Creased and wrinkled shirt seams out of the dryer.

Some of my t-shirts always come out of the dryer with severe wrinkles / creases on the seams around the waist or sleeves. Shown here. What am I doing wrong? [more inside]

Recurring folds in my shirts

Sometimes after I buy a shirt there's this sudden fold that happens along front placket. I can iron it, but it takes time and ends up not looking nice and just comes back anyway. What is likely causing this to happen? Is there any way for me to prevent it? Here's a picture.

Why do T-shirts get shorter and wider?

Why do T-shirts become wider and shorter over time, and not the reverse? And is there any minimal-effort way to avoid this? [more inside]

Why is my shirt all bumpy?

I have a short sleeve shirt that consistently comes out of the drier "bumpy" all over. There is a very repetitive pattern on the shirt like a checkerboard. The pattern alternates bumps and depressions. I can easily get the bumps out by ironing the shirt, but I'm lazy and would much rather just dry the shirt. Is there anything I can do to avoid the pattern? Or, should I just give up and relegate the shirt to my "do not wear because it's too hard to clean" bin? The shirt is 81% polynosic rayon and 19% polyester.
