As to being able to put on the MOS suit and look built. Well if your similar in size to Cavil sorta.
Maguire Spider-man figured this out. They used a muscle suit and and airbrushing. Routh's suit had padding but it wasn't really built around his muscles. nor did it enhance it. It's kinda odd seeing as the BTS played around with padding that really came through.
they did the same for Cavill's torso and shoulders
