Answer

Polyester is a manmade cloth made to resist shrinking, wrinkles and stretching so it is not likely that a 100% polyester material will shrink when washed and dried. Polyester is frequently mixed with other materials like cotton, which can make a garment more vulnerable to shrinking depending on the fraction of polyester to cotton.
