    Hi guys i just bougt my first pair of nudies which is Even Steven. My waist is 28 but i wear a W30, L32. I was just wondering would i be able to get them shrink to W29 or W28 after my first wash? The pants are loose on the waist and i want them to shrink. Or is it okay to wear ES a little bit loose on the waist? help me out guys. cheers.

    They won't shrink much, but you could always try a hot wash and dryer combo. I wear my Stevens a little low on the hips. You should be fine, so long as they are not falling off! :lol:

    Why did you buy them so huge? Dry jeans stretch A LOT. You could have bought them smaller and they still would have stretched quite a bit if a looser fit is what you were going for. You can't shrink a 30 inch waist to fit like a 28. They don't shrink that much.

    That sounds too big to me. I'm a W32 and I'm wearing W30 in my stevens, and they're now getting loose!

    They won't really shrink to anything past 30. I wear a 29" waist and I bought 28s which have already stretched like crazy.

    Mine stretched from a 28 waist to a 31 waist before washing. When I washed them tehy shrank back to almost a 28 waist and after wearing them for something like two days they stretched back out to a 30.

    You should return them and buy 28

    I wear mine low on the hip too and my true waist sze is 30 inches

    Damn, so basically theres no way of getting the wasit shrink? I wear a belt on my ES it kinda like holds the waist of the jeans on my hips. Would that affect the shrinking of the waist after washing due to long months of wearing the belt???

    No. They will shrink after months of being worn, yes, but they will only shrink back to their original size. They will not shrink to a smaller size. If you wanted a 28 or 29, then you should have bought a 28 or 29. Why didn't you?

    ya so what i have heard is that they will stretch out like mad if you buy them one size down, but the good thing is they stretch back to around tag size when you finally do decide to wash them. so in your case i think you should get another pair with a smaller size
