Invisibelt Giveaway


My best friend and my worst enemy: my jeans.  I like to get the lowrise with a little stretch in them.  For me they are more comfortable, they look better, and they give the illusion that I actually have a butt.  My jeans and I get along great for the first 3? 4 hours?  After that the honeymoon is over and we start tug-o-war...and I always lose.  
I didn't realize how ridiculous I looked yanking my pants up until I caught someone doing a tug through the window heading into Target.  I laughed until I realized it was my reflection. 
So why not just wear a belt?
1) I like to wear long, form fitting shirts and hate the bulge of a belt under that. 
2) I'm always between the hole sizes in belts.  It's either too tight or too loose.  
So where do I turn?  The Invisibelt.
1) It holds my pants up with zero belt bulk under my long shirts.   The only bulk that's left is up to me to take to the gym.  It's great for any kind of pants, including dress pants.
2) It adjusts like a bra, so I can get the perfect fit.  Plus, the belt itself has just a tiny bit of stretch.  I've never had to undo my Invisibelt because I ate one-too-many brownies.
Con: I like that it gets the perfect adjustment, but don't much like how the buckle or adjuster looks.  But, considering that the point is for the belt to not be seen, it really isn't much of a con.

Bonus Pro: Huge score for the traveling mom!  Never have to hold your toddler and your pants up while your belt goes through airport security.  The belt is completely metal-free.  Forget about moms, everybody loves that!!  

You can get the Invisibelt for $19.95 in clear and now (my favorite) in black.  The same belt works for sizes 0-14 (so it works for post-pregnancy, too!).  Or get the plus size belt that fits up to 4x.

Who wants to win an Invisibelt?  Comment with your reason for loving the Invisibelt, along with your color preference, and TWO lucky readers will win!!  Contest ends at midnight on Tuesday, March 18th.  Thank you, Invisibelt

I have been wanting something like this for ever!! Love it. I also hate the bulk from a belt that you have under your shirt and never knew quite what to do about it. If I didn't wear the belt I was constantly pulling up my pants - if I did then it drove me crazy to see that belt buckle sticking out underneath my shirt. Genious!!!

Erika said...

How cool! I'm heading to the airport tomorrow and again in May and would LOVE to have one of these to wear. I hate taking off my belt at the security gates. One trip I even made the mistake of putting a belt on my toddler. Ha..I never did that again!

Tanya and Colin said...

I am the reflection of the woman always pulling my pants up! At some point in the last four years I have been pregnant and therefore my weight has gone up and down; along with my pants. With a toddler and a baby on the way I feel that I will lose the battle of the pants; no free hands! And I am with you friend I can't stand the bluge under the shirt. I have enough bumps to conseal there I don't need another!

Liz said...

Wow! What a fantastic idea! Is anyone else out there ever wondering why they didn't come up with something like this? I, too, am the hoister of pants. I have just started wearing a belt again after finally losing most of the last baby weight, but then there is the buckle issue. This sure beats it all. I am glad that it comes in two colours. Personally, I would go for the black one for the times that a belt may end up showing. Thanks for introducing this product to us and for the great freebie!

Felicia & Brandon said...

I hate the bulk of regular belts. This seems like the perfect solution. Plus, no metal! I'm in! I can't tell you how many times I've forgotten to take my belt off at security.
Black, please!

holy crow i love this idea! my husband is always on my case for not wearing a belt and forever hiking my pants up. he says it's emabrassing for him...um. hello! i am the one looking like the idiot jumping around trying to keep my butt crack from hanging out. i win that argument!
so i would have to say the clear one is ideal for me, since wearing a lot of white shirts would show the black line if i were wearing that one.
heaven knows i don't need another thing to take off at the airport...(i think taking off my flipflops and walking barefoot is tragic enough! yup, actually happened..i wasn't thinking.) thanks!

carie said...

this is really cool. I would love one!

Sarah said...

I am on weight loss mission and this will be the best accessorie! I am right now between sizes so these belts are just what I need! I would love the clear one!

