I ordered the Contour Backmax, because I was scheduled to have shoulder surgery. Having had a previous shoulder surgery, I knew how hard it would be to sleep comfortably after surgery. I am happy to report that I was able to sleep much better this go around from day 1, since I had the Contour Backmax. It was so much more comfortable than trying to sleep in a recliner. I am about 5' 5" and it fit me perfectly.
I THOUGHT THE CONTOUR BACKMAX WAS QUITE COMFORTABLE, BUT I THINK IT SHOULD BE A BIT WIDER. ALSO THE ZIPPERS THAT CONNECTED THE PIECES BROKE AFTER THE SECOND DAY OF USE. ZIPPIERS SHOULD BE STRONGER OR THE PIECES SHOULD BE MADE FROM VELCRO. OTHERWISE I WAS PLEASED WITH MY BACKMAX.
