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!
