Dear PPK, I am legit stuck in a dress. I have been trying to free myself for 15 minutes. I am laughing so hard. I don't know what to do, beyond cutting the dress off or wearing it forever. What do I do??? Please help.

I think we need pictures in order to be able to advise.



This past winter the zipper on my favorite vest started giving out. I got stuck in it more than once with it almost fully zipped, and had to wriggle my way free. It's ok if home, but embarrassing to have to do in public!

Wear it until it rots off! Or... is there a zipper that's stuck? I bet there are tips for making zippers work again.

There are no zippers. It's kind of stretchy. I just slipped it on over my head. But now I can't slip it off up over my arms or down over my hips.

I am freaking out.

Is there anyone around to help? Looks like you might need someone to help you pull it back over your head.

Cute dress though, if you have to be stuck in something!

You need a second person to pull. Those dresses are evil, they are so easy to get into and then they pounce

My mom will be home in 3 hours or so, but I really really don't want to ask her for help because she will laugh at me and never let me forget it. I am getting desperate, though. This is ridiculous.

I've had this problem before. I'm afraid you probably will have to cut the dress. Cut the straps, maybe just one, and definitely a vertical cut is needed into the side of the dress under your arm, then you'll be able to slip it off over your hips, or over your head.

Cute dress, I agree with dropscone. With the above cuts, you'll be able to salvage the dress.

I wonder if I could tie the hem of the dress to a door or something and then pull backward?

Clothes should not be this difficult.

The straps are removable, actually! I'd hate to cut it, but it seems like I might not have a choice. Ugh.

another option would be to hold your arms straight up above you head, to make your shoulders and lats as narrow as possible, while someone else pulls the dress over your head.

I DID IT! I had to squash my tits down with an ace bandage under the dress, since they were contributing to the problem. Then I tied a rope to the hem of the dress in the back and the other end to the doorknob. Reached my arms out straight in front of me and pulled back. And I am never wearing a dress again!

Thank you for the support! This was the stupidest thing, omg. You can go ahead and laugh at me behind my back.

I am glad to know that there is a DIY way to get out of stuck clothes! That and being able to open jars reassures me that I can be completely self-sufficient!

BTW, I was going to suggest lying on the ground, putting your arms above your head, and wriggling.

I'm so glad you got out of the dress and didn't have to ruin it. I really hate it when good clothing goes bad. I've to cut people out of dresses before working in the bridal industry. Not fun!

And it was a shiny gold rope, too.

I'm glad you're free, but this thread did make me giggle away.

I've had a similar thing happen a couple of times with tight shirts/dresses, but where I've crossed my arms and gone to pull the garment off, but then got stuck with my arms in the up position and the clothing item over my face, unable to continue pulling it off or to pull it back down. Genuinely been on the verge of a panic attack before resolving said situations.

This is my usual method when this happens and I'm alone.

It is a cute dress, though, too bad it's evil.

Glad you got free, but now I'm stuck in a dress.

Must be a universal balance thing.
