Luvapup Levi Capital E 501

Here they are!
I got my regular size in jeans, 27.

Still with tags, they are enormous. Too foolishly big to wear for ANY reason as is:

Better view here:
No, my gut is not really bulging in the front

They are big enough to put a small child down the back..


So now they are laying flat in the tub of hot water, with some added boiling water.
NO AGITATION.
I will let them sit for a half hour, add more boiling.
I will let drain dry, and then repeat process once or twice.
Then I will try them on again.
I really want this to work, I like them but dang, they are enormous!

Now this is exciting! I'm pretty sure the amount of shrinkage will leave you with a satisfactory fit. Good to have you on the dry side.

...which means the AF dry invasion well underway...muahaha.

This is interesting, I would like to see how much yours shrink up. I bought a size 26 and hot soaked it. It didn't shrink even close to where I would be able to wear it without it looking like clown pants. I even put it in the dryer and dried it all the way.
It was so baggy I haven't been wearing it... It's been sitting in my closet. I guess I'm just used to my citizens... I'm gonna try again with some Japanese raws... (as soon as I find some).
Hope you have better luck!

Ok well, they have gone through TWO cycles of boiling water soak, and hang dry.

I am taking the combined advice on how to treat them and soaking hot for an hour or so, then drying.

They DID shrink SOME...but no where near enough to wear.

I am going to try two more cycles of the same to see what can be done, but I may have to abort the mission..

If its at all possible, the denim is even STIFFER now that its been wet and hung dry than it was while still with the cardboard labels on it.

I really hope I can effect enough shrinkage, as I like them, and they were not easy to find.
I don't know if I could find a smaller size identical to these.

Joan your waist is so tiny! I love the jeans. I'm sorry they're too big.
