Hmmm... yes, Marti, I would certainly encourage you to continue wearing it. The legs fit looks good and proper, except for the waist.
For 2 days of wearing after soaking, I think this pair stretches fast. The denim is fantastic and it should be a good pair to keep.
So, here's mine measurements. http://tuckshoprailnews.com/2013/11/29/ues-contest-post-wash-fit-400z/
Hot soak and cold machine washed. It seems weird as it looks like it shrinks just a little base on the numbers. I am quite sure I have measured them properly BiG style. However, the fit is definitely trimmed down after soak. Anyway, the fit pic.
