bought a bunch of american apparel t-shirts via some wholesale site. paid $8 instead of retail $18. they were snug to begin with but after a couple of washes the one ive worn was suddenly midriff bearing and not one worth bearing. i dont doubt the laundromat uses too much heat in washer and dryer as this is not my first go round with shrinkage but i chalk that up to the cost of not doing it myself. in actuality, i would ruin more clothes than they do for sure. so i looked it up. i guess some shrinkage is inevitable for these shirts but i was surprised when i measured that it was at least three inches off the bottom compared to an unworn, unwashed one. only one option,
diet & exercise size up.
