Because leather is a durable, attractive material, it has been used to make clothing and accessories for years. If your favorite pair of leather pants or gloves starts feeling a bit snug, there’s no need to get rid of them. Leather is a pliable material—you can stretch your leather garment to mold and fit your body perfectly.

Fill a sink with warm water.

Put your leather garment in the warm water.

Twist and knead the leather fabric while it is submerged.

Soak the leather fabric in the water for about 10 minutes.

Remove the leather from the sink.

Wear the leather garment while it is wet. Keep the garment on for an hour or two and the leather will stretch to mold to your body.
