    Which dipping belt should i get and what size?

    I'm a pretty small guy with a 28.7 inch stomach circumference. The belts i've seen online vary a bit between lengths.
    Ranging from 33.5 inches to 39 inches. I imagine i should just get the smallest one possible? Should i focus on chain length as well?

    These belts are my current options, not sure which one is best. They're all 15 dollars.

    This one is the most sold one and most common



    This one has the option of closing it tighter around the waist which might be good, because sometimes i feel like the belt wants to slip off my hips. Also not sure if the uniform width thickness everywhere will actually be a hindrance or not.



    This belt is the smallest in length, but it looks more flimsy.



    ------

    This is my own current belt. But because it's already permanently closed/attached to itself at the front and has this weird strap piece sticking out, the plates end up way too low whenever i wear it.

    Agree on this. Dip belts aren't typically sized. Most of what you have above sucks and I've owned one or two similar ones. The Spud is the standard design. Works for everyone since the dawn of time. Either get that or one EXACTLY like it in leather (preference and no functional difference).

    Trust me...avoid screwing with these. These are ill fitting junk for the most part - I have one downstairs that needs to be thrown out as a matter of fact...unused in 6 years. Just get the one that everyone uses and is happy with.

    I've had my ironmind one for 15 years and would never use a chain based belt.

    It's a great belt and I've had over 700lbs on it for belt squats with zero issue
