Thanks

I don't think it's down to quality of shirts at all.

I stretch the collar straight and flat when I hang it up to dry and have been fine with all types of shirt. If you're tumble-drying, well that's a different matter!

My collars do this and all I do is uncurl them with my fingers. After a few times they remain uncurled. Make sure your fingers are clean.

Maybe the stays don't reach the ends, due to stitching. Or, less likely, the stays could be the wrong size.

Same here. I also don't tumble dry and I insert the plastic collar stays after removing them from the wash and let them air dry. Seems to work pretty well.

I mean, you could just spend a little and get them pressed once in a while if they aren't curling until after several wears.

Buy better shirts I'm afraid. You can ameliorate the problem as suggested but better shirts would prevent it in the first place
