Tip: Waistband Adjustment

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.
