I have found those vintage Pakistani brands are shape shifters. Maybe try washing in warm...machine dry until damp and then stretch out the top part to match it and then lay it flat to dry...once it's dry put it in the dryer to lock it in? ha I dunno.

Not sure what it is with the cotton the Pakistani brands used, it's coarse, thicker threads and less of a thread count I think. I always lay those ones flat to dry...otherwise they lose form really easily.
