Rated 4 out of 5Â by jennienfer i wanted to wear this belt at my waist (28"), not my hips, and the small worked perfectly for me. the tail of the belt was not so long that it was hanging down, which is great. i love the brass hardware and the tabs instead of a buckle. as other reviewers have stated, the leather on the inside of the belt is a little rough, but i doubt it's rough enough to snag sweaters, etc. so for me it would not be a dealbreaker. however, i am going to return it because the color isn't quite what i was hoping for. the anthro product page does describe it as "rose," but based on the product shots, plus the the spring photos where it was styled with other pants, shorts, etc., i thought it might be more nude than pink. i have been looking high and low for a nude/neutral belt. but, they described the color correctly--it is a very pale pink (rose), not really a nude. so, this time it's my fault. :)

Rated 3 out of 5Â by AB115 Just Okay. Questionable Quality.
I purchased this belt in the sky (blue) color in a size medium. I'm 34-26-36 for reference. The size was fine...I probably could have gone with a small. The problem was that the belt really didn't look or feel like anything special and the quality didn't feel the best. I own a few belts from Anthro and they are usually really lovely but this one is rough on the inside and the notches feel like they will stretch out completely after a couple wears. I could see this being a problem in the future - having a belt that pops apart...not good. I really liked the color - it's something different but the quality issue and lack of that special something in the design makes me not want to keep this at its current price. If it ends up on sale I'll rethink it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Knitterbox Been looking like a belt like this!
I really love this belt! I can't stand when the buckle of a belt worn with jeans shows a big bump in my shirt, so a belt like this that actually lays flat is great. It's also a breeze to undo but never comes undone on it's own. I bought it a week or so ago and have worn it at least 6 times with my jeans. The other reviewer is correct in that the inside is a little rough, the leather was a bit stiff when I first bought it too and the stiffness has gone away after a few wearings, so maybe the inside will become softer too. It's not a deal breaker for me but I wouldn't wear it over sweaters for fear of pulling, piling or snagging. I mostly bought it to wear with jeans anyway. I find it's a bit more orange than the tan pictured here. I bought a medium to wear with low rise jeans, for reference I'm a size 28/6 in jeans and have a 28" waist. It will still fit right at my natural waist, the end is just long, but looks cute tucked inside and left to hang. There are so many holes to work with that it's not a problem to wear it on the waist or low on the hips. I'm back today to buy the light blue one because I love my first one so much!
