Tape measure at the ready


Unsure of your perfect fit and which size belt you should order? Look no further than our fit guide, simplified to help you find your perfect sized belt which will then be custom made for you. 

Understanding belt sizing

You may be questioning why you can't use your clothing size for a reference. The reason is because you need extra material to go over your clothing when worn and a small amount of belt carried on from your chosen belt loop. Because of this belts are typically 2 inches larger than your waist or hip size.

Belts usually have five holes, and are typically sized to the middle hole. Giving some flexibility with the size you purchase.


To make is easy we'll give you two simple ways that with the right size chart and a little measuring, you can make sure your ROMA by RL purchase fits perfectly.

Measure yourself

Option one is simply measure yourself.

For your perfect belt size either measure your waistline or hip circumference with a tape measure, the point where you normally wear your trousers comfortably.

Make sure the tape measure is level and sitting at the point where you would like to wear your new belt.


Once you have this measurement in inches then remember that to find your belt size you should account for some added volume that your clothing will add. 




Here at ROMA we advise that you purchase a belt which is one size up from your waistline size, making your belt 2 inches bigger. 

So if your waistline is 28 inches, we’d recommend buying a 30 inch belt. 

Measure an existing belt

Option two is to measure a belt you already own and you know fits you comfortably.
To do this lay out your belt on a flat surface making sure the buckle is on the left hand side. With your tape measure, measure from the far left end of the buckle along to your favourite belt hole. 
This measurement will already account for your clothing as it is your chosen belt hole size. Therefore if the measurement is 34 inches, then you can purchase a 34 inch ROMA belt with confidence that it will fit perfectly.

And there you have it.. Your perfect fit in the time it takes to read a tape measure. 

Just pick which option works best for you and start exploring our collection.

Once you have your perfect belt size you can order again and again with confidence.



It's important to note that leather will adjust and mould to the wearer over time, so the longer you wear a leather piece, the more comfortable and unique it will feel.


  If you would like to wear your belt in other ways and have a versatile fit, we would also recommend to add extra belt holes to help accommodate usage for your piece. Please message for any personal requirements.