Jon and Angela said...

How nice would it be to not have to take off your belt to go through security!! I like the black version.

Denise said...

I love this idea.

carla anne said...

I love this for so many reasons. I think every woman needs one! I love the black one because if your shirt comes up at least it doesn't look like an invisible bra strap you jerry-rigged.And what a life saver after you have a baby. Awesome invention.

Christina said...

Genius! I always have a gap in the waist of my pants, so this would be a great solution.

Ada Bowler said...

This look great! I hate the buckle bulge, too, and am constantly fighting my pants to stay up. I'd love to try this out!

Em and Ms said...

What an awesome product! I hate the belt buckle bulge, so that is a definite plus for me. Because of my shape, I can never get pants to fit just right and so I always need a belt. I'd choose black.

Mama J said...

I'm so with you on this!

Natalie said...

Ummmm...yes...I TOTALLY need this. I always feel like "frump girl" when my pants start falling off!

Kristin and Mike said...

I'd go clear! This is a great invention. I low t for the same reason as you. No more belt bulge. And an added plus is I just had my 3rd child and will be in-between sizes for a while!

Aubrey said...

I love the clear one, and it would be great for me b/c I always get that weird open bulge in the back of my pants...not so attractive.

Joni said...

PAAALLLEEEEEAAASSSEEEE pick me. I will definately have to put this on my list!

Dallin & Ashley said...

Oh my goodness, this is like my dream come true! I was just wearing a pair of my favorite jeans yesterday and I was doing the same thing you were describing! I am always having to tug at my pants to keep them up, and I hated wearing bulky belts too! This is the best idea ever. I DEFINITELY need one!

Mel said...

What a brilliant idea! I have been struggling with my jeans lately and I've thought about going to a taylor to get them fitted better, but that is really costly! This belt is PERFECT! I would love to win a clear one! Good bye tug-of-war hello free hands!

Jenny said...

This is a great idea! I hate that belt-buckle bulge under fitted shirts. The clear one looks great!

Melissa said...

I wish you could give every mother in the world this belt. I have sat in the back at library storytime, with a whole row of exposed mom bums facing me waaaaay too often. We as mothers definitely need to get over our aversion to belts, and I would love to personally begin this revolution by trying out the invisibelt. It sounds like a wonderful way to preserve my dignity!

shan said...

i saw these on tv and i thought, "I would love one!" Great idea!

h-bomb said...

oooo i would love one, i love low rise jeans but haaate how they stick out in the back. perfect solution to a bulky belt. i love the black one

Anonymous said...

I would love one of these! Right now i'm preggo, and have the problem of keeping my low-rise preggie pants up! I KNOW I have the same problem when i'm sans child in belly!! I would love the black Invisibelt for sure!!

Kim and Nathan said...

I am always needing to wear a belt, but hate that pooch look it gives with the longer length shirts. I would love to win the clear. Thanks

Jillian said...

I love the idea!!! I hate the bulk from belts also, I also get holes in the bottom of my shirts from the buckle on the belts. I have a little baby and find it extremely difficult to tug my pants up with one hand and try to hold her with the other hand. This belt is ingenious!!! I have to win! I need a clear one, as it is more versatile. Sweet!

amy said...

Your description of love/hate with heans is exactly what I go through. My pants get just a little big after a few hours. This is a wonderful solution! I love it and could really use it.

Jennifer Lyn said...

Wow! What a great find! I am always trying to find a belt that fits and I am ALWAYS between holes or have to poke a new one. My fav color is black!

Ricki said...

So cool! I hate yanking on my pants all day, but have never liked the belt-bulge either. I am currently in-between sizes because of child bearing or too many brownies (is anyone ever at their "normal" size anyway and I would love one of these in clear!

Kristie said...

I have the exact same problem - I like to wear long, form-fitting shirts and that bulge in the front is not fun. This looks fantastic!

Solomon Family said...

