Dear Lovely Readers,
I have failed. I agreed to promote and take part in this Zero Compression Back Brace campaign, and I didn’t. It started with my getting the first posting dates mixed up. Then I got a migraine, and couldn’t immediately get to fixing things, and then so much time had passed that the guilt mixed with my anxiety and though I would start this post many times, ultimately it never got posted.
The saddest part is I was super excited to do this review and be part of this campaign. The back brace is something that I need, and have been looking for, and the money that I could have earned as part of this campaign would have been a huge help to my family.
I do love the brace. It is comfortable, feminine and discreet. I do look a little wider around the middle, but that is just a me being self-conscious thing. I wore it at Church and was able to sit during the first hour without pain. The second and third hour of our meeting block, I work with the little kids in Nursery. They are 18 months to 3-years-old. It requires a lot of lifting and bending, holding and standing. The brace helped, and I barely remembered I had it on. I love that the brace is washable, so after a busy, sweaty day I can wash it with my laundry and it will stay clean and fresh. I hate it when braces and casts accumulate dirt and debris and there is no way to clean them effectively. I also enjoyed how easy it is to place and adjust as needed.
I even tried sleeping with the brace on. It was a rainy night, which is rare here, but when it is rainy, I get bad migraines and severe pain issues. The brace helped. My only struggle was that it would shift when I turned, and then I would have to adjust the placement. I have many medical issues, and slipped discs are just part of it. My friends with similar issues struggle to find cost-effective ways to live as normal a life as possible. I cannot wait to share this with them, and I know that many will benefit from the zero compression aspect. Most braces place pressure on the spine due to their placement. The design of this brace is unique, and pressure is diverted from the spine to the muscles supporting the lower back. This brace provides better posture, is physician approved, and is something that I can wear day and night – no matter what the activity is. While I was given a brace to try for free, and compensated for this and other posts, I would have recommended it without any compensation! I will be showing it to my neurologist, pain management specialist, and various support group friends. 🙂 It is rare to have something that you need appear when you need it as this has for me. I hope my anxiety and poor follow-through does not deny you the opportunity to try this for yourself!
The brace seems to fit true to size, and is available in multiple styles and colors for men, women, and pregnancy. The price is comparable to that of a “medical” brace, but available online at http://bit.ly/ZeroCompressionBackBrace.

I think the last thing I love about this product is it was designed by a husband and wife team that were looking for a better option after the wife had back surgery. They created a wonderful product, and deserve recognition. I am not the creative one in my family, and I admire the creativity of others.
