Sizing

Choosing the best size obi wrap belt

Widths

Our obi belts are sold mostly in 3″ widths with a few 4″ ones because if you are not blessed with a supermodel torso a 3″ will work best and can also be worn lower down i.e. below the waist.

If you are short waisted or very petite a tie belt may be a better option for you.

Leather tie belt is a narrower width so great for those who are short waisted or to wear with cardigans or macs

Lengths

The obi belts are one length with a little variation because of the variation in the size of hides. They will fit ladies from 25″ waists up to plus size in most colours. The difference being is that a smaller lady has extra length to create a bow if she wishes to or she can just use sharp scissors to cut it to size. Size UK 8/10/12 ladies (i.e. waists up to 29″) can create a knot at the front and tie it at the back too – please let us know when you check out that you would like to ensure you get one long enough to do this.

Plus sized ladies?

If you are plus size please let us know your waist measurement in cm or inches in the comments field when placing your order so we can pick out a longer obi belt for you unless the product sizing info says specifically that it is a 99″ / 2.5m long belt. We can cater for up to a 41″ waist where you will be able to double wrap and tie but not do a bow. When you give us your waist size we aim to give you 8 inch ties each end to tie when double wrapped. DO NOTE that some 4″ obis only go up to 88″ long and this is stated in the description on the product page for that belt.
