With this one i am not kinda sure everytime i will buy blouse for myself and of course my husband is with me when i do the shopping he is my guardian angel heheheheheheheehhe :) I am a kind of a person if i want a certain blouse or dress i just get get and it is so irony coz my husband is the one who will say to me check the tag what kind of fabric it is made of. Then i will said why should i, then he siad to me coz if you will buy a 100% pure cotton blouse or dress in a long term or in long run it will shrink evrytime you will wash it. Then i said really? Now I kinda observed that the blouse and shirt that i bought shink hehehehehehehehehhe.It just make me laugh. So what about you have you notice or do you agree with this this fact?

The more cotton in a fabric, the more likely it is to shrink with washing. So obviously 100% cotton will most likely shrink. It actually benefits me when I'm unable to find something small enough for me if I see that it's 100% cotton, I know that it'll fit me better once I wash it. It's useful and I've definitely noticed this with my clothes. It just sucks when clothes shrink that you don't want to shrink.
