I have washed and worn this tshirt a few times now and can honestly say it is a great little tshirt! It has remained soft, has not noticeably shrunk and the image on the front has been a conversation starter as have many of the Teddy Dog shirts. I like these shirts so much I have gifted them to my sister who is notoriously picky about what fabrics she wears. And she likes them! I am a repeat buyer as I find the fronts of the shirts amusing, and the quality of the shirts hold up over many washings. Will defined keep buying these.
