Look, I'm going to level with you guys. At 4'10" literally all jeans are high-waisted jeans on me so this isn't exactly my area of expertise.

Having said that, I do know a thing or two about being too curvy to get things to fit properly.


Since high-waisted jeans have made a come back, people have started to remember why they went away to begin with. They're almost impossible to get to fit right!

But worry not, fellow curvies. I've got you covered with this hack from Depop.

This won't work for all of you


and it's only a temporary fix. To get that smooth snug-as-skin look, you're going to need to go to a tailor (or... like... wear leggings; which are totally pants, I will die on this hill!) but in a pinch, this hack is a game changer that takes you from looking like this:

Cute on a dog. Not cute on you.

To this:

Denim glory achieved!

(Shout out to Janet Jackson for serving up high-waisted hottie realness.)

First let's lay down some "ground rules."

You want to start out with a pair of jeans that is as close to properly fitting as possible. Ideally you want a correct fit around the hips and thighs with only a bit of gapping at the waist.

This isn't going to help you if your jeans are 3 sizes too big.

The jeans also need belt loops. No belt loops?

No hack. Sorry.

We know strangely smooth loopless jeans exist, but this isn't going to work with them.

Since most of us will be working with high-waisted jeans that almost fit right and are a typical belt-looped style, we're going to assume you're good to go.

Step one: Put on your jeans as normal.

Step two: Zip 'em up.

Step three: Loop the button through your belt loop before securing it in the button hole.

For a visual, we turn to Depop.

Since the video was posted, it's racked up over 140k views and countless shares. Love it or hate it, people's minds are blown.

Sure, the hack has it's problems (like the fact that you may have just created an extra front crease that you'll need to try and tuck behind the zipper) but like we said, in a pinch it can be a total game changer.

If you decide you want to rock that high waist jean look, a lot of varieties are available. Including skinny jeans, sexy jeans and heavily distressed jeans.

As expected, the cold open of this past weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live lampooned the first two days of the public impeachment hearings.

Single people can be thrown the most invasive questions. So of course, they have to find witty answers. This is partially to save face, but also to make the other person embarrassed for even asking.

Being an exotic dancer is generally not necessarily people's vision for themselves as children, but the financial draw of the job is pretty great.

A person can basically pay tuition with the amount of money they walk away with from working in a club. It's a very lucrative thing. But it also draws a crowd that is rather unusual, as it is an unusual job.

Everyone is afraid of something, but for most of us it's something that "makes sense" like spiders, snakes, etc. That's not the case for everyone, though.

Being accused of things you didn't do is annoying and can be infuriating even in the best of situations. Sometimes, though, the thing you're accused of is so ridiculous that you can't even be mad.

For example, I had a group of friends I would chat with online. One day, the elderly father of one of those friends got a phone call from Florida saying the friend was in trouble and needed bail money.

Some of us are lucky: We have good neighbors. We each go about our business; no one makes any noise or brings any drama into each other's lives... It's quite simple, really.

But others aren't so lucky, and chances are pretty high that you've been one of those unlucky people. (As have I, sad to say.)
