    Actually - it does not mean anything. It is not proper English. newtun's interpretation is incorrect, because in that context, it would be 'they become loose with time'.

    It is a simble of chinese lunar new year,which means hope for fortune!

    Hi Simona. It depends on what "they" refers to in this sentence.
    If you are talking about shirts or clothes, for instance, it means they are no longer tight and with time they become slightly bigger. If "they" refers to screws, for example , it means they are no longer firmly fixed in place.
