    if it is cotton...warmer water will shrink it...hot water will shrink it ALOT...but if its polyster then u might have a problem with shrinking it...warm water is the best bet...just not to warm

    Yeah; a polyester shirt won't shrink at all, no matter how you wash or dry it.

    Have a swim at the beach in Santa Cruz....or points north.
    Well RichieRich already made that joke.

    Shrinking a medium to a small-and-a-half? Ja, all you have to do is chust increase your pump-a-tude, girly mahn.

    The dryer may be useful, too. It will depend on the stretch direction and the fabrication. Give it a shot.
