There is no wonder that it continues to be one of Canada’s most beloved travel destinations. In a city filled with some of the top restaurants, shops, and attractions in the country, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by choice. To help streamline the process, we asked two Vancouver insiders to share their best-of-the-best picks for where to eat, shop, and see when visiting the city. The Tour Guides We reached out to two of our favourite Vancouverites to give us the low-down on how to properly tour the city. As young and vibrant urban professionals, Melanie Auld and Nikki Smith represent the new spirit of Vancouver.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
