    So I tried on some river island jeans and one of the people working there told me that they have a habit of becoming quite loose after wearing them for a few hours.

    Anyway, I really like them but they are a bit expensive for me! I'd like to buy them, so does anyone have any experience of river island jeans? Do they really become that loose? Loose jeans are a great hate of mine...

    Yes! I thought that too. But I think with jeans, unless you spend a small fortune they all tend to go loose.

    Yeah I find that they go loose too, not majorly but best worn after they've just been washed.

    I bought a pair of river island jeans a while back and they were the worst jeans ever, I know all jeans go a bit baggy but the RI ones were ridiculous. I'd suggest going for topshop or H&M instead if you want to get high street jeans.

    Yeah, all jeans go baggy after a few hours, it will happen as the fabric stretches, and a wash 'shrinks' them back to size

    Maybe I buy magic jeans but it doesn't generally happen to me But I really can't stand it when jeans become a whole size looser :mad: My last ones were from republic (very good jeans actually, and when they have a sale they are very cheap).

    I had never had problem with ri jeans untilo i bought my last pair. I spent over 40 pounds on some dark denim skinnys in size 8, after i had washed them they were no use and far to loose. I dont wear them at all so what a waste of money! Topshop are good but they dont have the choice at RI.

    I find that they shrink back to size after I wash them, but I've started just buying them a size too small and stretching them to my size over time.

    I really love River Island jeans until you've had them for about 6months, then they go all stiff and out of shape.
    Although there sizes confuse the hell out of me...their size 14 jeans are always far too tight and wont do up, but their size 12s fit perfectly...i mean i'm not complaining about fitting into a smaller size, it's just odd and has happened a few times now!!

    my boyfriend bought me two pairs of RI jeans for christmas! One was a more fitted, boot cut fit, the other was the sort of baggy feel. anyway the baggy ones became huge, and a few months ago i sat on the sofa and put my legs underneath me, as you do, and they tore across the knee!

    INo idea about River Island buttt most of my Next and DP jeans have all gotten loose faily quickly.

    HOWEVER, the Oasis Scarlet jean is apparently really good at not loosing its shape - this according to a sales assistant, I don't have any myself.

    If you have a shop called Krisp near you, they're definitely worth checking out. I bought a pair from there in November (for about 25 quid) and they've held up really well.

    Most of my jeans have done this and now i can't wear them without a belt. Either they're too tight and when you bend down they erm show flesh, or they're too loose and show even more flesh. I have some white skinny jeans which after being washed i can hardly get on, yet they loosen up over the time i wear them.

    I have some black jeans from River island which i hardly wear. They're not exactly in fashion now really but what annoys me about them is the fact that all the gold detail such as the gold on the buttons and some of the stitching has faded in the wash. Waste of money. So now i buy all my jeans from New look, if i wear jeans at all.

    I love River Island jeans! I've got several pairs and I think they're good quality and wear well; never had a problem with them. If it makes any difference, I buy the straight leg jeans (not the really skinny ones but still slim down the leg).

    listen to the employees, we know what we're talking about :P
    mine fit when i put them on but after like an hour i have to constantly pull them up, i think it's a ploy to get everyone to buy belts
