Anyone else have a problem with these belts being really small in general? I got the "Economy Power Belt" a while ago size large and I can barely fit into the last notch. It's starting to create problems when I deadlift because the belt is pinching me. I was going to upgrade it to a size XL but I according to the website large goes from 32-41, and XL goes from 34-42.. So I only get one extra inch? I had them put me down for a 2X XL which goes up to 46... I'm only like 230 lbs, kind of ridiculous that you have to order a SUPER EXTRA LARGE XTREME just to have a few extra notches. Any thoughts?

Doesn't sound right, I'm about 230 now and with my large I still have about 6 holes to work with. Mine's a Forever Belt, so I'm not sure how different the Econo ones are. What's your waist measurement?
I wear a large belt. Maybe your belly is larger than your waist? I don't know. I'm 260 right now. Although I'll admit, it's let out as far as it can go (lever belt) so if I do get a new one, I'd have go to with an XL
No idea, I don't have a big gut or anything like that though. I think the eco ones are just sized weird or something. Even when I was 210-220 or so I only had like 2 holes to work with. The xlarges are barely larger than the larges, and the large is barely any bigger than the medium and so forth. How tall are you guys?

Did you measure your actual waist over your navel or go by pant size? There's a big difference. I just ordered a belt from Bob's Belt and it was the first thing out of their mouth when I told them the size.
