Breathing Room Business Apparel
I expanded my "Breathing Room" collection (clothing made specifically to fit the wide shoulders and muscular bodies of female swimmers) to include business clothes for professional environments.
It can be difficult for female athletes to find clothing that fits properly because standard sizing does not account for muscular proportions. It can be especially hard to find business clothing that fits well because business clothes often have sleeves and are generally made in fabrics that do not stretch, which can make clothing even more restrictive in the shoulders. I drafted original patterns for each piece based on body measurements of female swimmers. I designed shirts, blazers, dresses, coats, pants, and skirts, and am continuing to design more outfits, such as blazer-style dresses and different styles of shirts and jackets.
