Fit Fixers For All Those Clothes That Are Almost Just Right

Whether you’ve gained weight, or shrunk an inch, have wandering bra straps or just can’t seem to get your sandal straps to stay in place, SheFinds found the solution. Watch the segment on Better.tv to see all sorts of products that can help your clothes fit just right, right now.

It may seem like a lot of nipping and tucking, but trust us, these fit-fixing solutions are an extra 90 seconds very well spent.

Making Stuff Bigger
Jeans not quite too tight, but you could use an extra inch or so in the waist? A waistband stretcher ($30) can let you dig those skinny pants out of the back of your closet. Just we the waistband of a cotton skirt or pair of pants, and use the stretcher to add an inch…or three…in the waist.

If your shoes are too snug, the same principle applies: use this adjustable shoe stretcher ($50), specially made for women’s shoes, to stretch those stilettos until they don’t pinch your toes.

Making Stuff Smaller
For the opposite shoe problem – footwear that’s a bit too big for your foot – choose from any number of shoe pads to cushion your feet and get rid of extra room. AirPlus makes pads for every part of your foot, like these Heel Savers ($8).

To remedy too-long pant hems when you’re not wearing those heels, pick up a pair of cityclips ($30-$35), which let you cuff trousers so you won’t step on them during the commute.

Keeping Things In Place
Perhaps the most annoying fashion woes stem from clothes that look great when you put them on, but just won’t stay where they should. Case in point: tucked-in jeans that bunch up around the tops of your boots. Solve the problem with equestrian-style stirrups ($8) that grip the hems of your jeans. Smartest thing we’ve seen all week.

When you ditch the boots for sandals, use Foot Petals Strappy Strips ($7) to prevent the straps from sliding all over your foot. And speaking of straps, make sure they’re not showing if they shouldn’t be: slide this simple device from Embrace ($8.50) between your bra straps, and they’ll stay in the center of your torso, racerback-style, until you decide otherwise.

When you’re low-rise jeans, try these two solutions to fake a perfect fit: sticky BUTTerflies ($10) keep undies in place so they won’t start peeking out above your waist band, and a zipholder ($5.50 for 3) will keep your fly from gaping at the top.
