Look, it happens. Nothin' to be embarrassed about. Below is a example of shrinkage in our Men's Large shirt (Anvil 980, ringspun cotton, 4.5 oz and/or Next Level 3600 ringspun cotton, 4.3oz). The blue blipshift lightweight fitted 4.5oz shirt was washed once in warm water and dried on medium heat. The orange shirt, also 4.5oz, is new, unwashed. Our heavy duty Hanes 5180 6oz shirt will shirt less resulting in a boxier cut and fuller sleeves. Your shrinkage may vary. For example, if your better half is a germaphobe and washes your shirt in boiling water then throws it in the oven to dry, the shirt will probably shrink more. If you hand wash only with ice cold mountain spring water and air dry with the breeze from a spinning hamster wheel, it'll probably shrink less.
Our Men's Long Sleeve shirt (Hanes Beefy-T 5186, ringspun cotton, 6 oz) has similar qualities as the Anvil 980, but heavier weight cotton, which is good for blocking punches from angry racecar drivers. We don't recommend fighting though and why would ya want to get your nice tee dirty anyway? Women's shirts are Anvil 880 and are similar to the Men's Anvil 980 except... well, made to fit women.
Hoodies are Gildan 18500 (no-pill Air Jet yarn, 50/50 cotton/poly, 7.75oz). Air Jet yarn? That's right, woohoo! Expect less shrinkage with hoodies (50/50 cotton/poly blend).
Our Women's Tank Top (Next Level 3533 4.3oz, 57% cotton/38% poly/5% spandex, Heather Grey is 90% Cotton / 10% poly blend) top is nicely fitted. Not much shrinkage here when washed and dried but because of the spandex, we recommend ordering a size up. The length of the tanks are very generous.
Non-models wearing lightweight fitted 4.5oz tees. Every one's got a different body type and fit preference so just take these as examples. All tees were washed once in warm water and dried on medium heat.
