Hey,

I just recently bought a pair of nudies (slim jim dry). The waist is 31, which is a bit big. My true waist size is 30.

Do you guys have any tips on how to make a pair of nudies slightly smaller in terms of waist?

Do slim jim's tend to stretch much?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why did you size up? You should have sized down.

Yeah, even if you shrink them, they will stretch back. Exchange.

I think that Brian and I have both commented on this extensively. The denim will stretch at the waist only to accomodate your waist movements. If you have super tight jeans, they will stretch a lot. On the other hand, if your jeans are loose, expect minimal stretching. My 5EPs haven't stretched at all. They were slightly loose at the waist to begin with, and have stayed pretty much the same.

APCs have the stretchiest denim, and will stretch out more throughout the jean. However, they are an expection, and even then, they will not stretch more than an inch if they are not that tight to begin with.
