Will spandex shrink?

Answer

No, Spandex doesn't shrink because of its elastomer properties. It has incredible shape memory, and only after a few years of wear will it begin to lose these properties.

So, if your going to have the clothing item for a few years, I would be more worried about it losing its shape memory and sagging instead of bouncing back to its original shape, than it shrinking.

Hope this helps.
