Body building is one way to boost your appearance and strength. However, not all clothes were made to fit muscular men. One of the most common problems body builders are faced with when shopping for clothes is that the fabric might be too loose in some areas and too tight in others, says Real Men Real Style. Here are a few tips to help you shop for the right clothes:
Go for tank tops
Bodybuilding tank tops are designed for muscular body builds. It’s one of the few things around that you can throw on that won’t make you look like you’re overweight when you’re actually in tip-top shape.
Stay away from loose clothing
Fit-wise, you might think that loose clothing is your friend. Better lose than tight, right? However, loose clothing will only hurt you since it’ll make you look even bulkier which is the last thing you want. So if you had to make a choice, go with tight over loose clothing.
Know your brand
Try out different brands. Different brands have different sizing options so you’ll need to explore. Don’t stop until you find one that works for your physique and flatters your frame. By knowing what brands and sizes work best for you, you’ll have a much better idea of what clothes to get and where to shop.
If you’ve got a large chest, then skip skinny jeans. G for lightweight fabrics and jackets that won’t bunch up or fold up. If you’ve got big legs, then go for a loose shirt for more balance. Wear patterned shirts too since they’ll draw attention to your upper torso instead of your legs.
With the right clothes, you can look good and feel good while you body build. So follow these tips and explore. That’s the best way to find out what will work best for you.
