What brand are you buying?? First...NEVER dry a good shirt. I hang up all my button ups and my pols, as well as my kids. Anything that they wear in public goes on a hanger. Also if you have to dry it, then put it on low permanent press dry so that they dryer doesnt get hot. MOst of the time washing doenst shrink a shirt too badly but the dryer does. Also certain brands are BAD about shrinking. I know its annoying to buy a bit more expensive brands, but its all worth it. I bought my son a few polos at the Gap. They were just the solid pique polo and one of them came out two sizes smaller. I shouldn't have dried it but I forgot it was in there. Then I bought my younger son the same shirt from the same store,but the toddler sizes are thicker than the boys. It didnt shrink a bit. Tommy Hilifiger shirts shrink UP instead of in. All of the walmart clothes Ive ever bought shrink really bad. Nevertheless, just stop drying shirts.
