    I am average sized with a short torso. I have found that 1-1.5 inches width is best, anything wider looks weird on my short torso. For style, the off-center ones like sash A made me look bigger. The most flattering looks IMO were blingy belts that were widest in the center and tapered off to the sides. kind of like this: 

    Hope that helps. GL on your search!!

    I think the thicker rhinestone sash. I don’t think a thin one would be as flattering. I’m just designing my belt now and I sooo love the blingy sashes. Also, if you put it on the smallest part of your waist then it really helps define it.

    I tried on both thinner, thicker, and sashes with just appliques, and the thicker belt almost always looked best on me. I love the added bling too!

    A thicker belt with either bling all around or less bling on a ribbon with some contrast to the dress is what I’ve found most flattering. I’m not plus size but I am curvy, and I was surprised by how much worse the thinner belts looked on me than the thicker ones.

    @kearaaaaaa:  I lthink the ones that are higher in the middle and taper onthe sides are the more flattering.

    @kearaaaaaa the dark belt that I did not buy and don’t know the price of I found at the Bridal gallery In new West. The belt that I wore I rented from the place that I bought my dress which is MJM weddings in South Surrey. she rents dresses as well, I do not know if she will rent belts to someone that doesn’t rent or purchase a gown from her, she has a small shop out of the guest house of her home.
