View Full Version : Stretching too much?

31st October 2005, 04:43
I sized down to 31/34 in my Finns and they fit absolutely PERFECT for the first two weeks, but now they have become loose in the butt so I have to constantly pull them up. Any suggestions on how to have them fit perfectly again? Thanks in advance

The only thing I can think of is to wash them but then you slow down the fading process. Someone mentioned in another topic that you can throw them in the dryer (even though they're dry) and they will shrink a little.....don't take my word for it....maybe you should search the forum to find the post first.

Wear a belt? Or you could dart the waistband in a couple places to try and make it a little smaller that way.

Hmm... I've been wearing mine in 30/34 for almost three weeks now and they haven't stretched much at all.

yeh putting them in the dryer does shrink the jean a little, but it also straightens out the creases in the jean. I used to put my first ssk in the dryer every couple of weeks so they would retain their shape

Well dry jeans always stretch while wearing them for a long time, and you can't do anything against it but washing it. So you have to wear a belt now and be patient until you think, that you can wash them. :)

i got a 29x32

and they fit perfectly, they have stretched very well in the waist.. meaning not much at all.. but a good stretch to be very very COMFORTABLE.. i wore a belt at all wears very tight on the waist during the process though

My FG dry I got nuthugger tight (barely got the top button closed) and now they're actually a little too baggy. Crazy how denim works.

Soaking would be your best bet to shrink your jeans down if they are not quite at the stage where you would like to wash them.

funny thing about slim jeans. my grim tims i sized down 2. to 28X34. and the funny thing is that they are roughly a 15" waist now. :O

how did that happen?
from soaking?

29th July 2008, 06:02
nah not even soaking or anything at all, i just wore them and they stretched to that size. it's scary to know that these jeans stretch that much. i don't really enjoy the idea of sizing down but i hate the stretched out feeling.

Ugh, get a smaller size next time! But yeah, belt is the way to go right now. Washing it will make you lose some precious indigo! You want to have that for the first few months. &I don't even know about drying, have never tried it.

Hi guys, would need ya help. I am thinking of getting a pair of Thinn Fin online but I am not too sure of the sizing. I've got a pair of Slim Jims in Sz 32 so what would be an appropriate size to buy for thinn fin?

depending on how you want to wear them: real tight - 30. Tight - 31.
