So I'm muscular. Obviously, as a level 10 gymnast I train, A LOT. To be honest I don't mind my toned, flat stomach or my legs, lol But my back, shoulders, and arms bother me. I have been told I have "man arms" and "wide shoulders" and that I have a "big, muscular back." It makes it impossible to find a dress that flatters me! My back, shoulders and arms always look weird, like they shouldn't be as wide and big as they are! My non gym friends all have thin delicate arms and shoulders and they look so beautiful. They tease me a lot and even though I know they're kidding it really gets to me. Guys have told me that my arms, back and shoulders are gross and not feminine. I also can't find any shirts that look good on me! The sleeves are always too tight and if I find some that are not too tight then the rest of the shirt is too big! I look ridiculous and being a teenager im becoming so self conscious with my "muscular gymnast body." ): What should I do!? I know it helps me with gym but... Has anyone else struggled with something like this?
