I'm new here as well as completely new to Aikido. Over the past 3 days I have purchased a total of 3 gis, none of which seem to fit me properly.
The gi I currently have is a Judogi which seems to be a bit big for me. The arms are fine, the skirts are too, however it seems large in the waist. I say this because when I put my belt on, it creases in the back. It isn't flat.
I have washed it 3 times now at varying temperatures but am not sure if it's shrinking. I was wondering if you guys had any tips on how I could shrink it down more?
It is a blend of 35% cotton 65% poly.
Please note that I do not own a dryer.
Thank you in advance for your time and answers
