Until it’s possible to 3D print our own clothes at home, fit and comfort requires a bit of troubleshooting when you’re buying off the rack. Clothes are made on assembly lines; humans are not. Whether it’s bra straps that always seem to slip off your shoulders or shoes that are a little too tight, there are
cheap, clever solutions on Amazon to make clothes and shoes more comfortable. These items are serious hacks for common wardrobe woes across the continuum that Amazon shoppers credit with life-changing capabilities — get ready to thumb through a selection of brilliant products you never knew existed but will be thrilled to know are out there.
In your quest for the perfect fit, there are waistband stretchers — and cinchers — plus bra band extenders that create extra ease in the ribcage and clips that’ll convert regular bras into a racerback. You’ll also find shoe stretching trees that work in every direction, and a shoe stretching spray that targets smaller areas. If comfort is the name of your game, that includes everything from orthopedic insoles (and cozy sheepskin versions) to bra strap cushions, pretty lace bands that eliminate thigh chafing, and silicone mask brackets that create extra breathing room. No matter what kind of petty fit issue you deal with, there’s at least one wardrobe hack here that can handle it.
