View Full Version : New to suit question

Hi all,

I'm looking at getting my first suit (single ply). Would there be any benefit in getting a slightly bigger suit to begin with? ie a 44 instead of 42

You'd want single ply to fit pretty tight, or it isn't going to give you much.

Greg -

It really depends on your build and that specific suit. When I was built more like a bodybuilder I would sometimes have to get a suit sized for a 220 even though I was 198, otherwise getting it on would take 4 people and a Surgeon.

The best thing to do with any equipment is to call the person selling it (website or company) and ask them about the sizing. Tell them your build and what you are looking for and they should be able to get you sized up right - they have the most experience with that brand and that particular suit.

Hope this helps...

Are you going to wear briefs under the suit?
