Only chubby people get this worked up over the slightest hint of being called chubby

Why is it always the guys who have just started lifting who are so self concious and defensive? If you wanted to fish for compliments over losing so much weight, this really wasn't the thread to go to.

Anyway, yeah it looks like your shirt is stretching due to your waist, or alternatively the shirts you buy aren't as perfect as you think.

If you think an inch or two of waist fat circumference is causing a quality cotton shirt to expand to such ridiculous levels then you have to be a fucking moron, simple as that.

LOL. Welcome to StyleForum! You're gonna have a great ride here. lurker[1].gif

Hmmm... This thread is pretty old but anyway, I've experienced the same problem with some of my husband's shirts as well. Very unsightly and annoying (no pun intended to original poster). and yes, it happens after just one wash. My husband is particular about his shirt dimensions so I've heard every detail about this problem. The solution we came up with is buying extra long shirts and cutting the shirt to proper length but adding an elastic clear tape to the raw edge of the fabric before sewing a coverstitch with my serger.
Not sure that this might be your ideal solution since you can go buy the ones that do not stretch if you do not already own a serger.
