
I have a more rigid back brace but wanted something I could have more movement yet support my back. This brace is exactly what I wanted. It provides support for my back but is flexible and I can bend over in it. Well made.
