    Hey all!

    I've just purchased a Keiko Raca Gi Limited white in size A2.
    Just like this one: Keiko Raa - Virtual Store

    I'm 5'8" and about 65kgs slim build.
    The Gi is huge on me (both top and pants) and i want to shrink it.

    Will it shrink if i hot wash and tumble dry the Gi?
    Or should i try and sell this one and get an A1 cause i'll be wasting my time?

    Thanks in advance!

    A1 will be too small.
    Just wash it and toss it in the dryer.
    Repeat the process until it's the perfect fit.
    After that never put it in the dryer again.

    Anyone interested in purchasing any of the Keiko Raca Limited GI's.....They SHRINK BIG TIME!!!!

    I washed mine in cold water and then put it in the dryer for about 20mins on low heat.
    I took the GI out before it was even completely dry and it now fits me almost perfect.

    I won't be using the dryer anymore on this GI.

    I'm surprised how much it did shrink though. My advice to anyone looking at this Gi if your undecided on size is to definitely get the bigger one.
