You may have noticed on my instagram feed that I recently got a Gucci Belt. Ever since I started posting outfits with my Gucci Belt, I’ve been bombarded with questions about how I made the purchase, figured out sizing and made a Gucci belt work for my body.
So, today I’m sharing how to buy a Gucci belt in plus size:
Step One: Choose Your Size
You need to measure your waist in cm, you know where you like to wear your belt (high on the waist, low on the hips, etc.) so measure your waist exactly where you’d want the belt to live. I suggest putting on your favorite pair of high waist jeans and taking the measuring tape around the waist band, since that’s where your belt will be.
I’ll let you know right now that the largest Gucci belt size is 120cm.
I bought a black Gucci Belt online in 120cm and it was actually too big for me. I had to decide if I wanted to go to a shoe cobbler and have them add holes, or if I wanted to get a smaller size.
I ended up getting a smaller size and exchanging the black for this gorgeous blush Gucci belt because everyone has black and I wanted something a little different/unexpected. It also isn’t sold out as much.
Special Tip: You can also just go into the store and try on belts. I know it feels like it may be embarrassing if it doesn’t fit, but if you do your initial measurements and are clear that the 120cm or less range will work for you, then you can go in confidently and play. Sadly, these belts are in high demand and you’ll probably end up ordering the belt online anyway because that’s the quickest way to get one, but I’m just throwing another option out for you.
