Classic everyday belt
I use to love this belt. It was sturdy and it lasted almost 2 years. Now they changed the quality and the belt is so flimsy. Its only made of 80% leather while the old version was bonded leather. This everyday belt, if used everyday will break in about 3 months.

Love doesn't last...
I wanted to love this belt. I find it a bit pricey but figured it's a staple for any wardrobe. I wore it often for about 5 months and then from the hole that I commonly use to the front of it completely broke off. The belt wore through and I was left holding just the front tip. I'm extremely disappointed that at this price point they can't make a belt that lasts at least six months.

No longer recommended
I have bought four of these belts over the past 6 years. The last one I bough this month was just terrible. It used to be a decent leather (it even had that great leather smell) that didnt feel or look like it would fall apart after the first use. This belt was flimsy, didnt have the little thing to hold the excess belt in place, was uncomfortable because it wasnt a supple leather~ it is stiff.
I will not be purchasing another. This makes me sad as I used to recommend this belt to other big girls.

First and foremost - thank you, Lane Bryant for offering the basic black belt (AND in silver-tone) in this size. -It is difficult to find.
Secondly - the belt is near perfect (I would have rated it with 5-stars) but the part of the belt that holds the excess belt (piece) after it is buckled does not adjust and, therefore, the flap sticks out away from the pants and body. I need to figure-out a way to keep it towards the body so it does not look strange.
It will be my "go to" and favorite belt for jeans (though it is classy enough to wear with business pants) once I figure out a way to keep the flap towards the body.
