Product Description

Size: Large

Product Description

After 25 years and at least 30 positive epidemiological studies, we could fill a front-end loader with research that proves back support effectiveness. Bottom line is, smart companies big and small have learned the value of the back support. Back injuries are the most significant occupational health problem by far, and thousands of companies and workers use supports everyday as part of a complete approach to reducing their severity and frequency. The purpose is simple: provide additional truncal support, limit range of motion associated with injury, and remind the worker that they are lifting.

From the Manufacturer

After 25 years and at least 30 positive epidemiological studies, we could fill a front-end loader with research that proves back support effectiveness. Bottom line is, smart companies big and small have learned the value of lock and load back support. Because when it comes to providing crucial truncal support and limiting the range of motion associated with most back injuries, these back supporting bad boys are king of the hill. Now, workers can fearlessly pick up the package, the slack and the pace.

I like the valcro belt as it it adjustable and easy to put on.

This back brace supports my back and a size small was a perfect fit for me(I'm 26 in the waist).

I was very impressed with the quality of workmanship of the Proflex 1650 Economy Elastic Back Support. I would highly recommend this product. One reviewer commented that the suspenders are hard to adjust, but I found out that once you have it adjusted it works nicely you can open the belt while sitting and Velcro it back up when your working and it will not fall off your body. The only thing I had a hard time with is there was no sizing chart on the Amazon webpage so here it is... Hope it helps!

Size Name: X-Large Verified Purchase
None of the companies who make these back supports seem to have ever tried their products on real people to get the sizing right. I don't see any size guidelines in the listing and the size chart offered in another review is pretty far off, from my experience. I have a waist size that varies from 42 to 46 depending on how active I am. Because the stretchy side wings are too long on the XL, it's really too big to give me strong back support. I just ordered the same thing in a size Large, which I expect to be pretty tight when my waist is at 44 inches -- but it needs to be tight to provide good back support. This brand is very well made but it's useless if it doesn't fit right. I could probably have used the XL if they had simply made the side panel adjusters a bit shorter. They were definitely too long to give any meaningful adjustability -- so you have to be within a few inches of the size it's made for or you will need a different size! As I said, this back support is very well-made but, size-wise, this company has not planned or designed very thoughtfully.

I have a 38" waist so your one size fits all average back support just barely fits, always on the verge of popping right off. From my experience XL is the same as getting a one-size. No difference whatsoever. So I thought a 2XL should do the trick. Turns out its WAY TOO BIG! At least from this company. Maybe would start at about 44" on up.

As a server, I carry heavy trays around for 8 hours a day. I also have to bus tables that come in all heights. Bending over and standing back up with heavy trays and maneuvering around the dining room with them really used to put a strain on my back, so I bought one of these.

I haven't had a problem since and know that when I get older, I will thank myself for taking care of my back now.

Medium size fits a size 29 waist to roughly a size 36 waist. Keeps back upright, and does its job quite well.

Size Name: 2X-Large Verified Purchase
Now, while I'm actually using this product for something completely different to back support for lifting heavy objects, I am impressed with the quality and value for money of this product. For under 12 dollars, you are getting a really well made, and solidly put together Back Support item. I purchased two of these, one was 10 dollars more than this, and out of the two, I way prefer the simplicity of this. Really well manufactured. What am I using this for, you wonder? Actually, using this in a spa for clients with large bellies. It's a long story....but the point is that had I bought a spa item just like this instead, it would have cost me around 4 times the price.

It does work because the stiffness in the waist band logically conforms the back to a more upright posture. The only downside is that it gets very uncomfortable after having a big meal so you have to let that sucker out. Sometimes it may be hard to breathe.

Size Name: Medium Verified Purchase
I have a bad back and this helps prevent back soreness and strain. It can be worn over or under clothing and fits a 32" (and probably a 34") waist or smaller. It is a big help with my posture when using a compute for long periods which is a problem for me.

It provides a light support for the back but isn't in the same league as the leather or heavy support belts for construction or weight lifting (or cost or discomfort either).

Can be a little fussy to adjust and I find the suspenders to be a determent which is why it gets a 4 (even if you remove the suspenders it is fussy to adjust).
