Smooth obi wrap belt
One size fits few
This belt style is extremely up-to-date this fall, and I was excited to order this. Despite a size range on the label from 14-20, the obi's narrow self-loop could not allow the belt to be tightened enough to fit my 38" waist. Boo!
Add to the lack of fit the problem with tying the leather-like material: it is too stiff to easily tie into a bow as shown in photographs.
I returned this belt sadly - because I still want it even though I can't get one that fits...
Returning it in-store after purchasing online was very easy. Even though I didn't get what I originally wanted, thanks for making it easy to exchange, Lane Bryant!

Perhaps they tried to incorporate too many sizes in one range for this belt. I wear a 22, but the 14-20 size fit me better than the one I ordered. I had to go to store to exchange what I ordered online. : (
Love the look with dresses though!

Not Sure About This One
I have not had the opportumity too wear this belt for an entire day yet. It looks as though it would fold over itself over time. In trying it on, the strings are difficult to adjust to the tightness reauired. And the strings are very long, longer than needed. Which means I will have to cut them eventually. That is if I decide to keep it.

Cute but sizing is a bit off
I agree with the previous reviewer. This belt is SO cute. I love the way it looks with tops and skirts. The only con is that it doesn't come in tight enough if you wear a 14 on the top. It is adjustable but because there is a hole/loop in the back where you fasten the strings and the fabric slowly gets bigger to form the belt, it didn't get as tight as I would like it to go around my waist. I was then able to wrap the string around my waist two times which seems a bit much. I wish they hadn't done such a wide size range for the belt but it's still cute enough to pull it off.
