I'd try exchanging them if I were you, and if that doesn't work they DO only run you around $33.
Is the stretching that significant?
Would you recommend going a size smaller when buying the non-rigid 514s?
I just bought a pair of size 34 "tumble rigids" and fit exactly as I want them around the waist, however the legs and thighs of the 33s seem to fit better but they are a bit snug around the waist.
I like the way the 34s feel but do not want them to stretch to the point where they start to look like "relaxed" jeans, will the 33s stretch to a similar fit of that of the 34s once stretched?
