How to Repair a Stretched Elastic Band
When it comes to elastic, time is not your friend. Elastic can deteriorate over time and lose its stretchiness with wear —every time your body moves, and every time your garment is put on and taken off.
When elastic wears out and loses its stretch, the best solution is to remove it and replace it with a new one.
- Try to find elastic that is a similar weight and width as the original.
- When measuring the new elastic length, make sure that it’s a comfortable fit for your body and for the use of the garment.
