Be wary of the listed sizes,
This review is from: Maxar Work Belt – (Industrial Lumbo-Sacral Support) – Standard, Medium (Health and Beauty)
I have a recently measured, 36″ waist, and so although I was wary to buy a medium, as not a single article of my clothing is a medium, because the item lists that the medium size is for 33.5-38″, I went with the medium. The belt was far too small, so unless you’re on the bottom end of one of the ranges, I’d suggest going with the size up. Otherwise, the belt does what it’s supposed to do, nothing magical, but definitely supportive.

Sizing on listing is incorrect,
This review is from:
My husband has a part time job (retired) and a lot of the time, he has to move heavy products. I kept telling him that he needs a good support belt, but he scoffed at the idea so I bought this belt.. just in case. Wouldn’t you know it, he came home last week and his back was killing him. The next day the belt arrived! I presented it to him and he actually wore it to work!
Some people have commented on the size running small. It’s not the belt itself, but it has been listed incorrectly. The sizes on the box do not match the description on Amazon. I bought a large and my husband’s waist is 38 and it fit perfectly. 36 1/2 – 40 1/2.

Great back support,
This review is from:
This elasticity back brace with Velcro is very strong and sturdy for anyone who has to do heavy lifting. Very strong with stays in the back panel to help stiffen and support your lumbar part of your back. I recommend this belt to anyone who has to lift heavy items when they’re back is not in the best of shape. Remember it helps you to support your back it is not a cure all if you have a bad back. It only helps you take the strain off your back. If you are in extreme pain always consult your physician.
