These strips are great but they don't hold up for the day if the material isn't an easy cotton or something similar. I tried them with a pair of thin cotton and wool flannel pants, very thin, but it was like there was too much lint or something for the tape to hold the day. No problems on other pants.

Love these

These work perfect for pants when you want to wear flats, but comes off quickly and easily if you want to switch to heels.

Didn't work for how I used it

I thought that this product could help me raise the hems on skirts/dresses that were too long. However, it was tough to do that because it required so many strips to go all around the hem. Also, it didn't look totally even and the gaps between the strips were visible and parts of the hem would fall down. I think this product would be better for use if you had something that was already hemmed but fell out in one place, as a temporary spot repair. However, for that use you could just use regular fashion tape.

No more safety pins for me!

I thought I would have to constantly be carrying around safety pins to keep my pants from dragging on the floor until a friend recommended these to me. I wasn't sure they would work for me and truthfully I messed up the first time I tried to put them on my pant leg. It was my fault and not the product's defect. Now I keep them in my purse and they have saved me from looking homeless many a time. I ripped a seam in my favorite slacks before work and thank goodness I had these as a backup! They held up in the wash, too!

I'm short, so its hard to find pants that I can wear with both flats and heels. The strips are easy to use and last a while. I plan on purchasing more, great for trips

Definitely works for a quick fix

I recently had a pair of casual sweat pants that I wanted to wear out for the day running errands, but they were too long. I used the tape and it worked like a charm!

does the trick!

I work in the tradeshow industry so travel a lot. This product allows me to wear pants which are long enough for heels, but then I can use the tape to shorten and wear with flats. Perfect when you don't have a lot of space for packing multiple outfits.

These things are great

I tend to only fit into pants that are the perfect length for heels but way too long for flats and it drives me crazy. This stuff is the perfect solution. I just got back from a trip, and it's held up the cuffs on my jeans for nearly a week without failing. Really excellent product.
