This was my first time trying a back brace. I have issues with my lower back and thought this would be good for when I work out to make sure I keep my back level. I had a hard time wearing it when I worked out due to the limited range of motion. I liked this brace more for the everyday use. I don't have terrible posture, but my posture could use some help. I like the brace and could tell it was working, but it was a little uncomfortable since it pulls the shoulders back. I would prefer a back brace that targets my lower back concerns, personally. If you're looking for help with your posture though, this brace is for you!
