Jeans too tight after washing

Question by Guest | 01/10/2016 at 12:15

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.

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.
