Pants Too Tight Post-Holiday? Would A Waistband Stretcher Help?

Indulge in too many holiday treats? Is that eggnog camping out on your backside like it’s preparing to hike the K2? Don’t worry, we feel your pain. On a flight back from the holidays, we were presented with a suggested solution. From the pages of SkyMall, we bring you the Waistband Stretcher ($30).

The purpose of this device is to do just what it says it’s supposed to do: stretch the waistband of your clothes. You’re supposed to wet the waistband of your favorite cotton pants, throw this contraption in, and watch it add 1-5” to the garment by stretching it out. Initially, this sounds like a great idea but it doesn’t say if the waistband will regain its original dimensions. Ladies, do not torture and kill a perfectly good pair of jeans just because you couldn’t stay away from the cheesecake and martinis.

As we’ve said before, we (and most of Hollywood) are fans of Spanx Power Panties ($30). Spanx isn’t just for your favorite evening look, they’re a secret weapon for anytime you need to suck it in, tuck it back, and walk out of the house. Our advice is to purchase them in every color and use them liberally until you feel like your old self again.

We’re not against improvising during a wardrobe crisis but we are against ruining perfectly good clothes.

Peruse our Shapewear Guide for more ways to suck in those extra inches.
