So, over the past year I have had three pairs of jeans secumb to really odd stretching, which is occurring from the fly zip out towards the hip. I’ve never had this before, but in all three pairs, there has been a sort of rippling occur, as though the elastic element has given up.
Does anyone know why this has happened, and if anyone has had similar occur, has anyone found a pair of jeans that don’t seem to be affected.
I haven’t put on weight or anything, so not sure what this can be.
Tumble dryers wreak havoc on the fabric of jeans/jeggings if the material is quite thin/very stretchy. I’ve binned a number of pairs from Sainsbury’s that just either shrunk so much it was difficult to get them on or were baggy in all the wrong places.
Yep, me too. I never put modern jeans in the dryer as the lycra/polyester doesn't fair well. So I know it's not the dryer that's causing it. I did wonder if it was because I dry them on a heated towel rail and the failed bit is where the fabric sits on the heated bar, but I'm not convinced. I've had it happen with Sainsbury's, Peacocks and another one, can't remember the make. Not with Dorothy Perkins Frankie jeans though.
