What every best has:
Reviews also note that it can look odd to have two buttons on one item of clothing. In most cases, you'll want to cover the buttons with a belt or a shirt. Overall, however, the reviews are quite positive.
We found the most thorough tests of the Perfect Fit Button kit at TV station KPLC (Lake Charles, La.), where Jeff Jumper tests it on a variety of fabrics, attempting to make a waist size smaller as well as larger. At another station, WGRZ (Buffalo, N.Y.), the tester tries it on a pair of jeans, evaluating the whole process, including the removal of the button. Tests at a third station, WVEC (Norfolk, Va.), only demonstrate how to attach the button and evaluate comfort.
We found mostly positive owner-written reviews at Amazon.com and Walgreens.com, as well as a very detailed and enthusiastic review at Hubpages.com.
In this video review, reporter Jeff Jumper tries Perfect Buttons on pants made of different fabrics, finding that it's easy to put on and remove, though it does leave a pinhole. He finds that it works just as well at extending the waist as it does making it smaller. The cap doesn't press against his abdomen, so the pants stay comfortable, he says.
In this brief video review, a tester named Barb gives the Perfect Fit Button a thumbs-up after trying it with a pair of jeans. She says it's as easy to remove the button as it is to put it on, and reports that it's comfortable. The review notes that this would be helpful for growing children as well as for adults gaining or losing weight. (Note: The manufacturer says the product is not designed for clothing for kids under 10 years of age.)

He says his weight fluctuates a lot, and that the Perfect Fit Buttons enable him to wear all the different sized pants in his wardrobe.

The sole complaint on this site is in regards to ordering the Perfect Fit Button by phone. The user says the automated system kept offering one upgrade after another until he finally gave up.
