i have a 10 deep hoodie from last season that i always thought was one size too big on me. it's 100% cotton, so i'm thinking it should shrink; i only wore it once then put it in the closet. looking at it now, it's way too big. i've thought about maybe selling it or trying to shrink it intentionally by hot water hot dry inside out, but was wondering if anyone here had any experience. i saw the other thread about shrinking tshirts and was wondering if the same principles apply here, although hoodies tend to have a lot of other factors as well (metal zipper parts, etc), i'm not sure if after shrinking all the parts shrink uniformly and in ther right proportions. any advice would be appreciated.

Take it to the cleaners instead of using hot water to shrink it.

ive shrunken a couple 100% cotton hoodies perfectly. well they ended up fitted the way i wanted. all i did was wash em in cold, then dry them on high until no part of the hoodie was wet.

i recently shrunk a kayo hoodie in size L (i guess they run big cuz i usually wear xl-xxl in hoodies cuz im tall). but this L kayo hoody was seriously huge, it was so long. so all i did was wash in cold, n dried it inside out.

the finished product was perfect. fit exactly the way i wanted it to.

He's sooooooooo right...... dont listen to anyone else...... cause the zipper is plastic and polyester it wont match up with the shrinkage of the fabric....and then you got the whole bulging and wavyness thing going with your hoody....

Yeah, sell it, then save up for a new one.

The zipper is gonna be all fucked up, and then you're not gonna be able to sell it, do not listlen to any dumbass telling you to do it, becuase they obviosley don't know fabrics, or plastics for that matter.

Sell it, save up and buy a new one.

realize that it will never shrink to an exact large, it will shrink, but ussually it shrinks to short to really be able to rock right. It becomes wider then it is long.
