Body con

Clothes that fit tighter than a body wrap. Derives from "body conscious", and seeing as though eating is almost impossible in this look, you will indeed be very conscious of your body.

See also "tailored" (not baggy), or its antonym "unstructured" (baggy); "strong" (exaggerated shoulders, scary shoes, heavy accessories. Not to be confused with actual human strength that might require physical bulking up. Any increase in size should be done purely sartorially, so, whoa, Nelly, put down that protein shake).
