This is a good selection. I would go for the thong type rather than full seat as he will need to get used to them eventually!
 

As he’s young you don’t need the very quilted ones. 
 

This one is a narrow elastic which my son prefers:

You can also get it with a wide elastic:

I personally prefer Wear Moi for all my son’s dancewear. It’s lasted a long time with masses of washing!

Three of us here like the Wear Moi ones, so a good place to start. They're better padded than the quilted ones too which pretty much no one here liked after they started to hit adolescence - whether a 12 year old needs padding or not depends very much on the 12 year old, believe me. Go for a thong at his age - and the Wear Moi beats the capezio for comfort there, with a wider more comfortable thong.

 

I don't think we've ever had a Bloch dance belt.

 

Diverso make some nice ones too, and they're a good source for more interesting dance wear too.

My Ds has worn Wear Moi wide elastic dance belts from age 12 to 24 whilst training and dancing professionally. 
I will never forget taking him and his brother to a local dance shop to buy their first one. Their faces were a picture 🤣🤣

If he's at NB based in Leeds there's a dance shop in the Central Arcade off Briggate so if he wants to look at things before buying it's worth a stop by.  I've always found the staff very helpful.  I mean some times it's nice to look at things in a shop before buying.

100% agree

I have one that’s coming to end of life, but it might be approaching ten years old.
