Been doing BJJ for about 4 months and finally got a decent gi. I got a gold weave mundial Atama. I have 2 questions... I have an A4 top which is 200-250, I am 217 at the moment. It is a tad big, but just a little in the sleeves and maybe shoulders. The girl at Atama said to wash it in cold water first, see if it shrinks a bit and if not, try washing it in warm water and it should shrink a bit. Anyone familiar with this? Also, is there a way to soften up the gi? After they air dry they can practically get up and walk on their own. I was hoping the Atama top would be softer. The pants definitely are...any suggestions?
