This clever hack will help you find the perfect pair of jeans

Our hero.

A woman on TikTok has just made our lives a million and one times easier after she has shared that hack that is a dream come true.

Known on the video sharing app as @topnotchboutique, the TikToker posted a clip to help explain how she finds the perfect pair of jeans when out shopping when she just isn’t in the mood to try on loads of them.

And it’s so simple, and not to mention fool proof.

Basically, all you have to do is wrap the jeans around your neck by the waist and if they fit perfectly around, they’ll fit your bottom half no bother either.

People in her comments were completely blown away by the hack, with so many (like us) having no idea it even existed.

One person tried it out themselves and wrote: “It worked! Amazing!”

While another said: “Omg that’s crazy.”

And a third added: “Wait what I’m trying this next time I shop ??‍♀️.”

Others seemed to know about the trick already and backed her up in the comments, while others said to take it with a pinch of salt as the hack can depend on body shape.
One person commented: “Yesss! My Mom told me this hack as we were growing up. Totally works! ?.”

And another said: “Been doing this for years!!”

Regardless, they have us convinced and we’ll definitely be testing it out on our next shopping spree.
