While denim is a fabric with a strong and durable construction, that does not mean it will withstand all external influences. In addition to fading and wear and tear, stretching is also a common sign of improper maintenance and cleaning . In addition, the process of losing weight or a “full” festive season is the cause of your jeans becoming “excessive” size more or less. Instead of wasting time looking for a new pair of “true” pants, ELLE will tell you the “hit fast, win fast” moves to continue to be with your favorite pants.
6 simple ways to help you adjust your jeans to the right shape and fit
If your pants stretch a bit, just put it on a standard machine wash cycle but set the water temperature to the hottest setting. This method is more effective when jeans are made from denim fabric that contains as much cotton as possible, even 100% cotton. It is important to note that you should not use any additional fabric softeners, such as fabric softener . To be more sure, before washing, you can soak the pants in hot water for at least 15 minutes and turn the inside side out to dry in the sun after finishing washing.
After washing with hot water, if still not satisfied with the shrinkage achieved, continue to put them in the dryer. Still the highest heat and all the heat will cause the fibers to tighten, returning your jeans to their original shape. If you do not have a clothes dryer, you can completely use a hair dryer instead.
If your jeans are just loose at the waist, try buying a 6-inch piece of elastic at any grocery or apparel store and sewing it to the inside of the waistband. In addition, with the keyword “waist hook” on e-commerce platforms, you can easily find a variety of convenient buttons without requiring too much “hands-on”.
This trick is the simplest way to “rescue” jeans that are too tight. Spray them with warm water and use your hands to stretch in desired areas while the fabric is still wet. Feel free to pull them in all directions, misting with more water if needed. Then, don’t use the dryer, let the pants dry on their own.
This may sound a little crazy, but it is an effective method to “re-measure” your jeans to your correct size. Warm (not hot!) water will help loosen and stretch the thread a bit. After 15-20 minutes or when you feel your belly, hips, and calves have become breathable and comfortable, step outside and dry your pants.
Same heat but this time, spread the pants on a flat surface and instead of letting it shrink on its own, heat the tight parts with a dryer. While the pants are still hot, you quickly stretch the fabric. Note that pull in the opposite direction of the fibers to gently separate their attachment. Continue heating during this process if the temperature drops.
