Do jeans need to be broken in?
Jeans really do conform to your body, and when you wash them, most of the shape is lost. Most jeans today, however, are treated (pre-washed to achieve a faded look) and don’t need to be broken in. These you can wash more often but only when they’re stained or when they start to sag.

Should I buy jeans a size smaller?
SOLUTION: Jeans do stretch out, but it’s not always the best idea to buy them one size smaller. Chances are, you will never get to wear them, and this is especially true for skinny jeans. If you have taken the time to do the fitting tests in the dressing room, you won’t have to buy one size smaller.
