How to Stretch your Jeans / Waistband Extender - Page 2

post #26 of 66
Ok, so. In my tri color studded As, I can button them (kinda) but really the problem seems to be in the thighs/ass. What should I do?

I would wet those areas with some water and wear them around the house, maybe do some lunges

I actually had a pair of Paiges that fit perfect in the waist but were too tight in the thigh and butt area, so I wet them and then wore them for a few hours. The next day I tried them on and they fit so much better. But I'm not sure after washing them if they will shrink back to their original size. I hope not!

they will shrink back after you wash them

gah...unfortunately, after drinking my way through this past school year, i need one of these.

for you ladies with junk in the trunk (i once was one, pre-beer-belly), joe's jeans makes a cut called honey i believe? it's a curvy fit that's smaller in the waist. i find that joe's jeans tend to fit really well anyways if you're curvier. unfortunately, i have yet to own a pair, as i'm ridiculously cheap and only shop at the discount places.

New to this...

I just purchased a waist extender off of ebay and I am curious, do you use this when the jeans are wet? Or dry? Nothing is more uncomfortable than slipping on a pair of crusty air-dried jeans haha.

I need to stretch my jeans about an inch or so, do you think this could work for me? I've tried wearing my jeans around the house to stretch them out a bit but it hasn't worked very well. They're black bootcut jeans, if that'll help with your judgements. TIA!!

The waist band extender works WONDERS! They work the best with jeans that have stretch to them. I had a pair of seven's that fit everywhere but the waist. They were so small in the waist that they were completely unbuttoned and unzipped. After using the waist band extender, I was able to zip them up, and button them without the lovely muffin top. I definitely recommend purchasing one of these!

OMG! I find out so much stuff on this forum. I see some on ebay; but they don't look like the one posted above. I want to play it safe. Where can I find the one from above?

I got mine a long time ago on ebay from bakertowne but it looks like they are no longer selling them
post #36 of 66
Yeah bakertowne is where I purchased mine is October. I would add them to your favorites and keep checking back. I'm sure they will get more at some point!

Thanks guys, I sent them an email asking when they would have more. If they never do, I found one that looks more similar on heartlandamerica.com.
post #38 of 66
can these be used on cords?
i have a pair of 100% cotton SFAM cords where the waist is just a little too small.
post #39 of 66
I'm happy to say that bakertowne got more in... YAY! Just in time. Are they fast for shipping? I'm going out of town on THursday and I gotta couple of jeans that need some help...LOL!

So I should wet the top of the jeans and then use the extender? How many notches to put in it? Also, since I need to pack these and don't want them to dry all crusty...should I do this Thursday?

I havent used my waistband extender in a while lol
post #43 of 66
Yay! I finally got one of these. They are pretty tricky at first so this was a great help to me. Thanks Kelley!

I cant beleive it actually works! Do you guys let the denim dry with the extended in them or take out the extended right after your stretch them?

I always let the denim dry then take out the extender.

I recently bought a pair of 7FAM boy shorts that are just a smidgen too tight in the waist, but they're 100% cotton. Is this still going to give me an extra inch with the extender? TIA, Kelly!

^ I think it should work even on 100% cotton, yep

Its too bad some clothes shrink after washing.. Up to now, I still don't know why they shrink?? What fragments do they have that cause them to shrink after washing? Well, those are the questions that runs in my mind
post #49 of 66
