I have a large bust matched with a short torso. I ordered the 14 which fit perfectly. The different widths of the horizontal stripes are very flattering, causing the illusion of a perfect hourglass figure. The rainbow colors are fun. I’m just having difficulty tying the belt so that it looks put together properly. Anyone have any hints?

Jennipher’s comment is only one of many we’ve received asking for tips on how to make a self-tie belt look just right. In fact, there are many ways to tie the sash that comes with our belted dresses and how you choose to tie your belt can say a lot about your personality. Do you double knot? You’re a no nonsense, no frills type (who will probably have a hard time getting out of that gnarly waist cincher!). Perhaps you prefer your standard maritime six fold eye knot? Look at you, you Class A overachiever! Fancy the bunny ear method? Chances are you’re charming, witty, and on the brink of a complete and total emotional meltdown.
Okay. So, how you tie your belt says nothing about your personality. Which grants you the liberty of having fun with all sorts of styles. Try a few of our favorites as seen below.
