Stiff big collared show shirt help needed.

I am showing WP for the first time this weekend just for fun. I have two show shirts. The one is a pretty basic tan shirt that was made for me, and fits awesome, but I think I will keep that one for the western dressage classes. The other shirt is a fancier "brand name" shirt, but it has a really big/stiff collar that just doesn't sit properly around my neck.

The tag warns that this will be an issue, but that it will improve as it is worn. Is there a tip/trick to help the collar "relax" other than just wearing it?

It came with a scarf, but I turned that into a cat toy...which in hindsight was likely a mistake as that would have helped the collar issue....oops.

I don't know how "fancy" the shirt is, but, if it won't ruin it, maybe a couple trips through the clothes dryer(wet it first). It helps soften other clothing. Or maybe get another scarf.

is the collar so upright and stiff because there maybe some stiff material between the fabric on the collar you could remove and then restitch the collar closed after? i have seen mens dress shirts with that stiff paper/cardboard stuff inside the collar before.

I think the collar is just starched. No inserts.

I think that making it damp may be the solution.
