After months of searching for the perfect white jean, I finally discovered the Arlo High Risepants from Aritzia, and they’ve stuck to my body ever since. While the sleek jeans were exactly the length and style I was looking for, they didn’t fit as well as I would have hoped.

I don’t blame the jeans. As someone with a small waist and a thicker bottom, I usually struggle with denim – there’s always extra fabric around my hips, even though the pant legs look great on me. (Anyone else?) But after scouring the internet, I found a super cheap hack designed to help any pair of baggy jeans fit perfectly: Taoqiao Snap Buttons.

Thanks to those awesome $6 adjustable buttons, my Aritzia jeans now fit securely around the waist. The set comes with eight knobs of varying sizes, including silver and bronze options with lovely embellishments. They’re super easy to use – after selecting the one I want, I unscrew the back of the pin and push it into the waistband of my jeans, about an inch from the original button (usually where it feels the safer around my waist). Then I replace the back, make sure it’s secure, and pull the buttonhole around the Taoqiao snap button. Lo and behold, it’s like I’m wearing a whole new pair of jeans.

The buttons never move; I was pleasantly surprised by their durability. Whether I’m walking around all day or sitting down to dinner, the seamless buttons stay put. If I ever need more space after, say, a big meal (it happens!), I can simply remove the button and store it in my purse. The flexibility has saved me time and money because I don’t have to worry about buying multiple pairs of jeans in different sizes.

I’m not the only one who loves them either – tons of Amazon shoppers have been thrilled that the Taoqiao buttons help their jeans fit better. Many positive reviews come from customers who have pear and hourglass figures; one person wrote that the button prevented them from wearing a belt, while another called them a “lifesaver”. They continued, “I feel so much more confident in jeans that look like they were made to fit my body.”

My favorite part is that every time I wear a Taoqiao button, it looks like it belongs on my jeans – my friends can’t believe it’s actually a removable fastener. It really is the best $6 I’ve spent in a long time. If you’re having trouble with the fit of your favorite jeans like me, Taoqiao Snap Buttons are an easy style hack to have on hand.
