Before attempting to clean cotton, we suggest checking the care instructions for the specific item before washing. Breathable, durable and comfortable, it’s easy to see why cotton is such a popular fabric. Whether it is made from pure cotton or a cotton-blend, any garments that contain cotton are prone to shrinkage when exposed to heat. To prevent items from shrinking, always follow the instructions on the care label carefully and machine wash at a temperature of 30°C or below. Avoid tumble drying, instead, air dry away from direct heat such as sunlight or a radiator. Discover our selection of designer shorts for women and shop new-season and sale pieces now.
