How to measure belt size

How to measure waist for belt size


Measure around your waist at the height at which you will wear the belt. Note the measurement where the tape reaches one time around your waist and use the belt size chart.

Alternatively, add two inches (2”) to your trouser size to find your belt size. For instance, if you wear 34” waist trousers, choose a 36” belt. For jeans or low-rise trousers, add a further 3 or 4” to find your belt size.

This chart shows the range from the tightest to the loosest the belt can be worn. We recommend wearing the belt at the middle/third hole (all of our belts have five holes). Being the central hole, this offers the flexibility to tighten or loosen the belt as your body changes and to style your clothes differently (shirt tucked in versus loose, light trousers versus heavier fabrics). It also means there’s sufficient length to comfortably tuck your belt into the keeper(s).

Frequently Asked Questions

Is waist/trouser size the same as belt size?

No, they are very different. Your belt size is bigger as it has to accommodate your trousers and other clothes. That’s why we recommend adding two inches (2”) to your waist size to confirm your belt size.

What if I’m between sizes?

If you are between belt sizes, round up to the next size.

How should I stand when measuring my waist?

Stand in a relaxed stance, without sucking in, or pushing out, your stomach. This position should be how you normally stand.

How tight should the tape measure be?

Snug but not tight or uncomfortable.

How do I buy a belt as a gift?

Great question! Read our guide to buying a belt as a gift for our top advice.
