Halloween is coming close and I‘m frustrated with finding a correct sized flight suit.
I am exactly 5.10 and 182 lbs.
What I have here:
- Truspec 38R
- Truspec 36S
- Carter Industries (?) 38R.
inseam much too long, can‘t remember the rest. Have to try it on again, put the damn rag in a shelf months ago. Felt like a baby in a playsuit.
This was my first suit. So...went one size down which was 36S. Small because of the much too long inseam on the 38R. Also Truspec. The damn thing came in the mail and I‘ve tried it on: legs / inseam a little bit shortet than on the 38R. Was ok...crotch too tight (I wore skinny jeans under the suit!), much too tight around the belly...looked myself in the mirror: ridicolous!
When I‘ve stretched my arms out in front of me - very tight on the back / shoulders. Sleeves too short with arms stretched out. Overall the inseam was ok but that was all...crotch area too tight, around the belly...shoulders...sleeves ok when arms loosely on the side but too short when I bend down or stretch my arms out.
Ok - two flightsuits for the trash.
Third purchase: a used Carter (?)38R.
Arrived in the mail...inseam was shorter than on the truspec 36S. Funny! Belly...the same like on the 36S. Looking like a knockwurst. Ridicolous.
Carter 38R flightsuit much more accurate than the Truspec. This was the only benefit of it.
Pics will follow, too annoying via mobile phone uploading them here.
What would be the next choice? 40S? 40R?
I can‘t visit a store and try these things since we don‘t have this stuff here in europe.
So: halloween‘s coming close...buying only online just always have to guess sizewise...time runs out waiting for it to arrive here...money down the drain and no flight suit for halloween cause too late.
Slowly I think I‘m deformed or something.
Anyone 5.10, 182lbs with the same problem??
Pics will follow.
