concur with problem more than likely being undersided pipe from hot water heater to your shower. should be 3/4" supply all the way to the mixing valve. you mentioned a water softener - being in that business in the north east 9don't know where you are) another possible cause, though somewhat less likely is that scale has built up inside your pipes and thereby reducing the flow of water. you didnt mention when the softener was installed, but if it was just recently , after 10 or more years the build up can be quite significant. remember just a 10% build up of scale inside your pipes can lead to almost a 30% reduction in heating efficiency in your system, so check your softener to ensure it is functioning, and take good care of it

good luck
