thanks for the help slap
When i pick up my stf jean tomorrow, i just need to make sure it fits snug on my waist, then it should be the correct waist size right? If its a tiny bit loose on waist, then i will reorder it in size 31.
Remember, these are my opinion and my experience. Results may vary.
YES. Trying them on will your best option. If you try on the 32s, and they fit loose or even fit perfectly, I would reorder size 31. The waist does shrink in the soaking procedure, but in my experience, they stretch back, sometimes even more than the tagged size. So I recommend buying the pair that fits snug (but able to button all the way), soaking them, and wearing them, which stretches them out.
And about working out, I don't think so. Cause the leg opening will remain the same. That's why I recommend "tapered" fit. Same fit around the thighs, but a slight taper to the ankles.
HOLD UP! If you plan on using the dryer, then I'm 100% sure the waist will shrink! I did not use the dryer. The dryer will definitely shrink the waist, by 1-2inches. You can try it, but I didn't want to risk ruining my pair. Follow my recommendation if you DO NOT plan on using the dryer... EVER.
If won't "fade too fast", but the fade just won't have that sexy super-contrast effect.
For my pair, it shrunk slightly on the waist, but wearing it out 2 days, it stretched back to original. NOTE: I DID NOT USE DRYER.
As far as that "bubble butt", I don't think it's aviodable. I'm quite confident that the only solution is to sag or wear it until the denim soften up.

Also, there's always going to be some sizing inconsistency within jean models. Thats why it's best to try them on before purchasing if possible.
I STILL RECOMMEND TAPERED/SLIM PANTS
