My gym issued gift certificates for New Balance for personal training. I reached a deadline for using up the $150. credit so I went shopping yesterday.
I bought a fleece hoody and really great exercise pants that fit like a glove and show my gym toned calves. However, even the extra large top was kind of clingy and showed all the fat rolls I sport near my waist. I decided to buy the outfit and forgo wearing it until summer. Hopefully, my tires will go down by then.
My frustration is: "Why do sports companies make such clingy, smallish sizes?" The same can be said for Nike. I think they are missing catering to a larger clientele who in spite of not being a size 8, still want to exercise and look great doing it. I tried on men's shirts and although they gave more at the waist they also were baggy on the shoulder.
I got the shirt because it was a lovely colour and will wear it by the summer even it does show some jiggle.
