Okay, so this is my first post here and am hoping to get some quick advice (and I hope I am posting in the right place). I just purchased two pairs of Hudson jeans from Nordstrom's today and am debating on whether or nor they are worth keeping. Everywhere I read I see people complaining about Hudson jeans stretching out after wearing for a few hours and to go a size smaller than usual. Since I bought size 24 and they apparently don't go any lower, I am worried I just wasted $400. So I am about 5"7 110lb (sometimes less). I bought two different styles: Hudson midrise elle baby bootcut and the misdrise beth baby bootcut. The 24s fit SO perfectly as they are now (other than the fact that one of them is a bit long with my heels). Has anyone had experience with these specific styles? Will I be wading in them by the end of the day?? I noticed that the material of the beth style is a little thinner and feels like they might stretch... I have been wearing Guess jeans for years in size 24 or 25, depending on the style. That's the closest to a comparison I can give since I don't typically splurge this much on jeans. Also Miss Me I wear a 25. Hoping someone who compares to me in size can give feedback. Also, what is the best way to wash these? The sales girl told me wash in HOT water but I have read differently everywhere else. Will the length shrink at all after washing? Nordstrom's also said they would hem for free after I wash, but I'm not sure if I want to do that if the jeans are going to stretch out on me regardless. Lastly, how are the regular bootcut in comparison to baby bootcut? I like a bit of a flare but not too much. Unfortunately, my Nordstrom's didn't have any plain boot Any input is greatly appreciated!!!
Need advice on Hudson jeans!!!

I don't really have any experience with the boot cuts. In terms of stretching, I'd say they stretch a bit but probably not an entire size. What is the make up of the jeans? Also, washing them in hot water may cause shrinkage and will likely cause the wash to bleed. If you do decide to keep them and get them hemmed, I would say to wash them first, so they shrink a bit and then get them hemmed. If you air dry and wash cold, you'll avoid a lot of shrinkage.
