How To Cinch Up
A Dress Without Any Sewing
Anyone can achieve an hourglass effect by cinching their waist. You can cinch the waist of any dress you wear using these simple and cheap hacks, and they don’t even involve a sewing machine!
A belt immediately enhances any outfit you wear while also cinching your waist. Belts come in three types: slim, medium, and wide, so depending on what kind of dress you wear, you’ll want to get the proper belt to finish off the look.
Instead of cinching your normal waistline, tie a ribbon to cinch your empire waistline, located right below the bust, to lengthen and slim your silhouette. The perfect canvas for an empire waistline is an ankle-length or maxi dress, but if you don’t want to use a ribbon, you can get creative with safety pins.
