    I was just wondering if i can just wash and dry this Gi without having to worry about additional shrinkage. I guess also im worried about the lapel getting messed up and all that, but it would be nice if i didnt have to hang dry like i do my other Gi.

    also if it does shrink a tiny bit it should still be ok.

    Personally, i wouldnt.

    Unless you want it to shrink a bit. And after a few times in the dryer, it gets pretty soft, and too flexible.

    Totally not true.

    It will not shrink very much at all. I've never had a Koral's collar get messed up by the dryer, nor have I ever heard of it happening.

    Also, it's not the dryer that makes your gi soft and flexible - fabric softener does that. And I would suggest using fabric softener.
