    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

Does this "trick" work to unshrink a dress shirt?

    I would doubt it, frankly. But if your shirts are otherwise ruined, what do you have to lose? Try it and report back.

    this might work with a knit like a t shirt
    i doubt it will work with a woven shirt

    you can pull a bit when the shirt is wet,, but you won't get much.

    I have better success with dress shirts by washing them in cold, letting the washer spin dry them and then ironing and stretching them, while they're still wet from the wash. Each shirt is different, but depending on how much they shrank, you may have some luck.
