I'm use a back brace to help me recover from a weakness on my left side that pulls my body in a twist, and becomes painful late in the day. When I put this brace on, it supports my back, so I can focus on keeping my core on my left side engaged so my posture can straighten. I need like this brace best, because it spreads lumbar support over a large surface area. Other lumbar supports aren't tall enough to provide support for the back and the abdominals that assist with good posture. The lumbar pads are terrific. I only take them out when they get in the way of sitting in a chair that provides similar support! I have a 27" waist, so the inside end of the brace (without the velcro) tends to slip out and bunch up on my hip crease, I eventually took the brace in (I'm a seamstress, it was easy to do. I saved the seam-binding and put it back on where I'd cut it) and added velcro on the inside end, which stopped the slipping problem, but I couldn't find any of the soft kind of velcro, which means the inside velcro is a bit stiff. I wish Futuro would 1. put that soft type of velcro on the internal side to prevent the long, unfastened end from slipping out, and 2. make a smaller size, so there is less belting to slip and hang out of the front when tightened in the first place!
