They’re awful. Whether you dried them or not doesn’t matter. Even when you let them hang dry they don’t fit right on the first wear. The key is to put them on your body 2 hours before you have to be anywhere. Then you do 10 jumping jacks, 10 lunges (5 right, 5 left), walk up and down a flight of stairs 3 times, sit down for 90 minutes with the jeans buttoned, zipped and your gut pushed out like you just ate a 12 ounce filet and 10 baked potatoes. By the time you stand up, they will feel much better.
