So I have learned a few tried and true quick fixes, dupes and tips over the years, but this one in particular is the BEST ever!!!
Ever been in the mood to shop, but not in the mood to actually try on? It's okay, we all do it. That's inevitably the moment you see a beautiful pair of jeans or slacks that are calling your name, but the thought of dragging yourself through another dressing room experience makes you cringe. I have you covered. Check out this quick video on how to see if a pair of pants will fit your waist by using your neck.
You read that right. Your neck.
Now, here are a couple of things to make note of before you head out to the stores and start wrapping pants around your neck:
1. Know YOUR Body. If you can tell by looking at a slimmer fitting pant that the legs aren't going to fit your shape, no worries, that's not the pant for you. It may fit your waist great, but if the leg doesn't look right on the hanger, chances are it's not going to highlight you in the best way possible. Find a boot cut or straight leg.
2. Pay attention to RISE. Low, mid or high rises are still in the game. If you want a regular fit (you know, where your underwear doesn't peek out whenever you sit down or bend over), look for mid to high rises. Then put the neck wrap to its test with the waist of the pant.
3. Nothing is FOOLPROOF. While I have tested this on MANY, MANY clients, it is important that you realize sometimes a pant may pass the neck wrap test, but when you get it home, its just not for you. That's okay. It happens. But if you are only worried about the WAISTLINE of a pair of jeans or slacks, this is the tried and true method for you.
Til next time!
