Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer WAAAAAY TOOOO BIG!
I absolutely love this belt. It is beautiful, however, the sizing is so off. I bought the 1X and it wrapped around twice and hung towards the floor. I read the measurements on the smaller size, but it would have been too small. I sadly have to return it but am hoping GILI will read all of the negative comments about the sizing and make a L/XL. I would be back in a flash to buy it. I am so disappointed!
Ladies, please take your measurements before you buy this belt to be sure it will fit!

The belt itself is beautiful. I do agree with those that said the sizing is off. I think that one size is totally missing. We need a L/XL so that it would be adjustable. I thought I would be able to wear it between the waist and the hip, but the M/L isn't long enough and the XL/1X is way too large. Seems that all of the gili belts are missing the L/XL size.
Rated 3 out of 5 by katznfrogs Semi fabulous. Sizing issue
Luv this belt. Luv the style however I agree with the person who is also a size 12/14. There is a 17 inch difference between the s/m and the l/xl. I bought the l/xl much too large. Exchanged for a s/m too tight. I even considered making more holes for a better fit. Nope. Sadly I've had to send both back. Jill you missed the mark this time. I'm disappointed. I really wanted this belt.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DMM07 GREAT ACCESSORY BELT
I purchased this belt in both colors and I constantly wear them. They are well made and the leather is flexible but not so soft that it looses its shape. Because the belt fits loosely, as opposed to the OBI which I wear tighter, there is no need to adjust your clothing to make sure that nothing has puckered. People were upset that there were no instructions. Jill shares how to wear it in the video. It goes around the waist to hip area twice. There is no wrong place to have the buckle. I usually wear mine so that the buckle section is the under section where the belt overlaps so that more of the decoration is visible. The buckle looks great in in the middle as well as on a hip. It all depends on what it is worn with. The belt did have an odor when I first opened the packaging that disappeared.

I am an xxs in qvc sizing and the xs/s was too big. It just slung down too low. I like my belts at the natural waist so I will stick to my favorite obi. I don't find I can wear it with many things. The studs give it an edgy look that maybe looks good with jeans and a simple shirt only!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Try It and Buy It Sizing Way Off
I agree with one of the reviews that the sizing is way off in this belt. I truly love the G.I.L.I line of clothing but this one is beautiful but off. It should have been L/XL to fit the size 12-14 ladies. It would have worked out perfect. XL/1X wrapped around me 3 times. So sorry that this did not work for me. I have a pretty narrow waist also. I'll just stick with the Obi. Can't go wrong there.
Rated 4 out of 5 by californiadreaming Very Hip Belt
I wear an XS In clothing, so I ordered the XS/S size in this belt. However, it seemed too small on me as I prefer to crisis-cross it a bit & wear it more down on my hips. So I exchanged it for a M/L size, & now I can wear it resting on the top of my hips as I wanted. I love the silver domed studs on this belt. To me, there is way too much gold hardware in the GILI line. I never buy the GILI handbags due to the garish gold hardware--same with the new GILI jewelry.
Rated 1 out of 5 by mametia Sizing way off in xl/1x
Be sure to look at lengths of the belts in various sizes. In all sizes EXCEPT xl/1x there is about a 5 inch increase from one size to the next. EXCEPT xl/1x where the increase in size is 17 inches. Which means if you truly are an xl this belt will be WAY too big, but when I reordered it in m/l it doesn't come close to fitting- b/c it's 17 inches smaller. So there appears to be no fit option for the true size 14 woman. Really disappointing since I love the belt!
GILI- PLEASE CORRECT THIS SIZING ISSUE FOR US SIZE 14 WOMEN!!!
