I have had this truss for just over two weeks but it is very impressive. I didn't realize that it didn't come with pads so this review is for the basic truss without pads. For six months I have used a highly recommended truss from Amazon. This didn't really apply much pressure to my hernia. The comfort truss is on another level. It's light, comfortable and you can tighten it so that it applies pressure without irritating you. I have high hopes that this truss can help control my hernia as I build ab muscles and hope to avoid surgery altogether. I hope it will work even better once the pads arrive. This is the only truss to use. Thanks.
Extra pads - for when you need more pressure - works well
Not bulky - fits just right.
Extra thickness Pad
I have found with my left side inguinal hernia that I can puch the bulge back in but it does not stay "in" . The extra thick pad helps keep it in better than the one that came with my CT belt. I would suggest that the extra thick pad might best be included with the CT belt so that customers have the option to use it even if the overall price of the CT might then need to be a bit more.
Have two belts. Bought thicker insert for more pressure and works great. Used original insert to double up on other belt so like two for one for me.
Extra thick pad
The extra thick pad gives me more support; I feel confident and comfortable lifting weights.
