    About as much as all the denim I've tried. Everything I've worn has stretched to the same degree.

    It all depends on how tight they are in the first place. For example, my current jeans started out at 29.75" inches, and are now 31" even. My Nudies which started out 31" only stretch to maybe 31.5" (since my hips are about 30.5", where I wear the jeans). If you get them tight, but comfortable enough that you can button them up all the way, they'll stretch out to a regular-fit waist.

    but they are pretty tight on the leg for old thunder thighs.

    Maybe you shoulda got the 21? Either way, just wear them and they will loosen up a bit. Not sure it'll be as much as you want though...

    Hmm. My advice would be to consider returning them and find a pair of jeans that gives you more tightness on the waist with more looseness in the hip/thighs area. If the Diors are tight on your thighs, you can wait it out and they will stretch.. but wash em again and they'll just go back to being super tight. It's all up to you.
