Athletic builds present fashion frustration

NEW YORK--Fitting a fit frame is not always easy.

While clothing designers and retailers have given more attention lately to finding solutions for their petite and plus-size customers, those women with athletic builds, who could be tall or short, more narrow or wide, have their own set of dressing challenges that certainly do not have a one-size-fits-all solution.

Rosy Hodge, a pro surfer, has "buff arms" that she tries to balance with colorful scarves, while fellow surfer Kassia Meador wears a lot of oversized tanks and T-shirts even though she is unsure they flatter her body type.

Rachel Roosevelt, a former member of the U.S. Ski Team, now wears mostly skirt suits to her job as a macroeconomics researcher, but nothing too short, considering her conservative career environment. She also stands 5-foot-10 (1.77 meters), and that has meant having to curl her legs in awkward positions under some conference tables.

Still, she says, she's most comfortable in sneakers and her gym clothes.
