My best friend and my worst enemy: my jeans. I like to get the lowrise with a little stretch in them. For me they are more comfortable, they look better, and they give the illusion that I actually have a butt. My jeans and I get along great for the first 3? 4 hours? After that the honeymoon is over and we start tug-o-war...and I always lose.
I didn't realize how ridiculous I looked yanking my pants up until I caught someone doing a tug through the window heading into Target. I laughed until I realized it was my reflection.
So why not just wear a belt?
1) I like to wear long, form fitting shirts and hate the bulge of a belt under that.
2) I'm always between the hole sizes in belts. It's either too tight or too loose.
So where do I turn? The Invisibelt.
1) It holds my pants up with zero belt bulk under my long shirts. The only bulk that's left is up to me to take to the gym. It's great for any kind of pants, including dress pants.
2) It adjusts like a bra, so I can get the perfect fit. Plus, the belt itself has just a tiny bit of stretch. I've never had to undo my Invisibelt because I ate one-too-many brownies.
Con: I like that it gets the perfect adjustment, but don't much like how the buckle or adjuster looks. But, considering that the point is for the belt to not be seen, it really isn't much of a con.
Bonus Pro: Huge score for the traveling mom! Never have to hold your toddler and your pants up while your belt goes through airport security. The belt is completely metal-free. Forget about moms, everybody loves that!!
You can get the Invisibelt for $19.95 in clear and now (my favorite) in black. The same belt works for sizes 0-14 (so it works for post-pregnancy, too!). Or get the plus size belt that fits up to 4x.
