I picked up a body shaper at one of those "El Remate" bargain stores I frequent, after chickening out twice before. I had the idea of using it as a onesie so pretty much it would be for everyday use. I got the biggest one they had in the store (it's like a dollar store so they don't have dressing rooms anyway) only to find out it's 3-4" too small. I spent $25 on it I really don't have and a couple of the hooks popped as I was trying to get it on. I'm not really looking for a refund or exchange but I can't use it the way it is but I don't want to get rid of it.
I thought of taking it to a tailor but I don't know if many do that kind of thing; it's not all that stretchy like typical Spandex. I think all it would need is a section added in the back and it would be something I could work with, but I don't know, I'm clueless other than I know they'll hem a pair of jeans for $5 - should I provide them with measurements (I sure don't want to do it in front of them) or would an added panel of a certain width be enough? Who's been through this?
