    With 40 inch shoulders and a 32 inch waist I can't find shirts that fit. They are all too loose at the waist or tight or dig into my arm pits.

    Geek is the same way. Try Express and Old Navy, those tend to work for him. For Old Navy, I think it's the vintage cut, or something like that. He occasionally gets lucky at the GAP and Dillard's.

    I'm starting to get that way too :-( [ or is it :-) ]. I have lots of medium size t-shirts that dig into my armpits. I really like some of them a lot (band t-shirts and stuff), but they look kind of ridiculous on me now. They bunch up alot around/below my chest.

    This post made me laugh, I was beginning to think I am abnormal - who's boobs get bigger when losing weight???? And my hips and arse look bigger because my waist an stomach are smaller! Lol :-)

    Same problem, 40" chest and 30" waist. Just realized 1/3 of my shirts don't fit anymore. Glad I kept some fat boy clothes.

    I can't imagine buying clothes for fit men. My husband is slender with a small upper body and even clothes sized medium are HUGE over the stomach. Target has some athletic cuts, but I think they are for men like him- athletic=no beer gut, but they seem to fit his shoulders and chest which are not built. I think athletic is code for you don't have a gut.

    I guess that is why you still see body builders in those awful Zubah pants and crop tops, LOL!

    I've been having more issues with jeans, lately, more than shirts. My wife manages to find decent shirts at Express or somewhere (I guess I don't really know).

    However, with the lifting I've been doing, all of the 29-30" waist jeans I got a couple years ago are now too tight in the thighs. I can't even take a full normal stride wearing those jeans, even though the waist still fits fine. Thankfully the Lucky Brand loose fit jeans are pretty awesome. No one else seems to be jeans for guys that lift. Even my boxer briefs are too tight in the thighs these days, and tend to ride up.

    My leg lifts are going much more smoothly than my upper-body lifts. :-[

    Having a UK small size 10 waist, size 12 hips and wearing a 36-38 bra with a "slightly over a D" cup. And having to buy clothes that flatter me... :/

    I swear, EVERY dress and pencil-skirt I own is loose at the waist, because I need a 12 to accomodate my hips... THIS is why I live in "oh so 'femenine'!" jeans and T-shirts, people...

    Preaching to the choir, hun. Size 2 hips, size 0 waist, 30DD tits, and size 2 shoulders. If it fits in the tits and shoulders, it's too big in the waist. If it fits at the waist, I can't get it over the hips or to button across the chest. I finally gave up and started tailoring my own shit, because I got tired of nothing ever fitting.

    Good thing us Paleo gals can make jeans and a tee sexy anyhow, eh?
    I would try and tailor my own stuff, but I haven't done it in so long and I don't want to mess with my pretty dresses, so I go for belts. I'm a bit (OK, very) vain about showing off my waist "properly". If I'm in loose clothing I'm not bothered, but if it hugs my shape and is loose at the waist that CAN'T BE.
