I just received my shirt but it is bigger than what I was expecting. Should I get a smaller size?

March 26 2014

All of our shirts are made from 100% cotton, which means they will shrink when using a dryer on high heat. We took into account this fabric shrinkage when creating our patterns, making the shirts slightly larger. An unwashed Pladra may tend to fit slightly bigger and longer. When machine dried shirts on average shrink 1-2".  We have done extensive research on our sizing and our shirts fit very close to standard sizing from other brands you would see in the market.  So for example, if you normally wear a medium, we recommend getting a medium Pladra- while it may fit bigger before wash, it should fit you just right after standard laundry care.  Feel free to check out our sizing page for more details.
