Gym tops for the long and apple shaped of body

I'm long in the torso and also apple shaped. Where can I get t shirts for the gym that don't make me look like I'm about to give birth? Is that even possible?

I know it's dull but... anyone?

Sorry I don't really know specifically for your shape but my favourite sports clothes come from GAP, misguided, New balance and Nike x good luck !

Do any of those brands do longer t shirts? I think gap used to be on the long side IIRC.

I'm similar to you and I found the thing that made a bigger difference than a long top was a high waisted gym trouser that holds you in a bit. I wear Nike high waist pants, a Nike Sports bra or Ivy Park vest, then any t-shirt you like over the top.

Ah ok, thanks for the tip.

I wear quite a lot of Gap sportswear, definitely go for high waisted (love mine for yoga), and I wear a loose vest from Gap which is hip length on me.

I find a lot of the time it's trial and error, although I'm happy with everything I've ever had from Sweaty Betty and Lululemon...

Great, I've just ordered two tshirts from gap - they look fairly long in the photos.

My stupid body shape is further complicated by shorter than petite legs hmm but I see sweaty Betty have petite in some styles. I'll have to try them on.
