There are many reasons a larger person should consider wearing an abdominal stomach belt. Wearing an abdominal belt not only helps you look skinnier but will also help you feel healthier! This brace for a man or woman can help reduce the amount that your belly hangs, otherwise known as a pendulous abdomen.
Carrying around extra weight can make a large impact on your spine and back muscles. The sagging fat that you may be carrying around forces your back to work harder in order to keep your body in an upright position. This belt helps reduce that extra tension and stress as it applies pressure, giving maximum support your lumbar back region. It can also release the burden placed on your knees, thighs, and legs.
This abdominal belly lift is made of lightweight material to ensure you don’t overheat or sweat while wearing the sling. It’s comfortable enough for you to wear it all day and you can even wear it under or over your clothes, depending on your preference or what’s most comfortable. If you’re looking for a slimmer abdominal wrap or one that you can exercise and burn fat in, our plus size abdominal tummy wrap is a great option!
The dual tension straps in front allow you to adjust the compression level of the brace. The straps are easily adjusted to your shape and size. Whether you’re looking for maximum support or light support, you can adjust the corset to whatever you desire.
This belly support features a removable foam pad for the back section of the brace. This pad helps give additional support for your spine and is 8 inches wide, providing maximum coverage. The foam insert also helps prevent the brace from rolling or bunching up.
All straps are secured by fasteners, making it easy to modify the band tighter or looser. You can adjust these straps at any time throughout the day and the straps also make it simple to apply without assistance.
This brace comes in one big universal size, eliminating the frustration you may have when trying to find a brace that fits your size. Due to the adjustable straps, this supporter can fit waist circumferences of 42" up to 60".

I found it quite comfortable at first to hide my growing lower belly and later to support and 'contain' belly hang. I even bought a second so I could wear them daily. They've served me well up to approx 220lbs (5'4") as I stopped wearing it due to my pregnancy. After my pregnancy I was searching for a larger belt which could accommodate the 60+lbs I had gained. I could not find one anywhere. I ended up putting one across my hips/back and the other one upside down on my belly and attach them on the sides it fits almost perfectly. It may sound funny but it lifts my lower belly of my legs whilst and is held mostly by my hips than my back. Shifting of my belly my hips are drastically reduced and increased my mobility immensely. But be aware, if your are soft like I am you will experience plenty of 'overspill' which is impossible to hide under tight clothing. I hope they'll make a bigger single one soon suitable for large hips and large pendulous bellies, since I'm scratching on 305lbs. Until then, I love my abilitating belts in fact I couldn't even drive anymore without my belts keeping my belly of my steering wheel.
Before I got this belt, my stomach would rub on the door of my car when I would lean out the window for food, close the door, etc., but now my life is so much more comfortable and convenient!
I've had an excellent experience with BraceAbility.com and my belly belt from BraceAbility has become as much a part of my life as my cell phone I wouldn't leave home without either one of them. Steve H. SC
