Can you stretch jeans?

Wash your jeans or soak them in a bucket or tub of water. Pull them out of the water or washing machine. Pull and stretch your denim in strategic spots, such as at the waist if they are too tight around your belly. Repeat this process several times to loosen the denim’s fibers.

Also, how can I permanently stretch my jeans?

Spray them with lukewarm water, and then lay the jeans out on the floor. Stand on each leg of the jeans, bend down, and use your hands to manually pull and stretch the jeans while they are wet. Feel free to pull them in any and all directions, reapplying the lukewarm water as needed.

How tight should Jeans be when you buy them?

The waistband should be snug. Try to fit two fingers down the back. If you can fit your whole hand, they are too loose, if only one or no fingers, too tight.
