Tailoring Simplified: The Instant Button®

A personal 'go to' item in my wardrobe arsenal is the Instant Button®. I originally blogged about it here back in August of 2010, and have been using one ever since. Most of my jeans and pants end up being too large at the waist because I have to size up one to fit my hip/thigh area. I used to either wear a belt or have them tailored to fit until I discovered the Instant Button® (available for purchase here), which acts like a 'temporary tailor', allowing me to adjust the waistband of my jeans and pants to fit perfectly...no needle and thread required. They were invented by Dana Hanh Contey, who writes on her website:

"I am the mom inventor of the patent pending Instant Button®. Instant Button® is the original removable and reusable button that allows you to add or reduce your pants size instantly for that tailored fit, without requiring a belt or an alteration.

I designed the Instant Button® to solve the common problems that impact the waistline and therefore, the fit of the waistband. Whether you lose weight; you gained weight; you have that embarrassing gap in the back, or a missing button, the Instant Button® is your solution. No sewing needed.

No matter the situation, with Instant Button® is your solution. You will never need to use a safety pin for a perfect fit, again!

With thanks and kind regards,

Please do share your thoughts...I always love to hear from you!

Enjoy your day!


  1. I'd never heard of this! I have no waist or hips or butt - I am sadly all belly. WOuld like an instant button to close that off!!!

    1. Oh Wendy, you are just too funny sometimes! I personally do not think you are all belly, but I know we all see ourselves differently. I am envious of your super skinny legs! I would love to have them instead of my 'athletic' thighs. :)

  2. I'm fascinated - how does it work?

    1. Hi wellfedfred! You place the instant button next to the already existing button, and use it when fastening your jeans and pants, instead of the original one. This way that extra inch (more or less) is taken up and the pants fit correctly without having to tailor or wear a belt. They really do work well. I wear mine on an almost daily basis. :)
