Product Description

The Male Rib Belt is made from six-inch latex free of elastic. There is a foam panel across the rib cage that provides padding while the remainder of the support's elastic provides compression. The rib belt's Velcro closure allows for a highly adjustable fit. Rib belts are often prescribed for treatment of injured or broken ribs, sternum, middle, and upper back support, and compression for hernias. SIZE GUIDE: For correct size measure around the pectorals. SMALL - 24" to 41". LARGE - 41" to 60"

I've got a separated rib (costochondral separation), and was told to keep it under compression for 6 week. I started off with a wide ace-bandage that was supposed to be for that purpose, but it really didn't hold well, was really "wrinkly" under my clothes, and was difficult to put on by myself. So I order this, and it works perfectly. It's quite sturdy, and is easy to put on by myself. It offers great support, and compression, and isn't too bulky under my shirts. It is a bit too stiff/scratchy to wear directly against the skin, however, so you'll need to wear an undershirt. Also, be sure to orient the hookandloop closure to your side, otherwise it will be visible under your overshirt (and will look kinda funny to people). If you do that, it's pretty well invisible. BTW, I ordered the large size, and it fit very well. I'm not very big/tall (5'8" and 185lbs), and there is plenty of room for larger or smaller folks to fit in this thing. I've got the velcro about halfway through its possible range.

I injured a rib in a doctor's office - yes, yes: I know... Keep laughing; just keep it up...

*Annnnyhow* - I started with what I had (several large ACE bandages) and then, as the lovely weeks wore on, decided that it was either something with more padding or the pistol for me, and after some research chose this puppy right'chyar.

It was a good purchase; the padding was sufficient...my only complaint is that they might have made it wider, ie _taller_. I found myself adjusting it up and then down again as I tried to get it to cover the entirety of the oh-so-wonderful Busted Rib Goodness. (If you are reading this review, you probably know *EXACTLY* what I mean...) If it was two inches broader and had another half-inch of padding I'd have given the thing SEVEN stars - hell, I'd have married it and written it into my will!

I bought this as a breathable alternative to another rib wrap I own (how many rib-wraps does one person need?!)

But it is only slightly more flexible than your standard paper-cardboard box (think of cutting open and wrapping your mid-section with a cereal box) So if you are doing anything remotely active the edges dig into your skin, not really comfortable.

If you do as the picture shows and wear it outside your shirt I suppose it works ok, but that's kind of like Superman wearing his red underwear on the outside of his blue spandex...certainly would be a fashion statement.

This helped my husband recover from separated cartilage in his ribs extremely well. As long as he had the belt on, the pressure was sufficient enough that it didn't even hurt much for him to cough and sneeze, which would have brought him to his knees, otherwise. Great buy.

Got for my husband who fractured 3 ribs. He did not wear it much because he is stubborn, but the product is as advertised. It did promote a more restful nights sleep when he chose to wear it. Appears to be well made, but only washed it once.

I bought this to help with a separated rib. I wear a size 48 jacket and have a 39 inch waist. This fit well, better than the other belt I bought for the same purchase. Almost the entire belt is elastic and it provided enough compression that I was able to breath without much pain. Well worth the price.

Purchased belt for hernia support.Product was about what I expected.The biggest complaint was that the hook part of the hook and loop fastener was not sewed on very well and started to come apart in the first 5 minutes I had it on.The second belt was also single stitched so resewed both belts .Now they do their job with no problems.This should be done properly when they were manufactured.

Overall, a good product and very much worth the price. It lets you put something around your hurting ribs without the bulkiness of an exercise wrap, which I used before buying this product.

Anyway, the only downside is the velcro. I bought one of these directly from the seller, a small size, and it was working fine until about a year into using it when the velcro began slipping. I decided to buy another one, this time a large size, just to make sure the velcro does not slip. I guess the only recommendation I have for any future buyers of this product is for you to make sure you get the right size.
