Used to be I could just pick out almost any small or even medium shirt and take it home without even trying it on.

I fully realize and acknowledge that I have done this to myself, so I'm not looking for sympathy. But still. Aren't there other 40-yr-old middle-management professional women out there that have 14” biceps and torsos shaped like an upside-down piece of candy corn that need career wear? A quick peruse of the innernets shows that there is a market for this but all I can find are workout clothes.

Time to make friends with a tailor. Either that or learn to love Lycra.

I know that 99.9%* of all the folks on here are guys so I don't really expect a solution. I just wanted to vent.


*this statistic is completely made up and is not representative of any scientific empirical studies.
In relation to the bra sizing/fit...I brought this same subject up, at a different forum, and got the answer to the effect that "bras are made to fit people as they get bigger which means as they get bigger in one area they also expand in the other"...they didn't seem to comprehend that a person's back can get wider but the bust may shrink (or remain the same) and try getting a bra to fit a wider back (than the one the bra has been made for) but also to fit a smaller sized cup/bust, which the bra has been designed for...it's a no-win scenario.

Cool

I thought from the title that someone was Shopping for a "Muscular Female"...

Wrong.

If you have big bulging thighs and a modest waist—the pants have to be wide enough for the waist to pass over your thighs...

It is the same wearing pull-overs.

The waist of the shirt has to fit over your shoulders and if they're wider than your waist then it will fit your waist loosely.
