I just got a new Aristocrat soaker in XL. I had one a while back in Large and we had leaks, I thought it was pulled too thin over DSs big diaper butt. It always leaked out the top of the back at night where there is only one layer.<br><br>
anyways now I have an XL that is too big it falls down when he runs. I think he may have thinned out, I sold the Large so I can't compare now. I thought that maybe i could shrink it. Should I try it? If so, How? Just wash it with a regular load of laundry or in the sink with hot water?

if you try to shrink it, it will felt and won't be stretchy anymore. Just an FYI <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

The other thing is that it might shrink way too much and not fit at all and like todzwife said it wont be stretchy.<br><br>
Knit shrinks differently than jersey or flannel wool. I would be nervous to do it.<br><br>
Maybe you can trade someone for another large. Sounds like your large might have just need a good lanolizing to keep it from wicking.
