Lovely teal color, but poorly made
Date:September 24, 2013
I bought this on sale; otherwise, I'd have gotten a size L based on other reviews that report that the belt runs a bit smaller than sizing these days. The color, I'm happy to report, matches the lovely rich and subtle shade shown on my screen.
But, I was bummed to find that the holes are too small for the...prong (? not sure of belt vocab here!), and that the loop is cut too small. Yes, with some wiggling and struggling, I can the prong through the holes, and the belt end through the loop, but when I'm in a rush in the morning, that's exactly the kind of extra time I don't want/need to spend! Unfortunately, GH is out of stock on the teal belts; otherwise, I'd try another one.

I was attracted to this belt because of the dark teal - one of my favorite colors. I am so pleased that it goes with many other pieces in my wardrobe. It seems to run a little small - it fits perfectly at my waist but is not able to go very low on the hips, but low enough for my blue jeans. It is a fun, well made belt and I am sure to be wearing it for many years to come.
I am usually GH size 8 in pants and ordered M in the light brown belt. As for size it is TTS, but if you like to have extra length or like to wear it on hips order size up. As for color, looking at the picture, I was expecting more of a cream/pearl color, but it looks just like a regular very light brown in reality, with just a tiny bit of sheen. I still do like it a lot for the great design and quality and will keep it.
I'm not sure why the other reviewer didn't return her belt if it was so small because GH is so great with returns. However, I have the belt in the pretty neutral tone and it goes with everything. I ordered a size L even though I'm a M in most things and wear a size 6 in pants. I like to have that bit of extra to loop around and hang down so I make sure I order a size larger. If it wasn't big enough, I'd just return it and get another. It's just a belt, but this one seems to get lots of compliments for its versatility and that makes me happy! :)

This belt was too short! I gave it to my very slender (size 12 children) 11 year old daughter. It fits her very well. It was a medium! I usually wear a size 6.
