    Shrink... a little bit.

    If you want to shrink them stick them in the dryer - that'll do the trick.

    Mine have all shrunk when I use the 'hot' option on the washer on the first few washes.... well, that was an exaggeration... many of mine, and I own over 30 pairs.

    I don't think they've ever grown before! It would be nice if they did though.

    they shrink, but not around the waist. The legs usually get shorter and tighter.

    Yes, very true.. which is annoying for bellbottoms coz' the bells suddenly look quite sad.

    Jeans can only shrink in the wash. But good quality jeans are usually pre-shrunk.

    But when you wear them, they will take on the shape of your bum and legs.

    Well imagine how a guy would suffer...

    You shouldn't wash jeans at a temperature higher than 30 or 40 c. They're bound to shrink otherwise.

    Yeh.... I forget. Besides, I'm in boarding school and most of my clothes have been wrecked by communal washing (explaining the need for so many jeans).

    Jeans shouldn't be washed very often.

    what i hate is that they fade out, ok so sometimes it's nice to get them out of the washing machine looking all faded out but i don't like it when my dark coloured jeans do this! :mad:

    I only wear a pair of trousers once before washing them though!
