Smooth obi wrap belt
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.

Very Cute Belt . . . but a caveat on fit
The obi-style belt is a versatile and attractive accessory to many outfits. That's why I was disappointed to be returning it due to a sizing issue. I normally wear a 14-16 belt with no problem. However, this comes in a range of 14-20 and 22-28. When threading the ties through the guide/slit, I could not cinch it tight enough to fit my waist--too much slack. When bypassing the guide and just wrapping the belt, I could tighten it sufficiently but ended up with waaaaay too much excess tie hanging down. I would recommend the belt, but just a warning if you are at the low end of the size range. Had I tried it on in store, I would have known better.
