Please recommend a jersey for guys with "moobs"

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Not for me but for my cousin...yeah that's who.

Seriously, I'm not into showing off my cheese chest and tiny, hard nips. All jerseys I've worn, even the loose ones, cling and leave not much to the imagination. I'd wear a black jersey but would probably die of heat exhaustion after 5 miles.

You'll get cling no matter what jersey you choose. 20mph winds will do that.

Your best best is to wear a really tight undershirt or a HR monitor strap that can lessen the effects. Wear bibs, if possible, too.

Before I lost weight I found the Nike Jerseys the best in hiding my Moobs.

How about a Jog Bra?



Otherwise, be secure enough in your manhood, and don't bother.

Yeah, real good threads. The same old sh1t that gets asked every week. When was the last time a moobs thread appeared? That's right! Never! I'm providing a public service asking these tough questions

There are minimizer bras for people who do not want to stick out so far, kind of like gaffs. Try a specialty lingerie shop. The older ladies had seen everything.

Just wear a nice snug base layer--Craft, Descente, etc... That would probably help.

Seriously...if you feel uncomfortable wearing jerseys at your current weight and/or level of fitness...save your money and don't wear them or wear a t-shirt over your current ones; and work at it until you do feel comfortable wearing them.

If weight and fitness level is not the issue...there are plenty of resources on the internet and relatively inexpensive equipment available in order for you to tighten up your chest.

My point? Don't let "cyclist peer pressure" make you do something you don't feel comfortable with.
