Inferior sewing quality
Reviewed in the United States on August 17, 2019
The design is effective and adds comfort to the area where I have back pain. However, there is a significant short coming in it's making. After only 3 weeks of wearing it, the joints where straps connect to body are coming apart. At this rate, I don't expect it to be usable soon as the straps that go under the shoulders will soon completely separate.
25 September 2019 Update:
Upon seller knowing of the problem I posted, the seller contacted me intending to satisfy my purchase. The seller informed me that revisions where made to the product that overall improved it. To my surprise the seller asked me if I would accept the new version free of charge. Unfortunately, I made an error in the size, requesting the new version be a large. In short, when I received the revised better quality product, I found it to be too small and that I should have ordered an Extra Large. I thoroughly examined the product though and clearly saw improvements that aside from better sewing, included pads to fit under the arms where the previous product's straps gave pain to me.
Upon notifying the seller, the seller understood my mistake in requesting the Large size instead of the Extra Large size, went ahead and sent me the Extra Large size.
I received that product a few days ago and can happily say that it is well worth the price. It fits very well and the cushion-type pads that come with it now fully eliminate any pain from the straps that run down the sides of the torso. The straps are easily adjustable and make the fit perfect. After wearing this now for a few days, the results are most comfortable and the pain in my lower back is in fact very relieved.
I could not be any more satisfied with both the product and the lengths the seller went to make sure that I was totally satisfied with their product. As it is with all products, companies always do best when good, attentive, and understanding customer service is there and in the case of SOMAZ; it is there.
I recommend this product to anyone looking to improve their posture and relieve pain in the lower back.
My sincere thanks go to SOMAZ customer service that worked so hard to help satisfy my purchase.
