Our shop does not use waist size or pant size to determine belt sizing needed.
The easiest way to find your belt measurement is to use a belt that fits you well. Lay it out flat and measure from where the buckle prong intersects the outer edge of the buckle, to the most used hole.
If you don't have a belt that fits you well - Wearing the clothes you intend to carry a holster with, thread a tape through the belt loops and that will be the size you need.
If you don't intend to thread the belt through pants loops, measure over the clothing you will be wearing.
Our standard belts come with 5 holes - with the middle hole fitting the size ordered.
