I bought this knee support and also the Yasco Breathable Neoprene Knee Support, One Size, Black.
My 1st one lasted 4 years.<a class="a-link-normal" data-hook="product-link-linked" href="/Wellgate-for-Women-Gel-Comfort-Knee-Support-1-Size/dp/B000GHL62I/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_txt?ie=UTF8">Wellgate for Women Gel-Comfort Knee Support, 1 Size</a> Also has great patella support and stays warm during cold frosts.
After wearing the Wellgate Gel-comfort knee brace for just a few days, the pain was greatly reduced...it keeps the knee stable & is very easy to put on & is comfortable & breathable...I'm so glad I found this product...give it a try...I think you will like it!
Used these a couple times (ordered and wear 2 knee braces because both my knees have issues but, I refuse to give up on my exercise routine) and discontinued because they were so uncomfortable and the neoprene makes you sweat much more than the previous braces I ordered.
I have funny shaped legs, my thighs are very large, but below the knee my legs are thin, so these didn't fit well, The knee part didn't even fit over my knee, it was difficult to place this because of the shape of my leg.
However, not even a mere 2 months after purchasing this brace, the stitching around the patella gel opening is coming undone and/or the gel has torn where the stitching is supposed to be holding it in place - it's literally falling apart!
