The Cinch Belt is designed to have minimal overhang to avoid floppy ends. While it may seem a little smaller than what you are used to, as long as you stay true to pant size, this sizing will work. If you wish to have a longer tail OR are on the size cusp (a 34 pant size, for example), we recommend sizing up.
Medium: 34 - 38
Large: 38 - 42
