WE’VE ALL been there – just when you think you’ve found the perfect pair of trousers it turns out they’re too loose around you waist.
But you can’t size down because then they wouldn’t fit around your thighs.

Of course, you can wear a belt but the truth is sometimes a belt ruins the outfit.
Luckily, a fashion fan has shared her clever trick to make the waist of her trousers smaller and you’d never be able to tell how she does it.
Posting the hack on TikTok Jaz, who posts under @jazrabarnes, explained that there’s no need to wear an ugly belt or pull your trousers tighter with a bobble.
“I have a better hack,” she quipped.
She showed off a pair off trousers that were way too big around her waist, “but my thighs are too tick to buy a smaller size,” she said.
“All you do is cut a hole on the inside lining of your pants” Jazz explained.
Make sure you only cut through the first layer of material, so that you wont be able to see the hole on the outside.
Once you have a hole on both sides you just need a shoelace or a piece of strong and a bobby pin or safety pin.
Attach the bobby pin or safety pin to the end of the string and insert it in the hole and feed it through to the other side.
“Now you have drawstring pants,” Jazz said, showing off the perfectly fitting shorts.
Viewers loved the trick, one said: “Use elastic instead of string, it will be a lot more comfortable and wont dig when you sit down!”
A second said: “They do this for toddler’s pants, I don’t know why I never thought to do it to my own, such a great hack!”
