When I was fat (at 5'6" I weighed in at about 240) I had to wear extra or 2x large shirts (tees and button downs) and I remember thinking to myself that the shoulder seams (see link) were always way over the shoulder and down my upper arm (loose) but tight in the mid-section (big belly).
About half way through my weight loss a colleague pointed out that maybe I ought to throw away my fat clothes and get ones that fit, she was right, I hadn't bought new clothes yet because I was still in denial that I was losing weight.
So I bought two new button down shirts and when I wore them I made mention to that same colleague that I feel like I look better but that the shoulder seams are still hanging over onto my upper arm. She then said that where the shoulder seam meet the sleeve seam is suppose to be at the corner of my shoulder....I then told her I couldn't find any.
Note - This next part is where some would have been "put-off" by her comment but I was not.
She said that I needed bigger shoulders to fill the shirt out.
I don't have the pic anymore but I had taken a selfie of my arms and they were looking shapely as I had been doing dumbbell curls for about 2 months at that time but my shoulders were tiny because I didn't work on them, EVER! I didn't think that was important, hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now my shoulders are big (a little bragging doesn't hurt) and I fill out the shirt pretty good but I now notice men wearing shirts that have the same thing happening to them as I did for me back then, saggy shoulder seams.
Question: Have you ever noticed on men or women? Is there a clothing issue you use to have with yourself that you no longer have because you're in better shape but see that others have?
like I said, a weird question.
