I get how that would work in theory, but in a real life situation I doubt you would actually notice the difference. If your body needs to maintain such a consistent temperature I would hate to see what would happen when you have to walk up a set of stairs or exert any kind of energy that could potentially raise your temperature by a half degree. Good thing you remembered your braces today though or you would have been boiling to death.
What about your shoulders? Arent you concerned with the added temperature that the braces will add at the point of contact?
I wear both belts and braces and I have also found braces to be cooler.
Back the the original question, I find braces to be much more comfortable, cooler, look better, hold pants at the correct height all day, and dont make vests bulge. To be a little too honest, the only thing I think a belt is better for is when you have to go to the gentlemans room and sit on the commode. That said, for standing operations in the mens room braces are better yet again......
