The description of this product contains "inch" measurements. Maybe "inches" measurements are different for kids. I purchased the belt that said 30 Inch. While the belt was indeed exactly thirty inches from the tip of the buckle to the tip of the belt, it was not meant for a 30 inch waist. The holes on the belt were meant for a 26-28 inch waist. Had I known I would have purchased a size up. Perhaps this was my fault for not carefully reading the description, I haven't gone back to read it again, but be forewarned.
