My lower back is very damaged (disc problem). Thus, my doctor recommended to buy a strong back brace to get me through the days. I was not very confident about this Venom brace, but I decided to give it a chance – worst case scenario, I will just return it back. I definitely did not do that as this thing is great. It fits me well, does not irritate my skin and provides solid support 24/7. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has to be on their feet a lot throughout the day and who suffers from lower back pain.
