Default How to make clothes bigger after they shrink in the wash...

I have a question.. Is there a way for me to make my clothes larger? I accidentally let my LRG jacket sit in the dryer and it shrank a little; I was hoping if anyone on here knew any secrets on how to gain back it's normal size.

if you don't mine, rewash the jacket, and while its still really moist, where it until it dries.

Hmmmm, no, it shouldn't have shrunk. Well, as someone else mentioned, you can try wetting it again, stretch it out, and hang dry it on a hanger or lay it flat across a drying rack. That may work.

Polyester sometimes shrivels up, but doesn't shrink. That may be what happened. Technically, it's not considered shrinkage. It may/should come back to shape. Try it, you have nothing to lose at this point.

+1 on wash and wear untill it dries.
Or if you know some one a little biger then you, ask then to wear it for a few days, then wash it and let it hang dry.

It also works for new hat's, just take a shower wearing the hat and wear it till it dries, then you will have a perfect fit.

Cheers

Kevin

O and read the tag's next time J/K

don't put it in the dryer after washing it.. hang it up somewhere. My t-shirt came out 2 size bigger.. or it just felt huge.
