Our belt measurement is taken from the point the buckle meets the strap to the middle hole. Generally, there is a 15-20 cm overlap from the middle hole to the end of the belt that is not shown in our measurement. 

How to quickly choose belt size based on pant size?

Alternatively, a quicker way to know what size belt to buy is by selecting a belt that is 2 inches larger than your usual pant size to make sure it fits you comfortably. This applies for both men and women.

For example, if you wear 34” waist trousers, then a 36" belt size will be a perfect fit. Most will find this simple formula works best for pants worn at a traditional height–close to the natural waistline. For a belt to wear with low-rise trousers or jeans, consider adding 3" or 4" to your pant size.

The easiest way to determine how many belts you need is to measure your existing ones. Lay the belt out on a level surface. Start the tape measure at the intended hole and stretch it to the point where the buckle and the end of the belt meet. Since belt measurements are in inches, it would be better if you rounded them to the nearest inch.

What else should you consider when choosing a belt size?

  • When measuring, keep in mind to exclude the belt buckle. The measurement will be inaccurate and will be somewhat longer than the correct size for you.
  • Most belt sizes in the United States or Australia are measured in inches, while some stores also provide basic XS, S, M, L, and XL sizing. In the meanwhile, European countries measure belts in centimetres.

What to keep in mind while selecting your belt size?

The pant size conversion method above is the easiest and most convenient way for you to quickly grab your favourite belts. But please remember that this quick rule only applies to classic belts with typical bar buckles. For more special designs like knot leather belts or wide waist belts - please refer to the specific product description of each belt. Please keep in mind that belt measurement varies in different belt designs and brands. If you have an existing belt, do not measure the belt from end to end. You will not get the accurate size that way. 

For example, some special designs do not have pinholes (eg. leather knot belts, wide waist elastic belts...).

In that situation, please read each product description carefully:

- Measurements will be the same as for pin buckle belts if there is no further information. There is an extra 15 cm/ 6 inches that are not shown in the measurement. 

- Additional information might be the full length of the strap, the maximum length of the elastic band etc.

These timeless designs feature simple, yet sophisticated buckles that will never go out of style. The rich, deep colour of genuine leather adds a touch of luxury to any look, making it the perfect choice for both casual and formal occasions. Whether you're dressing up for a night out or just running errands around town, a classic buckle belt made of genuine leather is sure to become a staple in your wardrobe - for both ladies and gentlemen!


What size belt for a 30 waist?

When selecting your belt size, the quickest way is to add 2 inches to your pant size. For instance - we advise a size 32 belt if you wear size 30 pants, a 46 inch belt would fit a size 44 waist, a size 50 belt for a 48 waist etc. You can also use measuring tape to measure where you will wear your belt; that number is your belt size. Once the buckle is tightened, there should always be 10-20cm extra length for overlapping and/or tucking under your belt loops.

What are different types of belts? How to best wear and style your leather belts?

There are various types of dress leather belts that add different styles to a given outfit. Some of these belts even have slightly different functions. Here is a brief overview of 9 different types of belts.

1. Formal belts: These leather dress belts are usually worn for formal attire, often worn with suits or dress slacks. Suede belts are sometimes considered more semi-formal, though depending on the quality can also fit with more formal occasions.

2. Genuine leather belts: A pair of classic black leather belts and brown leather belts are the ultimate must-have belt duo for both men and women. Most leather belts are made from cowhide (either full-grain leather or calfskin), though faux leather or vegan leather belts is also available for those who follow vegan lifestyles. Leather belts can be worn in casual or formal settings, making a long-lasting belt of genuine leather one of the most necessary and efficient fashion accessories for everyone.

3. Braided belts: A braided belt involves many pieces of leather braided together to create a plaited, solid piece of material. Both braided belts for men and plaited belts for women are usually worn with casual and relaxed outfits.

4. Cinch belts: Waist-cinching belts are wide belts that are used to cinch a person’s waist and add shape to a silhouette. They can be made of leather or combined with stretching elastic materials to adjust to the size of your midsection.

