One of my favorite things: Hipsi Belts

For full blog post, please visit 

Last year, when I was at my college reunion, the wife of a classmate told me about a new line of belts – Hipsi belts - that is based out of her hometown (Seattle).  I decided to order one, and since then I have rarely worn any other belt. I now own several Hipsi belts in different colors, as well as several different designs of buckles.

This is my new favorite accessory, and without question the best belt I have ever owned!  This is not a paid promotion – I just like the belt, personally own several, and thought I would spread the word.

What do I like about my Hipsi belts? They are totally flexible in so many different ways. They are completely flat – no bulky buckle, which means that they do not create those annoying holes in t-shirts that so many regular belts make. Plus, they shield shirts from the zipper and the flap of pants and jeans, which also protects the shirt from getting holes and creates a flat and smooth profile. They are fully adjustable, so they can be worn with every type of jeans or pants however low or high they may be.  Hipsi belts are cute enough to be worn so that they can be seen, and have many great buckles that can be swapped in and out of the belt strap. But, they are also sleek and flat enough to be completely hidden when your shirt is over your jeans or pants.

There are three basic belt strap colors – black, brown, and champagne. I started with the basic black belt and buckle set, then soon after purchased the brown belt and buckle set (seen here, holiday set here, and the equestrian belt sets seen here).

There is a new holiday gift set that is being offered this year – a basic belt set (brown, black, or bubbly (champagne) that comes with two interchangeable buckles. The “brown eyed girl” belt set and tigerlily buckle is pictured above.

I have also bought some of their cute buckles to expand the look (seen here; I have some of the animal prints, and the chic Greek key designs).

The latch mechanism is different than regular belts , and takes a few times latching the belt to get the swing of it (there are detailed instructions included with the belt, and on the website), but once you get the hang of it you are set!

Hipsi belts can be found in stores around the US (and if you are a store owner, I highly recommend carrying these great belts), and they can be purchased online at http://www.hipsiworld.com

Here is a video that the inventors of Hipsi belts put on youtube, it helps give a feel for the versatility of the Hipsi belt.

As a special promotion for Things That Inspire readers, Hipsi is offering 15% off all orders made through their web site!

  1. All the current fashion magazines that I purview (doctor's office, etc. :) feature...belts! These look intriguing!! franki

  2. Love it! I will check it out for sure! Looks like they would go great with my friends line of purses, etc… called Old Clutch!

  3. Just bought the starter package - looking forward to having a great belt!

  4. Thank you for sharing, Holly!! Love the fact that it is flat!

  5. Oh my goodness, I have been needing a new black belt! My pants always have that annoying gap, and belts usually seem to pull them down with the big buckle. This looked promising so I ordered one (the great deal helped!) It literally came in like 2 days. I have to say...it is SUCH a great belt! It fits perfectly, and the way it adjusts is genius. I really really love it. Thank you for letting us know about it!

  6. Thank you, thank you for showing these belts. I really liked the idea of a flat belt, so I decided to give them a try. I ordered 2 & have worn one almost every day since they arrived. The strap has a wide range of sizes it can be adjusted to, and they really are completely flat, giving no bulk under shirts. I love these belts!!!

  7. Thank you for sharing with us these belts. I bought one based on your recommendation, and I love it! The belts are so wonderful. Now, I just want them in different colors…Thank you.
