This belt is great! Loved that I could adjust the distance/length from 46" down to where I needed it to be and still not have too much extra belt hanging out once tightened. To the person who said that the belt is hard to undo and that purchasing this belt may make it hard to go to the washroom (lol), I say wow! Really? Once you receive the belt and familiarize yourself with how to unlock it (before you put it on!) it's a breeze :) The best feature is the ratchet by far. I've never been able to find a happy point where a belt is perfectly adjusted as my stomach fills with food or alternatively empties or if a thick shirt is tucked in or un-tucked. The versatility of this belt beats all the other belts in my closet! I love showing it to friends and family because it is that unique. This was a good Groupon find for me.
