Rated 5 out of 5 by consumer love it
I have a 27waist and 35hips and the smaller size is perfect. I can wear it at the waist with a dress or it fits just right with lower rise pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sparky I have three of these
I have these in white, English saddle and transatlantic blue (sorta navyish). I tried the desert camel but decided it was too much of a compromise between white and English saddle. The white is not stark white, rather a butter-creamy white, but still chalky. Better with white pants than formally white. Very happy with a width that's versatile enough to go around the waist without much bulk and hold up summer pants. It's not the jeans belt of your dreams but looks great because of the simple, braided texture. No holes, so infinitely adjustable. Unobtrusive yet effective accent piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pittchick4676 Quality Belt
I just received this yesterday and I can already tell it's going to be getting a lot of wear. Since you can buckle it wherever you like, it's perfect for the waist or hips. I know it will go great at the waist for dresses and also work with jeans. It's not as wide as I thought it would be, but that ends up working out better than I thought, since it's not focus pulling or cumbersome. It's extremely well made, and I know I'm going to have it for years. I picked up the brown color, and it's spot on with the picture. Definitely recommend! A very versatile piece at a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatieInBloom The coral color adds a great pop to brighten any outfit!
I bought this belt in the coral color. It adds a great pop of color to brighten up any spring outfit. The size of the belt is perfect for a hip or waist belt. I'm very happy that I purchased this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BostonB Great classic braided belt
I purchased this belt in the desert camel color (which is pretty much beige), and have been wearing it all of the time; this belt goes with nearly every pair of denim I own. The only mistake I made was ordering it in the larger size (I'm not particularly small, and wear a 27 or 28 in Madewell jeans), because there's far too much slack (even when I wear it on my hips). It runs slightly large, so if you're on the fence, it might be safe to go for the smaller size. (I would've returned it for the smaller size, but I bought the belt on finale sale, and didn't have that option.) Other than that, it's a very versatile closet staple for summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoStylist That's what I want
I had been looking for the right belt. When it arrived, I am pleased with the belt. I should have to choose size: small/ medium instead of medium/large. I am looking forward to wear it often in this summer!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mmmmadewell Fair Belt
Versatile belt. The best part about braid belts is no set holes. I ordered the XS/S in red and white. Pure white is an erroneous name choice. More like warm winter white or bone. It leans more towards a cream than a "pure white". The red is a nice, blue toned red. The belts are 7/8" wide, not 1". And since it must be ooooh so vexing for Madewell to put measurements in descriptions: The belts are 38" in total length.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SuperShopper It could have been a contender ....
I bought three of these belts -- red, blue and light brown. They are exactly what I was looking for and I would have been thrilled, except ...
the first one I put on (blue) wound up with a broken strand as I was buckling up. It's a small flaw at this point, but I am concerned about whether this was just a fluke OR a reflection of poor quality. The blue is going back and it will by Madewell's decision whether or not I am entitled to a refund.. Not a happy camper am I.
