Shoppers Go Wild over Genius $11 Belts That Prevent Jeans from Gaping
The quest of finding that pair of jeans that fit just right can be a daunting task, but the no-buckle belt will not only stop the gaping but will probably also be the only belt you’d ever want.
Any person with a smaller waist than hip size will understand the annoyance of gaping jeans at the back, however, this clever accessory will soon become a firm favorite.
The unique find from the womenswear brand Suosdey clips around the belt loop on the one side of your trousers and wraps around the back with its elastic strap and clips around the belt loop on the other side and ensures no gaping. There is also no cumbersome belt buckle pressing against your stomach.
The no-buckle belt comes in two standard sizes that can be adjusted within certain ranges. Making adjustments are easy by sliding the metal bar until you get the desired fit.
If you are in a jam because your best friend borrowed your no-belt buckle, there is another rescue for the unwanted gaping.
For the quick fix, all you need is 10 inches more or less, of 1 inch elastic, a safety pin, a seam ripper and two colors of thread.
One color that matches the trousers you will be working on, and the other color to match the topstitching of said trousers. Don't’ forget a needle suitable in size to the thickness of the material you’d be working with.
Firstly unpick about 1.5 inches of stitching on the waistband on either side on the back of the jeans. Line up the unstitching over the back pockets and then prepare to pull the elastic through.
Once the elastic is all the way through make sure it will create enough tension to avoid a gap from forming before sewing the desired resistance in place with two vertical seams. Once done you are good to go.
Another common problem for women is nails that sometimes break for no reason, not only does the one broken nail look odd between the others but it also hooks and snags on everything. However, there is a genius hack that will help with that issue in no time.
