i did a hot soak (as hot as my bath water would get) over night with some hand agitation from time to time for my first soak, and hung them outside until fully dry. I was not confident that there was full shrinkage and so i did another hot soak overnight. the second hot soak made a big difference.
I found doing a second hot soak to also be very helpful with getting all the shrinkage out.

Measurement post-soaked

Size tag 33
waist = 15.5"
thigh = 12.8"
knee = 9.4"

Before I soaked it, I only measured the waist which was 16"

I just realized that SRs are a little bit bigger in thigh area rather than my SBs.

Wish that could make it a lil bit smaller  >:(

I've done hot soak before...

I'm not sure if I do hot soak, it will affect.

Every time I've done my method I've gotten ridiculous amounts of shrink.  It mostly happens in the tumble dry, but I don't like how it gets soft afterwards, so I give another soak to get the stiffness back.

I work in a hospital, so jeans are pretty much a no go. I donated to a fundraiser today which will allow me to wear jeans for the next two weeks - yay, Denim for Disabilities!

Tonight when I get home, I shall begin what should be about 325 consecutive hours in my SR's. I'll take them off for the shower, other than that it's gonna have to be a damn good reason.
