Belt Slipping on Deadlifts


I've gone about 6 months without using a belt on deadlifts and want to start using a belt again. The problem is my mechanics have apparently changed, and when i put a belt on (even when i tighten the hell out of it) and bend down to get in deadlift position, the belt slips upwards on my back and loses tension.

I probably tighten and arch my lower back more at the bottom after training without a belt. Any suggestions on how to get the belt to stay in place?
