Shrinking pants on purpose?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So I just got some new jeans, they are almost a perfect fit, I just need to try and shrink them a little, im in between sizes right now so everything doesnt fit quite right.I think if I shrunk them they would be perfect!

But how do you shrink jeans? Hot water? Cold water? Im so confused, I never tried to shrink something on purpose before...lol.Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hot water should shrink them if they aren't pre-shrunk.

Whatever water you use, just put them in the dryer on high and they are sure to shrink--unless I gain weight every time I dry my jeans???

I never dry my pants in the dryer!!! Nor most of my shirts/sweaters. I hang or lay flat to dry. Clothes shrink and get too short in the legs and arms and also get worn looking to fast in a dryer!! (that's were all the lint comes from)

Aren't they all stiff when you put them on? I'd be really uncomfy if I were to air dry mine!

And where do you put all those things to dry flat?? I don't need wet clothes all over the place in addition to the usual clutter. And it sure is nice to put a pair of warm pants pulled from the dryer on these cold mornings.

Eat a few donuts. The pants will shrink to the right size

I usually shrink the things I don't want to shrink... like my favorite sweaters, but never the sweatshirt that is a tad too big

The best way to shrink jeans is put them in the dryer on high. In fact, this is a sure way to shrink almost anything.....Im very leery of putting the dryer on high as a result lol!

I recently lost a bit of weight (about 20-25 lbs) and my size 5 jeans were rather on the larger size. They had never been in the dryer, so just popped them in there and voila! They fit perfectly now. But of course I buy a smaller size now when I buy new ones.

Alternating cold and hot is what shrinks cotton the most.

Yup - I agree! Although anymore it's not shrinking that I want............ (unless it's me)!
