How much would boiling my jeans shrink them?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi. I wear a really awkward size between 31x30 and 32x30. I think some jeans tend to stretch a bit over time, as some 31x30 jeans I have right now fit pretty well compared to when I bought them about six months ago, when they were really stiff and tight.

 

Right now, I have some 32x30 I got for Christmas gift. No receipts so I can't return them. I'm also a bit broke so I"m just surviving on these jeans and frozen pizza.

 

With the 32x30 jeans I had before, I'd just dry them in the dryer at medium/high settings and they'd fit pretty well, but these 32x30 jeans i have right now are really loose. I"m not really sure how thick my thighs are but these jeans are about 3-4 inches looser, and it would be great to bring it down to 2 inches (which is how thick my ATF jeans are). 

 

How much would boiling my jeans shrink them? Does boiling jeans do any damage to the stitching or the dyes? These are pretty cheap-feeling Vans jeans

 

Thanks

Since they are vans jeans it wouldnt hurt to try... I have heard of people doing this and it working but they eventually stretch back out.
