Best Lumbar Belts 2019

Are you looking for a good lumbar belt to relieve your back pain? After several hours of research, I selected 5 models among more than thirty belts currently popular on the market.

My preference is the BraceUP , a good adaptable support belt and able to follow you as well in your daily activities as in your sports sessions, all for a really small price.

However, you will find a shopping guide at the end of this article to help you find THE belt that will allow you to relieve daily without these damaging backaches.

The best low back lumbar belts

In this category, I propose you two belts which, for less than 25 €, already offer you good support and excellent adaptability.

BraceUP : the best not expensive

The first belt of my selection is offered by BraceUp, an American brand specializing in the design of splints, orthopedic appliances and supports of all kinds, to help their clients suffering from various pathologies to continue their daily physical activities.

And indeed, their lumbar belt is designed in this sense, because it helps to remain active without hindering the movements.

There are 3 basic sizes (S / M, L / XL and XXL – the guide in centimeter are provided in the product description), but thanks to a double strap system made from silicone, you can adjust the compression to your needs.

As it is not too wide in height, it is quite easy to position. And above all, its rounded design prevents the belt from slipping or from settling on the hips. Nevertheless, some users say they have struggled to adjust it so that it fits perfectly.

Its airy design is perfect for eliminating excess heat or humidity (although I always recommend, for a question of hygiene and comfort, to place it on a T-shirt).

Another nice side brought by this belt is the guarantee “satisfied or refunded” brought by the seller. If in the month following the reception, you are not satisfied with your purchase, it is committed to refunding you 100%.

In the end, here is a belt that, despite its low price, is perfectly adjustable and provides optimal support at the lumbar level without ever restricting your movements or clinging to your waist. It is a belt that is perfect for everyday activities as well as for demanding physical work or sports.

AidBrace : a slightly stiffer belt

Like BraceUp, the American brand AidBrace has established itself as a reference in the field of splints and orthopedic supports of all kinds. Their lumbar belt is their bestseller, the one that made the brand famous.

Of course, AidBrace claims that this belt is effective in relieving low back pain in cases of sciatica, scoliosis, hernia or disc protrusion. Of course, do not expect a miracle cure from this point of view, but the support it provides seems indeed optimal both in sports practice than during the execution of handling work.

Like the previous model, this belt is available in three sizes. By cons, no guide here in centimeters, just a match in inches. Nevertheless, if the conversion tires you, the users seem to agree to say that it fits well.

The dorsal plate is slightly curved to adopt a “good” position, and lateral scratches allow to adapt the belt to its morphology better.

A nice thing about this belt is the presence of a removable lumbar pad, which allows you, according to your needs of the moment, to opt for increased comfort.

On the other hand, if it loses the first place against the BraceUp, it is because of the shape of the dorsal part, more upright fits less on the hips and is more rigid. So I find, on the one hand, that it is more difficult to adjust to its morphology and, secondly, it is less comfortable for a workout.

In addition, there is a greater risk, therefore, that it slides along your hips.

On the other hand, the solidity of its design makes it a belt particularly adapted for the work of handling. Its aerated material, again, helps to regulate heat and perspiration.

Finally, like BraceUp, AidBrace offers a guarantee of satisfaction or reimbursement with a validity of one month after receipt. What you allow to crack to test it!

How To Choose Your Lumbar Belt?

It seems that back pain is one of the ills of the century. Whether they are due to pathology or they are caused by certain excesses, they sometimes have the art of ruining our lives …

The lumbar belt, without being a remedy for these ailments, is an excellent way to prevent or reduce them.

Suffering from several back pathologies, I must admit that at times, my own belt was really saving me to help me continue to be productive rather than bury myself in my bed!


If there are several types of lumbar belts (on which I come back a little further), we generally find a common operation.

These belts usually fit around the waist and attach using velcro. They offer, for the most part, reinforced back support, using a plastic band, steel, or a plate adopting the morphology, which is slid in the back.

The Type Of Lumbar Belt

The compression belt

This is the most classic abdominal belt, consisting of elastic materials and usually with a back reinforcement in the form of a plastic bar or steel, or a plate matching the shape of the back.

The sports belt

Designed to provide optimal support without ever hindering the movement, the sports belt is a good alternative for those who wish to continue their sporting activity despite some back pain (in the absence of any pathology, of course!).

The heating belt

These are often models incorporating cushions made of cherry stones or others to be heated in the microwave (even if the most modern incorporate a heating device operating by infrared).

They are generally recommended for end-of-day back pain, to relieve aches and lighter contractions.

The anti-vibration belt

The anti-vibration belt is typically the kind of belt to be used on a construction site, to prevent repeated trauma that can be caused by repeating the same movements, carrying heavy objects or handling a tool such as a hammer piercing, all without hindering the movements.
