Finding clothes to fit athletic women’s bodies

I wrote this post in 2013–8 years ago!–and I’m still struggling. Then I wrote, ” I haven’t worn a button up shirt in many years. If they’re fitted, they just don’t fit. And I’m not a fan of tents.” AND I’M STILL LOOKING! what I want: a fitted women’s dress shirt without teeny tiny arms. It needs to be fitted to work well under suit jackets. Send me your recommendations! Also, pls share your struggles.

  1. This is such an interesting post! I grew my lower body quite a bit doing some heavy squats and deadlifts, I just had to buy a bigger size for jeans/pants. Aside from that, I enjoy how all types of clothes (glam,casual,etc) look on my athletic/curvy-ish frame! ❤️

  2. Maybe a man’s button-down would work better? I’ve also had pretty good luck with button-down women’s shirts through Land’s End, although they tend to be a little tight in the shoulder for me but not unwearable. I think Land’s End also has a variety of cuts in men’s shirts with different shapes in terms of chest vs waist vs arms.
