IsABelt review and giveaway

Let me start by saying I hate belts, I can't stand them because I never feel I can get them on the right notch. One notch it's too tight cutting me the other it doesn't pay to have a belt on because my pants are still too loose, plus they are extremely bulky. But I need a belt since I am in between sizes. I will spare you the gory details and me the embarrassment of  giving you exact sizes. I'll just be slightly vague one size is too small, the next size up way too big. I could have the dreaded plumbers crack or even worse, picture a grown woman walking the mall and her pants falling down or off. Doesn't sound like a pretty sight does it? So I avoid that catastrophe at all cost which means a belt.

When I was accepted as a reviewer for IsABelt I thought please be the answer to my problems. When I pulled out IsABelt I didn't think much about it. It is a thin piece of clear plastic (they have black too) I wasn't sure how it would work. It is adjustable because it fits sizes from 0 - 50 and it took me a while to adjust and I got very frustrated. But I read the instructions AFTER I started trying to adjust it. Save yourself a headache and read instructions first, like I should learn to . But here is one very helpful hint you cannot adjust the belt like you do a bra strap you have to feed the plastic through and pull down on the excess.

Adjusting was very easy after I read the instructions so I was good to go. I will say the magnetic pull was extremely strong they clasped easily together. I have my doubts but hey if it works I will be so happy. For the first test I put on my ill fitting pants (they all are) and IsABelt. I also had do some last minute adjusting because I had set it just a little too big, that was enough to make me lose my religion. Every time I would get it adjusted tighter I would pull the wrong way and loosen it again but as you can see it was my error, not the belts fault. I can say I was immediately amazed at how liberated I felt. There was no big belt squeezing me and digging into my stomach/midsection when I sat down, so that was awesome but I still had to see if it would do what a belt does.

So I headed out for my shopping trip I stopped at this store and that store and never really thought about it. Then half way through my Wal-Mart trip I remembered I was wearing it. I never had to pull my pants up. You may not think that's a big deal but with my family shopping trips can take 3 hours so I had been walking for an hour at the very least.

The next time I put on IsABelt was the same reaction "Wow, this feels like I don't have a belt on at all". I love it no more muffin top, no more squeezing like an anaconda, and no more pulling my pants up. Try and I be you'll realize with IsABelt who needs a "real belt".
