It's called the Perfect Fit Button and it promises to add an inch to your waistline in seconds. Would it snap under the weight of our As Seen on TV test?
The Perfect Fit Button comes with eight buttons for a variety of applications. You have the type of button you would use for blue jeans. You also get a variety of buttons for brown, khaki or black pants.
The key to the Perfect Fit, according to the manufacturer, is the replacement button itself plus the locking fastener on the back that you pop on and lock into place. The only way to get it off is you squeeze it and it comes off.
Like a lot of folks, as I get older, I’m finding that my old jeans and other slacks aren't fitting quite as well and it's pretty rough to get them re-buttoned sometimes.
I’ve got a pair of old jeans that I need to add about an inch to. So here we have the old button and, as I said we need to add an inch, so we'll just put the new button on, and then fasten it, and there you go. You have a nice snug fit that's not too snug.
The one thing people will say well, gee, you've got two buttons here. They recommend you wear like a sweater or a loose shirt to fit over it and no one will ever know you've just added an inch to your waistline.
What if you have the opposite problem? Let's say you've lost some weight and say you need to take them in an inch? We’ve got some khakis that are at least a good inch too big for me.
We have an inside button, so we're just going to mimic that by moving it an inch to the left, pop it in and then put the fastener on and there, you have your button. You can either pull the shirt over it or you could cover it with your belt.
Here’s another application for the Perfect Fit Button. Let's just say the weather's warmer and you pull out a pair of shorts and you realize whoops I don't have a button at all. We have our good ole khaki button. You just pop it right where the old button went right on through there where the old thread was, clip it on and, there, you're ready to hit the boardwalk.
So, whether you need to lose an inch in your pants, add an inch to your pants or add a button because you realize that you'd lost one, the Perfect Fit Button is the perfect solution and it's going to get the perfect thumbs up.
I paid $10 for a set of eight Perfect Fit Buttons at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
