Rated 1 out of 5 by Prepmom not flattering
I did not like this belt when it arrived. The back looks cheap. You would have to wear it in a way that the back never showed. Even then I am not sure it would look right.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Alnilam Fit is off
Unfortunately I have to agree with the previous reviewer that this belt is not worth the money (although I'm not sure what s/he meant about the back--it has a simple stretch fabric back, like most waist belts). I tried this on with the Scoopback Maxi because I thought it would give a perfect little pop of interest to a fairly simple dress. Unfortunately, the beaded portion of the belt is very stiff (maybe it has to be to prevent the beads from shifting?) but the result is that it doesn't create a smooth line around your waist, but rather gapes away at the sides and forms "corners." I wish I had been able to take a picture since that would show what I mean much better, but unfortunately my phone was out of juice. Suffice it to say, the result was unflattering and made the belt look cheap and ill-fitting. Too bad, because the design is lovely. If there were a way to make the beaded portion more flexible so it would hug my waist properly, I would definitely buy this belt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by northstar28 beautiful belt, good quality
Recieved shipment yesterday, ordered a large. I was thinking this ran small but it doesn't. I am 125#, 34 A, 29 1/2, 37 for reference. Will exchange for medium. The quality is excellent, The bead work is beautiful, belt is a little stiff at first but will wear in over time. Will put between mattresses to reshape. Seems to be plenty comfortable. Ordered it to go with the red doily skirt and chambray shirt, very nice together, this piece can be paired up with many things.
