How much will a rayon shirt shrink if you dry it?

Not all rayon garments are the same. Some contain a special finish which allows them to be washed and dried without any shrinking occurring. Other rayon items may shrink as much as two or three sizes. Machine washing and drying isn't recommended as the tumbling can damage the fabric. As always, be sure to read the tag and follow the specific cleaning instructions for each item.
