Spidey Suit Help

Hey guys, I'm about to start an Ultimate Spidey cosplay but have a kind of unique situation which has been stalling me. I am a men's physique competitor which means that from time to time I will have to increase muscle mass ready for a competition, to the point where all areas e.g. chest, arms, legs will be a bigger size. Obviously from a cosplay point of view, this could be annoying if you have a costume that is perfect fit, but then a couple of months down the line will start to stretch and with this, the quality may also decline.

With this in mind, does anybody have any advice about what kind of size I should look to build maybe take the measurements I have now and add an inch all round, just to give it that bit of extra stretch seen as though I know I'll be trying to increase my size in the near future. Or do you think if I gave my current measurements, the fabric would be able cope with increases of a couple of inches here and a couple of inches there, seen as though it's not like I'm going to turn into Bane overnight?

I hope this made sense guys, I know it might sound like a weird situation to be in. But I hope some people might have some experience of them putting on or losing a few lbs and the effect it has had on their suit.

Thanks guys!

What I think that would work well is having more than one suit. You could have one suit for when your physique is smaller, and another suit for when you have a bigger physique. That's as far as I can help.

I couldn't agree with this enough. I got bigger and my suit doesn't fit me anymore. I always tare the seams when I take it on and off. It's time to sell ow because of it.

Thanks guys, I guess there is no real way around it. Kinda sucks knowing a suit you love won't fit anymore but oh well!
