I washed my judogi and it shrunk about 2 sizes to small. I washed it in cold water like i was told but it still shrunk. Should I buy one that is a few sizes to big so it will shrink into my size next time? This one looks like long shorts on me now, haha

anyone know of a judogi maker that pre shrinks them?
Hi Chris! Cold water and line-drying should have avoided the shrinkage.

At any rate, it's hot in the dojo so you'll be able to appreciate the extra venilation.

Seriously, Kiyota, Bujin, Mugendo Budogu, Tozando, Mizuno, Hzu Judo, et al, all sell higher-grade judogi. But they ain't cheap!

Best Regards,
