I just got a 2nd hand squat suit. it's a size 48. I was measuring myself and my thighs are 26.5 and hips are a 43. Both #'s are a wee bit bigger than what Metal sizing chart said for that size.
So just how forgiving is this Metal suit if your a little off with the numbers? Will I still fit or would it be more like trying to put toothpaste back into the bottle? PS i weighed in today at 216. any help would be great :)

I kinda suck at getting into and being able to lift in super-tight gear. I have a 46 Ace suit and I don't think I can even get it on anymore. I weigh 178ish right now and my thighs are a bit smaller than yours. The material isn't very forgiving when trying to squeeze in and the seams on the leg are a bitch to squeeze past...the only way you will know is to try though.


The Ace material is amzing though. I love the briefs.

With the Ace the sizing is like this. If your pelvis around measures 42 add 6 inches to the number and thats what size suit you need, 48.

Have you tried out the suit yet? Im sure it should fit fine. Get ready for sime bigger squats.

The bottom cuff on the Ace is very thick, very difficult to stretch out. Give it a try, might need some suit slippers or garbage bags to get the legs pulled up high enough.

Or Under Armor. But the suit has to be like super tight, other wise it will just sinch the suit up a you go down int the hole and you will loose tightness of the suit
