i got a pair of zathan 772. skin tight in the thigh, i dont want this. theyve been washed few times (possibily tumble hot dried, not sure bought these used).

too tight in the thigh. i was thinking i should spray some water in the thigh and just wear them.

yup just do the damp method, spary some water on the parts you feel may be small, and just hang out in them, do some lunges, and squats...and don't put in the dryer ever when you wash..it should work for ya!

best way to stretch jeans is to wear them

if the thighs are tight at the moment, the more you wear them the faster they will stretch out

Just keep them on for 2 days and they will be stretched out

blm suggested stuffing pocketbooks in your front pockets while wearing them. It works great for me.

I sometimes sleep in them. Or yes, do squats. But if they're REALL too tight don't do the squats. Tha back pockets might start to come undone.

The best way to stretch jeans is definetely having sex with them ( on ). <- Attention should be especially paid to the word in brackets.

Do a triathlon in them. You'll get them wet with the swim, stretch them with the bike and run. You'll also lose weight, so your hips won't be too big.

how long do you wear the jeans when doing the damp method? til they dry?

post #23 of 32

nice necropost.

 

wear them till they fit.

 

better yet, buy the correct size (or cut, if just one body part is a problem--you're probably wearing the wrong cut for you) and you'll avoid the issue ;)

post #24 of 32

they are the correct size and cut, they are zatiny's these are honestly the first pair of zatiny's that just killed my thighs, must be something with the 8st wash, but the waist is perfect and the back rise it's just the thigh area that's the problem

I got the easy method dudes and dudettes!  You need a carjack though!   You seen the Ebay stretcher right?  This is better for a number of reasons.  1) If you already have a jack you got 3/4 of everything you need - so no cost involved.  2)  This method stretches the CRAP out of your jean's waistline.

 

You need:

 

1 - A compact-car car jack.  These are the scissors type jacks that have a long bolt running through them. As you twist the bolt the center of the jack rises from the base.  These are pretty small and light but powerful as %$#@!  You may want to clean the jack of any grease that may come in contact with expensive material.  Or wrap it in an old cotton  T or something.     

 

2 - A length of wood (2x4) OR if you are a percussionist, as I am, a 14" tom hoop.  If you don't have a tom hoop you can improvise with the wood.  The wood should be about 14" in my case - my waist is 35".  You may need a shorter or longer piece, once you see what you are getting into you can make a decision.  

 

3- tape measure.  

 

Instructions:       

 

Take your jeans and put them in hot bath water and let them soak for about 10-15 mins.  You want the thread of the jeans to get saturated through.  After the soak, wring them out.

 

Prepare a place on your floor or porch, or someplace where the jeans can lay until they dry.  

 

Fasten the jeans waistline button and zip them up.  You want to stretch the waistline and below the waistline too to ensure a comfortable fit.    

 

If using wood:  A. Take jack and turn the bolt on the jack to make the jack top raise from the base enough to slip the wood through the scissors of the jack.  When you do this properly, you will create something of a cross or large X, with the wood going through the jack. B. Lay your jeans on the space you have prepared flat, with the front button and zipper in the UP position and the back pockets on the surface of the table or floor. C. Slip your hand into the waistline under the button and lift it up. D. Slip the jack and wood contraption into the gap.  The wood should extend within the waistline from the left hip to the right hip.  The base of the jack should be within the waistline and sitting on the table or floor (material between base and surface).  The top of the jack should be within the waistline and pressed up against the back of the button.  E.  The 'X' in the illustration below is the bolt of the jack.  Once set up properly, as you turn the bolt the jack will raise higher, stretching between the back of the jeans and the front button.  Use a tape measure to measure the waistline.  Then, raise the jack until the material stretches to the desired length.  (I stretched a pair of CINCH jeans with a 29" waistline 7" up to a 36" waistline!)  Let pants dry with contraption in them.                

 

                                      Button

                                       -------- ( Top of jack)

                                          ||

                                          ||

                                          ||

                Left hip ========X======== (Wood through scissors) Right hip

                                          ||

                                          ||

                                          ||

                                      ---------

                                 Back of jeans

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                      Floor 

 

Be careful not to exert too much pressure with the jack.  You can easily break the button, break the zipper, or tear the material if not careful.  You may want to do the waistline over night, then slide the contraption further into the pants on a second stretch to stretch the butt out.      

 

 

If using drum hoop:  Substitute hoop for wood.  Put hoop into waistline, Put jack through hoop. See picture!
