The braces shipped right away and I received them much sooner than I thought possible since it was being shipped from the UK to the USA.

The braces are exactly as pictured without any odd smell from storage.

The braces, however, are very short. I am 5'9" (or 175cm) tall and I had to sew the adjustment tab to the end of the braces to use them. That is not how the braces were intended to be used, but it works fine for my specific height. If you are taller, you probably cannot use them at all, unless your pants sit well above the waist.
