Rated 4 out of 5 by reg_t5 Love this belt
I love this belt, I wear with most of my maxi dresses. Got this belt in black and I find it does "bleed" a little on my light colored clothes so be careful. Otherwise love this accessory belt.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kvon Nice idea, execution could be better
I got As-is for about $50 and I still think it's overpriced. I like it and I'm keeping, but quality could be better. The long leather ties are folded over on back, not stiched, so they look like they will pucker open soon. On the main part, the longer-top piece does flop around a bit , but that's the way its made to be. I'm afraid to tie it too tight and I don't think it'd stay anyway. It's not necessary to make it really tight. I actually haven't worn it for hours yet, but hopefully I won't have to fuss w/ it all day long. Too bad there is not a slit through it that could help hold it together better.
Also, There was initially a (chemical?# odor that has subsided now. I do like that its soft matte leather ,and the black one hides the stitching and other less than perfect details
I am at my lifetime heaviest #5' 4 /175+) right now and its mostly in my tummy, but I think I can make the M/L work. It gaps open a bit at the back, but to me that looks better and neater than twisting or folding over if I got a larger size. Hopefully the gap will close and the ends will meet as I lose weight! I'm recommending because of the concept and utility rather than the details/ execution especially as relates to pricing. Hope the next version is better.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Major615 Defective!
I am disappointed to say I recieved my 1st defective as is item from QVC. The belt has two straps of leather that are stitched together and the top layer is several inches longer than the bottom so there is no way to wear this belt. I am really suprised QVC would send this out even as is. After 20+ successful as is orders I am not sure I will chance it again.

I wouldn't have bought this at the regular price but at the "as is" price, it's really a steal! Still more than I would pay for a belt but this belt is an investment piece which is timeless and oh so nice. The leather is very soft and pliable which makes it easy to tie in a bow and it falls very nicely. I've got the black, the British tan and the Blush...at this, where are the savings?? You would think now I have an entire wardrobe of Obi belts to cover just about any outfit in my closet...unless, another color may pop up in the "as is" section in my size! I know I would be pressed not to snatch it up too! In regards to sizing, I wish GILI would make an xxsm-sm size because even the smallest size is too big for me and it crisscrosses in the back. I've seen only one presentation in which Lisa Robertson takes the time to specifically address this issue and to make the point that it is OK for it to be that way. In the more recent presentations, all they show is how good it looks in the front but (I believe intentionally) avoid pointing out how it's supposed to fit in the back. Instead of stating the length of the entire belt, they should state the length of the wide part, minus the ties. This would give customers a better idea of how it would fit. All and all I do love the belt and I am glad I decided to get it! I am thankful for the savings which allowed me to try it and to get more than one color!

The leather is so soft and supple, plenty of leather to wrap around even if you have some belly. Received mine in black option (XL/1X). to flatter my figure I will be wearing higher up on the waist, but with flowing tops and A-line dresses, I'm confident I can rock this belt. hoping more color options will become available on the "as is" listing soon.

Best thing I ever bought from QVC this piece is finished beautifully A size chart would be helpful but I lucked out and guessed right on the first go
Rated 4 out of 5 by pookie52 Nice belt
This belt is very cute and looks nice on. The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is: When you wrap it around you, it looks a little funny in the back where the belts criss crosses over itself. The lines of the belt does not match up with each other. I also got this belt on the "as is" product list. So I only paid $42.00 for it. I don't think it is worth the full price of $86.00. That is my opinion anyways.

I'm in love with the OBI belts. I first purchased the wider G.I.L.I. OBI belt and it's my go to belt as it makes me feel and look like a million bucks. It completes/changes the look of the most simplest outfit TOTALLY! So now I have just ordered and received this softer leather OBI belt in black and British tan. It's a softer leather and the M/L fits my size 12 frame although it's a little hard getting it straight in the back. If your smaller you might not have that problem. Both are winners but I'm partial to the wider belt since it's sturdier. I took away a star just because I have to line it up myself but I plan to keep this one in the British Tan and I'm on the fence with the black one since I have the wider one. I may keep both in this softer leather and order the blush and grey also. Ugh, I want them all!!!
