Stretch Jeans: Spandex, Elastin, Lycra, etc... ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Spandex, Elastin, Lycra, etc...? plus 98% cotton or whatever percentage.

I recently picked up a pair of jeans in a combination blend of 98% cotton / 2% Spandex

(1) Are ALL of these considered STRETCH JEANS?
(2) What's the "definition" of stretch jeans after multiple wears and after washing and drying?
(3) are they considered "Stretch" because they retain their shape better after washing?
(4) They WILL eventually stretch out over time right (as with most jeans)??
(5 a) OR Probably a stupid question, but are they considered "stretch jeans" because one can size down and still be able to get into them because the fabric can "stretch out" and allow the individual to squeeze into a pair?
(5 b) in this case, are you suppose to size down?

(5) Any other info would be helpful.

they're considered stretch b/c the fabric (spandex, elastin, lycra) are stretchy fabrics. a jeans would be considered rigid if it's 100% cotton, cotton/polyester, cotton/elasterell, etc b/c those fabrics are stretchy. although many rigid jeans will loosen up w/ wear they are still considered rigid b/c they don't contain spandex/lycra/elastin

I always wondered this too... and what is the difference between the different stretchy materials when they are in jeans.
