To extend the waist a little bit on a pair of pants, take a rubber band and attach it to a button hole. Bring the rubber band through the hole and bring it back through its own "loop" to secure it. The button you your pants will now go through the loop on the rubber band.

A slightly stretchy shoelace at least 12 inches larger than your waist is a great way to cinch up a slightly sagging waistline. It's also super comfortable for traveling or sitting for long periods of time - no buckle to dig into your tummy and no bulge under fitted shirts. Just tuck the lace tie into your waistband.
