Elastic getting a little old?

These are nice in every way - substantial knit and construction. However, the stretch around the waist and hips is a bit 'crunchy' and seems like it rips a bit when you pull them up, the way elastic gets when it is a bit old. So that may be why they are on sale, but I wonder how long these will last with the frequent laundering that work out wear gets?
