Beyond what I hoped for.
I love my Groove belt. Still playing around with it to get the size juuuussst right but even during this period of getting acclimated to the belt and my size it doesn't hurt at all if worm snuggly. It's also an odd sensation to not have that gap in the back regular belts cause when moving around that cause pant adjustments through the day. All around I am happy with this belt.
