The waist expands; it says up to 2 inches. However, when you stretch the waist band the full two inches, it distorts the pocket somewhat. I bought my husband two sizes (42 and 44) to see which looked better on him because he usually wears a 44. We stuck with the 44, which is comfortable on him. If you were actually a 43 waist, you could probably get by with the 42. Hope this helps.
