What criteria to consider?

For his belt size, we need to know where and how you carry it. Indeed, a belt can be worn at the waist, pelvis or even lower to the hip for women.

The criteria to be considered are not necessarily the same for men and for women.

How Do You Choose Your Belt Size 3

For men

For men the choice of belt size is easier than women because the possibilities are usually boil down to two cases:

  • Either you wear a standard size pants: in this case you need to know your waistline.
  • Either you wear trousers rather low size, in which case you should use your hip measurement.

For women

For women, we must be careful because the belts models are more varied than in men. The most reliable solution is to always take into consideration where the belt will be placed on your body and measure the turn at this location.

Determine his belt size

Here are two methods to help you determine your belt size. Both methods are easy and simple to follow, and you provide a reliable and accurate result.

Measure around your pants (or other)

One of the methods the simplest and most accurate for her waist size is to measure the turn of pants that you will wear the belt. For example, if you have a high waist pants, the belt size should be equal to your waistline, ie where there passers pants. And your pants size is low, more the size of the belt will be.

If you do not want to wear the belt with pants, you can use this method with other types of clothing. Indeed, you can replace the pants with a dress, sweater or other clothes that you want to wear the belt. To the extent, follow these steps:

  1. Step 1: Wear the pants on you (or other garment)
  2. Step 2: Take the measuring tape and insert it into the passers pants.If you wear another garment such as a robe, wrap the tape measure where you want the belt
  3. Step 3: When the measuring tape has been around the pants, attach the front and Take the measurement.This measure corresponds to the waist size

Tip: If you do not have a tape measure, use a non-extensible string to measure and report the length of the string on a rule to know your measure.

Tip: If your measurement is between two sizes, it is advisable to take the larger size. For example, if your measurement is 87 centimeters, it is recommended to size 90.

This is a very good method to determine the size of the belt because it provided a reliable and accurate result because the measurement is taken exactly at the point where the belt moves.Moreover, this method takes into account the thickness of the cloth on which the belt is placed, it is advised to use this method if you plan to wear a belt with clothes with large thicknesses.

How Do You Choose Your Belt Size

Measuring the size of a belt

If you already have in your possession a belt to your size simply measure the length of it.

To recall, the size of a belt is the belt length in centimeters. And contrary to what one might think, this length does not correspond to the total length of the belt, but the length between the beginning of the loop and the central hole of the belt.

To know the size of a belt, it is sufficient to take your belt and measure the length between the end of the loop and the hole that you normally use. Normally, this hole is marked by the use, or you can wear the belt and mark the hole for you. You get your belt size. It could be that the hole you usually use is not the center hole of the belt, in this case, this belt is not your size.

This second method is as reliable and accurate as the first method. However, make sure the belt fits you and takes into account the thickness of your pants or your clothing.
