Will these rigid 514s stretch to accommodate my thunder thighs and ghetto booty?

So I've always had a habit of fitting my jeans too big. They fit well off the rack, but then tend to sag too low on my hips after a few months. keeping this in mind, I went for about as tight as I could handle when I picked up these jeans.

After purchasing however, I'm a little wary of these pants and just looking for some advice. These are both a tighter fit than I've ever gone with, a tighter style than I've historically worn, and they're a rigid denim (I tend to trend towards softer denim).

These are the rigid style, pre-shrunk (washed once, I believe). You'll have to excuse the image quality, I had to self-timer these in less than ideal lighting conditions.

They fit snug in the waist, and tight in the thighs, seat, and crotch. As far as range of motion, I can get into a full squat but can't lift my knee up past my waist or so standing up. Again, never had jeans this tight before so now sure what sort of range of motion restriction is normal.

They showcase a little bit more of the backside than I'd like. Can I reasonably expect them to loosen up a fair bit? I still want them to fit reasonably slim, but not near skin-tight as they currently are in the thighs and seat.

Not tons of experience here, but I would expect them to loosen up some. If you search I remember some threads that had tips that people used to loosen up their jeans slightly. Might give that a shot.

Just wear around the house, watching TV, etc. for a few days and they'll loosen up The front pic doesn't look tight, but they are tight in the rear. 514's are designed for average white guys with no ass. With a liitle wear, they'll be fine.
