Oh dear, must be "heart-pain" for u. Doubt that it can be "saved".

Don't think the shop will allow for exchange of item since the washing instruction indicates "line dry" only. :idea: How about going to a laundry shop and ask for advice?

Actually, something similar happened to me too. It was a new dress that shrank. In the end, decided to use it as a blouse instead :roll: :P

From what i googled, the only way is to wet it; then stretch it and wear it till it is dry. May have to repeat a few times to get it into the right size and fit again.

Hanging to dry will not work as it will not be stretch correctly.

Then again, maybe you can wear that shrunken blouse at home, your hubby may just love it :wink: :siam:
