Like others have said the brace is a bit small. I am a 36 waist and it is just engaging the Velcro by about 2 inches of connection. This leaves about 2 inches of rough Velcro to aggravate my skin (I wear it under my garments). It seems to be made well but not sure where there is any copper in this "Copper Fit" belt other than the color of the decorative stitching. It is not bulky like some other braces and it holds the heat in and does give some support so it's not soooo bad!
