    Nope.

    The only other thing you could try is to go on a diet.

    Dryers are bad. They shrink everything.

    quite impossible to restore shrunk goretex material. Only heat can weaken the material for expansion, but there is no way to stretch fabric in a consistent fashion to make it larger in a uniform manner.

    before more damage can be done onto it, suggest give it away or donate it.
