Amazon has a surprising new best-seller — a novelty belt without buckle.

The online retail giant “No Buckle Stretch Belt” is generating a lot of buzz since it was first mentioned on the web site, Tuesday. In the past three days, only the product – which comes in a variety of colors, including black, grey, blue and shades of brown – has received more than 1,500 customer reviews.

In short, the $13.99 buckle-free belt has garnered a 4.5-star rating, with around 80 percent of reviewers give it five stars in general.


The elastic band is said to be a “super comfortable and soft elastic belt for women/men/children and the old.” The product is also made with “high quality durable leather,” is also touted as a possibility for a “free and unconstrained movement,” according to a description of the Werforu belt.

According to the placement of the belt is intended to be less stress on the pants loops and the creation of a more unisex item that can adapt to pant sizes that range from 24-inch waist 48-inch waist.

The “No Buckle Stretch Belt” has led to a lot buzz since it was first listed on the Amazon website on 19 March 2019.

Many customers have raved about the belt online — explain why they prefer a buckle-less belt.

“Stupid, I know but I LOVE this band. I work as a custodian ( wife), and with this belt from my pants to stay in place all night. I am constantly bending over, sweeping and mopping of floors,going up and down stairs and lifting heavy objects. My pants never move or slip. Belt to adjust, suitable for a large range of waist sizes. The best part is not having a buckle that is found on the object or gets in the way of the road. I am planning to buy more for everyday use, they also look and they are comfortable,” one reviewer wrote.

“This is a great idea for a belt. I have always hated how a buckle makes my waist appear larger. This solves that problem. Also, an added bonus, not to undo a belt when they go to the toilet! A buckle is included in the case that you need an occasion. Love this!” another wrote.


“I’ve been looking for a band like this. I’m tired of small holes in the front of my shirt out of the buckles and so I started with the positioning of the seatbelt from my side to prevent this – not fun. So I’m glad to have found this design. I’ve tried it and love it. My belly looks flatter too, because the annoying buckle doesn’t stick out,” a third added.

But the accessory is still not won, anyone who has bought. Some said that they are more convincing for the commission of a buckle-free belt.

“Ripping the belt loops from your trousers if you get it tight enough to really get your pants in the first place. A belt loop is not a load-bearing attachment point. It is not meant to be pulled,” a 1-star reviewer claimed. “Put this on in the morning, I found it very fun, but at the end of the day my jeans were clearly not up to this on a regular basis. They seem to confirm this by advertising the closure. ‘Lotje’ is another word for ‘buckle’, and that largely defeats the point of a no-buckle belt, doesn’t it. Interesting concept, but does not work in the real world.”

“It works and it doesn’t bother me, but after their first use, I foresee an inevitable problem. My belts loops rip eventually. I attached a photo to show. Even on the most loose setting makes this belt aimlessly, it pulls on the loops. I have to tighten it to tight in the waist…so it really pulls at the loops. I would not buy this belt again,” a woman, who gave the item 2 stars, comment.


“It’s a great concept, but poor construction. The size control has two sharp metal points. If the belt rides over the waist of my jeans and touch my skin, this horrible little metal spikes scratch with the find of my back,” a third asserted.
