I have come accross a few pairs of jeans lately that I LOVE!! but they all seem to measure about a size too big (at least an inch big on all the measurements, but less than 2")
From your experience, is it possible to shrink a size with some serious hot washing and drying?
They are rare pairs that I would hate to pass up.
Thanks in advance!!!

^ In my experience, all of my pairs shrink but then stretch out with wear :eek:

You can always have them altered if you are serious about keeping them. :eek: Shi is a badass at altering :D

I think there are threads of this sort in the Helpful/Reference section. :magwink

In my experience, always wait for a pair of jeans that actually fits you, if anything, always buy a size down to compensate for stretching.

Trust me, I've wasted enough money on denim that I find myself taking to the tailor now or donating away just to make room for new clothes.

^:yes
If there is just one problem area, like the waist or the thighs, then altering works for just about 1" (1-2" for waist). IMO much more really doesn't work.

shrinking doesn't work. best way is to alter.
