Advice for Melrose

I just got some Melroses in Dark Resin. I know they're highly faked (and I'll post pictures for you ladies to authenticate once I learn how to use my camera's zoom option), but they're BEAUTIFUL. Here's the problem: I'm usually a 26/27 in jeans and these are a 25. I got them over my thighs fine, but squeezed them over my hips and sucked my stomach in order to button them. So pretty much my nasty fat is hanging out like no other and it's tight in the hips, but from hips down, everything feel comfy. My legs can definitely breathe. It's not so tight to the point where I can't make it through the day, but do you think I'll be able to stretch the hips out? Should I keep it? What kind of exercises can I try in order to make my hips smaller? I guess I'll try to get my camera to work and hopefully you ladies will tell me they're fake so I won't be in this dilemma. TIA!

I apologize for the quality of the pics..

I'm not sure about Melroses, but I have a pair of HH in Dark Resin that are a little tight on me. I've been wearing them around and washing them for about 2-3 weeks, and they do not seemed to have stretched very much at all. Sorry I couldn't help with your specific question.. but good luck with your decision!

I think you actually got damn lucky and snagged a real pair, but a clearer tag pic would be nice.

you don't even know how much I hate you, lol, those are my size!

um well just do the wet-water stretch. Make the waistband wet and put like little paperbacks in there and squats and stuff.

Ditto what Lisastros said. I have the HH in Dark Resin and they are a bit tight and don't stretch much. As for authenticity, they seem to look good. What does the white paper hang tag look like? All the fakes seem to have the same tag. And me jealous, too! I've wanted these for FOREVER....

^another reason I say they are most likely authentic is because I have not seen any fake u-pockets yet...

I'm still contemplating whether or not I should keep it. I'm hoping my hips will miraculously shrink. I'll try to get a better tag pic but I don't know how to use my camera. The white tag is actually a Nordstrom tag. These will be up for sale soon if I decide not to keep them! Will dark resin rinse shrink? If these get any smaller then I am chopping off my left leg, for real They're just too beautiful.

don't dry them.

see if your camera has a flower button-that's a close-up taking button. use it.

If you can zip it up, you can make them fit!!

Those are def. real.

My HH dark resins in 25 stretched out like the dickens! Much more than I was expecting. However, I don't think they'll stretch a whole size.

Now the 26 dark clean melrose I have.... . Well...you'll be seeing them soon on the board (cheeeeap). Ya know...just for info sake

I have Melrose, but in a different wash...not sure which though...it could be Medium?? It also has the crease. Anyway, mine stretch out a tonne after I wear them! They become really loose in the waist, butt, and hips. I don't know if it's the wash or just the cut of Melrose.

hm that's weird. I guess I'm crazy because none of my paiges stretch out at all. My light cleans used to, but don't anymore. they are thinner fabric, though.

That is weird. I just checked the tag. I have them in Medium Clean with Crease. They were nicely fitted when I first got them (in the summer), but they end up really baggy after just a few hours. I'm expecting them in Dark Clean soon. I love them and decided I need a size smaller since mine are so big now. I will be able to compare soon! Hopefully these ones don't end up too small!

and I even have med. clean. those stretch out more than the others I have, but not much (well, at lesat to me!)

and you should be in luck-in my opinion dark clean holds it's shape pretty darn well!
