Perfect Fit Button Review
Perfect Fit Button As Seen On TV
The Perfect Fit Button as seen on TV commercial is starting to get more popular. I actually ordered mine before I ever saw it on television because I heard about it on a message board. It was one product I wanted to try for several reasons and I hoped this one would pan out for the AS Seen On TV world.
I'm getting a bit tired of all the complaints I hear over shipping or other conspiracies about these carnival barkers so I'm hoping The Perfect Fit Button is the Perfect Punch I need to solve this problem. I seem to have great luck with my purchases. I read the fine print and always opt out of any upgrades. I get my stuff and add it to my collection. So Im hoping for the best.
I'm at a crossroads with my As Seen On TV Hobby because it's important to open and try the products in order to write a review on them or rip them for bad quality, but I wish I could keep them in the original packaging in mint condition because a lot of them become collectors items. Many become part of pop culture like the Snuggie and having an original in the vault (my closet) is kind of cool. I want my own little As Seen On TV hall of fame more so than I want to use the junk.

But back to the task at hand. I mentioned that I wanted to try the Perfect Fit Button for several reasons and here they are. First, I love to wear my jeans when they are really old and faded. For that matter I love my Khakis the same way.but I tend to lose buttons.
I know many pants and shorts come with that extra button sewn inside and plain ole buttons are easy enough to find at the store but sewing them on by hand is pretty tough. It's also kind of fun because I feel a real sense of accomplishment when I do it, but there's always a few mistakes.
I never seem to get it in the right spot and somehow I mess up the pattern and there's always a thread or two wrapped around the outside of the button which can make it hard to button up the pants. Not to mention, it looks sloppy.
So the perfect button is a great alternative to sewing on buttons and here's why. The perfect button is nothing more than a snap in place button. You jam it through the fabric and fasten it from behind with the little snap gizmo. If you think it's in the wrong place, you just move it. These things snap pretty tight so it won't fall off and many of the buttons I've sewn on myself seem to break away after a few washes and wears anyway. So the perfect button has a strong appeal to me.
The second reason I wanted to try the perfect button was because the commercial claims you can take in or let out your waist on your own. You don't have to go for alterations which, to me, are a bit to permanent of you tend to yo yo with your weight. You can simply move your perfect fit button anywhere you want to on your waistband and you can go slimmer or looser. If it really works, then what a handy little thing.
The commercial brings up a few other nifty points like altering hand me downs for kids and if you are like us, you probably by your kid's clothing a little big so it will last longer. As long as temporarily taking in the pants doesn't look funny, then the kids probably won't mind. It's the length which is what is more difficult to deal with but the perfect fit gives you a great option to deal with waist size issues.
Now let's get to the good part. Let's watch the perfect fit button infomercial and get our laughs in. This one is especially campy and is a lot of fun to watch. I'm sure they will be making fun of this one all over the net, so sit back and enjoy it.
The Perfect Fit Button Review
Now that we've seen the As Seen On TV commercial and I hope had some giggles it's time for the dreaded Perfect Fit Button Review!!! There are things which I like about it and there are some things I don't so let's start with what I don't like.
First, I already have the Shoes Underwhich I do use. Ours now house the Beanie Baby collection which nobody seems to care about now but sure did when they made me stand in line for 3 hours hoping to get a shot at the Princess Diana Bear! And it wasn't just once. I recall Lucky lines, Peace Bear Lines and the ultimate score the Teddy 97 Christmas Bear. Hey maybe I do care, but don't tell anyone. But anyway, the Shoes Under may be a bonus for some, but certainly could have done without it.
Next, I hate the Denim Button because it says "Perfect Fit Button". I know all cool jeans buttons have something on them and at first glance it looks ok, but I just don't like it. Nobody is gonna get close enough to read it but if for some reason someone does, you are busted. I'm not sure it's a crime but it seems cheesy. The other buttons are plain but they look kind of kooky and unless I'm wearing a suit, I will always have a belt over it.
Keep in mind this is for replacement buttons only. If it's for altering the waist and the other button is still there, I'm always wearing a belt because two buttons looks ridiculous.
Here's what I do like: The Perfect Fit Button Works!
I'm the perfect candidate for this product because I tend to fluctuate between 145 lbs and 170lbs. There are lots of reasons for that but what the main issue is that I have clothes that are anywhere from 31 inch waists to 34 inch waists. Now, I'm a guy so I generally don't care but I know my big pants look foolish and I actually where my favorite walk shorts that are 34s when I'm in my 31 or 32 stage. They actually can fall right down to my ankles even if I'm wearing a belt.
My solution has been just to roll down the waist band a couple of times but I look like Huck Finn without the rope. The perfect button solves this problem. I just take in the shorts and they look fine. The length was always fine so you can't tell a thing. I don't tuck my shirts into my walking shorts anyway so no belts, no rolling no discomfort. It's great.
Now, most of my work pants are khakis and they are all 34s. I bought two pairs of 32s but I want to wear my bigger ones so it doesn't look like I'm wearing the same pants everyday. I didn't want them altered because then I would have no fat clothes, so again I can take these in with the perfect button and they are fine. I wear a belt because there are two buttons and even though they are a little baggy in the seat, I feel fine and am not self conscious about it. I think I'm the only one who could notice. So if I choose, I can add 8 pairs of pants to my wardrobe right now while I'm thin.
I suppose the same holds true for when I start gaining again. I can let out my 32s a little and make the transition to my 34s. These things snap tight and hold on so you're not gonna lose them.
I really only use the Jeans buttons. The other colors will work for me with belts but after all, I'm a guy who's been letting his pants fall down for years so I'm not gonna put a whole lot of effort into color coordinating my buttons.
Now I guess by now you can tell that I'm not someone who goes out and buys a lot of clothes even if I really need them. I think a lot of guys are like me. We like our stuff and that's how we are. I remember one time that my wife decided to clean out my underwear drawer against my wishes. She said "Why do you have a headband in your underwear drawer?" That wasn't a headband it was my old underwear with only the waistband still in tact. I never even thought of throwing it away. Guys just don't think like that.
My point is this. If you do go out and buy new clothes every time your waist size changes, then Perfect Fit Buttons will save you a ton of money. Things are tight for everyone right now and while buying new clothes is fun for some, I doubt having to replace a pair of jeans or plain black pants just because you've put on a few pounds probably isn't your idea of shopping. It's the new styles that are fun not replacing your old ones.
Perfect Fit Buttons are here to stay and I'm quite sure every household could use them. Even if it's just for emergency button replacement on the way to an event, these things will come in handy. In fact, they go perfect with latest do it yourself sewing accessory called Style Snaps. Pretty soon we won't even need sewing machines.
