  • A TikTok hack went viral after a woman shared how to make long leggings shorter.
  • User runliftmom shows how to fold your leggings so they instantly fit better.
  • The best part is that you don’t need to do any sewing at at home to make this work.

If you’re anything like me, then online shopping has become your new norm as certain stores remain closed across the country. That means trying on clothes for sizing has not been an option for some people.

But if your brand new leggings came in and are just a tad too long, there’s a quick and easy fix for that. TikTok user runliftmom posted a step-by-step video on how to instantly shorten leggings. The best part? No equipment is needed, and it only requires two simple steps!

Here’s what to do: First, slide the leggings up your leg about 1.5 to 2 inches. Then, fold the extra material (which is probably sitting around your knee), lift it up and pull it downward for a smooth look at the ankle. That’s it! “Now they aren’t bunchy at the bottom, hooray!” she captioned the video. Check it out for yourself:

Have you ever seen something so simple?! This hack is perfect for summertime, especially when you want to wear a matching yoga set but the long leggings are just too hot. Just fold them right up and tuck the material underneath, and now you have capris.

This is also a great hack for us short gals (🙋) who always struggle to find a nice pair of workout leggings that do not look bunched up at the bottom.

Did online shopping just become so much more fun? I think yes.
