Tops for muscular shoulders and arms

Hoping for some help please. My 16 yr old DD has naturally broad shoulders, plus she does a lot of sport and training, specifically indoor climbing, and she has very muscular shoulders and upper arms. She really struggles to find tops and tshirts with sleeves that fit her, and doesn’t want to wear vest tops all the time. Does anyone have any experience of this and any suggestions of where she can buy clothes??

Thank you!

If she wants t-shirts, try slim fit men's t-shirts, from somewhere like Next, they are broader in the shoulders and have bigger arm holes, without looking too boxy and manly!

I have broad shoulders and go for a size or two up in tops (I am a 12-14 on the bottom usually and buy a 16 on the top), as I can't bear too tight clothes that I can't move my arms forward in without them pulling across my back/shoulders. Also, try and go for a v neck and a longer fit as they tend to look a better shape on me (I'm about 5'9" though).