That bulge that you always get with your pants always drives my nuts! plus I just had twins! so I need some help till I can go back to exercising etc hahahaha I love that there's no metal too! and not having to fit into a hole, I often struggle to get the right fit, and end up not wearing a belt, but pulling up my pants all the time... I wonder what I look like in a store window??? hehehe

Michelle said...

I also wear a lot of the long, form-fitting shirts, and I hate having a bulky belt sticking out under them. I would love to win a clear one! :)

Holly said...

What a great idea. I can never find the right fit in jeans and am constantly pulling my pants up. This would also be perfect for me with my pre-maternity jeans dilemma. I can't quite fit in the maternity but can't quite do the normal jeans. Which leaves me with the elastic on the button and always tugging at my jeans.

Julie said...

love it!

Alicia said...

My 11 month old is always pulling himself up to standing on my pants, but it's always pulling my pants down! I would love an invisibelt.

Corinna said...

I thought I was the only woman on the planet with sagging and dropping pants and I thought the reason was that I don't know which style jeans to wear. I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. Yes, I also hate the added bulk from the belt I wear. This new bulkless belt is a great invention!

Matt and Doreen said...

I love how you can wear longer shirts and not look 10 pounds heavier because of your belt buckle. I would love a black one.

Crystal said...

My old belt is falling apart and I've been looking for a new one. I'm too cheap to buy one to match each "outfit" so this would be perfect!!

Susanna said...

I saw that on another blog, and thought it would be really cool to get one. I'd love to win this!

Wendy said...

What a great idea! I love it!

Anne said...

I love that it doesn't make a bulge under a shirt! That is the main reason why I don't where belts! I would use the clear one more than the black one.

Dan, Heidi, & Maddy said...

I hate when I wear tight shirts and I have a huge bulge from my belt. I would love the clear belt.

Sheena Larkin said...

How perfect - this is just what I need. I hate wearing belts but I too have realized I look ridiculous when I am constantly pulling up my pants.

Dawnell said...

Are you sure it was a reflection, and not me? Black please.

Christopher said...

This would be the perfect solution for me! I find that post-pregnancy my jeans are especially fickle - as my hips are constantly changing sizes! But I have the same issues with belts - they just add bulk. I would LOVE this product and use it every day!

Leasha said...

This would be a much needed solution to the pregnancy/post-pregnancy constantly changing waistline issue I have...not to mention not having to take it off at the airport during travel with a kid, stroller, bags etc. would make me very happy!

Wren said...

I like jeans with a little stretch too, but after a few hours, my jeans have sagged so much that all I need for the gangsta look is some calico boxers. Trust me when I say that wouldn't be a pretty picture.

Brent and Ashley said...

So cool! I love not ever having to pull and tug again! I love the clear!! Thank you!!

LobotoME said...

that looks great!

jenny :)

Ashley said...

Fabulous idea! It's too hard to pull up your pants while carrying a child in one arm and your bag in the other.

carrie said...

Oh how I need this!! I just had a baby(#5) and my fat jeans are getting too big yet my regular size is too tiny. I hate to keep buying more pants until the long awaited pre-pregnancy size returns. I'd love the clear one to help hold in the remaining gut.

Ana said...

Count me in! Black, please.

Jennifer Isom said...

Whey didn't I think of that? Cool!

Courtney said...

Wow, I sooo need a clear one of these! I refuse to wear belts b/c of the bulky buckle, but my 1 yr old daughter is always pulling my pants down and I am sick of battling with her over it. I would love to win this!

Holly said...

Ooooh...want it, need it.

Kelly said...

this has to be the best invention! i have never heard of it before.I have been loosing weight and in between sizes so I hate the way my belt bulges out of the shirt also. this will be perfect. thanks for the chance to win and for the info.

K is for Calligraphy said...

This is such a great idea! I would love to have one for the same reason...to be free from the belt bulge when wearing a long shirt with jeans! Hooray for invisibelt and your awesome giveaways!

Heather said...

I think the clear would be awesome! how cool is this product! Seriously would solve a lot of pant issues for me. this is great.
