How To Make Your Jeans Fit When They’re Too Small


So you just got yourself a new pair of jeans—maybe you ordered them online, or were having a particularly “skinny” day when you tried them on in the fitting room. For whatever reason, that waistband is suddenly too tight, and you’re getting upset because a premature breakup with this great new denim is on the horizon. The jeans don’t fit! But wait! There’s a fix, and it doesn’t involve sewing or anything with sharp edges! Read on to find out how to make your too-small jeans fit.

The Denim Therapy care experts have your back: “Jeans a tiny bit too small? Wet the waistband, grab a friend, and pull. Do one to two more times while drying.”—Have you tried this tip? Did it work for you? Let us know on the Denim Therapy facebook wall!

There’s also this trinket called the ZipHolder, which lets you “Wear Too-Tight Jeans While Keeping Your Dignity”. But we say try to aim for jeans that fit in the first place (or at least jeans you can stretch into place).

Good luck!
