    Attention Girth belt Gurus! sizing help

    Ok guys,
    I'm looking to buy the Mohair girth belt.
    I've heard of shrinkage from dying it .
    Also , I need it to fit over the armor & jumpsuit.
    I'm a 36" waist (yeah I know, I know)
    what size do I need to buy?


    I found a 42" but don't know if will shrink enough.
    I bought a 36" 60% rayon / 40% wool girth from Stateline tack (on sale mind you) & wondered if it would shrink too much.


    Help a bruva out.

    Get a board and put 4 screws/nails in it to hold the belt at the length you need it.
    Once you dye it, while it's still wet, stretch it onto the board. Mine was a little tight getting it back on the screws but once on there you're set. Let it dry and you're good to go.

    *ETA: I'm sure you already know the buckles shouldn't touch each other on you, but just in case.
