This belt is adorable and looks really cute on. It is delicate and has to be handled with care while being taken on and off, so I can see how other reviewers could say their's easily broke. The bow should be very carefully released from the belt part rather than pulled quickly apart, like you might a less delicate belt. However, it has seemed sturdy while buckled and even though I have a long length left over after buckling, this stays flat underneath the belt and doesn't annoyingly hang out.On the underside of the bow there are two metal pegs that sit an inch & a half apart. These are inserted into the holes on the belt. The length from the first hole to the last is 35 inches, plus there is another 5 of blank tail at the end of the belt, if you need to add another hole or two. (Total length = 40 inches). I love this belt so much that I bought it in three different colors!
