the wash the perfect - i love that. but the fit...not so much. i dont know whether i should try to hot water shrink them (and risk ruining the color/wash) or just return them (i dont know that the next size down would work though). the measurements i have gotten for this size indicated that they would fit, but i was wrong
it's so strange - i guess i am a "medium" 25 and the waist measurement is ok BUT I can tell they are pretty stretchy just by how much I am able to slide my hand around the inside of the waistband when I have them on. Hopefully the 24 will work - otherwise I'll be so sad
new pics (these are not good pics and ignore the fortune cookie papers on the mirror - i had to "borrow" my sister's mirror from college. oh and ignore the background - had to take pics in the unfinished part of the basement)
i have to wash them and see how much they shrink up before I consider hemming them. I'm also hoping the looseness near the knees shrinks up a bit because after saggy butts, the next thing I despise are saggy knees.
