I wish it weren’t true, but it happens to ALL of us. Your weight fluctuates. And some days, or months, your jeans just don’t fit. Your jeans will be too tight, and they won’t fit anymore. It sucks (I know!!), and it happens to the best of us.

What to Do When Your Jeans Don’t Fit

So what should you do if your jeans don’t fit anymore? Try one of these 5 solutions.

5 Quick and Easy Solutions for Times When Your Jeans Don’t Fit

Hate it when your jeans are too tight? Here are 5 quick and easy solutions with what to do when your jeans don’t fit.

1. Buy New Jeans If Your Jeans Don’t Fit!

If your jeans don’t fit, buy new jeans! I know. I know. NONE of us like to buy jeans in a bigger size. It feels like defeat. But understand that weight fluctuation is normal. To save yourself stress, go out and buy yourself a new pair of jeans. It’s no fun wearing jeans that are too tight.

My trick? When I find of pair of jeans that I like, I buy three pairs total. Yes – I buy the same pair of jeans in three sizes! Not kidding. That way, I ALWAYS have a pair that fits comfortably.

I have a smaller waist and muscular thighs and personally LOVE the Anne Taylor high rise, curvy skinny jeans. I own them in a size 0, 2, and 4! My favorite is the Jet Black Wash color. (Make sure to select “curvy” as the fit type versus “regular” when buying online.)

2. Lose Weight If Your Jeans Are Too Tight

You knew this would be a tip, right? If your jeans are too tight, you may have gained weight. I personally gain fat on my thighs and butt, so if I eat more calories per day than usual and stop workout out as often, the scale goes up and the jeans don’t fit.

To make your jeans fit again, get back on the fitness train and lose weight.

3. Change Your Wardrobe – Say Goodbye Jeans and Hello Tights!

Most of my wardrobe in the summertime consists of tennis skirts and sundresses. In the fall and winter, I stick to tights. Even for work, I stick to dresses with tights underneath – because work pants, like jeans, can quickly become too tight.

So go ahead and start wearing tights! Pair tights with a cozy sweater or loose shirt for a casual look, or a bigger, loose collared shirt for a dressier look.

I personally own the Calvin Klein Mandarin Collar Zip Roll-Up Sleeve Top and these black tights from 90 Degree by Reflex on Amazon.

4. Prevent Bloating If Jeans Are Too Tight Around the Waist

Bloating can SIGNIFICANTLY affect how your jeans fit. To make your jeans fit better, avoid foods that cause bloating. Avoid beans, sugar free gum, foods with fake sugar, wheat, and foods with high salt.

To prevent bloating, eat healthy foods like strawberries, bananas, cucumbers, oranges, apples, and yogurt (but not yogurt with fake sugar!).
