    My waist is 30, but when I ordered a 32 for them I had to make an exchange for a 30.

    So it seems ones should order their natural waist size? I'm planning on placing an order this week, natural waist is 32/every now and again 33.

    Just my personal experience - I am a 32 and I ordered a 32. It fits fine, but I fluctuate between the 3rd and second loosest holes. Personally, for my tastes, I would rather have another inch or two of leather, so if I ever ordered another one I would size up to 34. But I cant swear that this wold work for everyone.

    I also just ordered another belt from somewhere else which is also a 32 but 2 inches longer than the Tanner.

    My experience was I had to order true size. I had to send back the belt that I ordered a size up because I was on the last hole with room to spare.

    I ordered a 32 (my true waist size) and when I put it on it seemed small but I was able to get it to the second hole. If you want it to fit in the middle hole I would say size up 1.

    It seems like everyone has their own sizing advice for tanner belts.

    Belts are easy to size - get a tape measure and measure your own (well fitting) belt, and ask for measurements from shops.

    The size down/size up business is garbage - just measure!
    Will save you money and headache.

    My experience ordering a size up was that it was far too big. If you buy a Tanner belt go TTS off your waist size. Or, you can follow the very precise and detailed sizing instructions on LeatherGoodsConnection and not only get your size right the first time, but also equal or better quality leather and construction, better hardware, and faster/better customer service at a better price. I own belts from both companies.
