I'm not an expert and I may be tooootally wrong here, but I guess it would depend on the length of the Dog - if you add 2" to the collar but don't compensate for that in the body, then the overall thing would be 2" longer.

As for the elastic thread - No idea, sorry. I'm interested in the real answer though, so maybe someone else can help??
