  • There is a slit at one side of the central panel so it will sit neatly at the back.
  • A versatile belt you can wear often plus it still fits you if your weight fluctuates. Please note though that it does not flatter apple body shapes.

  • We are sure to have the perfect belt, leather or suede, for you with our wide plethora of colours and widths from 3.5cm for those very short waisted to 4" in obi belts and tie belts.

How to wear an obi belt

Traditionally you wear an obi belt tied around the waist under the bust (Japanese obi belt style) - double round, then double simple knot to simply let ties hang down or create a bow which can be front, side or back. See our video showing how to tie an obi belt. This is a great cinch belt for hourglass curves or adding curves and in 3" can also be worn lower down or on the hips - experiment to find your sweet spot. So many options for how to tie your sash belt and damn, it looks good! Our dedicated obi site will show you how to tie an obi belt and outfit ideas e.g. adds delectable style to shapeless dresses and sweaters. Has limitless potential - wear over cardigans, jackets and coats too.

Size help: This Once Upon a Belt brand obi belt / sash belt comes in one size and has been tested to fit all. It is 99"/2.5m long in total to fits waists 25" to 41". This means at the upper end you won't be able to create a large bow, just tie with a double knot which still looks fab. Slimmer ladies have a few more ways to tie an obi belt or they can easily cut the ties down to their preferred length with some sharp scissors but this is rarely necessary.

How to measure a belt

General size advice

If you find you have ordered the wrong size, don't worry as you can return it for a refund or exchange (see returns tab for conditions) but it is really worth digging out the tape measure to save you extra postage costs and to fast track your road to satisfaction. Please ignore your naked vital statistics / mens trouser size / ladies dress size. Help is in our size guide video and below.

Only one size or no size shown?

Means we have only the one size left in this belt or it comes in one size only.

How we measure belts

From first hole to last hole for most standard belts and for straps we include about 1-2" for a buckle. Measurements given are approximate within a couple of cm and relate to same measurement as where you will wear it.

Secure payment methods via Sage Page

Full information regarding Tax Free Shopping and security of online payments can be found on our Payment and non-UK customers page. Here are the highlights:

Payment

Visa and MasterCard debit or credit payment cards accepted. Sorry no AMEX. You will need to enter or set up your secure password if you're a UK customer buying online – this protects you if your card is stolen and is a good idea. You can also place and pay for your order by phone if you are a UK customer. Orders are not placed until payment is successfully taken - anti-fraud checks are then performed before the order is dispatched.

Non-uk customers or tax exempt e.g. Channel Islands

  • We have customers all over the world. Add items you wish to purchase into the shopping bag and from there you can calculate the delivery cost based on weight by selecting your country from the list.
  • Tax Free Shopping: Displayed prices for products include UK VAT (sales tax) and exclude delivery costs. VAT is not charged to non-EU countries and VAT-exempt places like the Channel Islands - to remove the VAT the delivery destination must be a non-EU country or 'Jersey' for example, not 'United Kingdom'. Local import charges may apply to non-EU countries.
  • All prices are charged in UK sterling at checkout. International customers may be charged a fee by their bank for a sterling purchase and/or use a different currency conversion rate to our approximation available by selecting the most familiar currency in the top right of the page.
  • International orders are limited to 2kg of products (several heavy belts/buckles or over a dozen small ones) so if you are having problems checking out, try removing one or two from your shopping bag.
