I don’t know about you, but for me, there is nothing more annoying than when the buttons on a dress are gaping open.

In this hack, I’m going to show you what you can do about it to make your dress fit better.

Doing up the bottons

1. Do the other buttons up

Start off by doing all of the buttons up. Just leave the two middle ones undone.


2. Criss-cross

Then do up the two middle buttons by criss-crossing them. Place the lower button in the higher hole and the higher button in the lower hole.

Here is the finished look! The dress is cinched in the middle where we have crisscrossed the buttons, which draws attention to the waistline and looks very flattering.

Most of all, there is now no gap showing from where the fabric didn’t sit neatly against the skin previously. If you get into the same problem, give this hack a go for yourself!
