When it comes to back pain, you want to make sure that the lumbar support brace and belt you choose are the right size and fit for your body. If they are not, you may end up experiencing more pain and discomfort than necessary.
Here are a few tips to help you choose the right size and fit for a lumbar support back brace:
1. Measure your waist circumference. This is the measurement of your waist at the narrowest point.

2. Compare your waist circumference measurement to the sizing chart provided by your lumbar support brace or belt manufacturer. Most braces and belts come in two sizes, small or medium. Make sure to choose the size that corresponds to your waist circumference measurement.
3. Take into account your height and weight. The taller you are, the higher the brace or belt should be placed on your hips, while those who weigh less may need a lower-fitting belt or brace.
4. Try on your new lumbar support brace or belt at least three times before you fully commit to purchasing it. You should wear it for an extended period of time (at least 30 minutes) to get a true sense of how it feels and helps with back pain relief.
