I still get bruises from my Inzer belt.

Powerlifting isn't for pussies.   :P

What has worked for me is to wear the belt higher on squats and lower on deads. I get less bruised up this way.

The bite I can handle, when you have the belt on are you pushing your abdomen out or are you trying to keep it in with the belt. If the belt is on properly where should you feel the pressure or support during the lift.

Mine is on pretty snug, but not so snug that it's uncomfortable just standing there. I push out against the belt when I lift.

Mine is very snug, to the point where as soon as my lift is complete I unlatch it.

Ditto.  I wear it to help keep my back inside my skin.  Don't want it spraying all over the back wall.  Hard to clean up. :saythat:
