    I was so excited when I ordered this product

    Poor design or poor instructions not sure which since I still cannot get it together

  2. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Poor product.

    Poor product. Flimsy. Waste of money.

  3. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Just What I Needed

    This product did increase the waist size of my jeans.

  4. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    It actually does work

    Most reviews on here talk about how hard it is to put together, but if you just read the instructions a few times it's actually pretty easy to install. After I put it together I tested it on a pair of pants, after a day I tried the pants on and sure enough they buttoned no problem. It's a great product, especially for the price. It's cheaper than having to buy new pair of jeans one size up.

    Worst Product EVER!!!

    I cannot begin to tell you how awful the instructions are on this. 3 adults in the household ATTEMPTED to put this piece of garbage together and all 3 of us could not do it. It just made no sense and it could not properly be assembled. My father who is a Technician and assembly alot of products could not conquer this. It's just AWFUL. I was so disappointed I thought this would be great, I bought 2 of them and had to send them back, which I lost money, because I paid for shipping to get to me and then shipping to send them back to Harriet Carter. Very Upset about the whole experience. BEWARE!!! I wish that I did not have to put a 1 star rating, it does not deserve a 1 star. It is NO STARS rating.

    I would not buy this product again.

    Nothing good about this product.

  7. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Nice

    As with anything you have to assemble, take your time and don't force the unit to comply. Think it through and it will work as said

  8. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    nope - would not recommend - thought it was expandable

    nope

  9. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    no good product! i through it in the trash.

    For my personal use

    JUNK

    HAD TWO OTHER PEOPLE THAT TRIED TO PUT IT TOGETHER AND COULD NOT.JUNK

  11. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    good idea and helpful

    instructions were written too small and were difficult to follow. But, when we finally got it together, it helped to increase waist size. thank you.

  12. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Worked on a pair of jeans

    It is simply a device to stretch the waist of pants that are too tight. It was a little tricky to put together and get inside the waist band.

  13. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    terrible product...unable to put together..

    terrible product...unable to put together..instructions unclear...

    This was worth every penny!!!

    I purchased several pair of jeans in the size I have always worn, not realizing that over time they've stretched out of shape and fit me so comfortably! Unfortunately, the jeans didn't come in a larger size, so I found these "waist extenders" and thought, why not! Let me tell you! I ordered 6 and used them for the first time this past weekend. Let me just say, I was skeptical. But holy cow, I put on a clean pair of jeans that had the waist extender in them and I could zip them up no problem! I am so thankful to have found a product that does what it claims!

  15. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    I LOVE this thing!

    I can finally wear my old jeans again! Its easy to put it together. You just attach one piece to the next. I'm buying a couple more!

  16. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    not worth the money

    it falls apart when we try to use it

  17. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    could not put together had to return

    very difficult to put together had to return. Lost my shipping cost

  18. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    doesn't stay in place

    Doesn't stay at the size you choose, pastiche cap slips and will not stay where you size it. Continually trying to maintain length.

  19. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    What a sucker I was!

    If you can't put the thing together how can it be any good? I was hoping I could figure it out, but it is a very poor design. Don't waste your time or money.

  20. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Looked good - wasn't

    The instructions for this device were impossible to follow. We ended up returning it which was stupid because the postage cost almost as much as the item.

  21. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Cheaply made! Hard to use!

    Doesn't stay together. Hard to put into jeans. Not very adjustable.

  22. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Junk

    There is not anything good about this product. The only thing it is good for is the recycle bin. I'm surprised that Harriet Carter would even carry something like this.

  23. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Instructions are incoherent

    The instructions to assemble this product are incoherent. I've assembled many products before, but this one was impossible for me.

  24. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    hard to put together

    How can I review when you keep cutting me off.

  25. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Works OK for Price

    My husband says it works ok for what he needs, it stretches his jeans.

  26. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    God value for price

    My husband out this together easily, with no problems. I'd have had difficulties. It may not be of highest quality, but is a great value for the price. I figure, either lose weight, buy new pants, or use the waist extender. My decision was the waist extender. It was a good decision.

  27. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Don't buy this!!

    Don't buy this not easy to put together(we couldn't figure it out). We read reviews and ordered anyways what a waste of time. It went back for a refund.

  28. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Put it together how???

    Very poor assembly directions, still cannot figure out how it goes together!!

  29. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Waist Extender

    The instructions are not clear enough to put together, I have tried several times and still am not able to figure it out. Waste of money.

  31. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Waist Extender

    The instructions are horrible, even using a magnifying glass did not help me put this together, I was hoping for a video on website to help put together, still trying and its very frustrating.... please send better directions.

  32. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Works great for me!

    I have used these for a number of years with great results. I just bought two more so that I have enough for all of my jeans after I do my wash. They are easy to put together, although I have had experience with them, so they might be a bit more of a challenge to someone doing it for the first time. A highly recommended product which does exactly what it's supposed to do for a decent price.

  33. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    WAIST OF MONEY

    INSTRUCTIONS WERE CONFUSING,HARD TO PUT TOGETHER. WAIST OF MONEY.

  34. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Never did figure out the instructions

    I like the concept, but getting it put together is a challenge. The directions need a make-over.

  35. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Love this product!

    Got one of these years ago, and it recently broke after lots of use. I just bought 2 more - one for the house, and one for the motor home. It's great when I put on a pound or 2 (or even more!) and I can still wear my favorite jeans. I don't remember having trouble assembling my first one, and after already having one, my new ones were easy to assemble. Works great and I love being able to adjust how much stretch I need.

  36. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    piece of junk

    worse thing I ever bought. cheaply made,hard to put together,broke after one use. Would send back but would cost more than its worth.

  37. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Save Your Money

    This is a poorly-designed product. Purchase one of higher quality if you can.

  38. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    How does the pieces go together??

    we, my husband and I cannot figure out how to assemble the peices. We tried for hours (at least for me) and just couldn't follow the less than favorable directions. Not enough info

  39. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    ok

    ok product. could have been simpler to put together.

  40. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    used them for years

    I found these YEARS ago, and think they are great. I've worn them out several times. I have a belly, but no butt, so if I get pants to fit my waist, they HANG on me in the back and look ridiculous. I have honestly taken size 10 pants, and stretched the waistline to probably a size 14. I'm here to order more, because the two I am currently using are wearing out. I use them on my husband's pants when he's put on a few extra pounds too. 'honey, can you stretch my pants?' cracks me up. they ARE a cheaply-made product, but if they work, who cares? I use HOT water to get the waistband wet, then s-t-r-e-t-c-h and twist to lock the gadget in place, and let them air dry or point a fan at them to speed up the process.

  41. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Have bought this product before.

    Easy to use. Best when pants are wet.

  42. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Waist Extender works perfectly!!!!!!

    What's the big deal? This waist extender works perfectly. So it took a few minutes to put together - just follow the instructions slowly and it works. Doesn't take a rocket scientist!! Great product for the cost!!

  43. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Buy this, and use common sense.

    Look at the product pieces, and you will see exactly how it works. Wet the thick area of the stitching of the waist of the pants, then install stretcher. Pull tubes then twist to lock. Let dry, then try. Makes tight pants fit comfortably. If you wear a size 36, this will NOT make those 32's fit. This only stretches the waist, NOT THE SEAT ETC. Use your head.I purchased this product because it would cost me more to build it than to buy it.

  44. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    so so

    The waist extender works best with wet or at least damp material.

  45. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Waist Extender

    worthless

  46. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    I can't get it to stretch my pants.

    I should have ordered the waist extenders from you instead of this item. This is my mistake but feel I need to order the extender with buttons and hooks instead. Thanks

  47. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    GOOD IDEA.....BUT......

    LOOKS LIKE A GOOD IDEA, BUT DIRECTIONS MAKE NO SENSE AND ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO FOLLOW. I BOUGHT 2, BUT I THINK IT IS A WAIST OF MONEY

  48. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    This product works great!

    This product works great when you need to add a few inches to your waistline. My hasn't broken like some of the other customers have.(I'll keep my fingers crossed) I do admit that the instructions are very difficult.

  49. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    NO WHIZ AND NO BANG!

    IT SEEMS TO HAVE A PIECE MISSING. IT CAN'T BE ADJUSTED. IN YOUR PICTURE, IT SHOWS A BLACK PIECE IN THE MIDDLE. THIS, EVIDENTLY, IS PART OF THE ADJUSTMENT MECHANISM. I DON'T HAVE THIS PIECE.

  50. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    needs better instructions

    we have tried to put it together, but the instructions are not easy to understand. it should be really easy as there are only a few pieces, but if you don't know what piece goes where it will not go together properly. would like to keep the item, just need some help.

  51. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Really Works!

    I wasn't too sure when I saw this in the magazine, so I went to the website and saw that people had said it worked, but that it broke easy and had a poor design so if I was to buy that I should by two of them, so I did, and IT REALLY DOES WORK!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it when I slipped on my jeans that I haven't had on in over a year!! The only other thing, it really only works for the waist line (or where you button the pants) not any lower. But as mentioned by others that commented, buy two of them! IT REALLY WORKS!

  52. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Not user friendly

    waist streacher. was not easy to use or put together.

  53. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Having a little trouble assembling

    Once I get the extender assembled, I hope it works as advertised

  54. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    waist extender

    this is such a great idea.Item has impossible directions. sharp edges on on sides.that could cause both personal and garment injury. I am a costumer for movies and tv and thought this would be a great item for my tool to have when and actor or actress has a little to much craft service and needs some stretching out of the costume. SO i Bought 2! unfortunaltly i cannot use either and they are just sitting in the box the came in waiting to go out to the trash.

  55. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    i would buy this product again

    I use this to extend my jeans so i dont have to buy new ones.It does do the job but it has to many pieces if it can be made with less pieces it would be great.

  56. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    I hoped it would last longer

    I use it for jeans. I bought two and one broke already

  57. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Great Product!!

    This product does exactally what it says it does. It helps give that little bit of extra room you need in the waist of your jeans... great idea
