I know it's been a mystery to us all contemplating the whole Paris Hilton wearing that huge white Moni Splendor only to order it and have it appear to have shrunk in the wash! So I emailed the company directly and found out the most amazing thing! Basically what they said is that the white leathers (vanilla etc.) are not treated and therefore not washed! It's the colored leathers when they're tinted, get washed and therefore shrink! Brilliant! It's like a pair of cotton pants! So guys, I think that pretty much solves the mystery, don't you think? Wow. That's why!
