Loose Work Pants - Quick Fix??

After reading about swelly belly and uncomfortable pants and weight gain post surgery I figured my already slightly loose work pants would be perfect for my return to work. Would even be able to fit my abdominal binder underneath. Well what I didn't anticipate was losing 10lb right after surgery! I don't have the time or energy to go shopping. I am short and everything I buy requires altering so don't want to spend money until I know what size I will be after swelly belly is gone, etc.

So my question is is there an easy way to make my too big pants fit better? I don't sew. Yesterday I added 5 holes to my belt (and used three of them as swelly belly got bigger). That helps hold the pants up but there is so much extra fabric bunched up around the waist!

Hoping some ladies know a magic trick to help me get by the next month or so

Re: Loose Work Pants - Quick Fix??

I had the same issue...I wore a cami that was pretty snug and that helped hold my pants up...also, if your pants are long enough, you can roll them down at the waist and that takes care of some of the extra fabric. If you are like me, those are good temporary solutions, but I had to break down and get new pants....2 sizes smaller. Hope this works for you! Take care!

Re: Loose Work Pants - Quick Fix??

Great idea! I will definitely try that. I will have to buy new ones but am hoping to wait until swells belly sorts itself out. All my pants have to be hemmed so even if I buy cheap pants it is still additional $10 to hem each pair. Would rather wait a month or so before I have to shop. Rolling the waste band just might work! Thank you!
