How to use a waistband stretcher

post #1 of 30

Someone posted an ebay auction link to this waist band stretcher. Well i bought it, but i dont know how to use it! Theres directions but the pictures arent that big and theres just so many parts i dont know where to put them. I feel like i need a man to help my build it or something hahaahah.

So whoever posted the link, could you maybe give me a picture tutorial? Coz i'd love you forever and ever.

And the instructions said something about gauging it to the size you want. Lets say i want the jeans to go 2 sizes up (i unfortunantly bought boy cuts that apparently run tooo smalll and i didnt know) and to go 1 size up. How do yo u gauge with just these black sticks it came with @_@ oh my.

Ok Im going to do my best to try to explain how this thing works. It took me a while too but I finally got it.

So theres a total of like 5 pieces you can use..
Depending on what size jeans you have you will use however many you need. I’m a 32 and I only use 2 or 3 pieces on mine to stretch them..
Well you just stick pieces one in the other like in the picture till you have a solid bar that is about the size of your jeans.

The gray knob on the right side is what loosen and tightens the tension on the grip of the jeans. You want to loosen it up to fit the front in there (the zipper and the button area) and then tighten it as much as you possibly can so It will stay put.

Then, the other gray part is what you twist to extend the length of your rod. You want to extend it as far as you think you need it.
I kinda just go by how much I think it needs stretched Im really not sure how you go about measuring how much you are stretching.

Theres one last piece that’s not pictured, it’s a little hook looking thing, you can just use that to hang up your jeans on your shower rod or somewhere so they can have time to dry and set.

Voila!
Hope this helps!

I posted this recently at our old site, but I had gotten the link from another post months before. I bought a 2nd one for my friend and did best offer: my total came to $14 shipped. I think I'm going to get another for my boyfriend and for myself so that I can stretch 2 at once. Think I'm gonna try for cheaper.

Those directions that came with the box were not very clear at all!!! It took me a while to decipher and successfully attach, but it was well worth it! It's my fashion life saver!

Has anybody tried any other versions of waistband stretchers on ebay? And this seller bakertowne seems to have a lot of negative fbs....

That is a pretty good invention. It makes me wonder why I didn't think of it. I could be a millionaire right now! JK

From that post a long time ago, someone said that the item was previously back ordered. But I believe they are full stock now. I've gotten both of mine so fast--like just a few days after paying.

oh and I wrote up a bunch of instructions for these one other time in a PM for someone but I couldnt remember who it was to ask them if they still had it

I did best offer on this too and I cant remember how much but it seems like she accepts most offers
