So yeah, he should have always been able to do this. What's odd is that there is no reason why he should have needed to take his shirt off. I mean the guy wears gloves and it seems to work.

Peter's new body that emerged from the cocoon in "the other" was bulkier than his 'old' one.
he simply ripped his shirt, it didn't fit any more. that's why he had to rescue the girl without a shirt, 'til he had a chance to create a new costume that fits.
