I'd like to shrink them about 1/2 a size- the size I have is baggy but if I go down a size they're usually too snug. I hate snug around my middle.

Any ideas or am I sol?

Thank you - I've posted more today than I have since I joined....must be spring!

If you can't make both ends meet, make one end potatoes.

Wash them and put them in the dryer.  That will do it for you.  Smile

Wash and rinse in hot water.

Running them through the washer and dryer may cause them to shrink a bit; however, it may also cause them to draw up and wrinkle along the seams.  Good luck.

 ITA with Doopsie!  The dryer will shrink stuff every time!

THe dryer sometimes mis shapens things though- try and wash them in hot water and air dry. Take small steps and see if that shrinks them enough! Cool
