    Any insight from other guys that have large builds? I need cammies fit a large person but not someone that is obese. All the tops I try on are extremely wide in the stomach area while being very short(bell shirtish) XL seems to be good fit as far as shoulders/arms but definitely too wide and not long enough. Give me some brands if you've had success

    I'm a natural pro bodybuilder and the dickies, large, are a little tight in the chest and shoulders, but don't give me that bell top look. I had a XL last semester and hated it, was constantly drooping in patients faces when reaching across them.

    Im no bodybuilder, but have plenty of muscle. (Im 5'9", 250lbs.) I wear a size large in Cherokee tops. I have recently discovered that Dickies made FOR MEN and Sketchers made FOR MEN fit me REALLY well, and are really comfortable. Best thing to do is find a plave that has a huge selection and try some stuff on. I have to stay away from the "unisex" stuff because the pants are too tight in the crotch and thigh areas. Lol

    If youre having too much trouble finding the right fit for the shirt, get the one that fits the best where you want it, then go to a drycleaner/tailor shop, they should be able to take out the slack in the stomach area and make it fit real nicely for you, for a few bucks, could be any where from 5-15 bucks and most of the time they are pretty fast at making the adjustments.

    If you want to make the top fit just use a shirt that really fits you like body wise and match your scrub top inside out to the shirt. Mark the area, use a sewing machine to stick up the side, try it on and if it works cut off the excess fabric.

    I saw that on a website I stumbled. worked.

    For the pants I just wear EMT pants. I need a belt other wise I look like I should be crip-walking the halls of the hospital
