Has anyone tried this? Did it result in any shrinkage or negative effects?
Thanks for your replies
I purchase white judo-style gis. I select a top whose sleeves reach to my knuckles with my arms held comfortably out in front of me. Then I wash it in hot water, and throw it in the dryer on high. Shrinks down to my size nicely. Then I can use a little bleach, or whatever I need to keep it clean and toss it in the dryer or not -- it only shrinks the first time if you abuse it from day one. Consistent bleach use of course will make the gi softer and will make it fall apart quicker.
