Will 100% cotton stretch?

So, I finally was able to get my A pocket skull jeans on.... I had to struggle just a little bit. Now I have them on and they are a little tight. But only in the waist area. Maybe a little in the bum, but mainly in the waist because they sit right on my hip bones. So my question is- will they stretch (cause 100% cotton) and is there a way to stretch them so I don't have to dance to get them on I really like them- I tried to resell them, but noone bid, so I may be stuck with them.

Here are some pics of them on They def feel tight and my belly kinda hangs over when I sit down.

Spray the tight areas with water to damp stretch. 100% cotton does loosen up with wear.

eta:they look great. just damp stretch and wear them for a while.

I use Downey Wrinkle Releaser (it comes in a spray bottle)...it is awesome because not only does it make the jeans damp, but it also relaxes the fibers so they will give more

I think they look really great But, yes, 100% cotton does have some give with a couple hours of wear.

Yes, but wash cold, and stretch waist while damp...obviously don't put them in the dryer but maybe for a minute to soften them up.

PS...WHAT belly!?

I've gone through one whole bottle too!
It's way better than the uncomfortable damp stretching out of the washer. Which I had to do yesterday...ick.
