Women's belt sizing:
Due to the difficulty in converting standard US numbered sizes to inches and the large variances that exist between similarly sized pants from different brands the most accurate way to find your proper belt size will be to take an actual measurement. Below are two methods to take a measurement:
Note - Please keep in mind that your ‘waistband’ measurement to find your proper belt size will be larger than your natural waist measurement (your waist at its narrowest point). Also the rise of your pants will have a significant influence on your waistband measurement. The higher the rise of your pants, the smaller your waistband measurement will be, and the lower the rise of your pants, the larger it will be. Our belts will adjust approximately 2” smaller and 3” larger than the labelled size (size 28-30 will adjust 2” smaller and 2” larger), keep this in mind if you are trying to select a belt that will fit with pants with varying rises.
Method One - Measure around your waistband:
With a tailor’s tape measure (or piece of string), thread the tape measure around your waistband through the belt loops of your pants to obtain your waistband measurement. Make sure to wear anything you may carry inside your waistband while taking the measurement to ensure accuracy. The measurement in inches will be the size belt that you should select. If you are in-between sizes, pick the belt size that is closest to your measurement (e.g. if you measured 31.2”, select a size 32; if you measured 30.8”, select a size 30).
Method Two – Measure an existing belt that fits:
If you have a belt that currently fits properly a measurement can easily be taken to find your size. With a traditional leather belt with holes lay the belt flat and measure from the hole you most often use to the end of the belt where the buckle starts. This measurement in inches will be the size belt you should select. If you are in-between sizes, pick the belt size that is closest to your measurement (e.g. if you measured 31.2”, select a size 32; if you measured 30.8”, select a size 30).
