According to blueowl, the waist on the Okayamas are expected to shrink .5". I'm wondering if they would stretch back out eventually? I am about a 30.5" and am unsure between size 31 (30.5") and 32 (31.5").
Also, do the thighs and knees shrink significantly after a soak too?
Thanks for the advice!
Mine were a little tight on the waist before initial soak. After a room temp soak for 20 mins they shrunk a little over .5 inches... I imagine if you use really hot water and leave it in a little longer you'll get an inch of shrinkage. After wearing mine almost a month the waist has stretched at least an inch since its much looser than it was presoak. I didnt take measurements of the knees but my thigh shrunk about .2 inch.
