this belt has been recommended a number of times on this forum, but I've always resisted buying it, some how $50 seemed like a lot for this item. and I wondered if it would look cheap and if it would really be as smooth and "invisible" as it claimed....well, I should have know that if fabbers were recommending it, it would be what, well, fabulous. I finally ordered it last week, it arrived on Monday, and I wore it twice this week...I ordered the navy, and now I'm going back and ordering the white and maybe the black
