Does anyone know how to stretch jeans that have shrunk?

Hi. You cannot stretch a woven fabric like denim. The only thing you can do is to take them out of the dryer soon after the wrinkle goes out of them. Roughly 5 minutes. Hope this helps! (01/01/2010)

While they are still wet pull them over the back of a chair, let them stay til dry. Good luck. (01/01/2010)

You could use pants stretchers. These are metal frames inserted into wet pants to make a crease, and dry them. They are available at a website called Lehman's. (01/02/2010)

I'm not convinced that you cannot stretch denim. I had a pair that shrunk and while they were still wet I pulled them length wise and across the middle section. I hung them over the shower curtain rod and every so often I'd go and pull again. Unless I gained overnight; they were stretched and they still fit. Now I just put them in the dryer for a very short time and hang them to dry. I do that with all my clothes. If it's just the length you're concerned about I'd hang them on a pants hanger so the weight of the water would stretch them. (01/06/2010)