5. Reversible belts: Reversible belts are casual or formal belts with a twistable buckle, making it possible to wear the belt “inside out.” The alternate side of a reversible belt may feature a different style or colour than the other side.

6. Skinny belts: Thin belts are typically casual or formal belts made out of leather. They are often used as waist belts to accentuate a person’s shape, making them more stylish than functional. Available in multicolours, these elegant and chic belts are refreshing touch-ups to either casual or date night outfits. Usually, there are two leather finishes to choose from. You can either go with glossy patent leather thin belts for minimal chic looks, or matte

7. Canvas belts: Canvas belts were originally used by people in the military as part of a training uniform. They can keep a pair of bottoms fastened to a person’s waist while allowing for more movement than a leather belt would. Canvas belts are often made from a blend of linen and cotton or from synthetic webbing. Instead of a metal buckle, these belts buckle with plastic hardware that resembles a seat belt.

8. Western belts: Western belts were traditionally worn by cowboys and are made out of thick leather that can keep a person’s pants up as they ride a horse. Modern times have seen Western belts used more for style with their large, silver, engraved buckles, and intricate embossed leather strap designs. These exquisite vintage belts are loved worldwide

9. D-ring belts: Instead of using the typical belt buckle and notch system, d-ring belts fasten with two d-shaped rings where the end tip of the belt is threaded through to hold in place. D-ring belts are typically made of canvas, cotton, or some other fabric material rather than leather.

So many types of belts - which ones should I choose?

Belts come in so many shapes, designs and materials - we know! But don't fret, there are some ways to narrow them down. Genuine leather belts are definitely the top choice for both men and women - as nothing can beat a classic brown belt or black belt with a silver buckle made of premium quality leather that would last the longest. If you want something with a bit more character, definitely check out the colourful thin belts that either are glossy belts in patent leather or matte-finished leather belts.

How to find the perfect women's plus-size belts and men's big size belts?

For men and women who wear plus sizes, finding the perfect belt can feel a bit unsettling but here at Belt N Bags we are proud to have all the sizes that suit your need, from XXS to XXXL belts. Following the clear belt size guide above, you can browse from a wide range of women's plus size belts and men's plus size belts to pick your favourite leather belts. Here's an ultimate belt styling guide for curvy bodies.

Plus size fashion has come a long way in recent years, and one accessory that can really elevate an outfit is a stylish belt. However, finding plus size belts that fit comfortably and look great can be a challenge. That's why we've put together a guide to help you find the perfect plus size belts for your wardrobe.

How to buy the correct sized belt?

We recommend selecting a belt that is 2 inches larger than your usual pant size to make sure it fits you comfortably. Belt measurements are taken from the point the strap meets the buckle to the middle hole. Generally, there is 15 cm from the middle hole to the end of the belt for an overlap that is not shown in the measurement. 


Determining your belt size as a woman is relatively straightforward. You can follow these steps to find out your belt size:

  1. Measure your waist or hips: Use a flexible measuring tape to measure either your waist or hips, depending on where you intend to wear the belt. If you're measuring your waist, it's typically the narrowest part of your torso. If you're measuring your hips, it's usually around the widest part of your hips.
  2. Use a sizing chart: Once you have your waist or hip measurement in inches or centimeters, you can consult a sizing chart provided by the brand you're interested in or use a general sizing chart for belts. Keep in mind that sizing may vary between different brands, so it's always a good idea to refer to their specific sizing information.
  3. Find your size: Match your waist or hip measurement to the corresponding size on the chart. This will be your belt size.


  • What size belt do women wear? Women's belt sizes can vary depending on the brand and country, but they generally range from about 28 to 34 inches (71 to 86 cm) for smaller sizes, and up to around 40 inches (102 cm) for larger sizes.
  • What size is 90 in women's belt? A size of 90 in women's belts typically corresponds to the measurement in centimeters of the belt's length from the buckle to the middle hole. This is approximately equivalent to a size 36 in inches.
  • What is 100cm in belt size? A belt size of 100 cm is roughly equivalent to a size 40 in inches. Keep in mind that sizing can vary slightly between brands, so it's always a good idea to consult the specific brand's sizing chart.
