Amassing muscle isn't solely an exercise game. Genetics count too, and some of us just aren't built to carry the quads of a Greek god. Which is totally fine. Say you do want to bulk up a little, however, know that you needn't guzzle protein shakes like a gym bunny on speed. Simply follow Eddie Redmayne's lead, instead.
During a Comic-Con panel for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, the 36-year-old used two tricks to dress himself bulkier: layers and embroidery. The triple entente of an Oxford shirt, sweater, and jacket is an easy way to craft a thicker silhouette up-top. Plus, the addition of a simple print, in this case, an assortment of crowns, snakes and bumblebees, adds further bulk by creating shape on Redmayne's upper half.
Keep this lesson in mind.
