My all of my cotton shirts seem to perform origami in the wash and I can't recover them. What's happening?

Every single cotton shirt I own does the same thing - the front starts folding in a line down the button holes and the back tail seam starts rolling itself up. It happens with different powders, temperatures, and even different washing machines and ironing the shirts doesn't make them flatten back down.
These are different brands using different cottons so it's not a case of crap quality clothing.
What the hell is going on with them? Does this happen to everyone or am I inadvertantly buying Japanese cotton with a flair for origami?
