have a herniated disc and I am looking for a good lower back support
medical corset. However, all the
corsets and back supports I have found online are the new Velcro-closure type supports. Does anyone make medical back supports that look like corsets anymore? I have seen some vintage medical corsets that are lace up and I'd
like something more like that because I love corsets, and I like the look of the medical corsets instead of those horribly ugly Velcro things. I haven't had much luck, so I'm hoping you can point me in the right direction.

A: The corset style you
may be looking for can be found by searching the Web for "camp corset". Also,
contacting one of the custom makers
(many orthotics specialists work with
them) will be a good option. A long hipped style would be
recommended, as this will provide the most support and stability to the spine.
