If waist is 44 inch will this belt fit, or do I need larger belt
Hi Charlotte - that will fit without any problems. The belt has 45" marker but there's another 2" from that area to the point the mechanism contacts. That is where we measure from. Though we say 45", it's closer to 47" but we don't want to confuse people. This size will work with you without having to cut. If need be, it would only be an inch or so. Happy Thanksgiving.
