So…pants tend not to fit me right. Loose at the waist, and tighter elsewhere 🙂
Found this solution that I think is a great alternative to all the different things I have tried (and I have tried MANY). I’ve used belts which leave a belt bulge that I detest. I’ve spent $30-$40 dollars tailoring the waist in a couple of pants/jeans. Once they are professionally adjusted, if you even so much of think of gaining 5 lbs (not that anyone ever wishes that :)) you are basically out a pair of pants until you are fortunate enough to lose the weight again. I’ve (sadly) tried “As Seen on TV” solutions to no avail.
If you wear shirts that cover your waistline, this is a great solution (and I think most people over the age of 25 do that sort of thing). If it seems a little grannyish to you – it probably is. But it’s still a great (cheap!) idea :). And if you don’t like it for some reason, you can take out the elastic and the Fray Check will preserve the little cuts you made, or you can simply re-sew them as they are on the inside and can’t be seen.
Btw, I have pretty basic sewing skills, so if I can do this, really…almost anyone can.
