Likewise, people ask, how do I find my belt size?

Lay the belt on a clean, flat surface. Start the tape measure at the hole you use and measure to the end of the belt, where it meets the buckle. Belts are measured in inches and you should round to the nearest inch. If you measure 36 inches, you will want to purchase a size 36 belt.

Subsequently, question is, what size is a 36 belt? Size 34 waist choose a 36 size belt, 36 waist choose a size 38 belt, 38 waist choose a size 40 belt, etc. If you wear an odd size pants, say a size 35, and sticking with the 1-2" rule, you would choose a size 36 belt.

In this manner, how long is a 42 inch deck belt?

How do you determine women's belt size?

A simple way to determine belt size is to simply “add 2″ to your trouser size. For example, if you wear a 34” waist trouser, then a 36 belt size will be a perfect fit. Most will find this simple formula works best for pants worn at a traditional height–close to the natural waistline.

How tight should a belt be?

A belt should be neither too tight, nor too loose, but somewhere in between. It should be tight enough to hold your pants, but loose enough not to crinkle them and strangle your waist.
