My Safety Pin Secret

I’m a curvy girl and I’ve grown to appreciate my angles over the years.  So when it comes to finding clothes that fit me I know which cuts and fabrics work for my shape. But every now and then I come across the perfect top, dress, skirt or even a blazer or dowdy cardigan that just won’t fit the way I want!   The solution to this dilemma is what I call my safety pin secret. I have them in ALL sizes imaginable and I use them to add ruching to just about anything that needs a little adjusting.  Ideally one large saftey pin does the trick, but for the most part two large safety pins on each side work best. Each pin should be pushed through 2-3 times (makes a huge difference!).

On dresses that don’t flow with my curves I gather the hem only at the sides and pin.  And since I LOVE the super flattering 3/4 sleeve, the same goes with just about any top and blazer (must be knit or thin).  It’s not always easy to get it right but when you do it’s a life saver!!

U by Kotex* products come in a variety of absorbencies and sizes, so you’re covered whether your flow is heavy or you just need backup protection.
