Jeans too tight after washing

Question by Guest | Last update on 2023-11-30 | Created on 2016-10-01

It is really not easy for me to find some fitting jeans. However, not long ago I really thought that I have finally found one.

But wrong! I have just fetched it from my washing machine and I directly wanted to put it on, but after the washing it is much too tight, the jeans is really tautly and skintight now!

What can I do now? This cannot be true, now I thought once that I have found the perfect jeans!

No need to worry! That jeans are becoming tighter after they have just been freshly washed is completely normal.

Generally it should be sufficient to just go for a walk for an hour or so with those jeans on to get back their original size.

I am even intentionally purchasing my jeans that they are a little bit too tight so that later they are fitting just right. Jeans that are perfectly fitting immediately after they are coming out of the washing machine will widen in shortest time so that they start slobbering and they are not fitting anymore for the most time.

I totally agree with Lipstick, the same applies to me.

At the beginning when the trouser is fresh washed, it is still a bit tight, taut and hard. With time, the jeans are adapting and then perfectly fitting.

If you want to speed up this adaption, you can also stretch your legs in the one or other direction, you can try a half split or do some knee bends in order to faster make the jeans softer.

I have the same problem and it did not get back to the first size, it's tight and I have even trouble with my coat.

Please help me if I can make it a little bit larger.

Just wear them, even if they are too tight after washing.

The longer you wear them, the more they will stretch and come back to its size before.

You will quickly get used to the tighter fit and will want it to stay that tight! As my jeans stretch back to its normal size after a while, I miss the tightness and tighten my belt.
