Needing a new pyjama bottom I ordered the charcoal version in XXL as sizes are limited and XL was not available . I anticipated that I would be able to wash and shrink the garment in the dryer . This tightened up the waist and shortened the length a bit , but the width of the legs did not change. I appear to be ":drowning" in them . This Gaucho style is not for me with my thick waist and slim short legs !
