Grant Gustin is clearly eager to prove that Barry Allen's new suit looks better than most people think. The star of The Flash Season 5 has just posed in his new costume to confirm that it fits him properly.

Fans recently got a glimpse of the new suit in a leaked photo from the show's set. The unflattering image had people concerned that Gustin was "too thin," prompting the actor to clap back at the body shaming comments. The suit has obviously been altered since the leaked picture and Gustin proudly posed in the updated version in a recent Instagram post.

Gustin's new photo certainly proves that the suit has a better fit. The actor declared that he was allowed to share the image and expressed pride for the costume. "I was clearly feeling myself. I truly love this suit," he added in the caption.

Gustin has previously hinted at the suit being tailored for the new season. The star of The CW series wrote in his post against body shaming that fans can expect an updated suit.

"I love the suit that has been designed for me, and I think when everyone sees it in its entirety, you will love it too. Things have been adjusted since that leaked shot was taken, and more things will continue to be adjusted until it feels right."

Gustin has played the DC superhero since 2014. The character has appeared in other CW shows like Arrow and Supergirl.

The Flash Season 5 will premiere on The CW on October 9.
