@maya2008:  My Fiance said the same thing! “Why don’t you buy bigger pants if they’re so skin tight?” Not cool bro, not cool. Haha.

@maya2008:  Oh!! Ouch!!!

 

@missrobots:  I’m so sorry you’re going through this right now. He’s never caught me in the middle of the jeans dance….he, however, did catch me right in the middle of a face mask and a saran wrap hair treatment bathroom once though. I was dancing around to The Temptations in my ugly shirt. It was heartbreaking. Pretty sure I traumatized him

I was just complaining about freshly washed jeans right before my husband left. He laughed at me.

There is an article I’m trying to find that stated that you don’t need to wash jeans as much as you think (With the exception of them being stained/visibly dirty) since the tight knit of denim prevents a lot of gunk from building up on them.

Levi Strauss encourages you to not wash jeans (But it has more to do with worldwide water consumption) and to put them in the freezer to kill off germs and icky things.

I generally don’t wash my jeans very often. They just don’t get dirty & I really hate to re-stretch them out.

@Hyperventilate:  I don’t wash my jeans often either. I only wear them if I’m going out (not to work) and change into my “comfy clothes” when I get home.

Yeah I don’t wash jeans often and I never put them in the dryer!

I’m in a LDR and so I’m expecting there will be many a moments when we discover hilarious things about each other living together.

haha I remember at the height of the super-tight jeans fad, the salesgirl got me into these way too small jeans (didn’t even do up) and didn’t want to get me a larger size, she was adamant that I need to wrestle myself into them and squat in them etc…. she tried to get me to do these squats and stretches with her in the store and was telling us both that they’re not the right size jeans unless I have to lie on the bed to do them up. She even suggested he could help wrestle me into them.

I disagreed (comfort is as important as style, to me, and I hate having a muffin top) and she reluctantly got me another size, but you should have seen my FI’s eyes pop, it was a very englihtening experience for him… guys are never told this about their jeans! lol!

@Hyperventilate:  This is a little gross, but when I read the article about jeans in the freezer, I HAD to do an experiment. At the time I had 3 pairs, and I wore/washed 2 of them as I normally would, i.e. depending on how clean they felt. The third pair was the test subject, and I went three months without washing those babies to see how far I could push it. At first, yes the freezer trick is amazing, but after three months, ExH finally forced me to give up the ghost. His exact words – “Not only do they start to smell like dirty laundry an hour after you put them on, they also smell like freezer burn. So freezer burned dirty laundry. Please wash them. Boil them even.”

That’s my story.

I NEVER dry my jeans completely I wash them,hang them to dry, and if they are wrinkly, I’ll throw them in the dryer on delicate for 5 mins Tops.  

I still do the Squat dance to stretch them a bit though. 🙂

I have to wash my jeans every time,  I’m in the awkward “jeans I own are slightly big but don’t fit into the next size down” stage and if I don’t dry them I will have baggy butt and slipping waist bands.  Its lame. So I frequently do the “jeans falling down” wiggle. Dh laughs because his jeans fit. Womens sizes are so frustrating.

@HisMoon:  That’s hilarious! Thank you for throwing yourself on the line in the name of science. 🙂

I let my jeans hang dry and then throw them in the dryer for the last 15-20 minutes of a cycle to soften them up, and it seems to prevent the clean jeans dance!
