No, my shirts did not/have not stretched out permanently. They went back to normal after laundering!

Once you have more of a bump your shirts will be permanently stretched, the fabric has only so much give before it is forever stretched.

My shirts went back to normal after they went through the dryer.  As long as you heat them, they should shrink back (if they’re cotton).  Synthetic fibers shouldn’t hold the stretch after you take them off.

Hmmm…my sister borrowed a lot of my clothes when she was pregnant (I was losing weight and she was gaining a bump. Only time in my life I’ve been smaller then my sister since birth!). I’d say about half of them returned to normal size when washed, but half of them were stretched beyond redemption (mostly the shirts she borrowed toward the end of her pregnancy). Really though, even those stretched out, most of them were still wearable if you’re not into skin-tight clothes.
