From what I have seen most singlets are sized by Bodyweight. Just do a search on Singlets and look at the sizing charts.

I would prolly go one size bigger then they call for just for the added room. There aint anything worse then getting a singlet that is to small and everyone being able to tell if you are circumsized or not :)

There are plenty of places out there to get them and even to get custom ones if you want to spend the money. I myself would just suggest calling Inzer or House of Pain and getting one from there. But those are regular "Matman" singlets and I find that they have a very small inseam on them and I usually wear a pair of bike shorts under mine.

But if you look around you can find one with a longer inseam so you can eleminate the need for spandex shorts underneath them.

Wolfy!!!

Those would be somewhat thicker than these right?

That's one of the things I was worried about! lol

Thanks for the info, I was leaning towards the Inzers, I hear they're pretty comfortable.

Yeah it looks like that one is very tight. Almost like an OLY lifter would wear. I bought that metal one in an XL and it fits pretty good at 175.

Would that Metal singlet be allowed in Raw meets?

I would think so. Shoot them an email though just to be sure!

Oh and for the record. It's not very thick. Its more stretchy than a regular t-shirt and a little lighter.

Sweet. So if the Xl fits you good at 175, I might have to get the 2xl. Hmm...

Why do people have to wear a singlet? Is it to make it easier for the judges?

singlets are required when benching and for those who prefer to compete raw. or you can wear one outside your deadlift/squat suit.

LouPac, im 5'7". goto www.plgearonline.com or www.liftinglarge.com <----there both titan dealers and have a sizing chart. email your weight/height and see what they recommend

I am 5'8" around 300 lbs. and I wear an extra small. I like them so tight you can see that I am circumsized and the stretch marks in my belly. As my good friend Paris Hilton would say "That's hot!"

It ain't tight enough to attract Paris Hilton, so I think you're actually okay.

Other than stuffing a sock in your crotch you look fine.

Dude, it looks fine!
You want to borrow my hot pink singlet?
I was at a meet awhile back, and one of the guys was there to compete, but he forgot his singlet. I was the only person in the building with an extra singlet. It was definitely a size too small for him, but he did get lucky in that my extra one was the camouflage singlet, and not the one with the leopard spots or one of my other brightly colored singlets. (I had on my gold sparkly one).
To top things off the guy had a bright green mohawk!
