Oh no...

So the J.Crew Matchstick jeans that I picked out in the store were my size, but they only had them in a short fit. The sales assistant was super helpful and ordered my size in regular fit (same style) from a different factory store and then had them shipped right to my house. 

I go to try them on today and .... they're baggy! Has this happened to anyone else? It's the same size and style that I tried on in the store, but they fit so differently! Do you think regular sizes are different than short sizes in the width of the leg as well as the length? Does anyone have any tips to help my jeans shrink up a little? 

I really don't want to go through the hassle of sending them back and trying my luck again, so any help would be much appreciated! 


  1. give me the jeans and I will put them in our dryer for 30 minutes. they WILL shrink. guaranteed. honestly though ... your dryer should work too?

  2. An old friend of mine worked at the Gap, and she gave me this piece of advice: try on every pair of jeans at the store because none of them fit the same. It doesn't shrink them, but at least you know for the future!
